God's medication for 18 July 2007

Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous fall.
Psalm 55:22
Have been participating in a forum for mothers (http://www.moms4moms.info/sg/) and got to know some nice mothers. Through them, I learnt scrap booking, sewing and many more.
It is also there that I realised I am not alone facing the darkness of depression. I learnt to be stronger through their encouragements.
It is through the forum I got to know this lady who is facing difficulties in her daily live. She encouraged me when I was fighting my depressive mood. Now, it is my turn to help her. I had "talked" to her over the MSN messenger and realised that she is struggling.
Hence, I decided to start another topic "God's Medication". This will allow me to share with others what God had done for me. It is time for me to sow the seeds.
Many times, we tend to take things into our own hands. We want to achieve everything at the fastest time. We want to be the best in the neighbourhood. We want to be the ones praised by our bosses. However, these are the wants that will push us into the state of depression.
It boils down to not what we want but what God has planned for us. Hence, every time when we are struggling, take a deep breathe , close you eyes and pray. Tell Him your concerns, your needs, your fears and ask Him for guidance.
He may not answer directly but the answers will come. Be patient and be still then you will be able to hear His answers.
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous fall.
Psalm 55:22
