Day 7 of 31 days of depression.

Yes, it’s that simple. This one takes no explanation.

Go to church.

Worship at home.

In your car.

Your backyard.

Just do it.

Worship the one who has your life completely figured out and in His hands.

Worship the one who is going to get you through this.

Worship the one who welcomes you with open arms no matter what.


Do today:

  • Memorize this scripture: So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
  • Pray: Lord, please forgive me if I have forgotten to worship you during this storm. Help me fight my way out. I worship you, King of Kings. Thank you for all you have done and are doing for me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
  • Worship: Listen to music that make you focus on Christ and not on yourself. Go to youtube or Godtube and let the words fill you. Let’s not forget we serve an awesome God.

To purchase this song:Praise You In This Storm

The next 31 days we will be discussing depression and healthy ways to combat it but we’re going to get real too. Because for those of us who wind up in the pit often, we know platitudes and fluff pieces do nothing for us. My expertise is only based on my own very personal battles with depression and is no way, professional or medical advice.

  1. Yes! There is a time to “go through the motions”. I say that with sensitivity and caution. The time is when it is hard and our flesh resists. That might be the time we need to “just do it” and the Spirit Himself will intercede and minister to us in faithfulness, grace and truth , Magnifying Him and ministering to us. I have been in that pit clinging to a Bible, unable to open it with tears and heavy heart and He never left my side…sometimes that worship is all one can muster up. Our God accepts it. He is faithful!

  2. Such truth. Sometimes, we just need to do it and let the spirit roll over us.

  3. thanks for visiting my blog (Fear of the Lord) and your kind comment. I truly agree to praise God just for who he is, awesome, wonderful, magjestic, eternal, everlasting, no matter what we may be going through!


  4. Mel, I’m so glad you stopped by and left me your blog address. As a psychologist I so appreciate a first hand account of a depressive episode and how a Christian works along side the Lord to get back to health. I am anticipating all 31 blogs. Thanks for sharing such a personal but a much needed time in life. God bless, Bobbi

  5. Great advice! We can find joy in the Lord even in the midst of turbulent waters. He is the Great Physician who will bring peace to our hurting souls.

  6. I agree with you Betty! We have to continue to worship the Lord because He is who He is! We have to let out troubles go to him. Mary Crowley, who founded the company Home Interiors always said “Honey give our problems to God, He is going to be up all night anyway.” Thanks for your prayers and I am putting you on my list. We can all use the goodness of the Lord anytime and anywhere. Blessings to you today! Anne

  7. Just do it. Yes. I want worship to be my go-to mindset, part of who I am and what I do all the time. It does help me lift higher when my mood brings me low. A great post. Thank you!

  8. Hey Melinda! I think our 31 days series have lots in common b/c like you say here, it’s worship, finding His Heart, that leads us through the dark. Thanks for sharing this series…I’m sure there’s been so many blessings! and way to fight!!! and keep on keepin’ on!
