Anxiety & Depression
Do Not Be Overly!!!
Solomon writes in his Book of Proverbs 13 & 25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression but
a good word makes it glad. So, as we reach for that bottle of antidepressants, let us also receive a good
word from Solomon's wisdom. Eccl 7-16-19 Do not be overly righteous nor be overly wise. Why should
you destroy yourself? Do not be overly wicked nor be foolish. Why should you die before your time? It is good that you grasp this and also that you not remove your hand from the other: For he who fears God will escape them all. Wisdom strengthens the wise man more than ten rulers of the city. (Key) Do Not Be Overly!!! Here is my testimony of wisdom on this. I have found that the old devil always wants to get you in a little higher gear than you want to run in so you will lose control and end up in the ditch of anxiety & depression. Each day we must resist his prompting to appease that leaves us exhausted
& depressed. Let - slow and steady, do not be overly, all things in moderation - be the rule of your day. Do Not Be Overly will be the good word for today that will make our hearts glad.
(prayer) Lord I would clasp Thy hand in mine, nor never murmur nor repine, content whatever lot I see, since tis Thy hand that leadeth me. Thanks Lord amen & amen
