Remedy for a Heavy Heart February 12
Food for Thought: Prov. 12:25
Let’s face it. There are days when you don’t feel happy. Days when you are dealing with such difficult circumstances that you may wonder if you’ll ever feel happy again. But don’t give up on God, and whatever you do, don’t blame Him. He has the remedy for a heavy heart.
First, go to Him. As you spend time with Him, recognize that Jesus desires to relieve you of that weight. Give it to Him by faith, and you will find rest for your soul.
Second, as you spend time with Him, worship Him, regardless of what has happened. When you worship Him, called in one translation of the Psalm “my happiness and joy,” He performs a healing miracle in your heart and brings joy.
And third, remember that a “good word” brings joy. Expose your heart to good words only. Especially when you are battling depression or a serious concern, don’t turn on the news, pick up the newspaper, or watch shows that provoke feelings of sadness or anything negative. If possible, stay away from people who have nothing positive to say. Instead, converse with people who have a good word for you. And pour the Word of God into your heart every chance you get. This remedy is guaranteed to work!
