I’ve had a craptastic day so far. I kid you not, it is an extremely awful day. It’s the kind of day that makes me want to go home and curl up in bed. And perhaps cry, but I’m more angry than sad, and more upset with myself and my reaction to how things are going, and that upsets me more… it’s just an awful chain reaction of emotion that annoys me to no end.
My wife’s aunt passed away. I reacted wrongly to a suggestion this morning, and I regret it. I have to make a critical decision that I don’t want to make right now, but I have to, and soon, and it’s just all too much. To top it all off, I’m fat.
I’m listening to Avalon’s Still My God and Katie Giguere’s Anyway to help me get through this morning, as well as Ashmont Hill’s version of Blessed Be Your Name. I’m also reciting several Bible verses to myself, including the following:
I will bless Yahweh at all times. His praise will always be in my mouth. – Psalms 34:1
Praise Yahweh, my soul! All that is within me, praise his holy name! Praise Yahweh, my soul, and don’t forget all his benefits; who forgives all your sins; who heals all your diseases; who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies; who satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. – Psalms 103:1-5
Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praises. – James 5:13
I remember Job. The Lord gives, the Lord takes away. The Name of the Lord be praised. In all circumstances, the Lord remains faithful, and is deserving of praise.
Are you depressed and looking for a song for depression? I hope these help you.
