Freedom is a state of mind
We are overcomers through the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Rev 12:11). I have written my testimony of overcoming depression by focusing on what I think, do, and speak. It has been a long journey. I can finally say that I have the freedom!
While writing my book titled “Depression: State of Mind“, I had many ups and downs. It was a process. There were days that I did not want to even think about writing anything. There were many weeks that I didn’t have the strength or energy to focus on lifting myself up and adding to my book. In the Bible it says that David stirred himself up in the Lord. I think about that often. It’s really hard to do, especially at first. It’s worth it in the long run though.
The way you react to your circumstances will be a large part of your victory. Choose to have a ‘never give up, never surrender’ attitude in your life. Success should not be an option. This is the only life that you get, so be determined to make it count for something. God has a plan for your life so make sure you live up to your potential. Don’t waste it.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU…
You are what you believe.
You are what you think.
You are what you see.
You are what you speak.
You are what you hope.
You are what you do.
In my research, I have found that you are what you dwell on and focus on. If you keep thinking about your problems and your failures, then all you will have is problems and failures. That’s why the Bible tells us to think on things above instead of on ourselves. ~Colossians 3:1 (NIV) [Rules for Holy Living], “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.”~
Think of your blessings instead of your problems and you will be happier. It’s a battle. You are battling for your mind. You are battling for your peace. You are battling for your joy. You are battling for your life. Don’t let the devil steal your life from you. Take it back- by force! ~Matthew 11:12 (KJV), “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence , and the violent take it by force.”~
