This Weeks Message 01/14/20
We think the winter blues are completely normal. Winter brings colder weather, less daylight, and a long stretch in which the only holidays (Groundhog Day, President’s Day, etc.) aren’t usually cause for the same kind of celebration as the ones that passed in December. So how do we move past this? How do we effect real change in our attitudes and our spirits?
Ask God for help. Turning to God first is always the best approach. It’s okay to pray for ourselves. Just like we’re supposed to fix our own oxygen masks in an airplane emergency before we help the person beside us, we cannot ignore our own needs now. Every morning, ask God to revive your spirit and soften your heart.
Feed your mind. Read the Bible, start a new Bible study, slowly read through an inspirational book (fiction or nonfiction), listen to praise music, write in your gratitude journal, or learn about something new.
Do something for someone else. There is a time for recharging, for nursing our wounds and making ourselves stronger. But there is nothing that surpasses the feeling of helping another person. Maybe that’s in the form of a financial gift (even a small one), but more likely you’ll be rejuvenated by giving of yourself. Stop by to see that relative in the nursing home. Visit the friend from church who’s recovering from surgery. Take a meal to an overwhelmed mom. When you let someone know they are not alone, you, too, get the pleasure of someone’s company.
