OVERCOMING

SPIRITUAL DEPRESSION
otherwise known as Acedia,

Burnout, or the

Slough of 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 Gods anointing will help us, even in conflict Gods 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 GODS ARMOUR . . .


Ephesians 6:10-18

As Christs 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 Gods faithful love for us (hesed) we are

affirmed as Gods creatures encouraged for service rewarded by redemption strengthened in Christs Body and blessed through Christs Eucharist

GOD RENEWS US THROUGH GRACE TO DO CHRISTS 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

CHRIST
