How to Get Out of the Pits


Are you in the pits of depression? Michael Hasha offers biblically based suggestions to help you find joy again.

Let’s think about some of the many benefits of praising God. Look at these verses:

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever (Psalm 30:11-12).

Are you in the pits of depression? Are you in desperate need of some encouragement? Here’s how you get out of depression’s grip: Gives praise and thanks to God, and He will turn your depression into dancing.

Take a look at this passage:

Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth. Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing (Psalm 100:1-2).

We can look for other ways to find joy and gladness. The flesh promises joy, but never delivers what it promises. Pure joy and gladness is found in our praise of the Father.

Today, let’s do what these passages suggest we do. Let’s come before the Father and shout, serve, sing, and dance.
