Feeling Downcast?


SadFace02“We have all been depressed at one point or another in our lives. Sometimes the reason or reasons are pretty obvious: an experience of grief or loss, stressful work environment…. Other time… we just feel the stress.”

Check out my second guest blog article on Paul and stress:

Comforted and Caring

(It might seem a little odd that I have 2 series going on, one on Ephesians and currently on being strengthened, but another on stress and currently on feeling downcast. The guest series on Paul and Stress has been arranged since October last year and I am following the schedule given by the host.)

“For when we came into Macedonia, this body of ours had no rest, but we were harassed at every turn–conflicts on the outside, fears within.  But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus,  and not only by his coming but also by the comfort you had given him. He told us about your longing for me, your deep sorrow, your ardent concern for me, so that my joy was greater than ever.” (2 Corinthians 7:5-7)
