Worry

Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.

Proverbs 12:25 NLT

Courage

Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9 ESV

Depression

Being born with a birth defect I faced the overwhelming feeling of depression at an early age.

I began to look at both sides of my family and I soon realized that I was the only one who was born with a cleft lip and palate.

So the big question popped up in my head, why me?

I took this question to my Great-Grandma, Annie Mae Hardy and she told me that God don’t make mistakes and that I have purpose.

I’m alive today because my family spoke life into me, not despair.

So when I get depressed, I quickly speak life into myself, I think about my journey thus far, I think about my journey moving forward and all life has the offer.

Forgiveness

You must make allowance for each other’s faults and forgive the person who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

Colossians 3:13 NLT

Marriage

He who find a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord.

Proverbs 18:22 NKJV

Blessings

Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate when people say unkind things about you.

Instead, pay them back with a blessing.

That’s is what God wants you to do, and he will bless you for it.

1 Peter 3:9 NLT

Confidence

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:4 NKJV
