For your feelings of sadness or depression remember some of our great Bible heroes, and spiritual leaders had to deal with the dark, downside and heaviness of heart for one reason or another. Moses, Elijah, David and Job, just to name a few, questioned God as they suffered feelings of inadequacies, some tainted with guilt as they experienced consequences of bad choices! Take heart friends, God didn’t leave them alone but He came to them with compassion overload, to lift them out of their despair and mend their brokenness. He desired to use them in spite of weaknesses. And He did! His desire is to do the same for you! He’s the healer of broken hearts and the mender of broken spirits. He’s the lifter of heads and our shield of protection! Rely on Him and enter a new year with renewed hope!
“But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.”
Psalm 34:18, 19
“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.”
