what scriptures do you use to help? How do you pull yourself up? Have you ever gotten depressed because of the garbage dumped on your life? Does the book of Job help you?

I could write a book about the issues we have dealt with in the past 4 years. I have been to the point of walking out on my faith, it has been that bad. Several things help, first is going back through my life and looking at the times God has taken care of me. I keep a journal and have since I was young, with 30 years of walking with God there have been many, many times that I have seen His hand move and care for me.Â Second, honest prayer.Â By honest prayer I mean telling God my true feelings.Â So many Christians try to hid their fear, anger, frustration from God.Â We think He will somehow be impressed by our faith.Â But God already knows how we feel, and He hasn't stopped loving us yet.Â So just be honest with Him.Â Remember He was tempted and tried much like we are, so He really understands.Â Cont.....

con't and finally Scripture, I love the Psalms. My "life verse" is Jeremiah 29:11-13
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." (NIV)
Finally Christian music has a deep effect on my heart. Anything that reminds me who God is and how much He loves me.
the book of Job doesn't really do it for me.
Hope all this helps,
