Cure for the Spirit of Heaviness




Sometimes life is overwhelming.

Sad.

Frustrating.

Scarey.

Lonely.

Sometimes these emotions grow up like monsters in the dark, overshadowing all that is good, and right, and true.  Sometimes God seems far away.  Sometimes we doubt His care for us.

His love.

His justice.

His kindness.

Scripture tells us to put on the "garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness."  It tells us, "In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God concerning you."

If life seems out of balance and the wave is crashing over you and you cannot seem to catch your breath, employ the power of thankfulness.



Join me as I commit, for the next seven days, to count seven blessings.  It's a baby step in taking God at His word.  "Prove Me this day," says the Lord.

Together let's see if the garment of praise IS the cure for the spirit of heaviness.

Click on the link below and follow the post all the way to the bottom to download and print your baby step toward praise -- the little booklet called "7 Gifts -- Good and Perfect" , a Weekly Gratitude Book from Ann Voskamp.  I have committed to make the listing of 7 gifts each day the first thing I do.  I have invited my family to walk with me down the avenue of praise and thankfulness this week.  Will you walk with us?

Let's meet back here in a week and prove God together.
