A Sacrifice of Praise

I’ve been feeling very depressed over the past week or so. I can’t seem to pinpoint exactly what is the cause – I just know that I want to sleep all of the time, that I don’t feel like doing any kind of activities (including writing), and that I’m having a difficult time being grateful.

But does the fact that I’m feeling the way that I do mean that I don’t need to be grateful? I don’t think so.

What I need to do is offer a sacrifice of praise to my Father God (Hebrews 13:15). In this time of difficulty – even more so than when things are going well – it’s important that I focus on the many things that I have to be thankful for. Am I struggling to see the good things? Yes. But I have to believe that God will help me to change my perspective.

What is it that you’re going through that is making it difficult to offer a sacrifice of praise? And will you choose to give praise in the midst of the struggle?

  1. It’s good to know that you are aware of what is going on inside of you, and that you’re actively seeking way to fight that negative feeling. I feel that such will and strength come from our Lord. He’s always beside you. Sending you my prayers. Take care!

    1. Thank you very much! I checked out your blog, and it looks like we have several things in common (Christianity and struggles with mental health). I look forward to reading your posts! 🙂
