OVERCOMING SPIRITUAL DEPRESSION otherwise known as Acedia, Burnout,or the Sloughof Despond

WE ALL KNOW THE SIGNS . . . Listlessness, irritability, that unloved, hangdog expression . . .

We talk to and pray with trusted friends, & check these things Prov. 9:1-12 Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn out her seven pillars: she has killed her beasts: she has mingled her wine; she has also furnished her table . . . LIFE BALANCE CHECKLIST Healthy, regular food  Sleep & rest  Medical check  Finances  Relationships  Support networks  Clothes  Household  Recreation 

THEN IN FAITH, WE PRAY . . . Psalm 23: The Lord is my Shepherd We shall not want  We rest in green pastures, beside still waters  God will restore our souls and comfort us  We go where Christ leads us, without fear  God’s anointing will help us, even in conflict  God’s goodness and mercy are always with us  We stop worrying & ask Jesus Christ to lead 

AS WE LISTEN TO JESUS, WE . . . Matt. 5:3-38: The Beatitudes count our blessings  rejoice in Jesus’ encouraging words  examine our actions and thoughts  find friends and life companions  sing to lift our hearts to God  seek whatever is good and beautiful  share our possessions and serve others 

AS WE LISTEN TO JESUS, WE . . . Matt. 5:3-38: The Beatitudes gather and share worship, experiences, song  realize that God loves us just as we are  identify our mistakes, and name them  work to discard harmful habits and attitudes  forgive ourselves, since God forgives us  learn to love ourselves as God loves us  learn to love others, even enemies 

THEN WE PUT ON GOD’S ARMOUR . . . Ephesians 6:10-18 As Christ’s disciples, we must  be belted with truth  be armed with righteousness  be shod with the Gospel of peace  be shielded with faith  wield the sword of the Holy Spirit  wear the helmet of salvation  pray at all times

AND WE REJOICE THAT GOD LOVES US  1 Jn. 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. In God’s faithful love for us (hesed) we are affirmed as God’s creatures  encouraged for service  rewarded by redemption  strengthened in Christ’s Body  and blessed through Christ’s Eucharist 

GOD RENEWS US THROUGH GRACE TO DO CHRIST’S WORK Acts. 1:8 But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come on you: and you shall be witnesses to me both in Judaea, and Samaria, and to the uttermost part of the earth.
