I am always trolling the bible
looking for mind-verses …
One thing I’ve learned is there’s no therapy like God’s book. It is the book of life because it’s a double-edge sword against thoughts of death. It is a book that buries itself like treasure in your belly when you read it, NEVER to return void. It is the book that, when stored in your heart and uttered aloud, will make the enemy flee. It is a very powerful mental-health remedy, and it’s free and accessible to all of us.
That being said I was thrilled when I came across this one. Isaiah 61:3 says God can give, “the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.” To me, this says WITH God, we can exchange heaviness for priase. How? By praising Him. It sounds intellectual and theological, but I’m neither, and I’ve learned to.

On my jog this morning, I passed a lady praising God while walking with her headphones on. Praising God is sometimes in song, sometimes at church, sometimes still, sometimes active, sometimes in writing, sometimes in a prayer. It’s giving God props in a reverent way. If you are in a spirit of heaviness, try starting your day with praising God, exchanging that heaviness for praise. There’s nothing to lose…and a garment to gain.
