What do you do when you are down?

What do you do when you are down?

Many years ago, I started having "panic attacks". I did not know that is what they were at the time.... I would just get so worried and I would start panicing..... That word describes it so well....
A lot of the time, it was because I was dwelling on some problem and I would just keep thinking and worrying about it.... and then my insides would reak havoc....

How did I combat this with God's help??? I started listening more to Christian music.... especially during these times. I listen to music a lot - I LOVE music. I love singing - I love playing music on piano, violin etc.... (I rarely have the time right now for the latter).... But with a large family, I had gotten away from music a bit.... I was reminded to focus on things of God....

So everytime, I started feeling down, I would turn on my music (or I would ask one of the kids). It does not matter how big a problem it is, or how sad - it does not take long and I am reminded of what a great and powerful God we have....

So this morning - I turned on my music - I needed to refocus.... we have a busy day ahead of us, and I was thinking about this blog post. Here was the 1st song I heard on my Christ Tomlin - "Hello" CD....


Sing, sing, sing
And make music with the heavens
We will sing, sing, sing
Grateful that You hear us
When we shout your praise
Lift high the name of Jesus

What's not to love about You?
Heaven and earth adore You
Kings and kingdoms bow down
Son of God, You are the One
You are the one

You are the love that frees us
You are the light that leads us
Like a fire burning
Son of God, You are the one
You are the one we're living for

Sing, sing, sing
And make music with the heavens
We will sing, sing, sing
Grateful that You hear us
When we shout your praise
Lift high the name of Jesus

What's not to love about You?
Heaven and earth adore You
Kings and kingdoms bow down
Son of God, You are the One
You are the one we're living for

Sing, sing, sing
And make music with the heavens
We will sing, sing, sing
Grateful that You hear us
When we shout your praise
Lift high the name of Jesus


I love the line about God listening to our prayers! So since this week is about prayer - I thought I would share the song with you....


Yes - in times when I am down - I seek out God - because I know HE is the only One who can help me with my problems. He is the only One who will never fail me!!! He is the only One who will love me unconditionally. He is the only One who has power over everything that I may face. He is the only one who could send His one and only Son - to die on the cross - to permanently pay for the penalty of sin - "death" - eternal separation from God.

I PRAISE GOD

What's not to love about You?
Heaven and earth adore You
Kings and kingdoms bow down
Son of God, You are the One
You are the one we're living for


Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:1-2)
