Sherrie, I am so glad that you are feeling better! Thank you Lord! Congrats on the weight loss this week too. Negative thinking can certainly bring on or exacerbate depression, there is no doubt about it. My friend Angie, calls it "stinkin' thinkin'" I am glad that you recognized it and that you are turning your cares over to the Lord. Keep us posted on how you are doing, so we can continue to encourage you.

I have lost 3lbs this week and I thank the Lord. All glory and praise to the FATHER in heaven.
My spirit is up today. Thanks to you wonderful people and your kind words.
I think my depression was caused by neg. thinking. Thinking that I cant have what I want when I want it and just having to change my life style of eating and exercising. I also was just newly diagnosed a diabetic .
I thank you for the prayers and hugs ,I sure needed them. Sherrie

Sherrie,

Sometimes we don't know why we feel down and low. it's ok. it doesn't make us a bad person or anything at all.

Just know that we are here when you are up or down and that we love you no matter what. But if you need to talk, spark mail me.

Love you!

Sherrie, I am sorry you are down in the dumps right now. It is a very lonely feeling. I know because I have a chemical imbalance like Pam was talking about in her prayer for you. You are also in my prayer that God will show you the way out of your depression. You are loved, dear sister and friend in Christ. emoticon

Hi Sherrie! I understand how you are feeling, because Lord knows I have been there many times. Are you being treated for depression? Do you have clinical depression, or is there something going on in your life that you are depressed over? I personally think clinical depression is harder to deal wih because there is nothing on the outside that is causing the depression and you can look at everything around you, and be very thankful for all of God's blessings, but still not feel joy in your emotions. I will be praying for you Sherrie, and if you want to talk, feel free to sparkmail me any time.

Lord, I thank you for the privilege to come before you, our awesome God, with confidence and boldness, knowing that you care for us and listen to our petitions, and want the best for us. So, with that in mind, I bring your attention to Sherrie, my sister in Christ, who is struggling with depression. Lord, I do not know the source of the deptession, but I do know how debilitating depression can be. Lord, I would appreciate it if you would lift that depression from Sherrie; if it is a chemical imbalance causing it, Lord I ask that you would balance out her brain chemistry in line with the perfect creation that you made. If it is a situational depression, Lord, please work in her life to fix the problems and use them to bring her closer to you. Lord, whatever is the source, I ask that you please speak peace and joy to her spirit and emotions, and help her to feel your presence and loving arms around her today. I thank you in advance for the work you are doing in Sherrie's life and in her family and those dear to her. All of these things, I ask in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen!

My God Shall Supply All My Needs!

Hi Ronald,

Prayers going up for you.

Psalms 42:5 (THE MESSAGE)

Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues? I fix my eyes on God and soon I'll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He's my god.

What a wonderous Lord we serve. Remember He first loved you. He is our strength and protector. He is our provider and giver of life. Rely on Him and He will see you through this dark time.

`.(`.) Hugs
(`.). & Prayers
