Hope for the post holiday blues!

'but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.'

God can feel the sadness and the depression everyone is feeling after the holidays.

You went from the most wonderful time of the year with so much excitement to a sudden crash.

Everything changed all of a sudden, now what do we do?

Gods solution for post-holiday blues is to have an attitude of gratitude. We all have things in our lives we can be thankful for. Some examples include having clean water to drink, having a home, a car, good health, having family, having a job, and even internet to read a blog. No matter which part of the world you are living in right now, there is something the God has blessed us with that we can be thankful for right now. Even the fact He has given us breath in our lungs to be able to see a new day. The ability to see and feel the sunshine (and for those living in areas with colder climates), can now enjoy seeing beautiful snowflakes.

Change of seasons is a gift from God and allows us to appreciate and enjoy each season we are in. God has taught me to cherish and enjoy each season while you are in it, instead of waiting for it to be over to go to the next one.

Every person has something they can be thankful for…If we stop and pay attention we can see how many things God has protected us from and even in a bad situation -things could of been worse and His Hand was there to help us. Sometimes we take for granted the things He is doing for us we forget to be grateful.

The Bible says a “ A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but a heartache crushes the spirit”

God is teaching me to survive the post holidays blues by having an attitude of gratitude.

Making a gratitude list in a journal or note section on your phone can help can go back and refer to it when you feel the blues. Keep thanking God throughout the day for things you may have taken for granted and you will be able to have your joy be restored.

If you have any prayer request please email me at

Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Let us pray together in agreement,

Heavenly Father,

We pray for those experiencing this overwhelming depression right now. We pray for those who may be experiencing uncertainties about this new year and anxieties about their future. Give them the peace that surpasses all understanding and guard their hearts in Christ Jesus. I pray for you to fill them with your joy, your hope and your peace. Give them the grace to have an attitude of gratitude in Jesus name. Amen

If anyone has not received Jesus as their Lord and Savior and wishes to do so, please say the prayer below:

Heavenly Father,

Please forgive me for my sins. I invite you Jesus into my heart as my Lord and Savior. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Help me to follow You. I ask this in Jesus name. Amen
