Hi there and good morning 🙂
Here I am again on “depression.” We know the motto; “God helps those who help themselves”
Many people think that this quotation comes from the Bible…it is not found there.
According to “Wikipedia” and taken from there…
It has been commonly attributed to Benjamin Franklin, the modern English wording appears earlier in Algernon Sidney’s work
Going back to the scriptures I found these…
And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed
Why art thou cast down , O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart
Physical things you can do for depression AND that have helped me in the past
Keeping busy, and I do plenty of that with all my online work
Exercise, I’ve been a little slack on this for a couple of days. Need to get back to it…it helps!!
Natural Remedies, It has become common that natural herbs and supplements can alleviate depression…and I have found this to be true. Do a search on Google for “natural remedies for depression” and you will get a ton of results. =)
I have looked up scriptures for “judging others”
According to my faith and upbringing, judging others is definitely a sin. It’s real easy to point fingers and “even I” have done so. Everyone has done this sometime in their lives. We are all born into a sinful world.
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began
Isaiah Chapter 11 Verses 3 and 4
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
1 Corinthians 2:15 Verses 15 and 16
But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
James 1:19-22 Verses 19 through 22
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, letevery man beswift to hear , slow to speak , slow to wrath:
For the wrath of man workethnot the righteousness of God.
Wherefore lay apartall filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receivewith meekness the engrafted word, which is able to saveyour souls.
But be yedoers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
1 John 3:17
But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
Hope you all have a great week! =)
