STOP! Don’t dial 1-800-feel bad,or start a pity party,start rejoicing.Rejoicing is a good antidote for stress,depression,cares,and the worries of this world,put some music on,then start singing ,and dancing, it is safe and effective.Now ,it all depends on the kind of music you listen to,you see I am a gospel,or christian music person,I realize that when I glorify God,the praises go up ,and the blessing come down.Listen, to me folks you can’t listen to music ,that will make you feel worse,why would you want to listen to music ,that will let you think about the person who broke your heart or put you in a state of funk,and depression. That’s why you have to listen to some spiritual music, to uplift your soul,that is totally unrelated to your hurt,pain,and ache.
When ,I think of the love God has for me,and the goodness of Jesus Christ,who died for me,that automatically replaces,everyone and everything that hurt me.That’s when I start to rejoice ,sing, dance ,and shout for joy.Sometimes, you have to encourage yourself in the Lord,that’s what King David did( 1 Samuel 30:6),when there is no one around,or you have people who just have nothing good to say,and just make you feel worse,then you have to step up to the plate ,and encourage yourself in the Lord.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance,but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken (Proverbs 15:13);Many are the afflictions of the righteous,but the Lord delivered him out of them all ( Psalms 34:19);Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound;they shall walk, O Lord,in the light of thy countenance.In thy name shall they rejoice all the day,and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted ( Psalms 89:15-16).
The apostle paul tells us to,”Rejoice in the Lord always:and again I say, rejoice!”.. then he said,”Be anxious for nothing,but in everything by prayer,and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God;and the peace of God,which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts,and minds through Christ Jesus,….hold up don’t go anywhere it gets better,he said, Finally,brethren,whatsoever things are true, honest,just,pure,lovely,and of good report;if there be any virtue,or praise think on those things” (Philippians 4:4-8),now don’t you feel you feel a whole lot better,instead of calling 1-800-feel-bad, having a pity party,or crying a river to swim away,don’t allow the devil to laugh,do a reality check,you are a child of the most High God,Jesus gave us the victory,and the authority to tread on serpents,scorpions,and all the power of the enemy;and nothing shall by any means hurt you (luke 10:19-20) it’s time to rejoice that our names are written in Heaven.Let the heart of them rejoice who seek the Lord( 1 Chronicle 16:10).
