The other day I was reflecting on the importance of being blessed by God and how God delivers his blessings to people. And while I was researching about it I remembered a Psalm that I knew long ago.
There’s no doubt for me that the best way to find a cure for depression is being grateful for the things that we have in life. And that’s exactly what depression wants you to not feel. Depression wants you to see everything in your life darker, pointless and hopeless. Looking at your life and everything that surrounds it in this way, won’t let you ever be grateful for anything that happens to you.
How Can I Become Grateful, When I Feel So Depressed?
– It’s not for the sake to seek attention
– Your emotions are too strong to bear them
– It’s not easy
The Ultimate Way To Get Through Depression
Go back to the top and read the Psalm 1:1-3 once again. I want to share my insights on this one and tell you why I think is the ultimate way to get through depression.
Psalm 1: 1
With the first verse, we can easily understand that we become those we hang out with. God gives his blessing to those who are not wicked and don’t walk in the ways of the wicked. With this one we can refer to;
“Tell me who you walk with, and I’ll tell you who you are.”
― Esmeralda Santiago
Jesus Christ resumes the Law of God in two; 1- You shall Love God among everything else and 2- you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Reflecting on these laws day and night and learning to follow them in everything we do is a delight for the people who live in a righteous way. These are the people that God give his blessings in everything they do.
Being blessed by God will set up prosperity and abundance. That our leaf shall not wither means that our deeds don’t get dry but instead are full of life and joy for others to comfort their souls when they see it.
The conclusion that I get is that by following God and the righteous way he wants for us, he will transform the environment of our soul into a healthy, happy and joyful environment.
Being grateful will become in us as our natural state no matter what we’re facing at the moment. There will not be any room for depression when we are blessed by God and we know that God is with us because we follow his commandments.
