Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad. Proverbs 12:25
I dont know about you, but I always have time for someone that wants to give a good word, an encouraging word, or an uplifting word…it changes my day..Well, here is that prescription for getting us out of any depressing funk that can hit us when we get consumed by worry…a good word…Hmmm…Paul said, dont worry but pray, cry out to God and He will give us a peace we wont even understand (Philippians 4:6-7), Jesus told us ‘…do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?’…He also said to ‘not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.’ (both Matthew 6)…those are just a few ‘good words’ that will change our perspective in the midst of our stress and worry…we just have to look into His word for that ‘good word’ and our perspective and heart will be changed..we will have the strength to put down the tub of ben and jerry’s and start living our day with a glad heart as we trust Him…then it just may be that God has us take that word to someone else and encourage them, making their heart glad…Nothing is impossible with God, so why should we worry, right?
