Overcoming Depression

Choicing LIght

“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy:

when I fall, I shall arise;

when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.”

MIcah 7:8

I am memorizing this scripture. When I feel the negative voices closing in on me, telling me that I am not good enough, pretty enough, have the wrong body size, or I am not a very good mom or wife, etc, I do have a choice! I choose light! When I fall, I will arise and I won’t sit around and dwell on negative things, I will live my life and I will choose happiness. I will choose light. I will reach out to the One who has felt all pain, all sadness, all disappointments and failures, and let him be my strength.
