OK, I put this here, because although I would love scripture if you have it, it's not the only thing I'm asking for. Feel free to move it if you wish. I was recently wondering as I was driving to the store a few days ago, You see, I was genuinely happy that day, and I wanted to praise God for my happiness! To share some of this feeling with Him. So I tried to pray... but couldn't really think of any words, so I tried to think of a song to sing... and I thought of: "bring me to the cross", "Praise you in this storm", and "what if His people prayed". All very good up lifting songs! And I like them a lot! but.. they're more for when you're feeling down, and I wasn't! =/ So I started to think of scriptures to praise God when there's blue skies; when all is OK, and though you see the mess all around you, for some reason you're still feeling happy. ...and I still couldn't think of anything! I know probably over 100 passages that are great to read when you're feeling down, or depressed. But I don't know a single one for when you're happy!! I mean you've got God's love, His faithfulness, His patients, His righteousness, His justice...Etc! But; I mean I praise God for that everyday! and couldn't live without any of those!! But, what about those times when you're not struggling with sin (you don't sin every second of your life), and you feel like Satan has fled from you, and you feel like... like there's a light shining off of you. How do you praise God for THAT feeling? I'm looking for: hymens, songs, scriptures, anything that I can use to praise God when I'm happy (in the eye of the storm) All help/ comments are appreciated! GOD BLESS!!! ~Dan.
jackie.barra posted a topic in Testimonies and WitnessingI'm 16 years old. I go to a youth group where we do bible studies every week. I go to church every Sunday. I have a lot of friends who really care about me. I have a loving and supportive family. I believe that God is my heavenly father and he answers prayer. Yesterday I was diagnosed with depression. I had been suffering from depression for a few months but it was only just recently that it got much worse. Some of my symptoms are confusion, easily agitated, lack of interest in things that I normally love, feeling detached from my friends and family, crying a lot, trouble concentrating, looking for an escape, not motivation, I'm forgetful and I have trouble doing some of the most basic everyday activities. When I had all these things happening to me, I was scared; I didn’t know what was happening to me. I was blaming myself, I felt I was being selfish, acting in that way that worried everyone, and I was so terrified when I learnt I had no control over it. I didn’t know what was wrong with me, so when the doctor diagnosed me with depression, I felt a sense of relief, I know this will sound strange but I’ve been so happy since being diagnosed. I feel sense of hope, that now that my family and I know what is wrong with me, we can do something about it. When it first became obvious to my parents that I had depression, they started praying over me and telling me to let God heal me, When I didn’t get any better, they got angry at me saying I didn’t have enough faith. I hit rock bottom, just a few days ago I was at a point where even my parents wouldn’t listen to me or help me. I felt stupid for feeling depressed; I thought that it was something that I should be able to control myself and just stop. I also felt bad for my family; I could see that my depression was having a bad impact on them. My Dad stopped smiling and my Mum would cry when she thought I wasn’t listening. My little sister and brother were scared; they didn’t know what was happening to me. I didn’t know what was happening to me either. I was so confused. I’d wake up in the morning and not want to get out of bed, I couldn’t think of any reason to. I don’t have trouble getting out of bed anymore because now when I wake up I praise the Lord and ask him to bless my day. Although depression is a terrible thing, I feel that God may have a purpose for this. I know that I can overcome this with God's help and when I'm healed of this depression, I am going to have an amazing testimony. Just because I’ve been diagnosed with depression, doesn’t mean I have to act depressed, I'm going to be filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit, and be the happiest depressed person anyone has ever seen.
