He Has Lifted You
This is for the girls and women out there, or maybe even some men as well. Who feel the pressure of life. I hope this will encourage you...
From experiences I've had, I thought and for a while had trained myself to believe that good things will never come to me. If it does, I won't possess it for long. And that included friends, love, material things, happiness... You name it! I was prone for disappointment and setbacks.
When I started to believe this, it made room for depression. You can be in a room full of people and still feel like you're the only one there. Some days you'll cry and no one will understand why. When you try to explain... They encourage you to the best they can. But no one will ever understand the weight you carry on your own back. Everyone handles things differently. What will work for one may not work for another.
Sister, if you are out there and you are battling depression, start speaking good into your own life! Look in the mirror and tell yourself, I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE! God has given us tools in the bible that we should use. Thankfully I had a mentor who reminded me. More importantly than encouraging yourself, talk to God. Never believe that he is silent. He wants you to lean on him!. Don't ever think that God has given up on you. Remember, “God is not blind to our tears, never deaf to our cries and never silent to our pain”.
Here are some encouraging bible scriptures that have helped me in times of need;

“I am complete in Him who is the head of all principality and power.” -Colossians 2:10
“I have the mind of Christ” - 1 Corinthians 2:16
“I have the peace of God that passes all understanding.” -Philippians 4:7
“I have put off the old man and have put on the new man, which is renewed in the knowledge after the image who created me.” -Colossians 3:9-10
“I am Gods workmanship, created in Christ unto good works.” -Ephesians 2:10
“I am greatly loved by God.” -Romans 1:7, Ephesians 2:4, Colossians 3:12, 1 Thessalonians 1:4
“I am healed by the stripes of Jesus.” -Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2: 24
