I have just recently been through another few weeks of depression / anxiety. Haven’t had one of these for a while, so it was a bit unnerving.
But my gracious Father gave me the strength to do something that I had not been able to do before when I was like this. I was able to praise! On the really difficult days this was incredibly hard, but I found that I was able to bounce back more quickly. Sometimes I would even get a little bubble of joy while still anxious. Like the eye of the storm.
Did I praise Him for the depression? Absolutely not! But more on that in the next post. 🙂
Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my countenance, and my God. Psalm 42:11 AMP
