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.
AND SO WE ARISE INTO SPIRITUAL HARMONY C IN HRIST otherwise known as Holy Communion
