This month is Mental Health Awareness Month. As someone who’s suffered from Major Depression in the past and deals with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD or seasonal depression), I want to help bring awareness. So I’m excited to announce authors Jaime Jo Wright, Jennifer Q. Hunt, Bethany Cox, and RN Sherry Grant will be guest blogging on different Mondays this month with a message of hope. ❤️ There will also be giveaways!
One thing that helps me during a tough season is worship music. It soothes me, and it elevates my spirit, just like when King Saul’s troubled spirit fled with David’s harp. I know it’s easier to praise God when things are going well, but during dark days? I smile when well-meaning people suggest exercise to push the gloom out when I lack the motivation to get out of bed. And you may smile when I mention worship. But this helps me. I may not sing along all the time, but pushing play can fill the environment with God’s peace. Whether I stay lying in bed or am driving, one album I listen to is Cece Winans’ cd, Believe For It.
God told me in my intervention experience, “There is strength when you worship me.” I’m finding out the truth in those words and want to bless someone this month with their own copy of Believe For It! Click on the link for your chance to win. Blessings!
