Sometimes during our separation I was just so down in the dumps that it seemed like nothing or no one could encourage me. It was sometimes like that day or night. I learned to put on my headphones and just listen to worship, especially worship that included a lot of scripture.
At times I didn’t have energy to read my Bible, but I would speak out loud The Lord’s Prayer or the 23rd Psalm or other short scriptures that I knew from memory. I can’t tell you how but eventually my spirit would be renewed and I would have hope and be able to think more clearly, read, and reach out to people.
Remember, Jesus promised us that He will never leave us or forsake us. He also told us to “put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness”.
