Full Measure Of Joy

Joy is the life inheritance of every Christian. Joy is an eternal fountain flowing from the throne of God that never runs dry. Joy is available as a life-source to all who believe and follow Jesus. Even as I write these words, I know that some of you that are listening to this podcast are not presently experiencing the joy that you know you are destined for. Why is it that so many women experience depression, discouragement and despair?According to the National Institute of Mental Health,

  • One in four women will experience severe depression at some point in life.
  • Depression affects twice as many women as men, regardless of racial and ethnic background or income.
  • Depression is the number one cause of disability in women.
  • In general, married women experience depression more than single women do, and depression is common among young mothers who stay at home full-time with small children.
  • Only about one-fifth of all women who suffer from depression seek treatment.

God wants to break into these statistics of women’s experience with the power of His love and the fruit of His joy.  Today, believe Him to deliver you from any pit of despair and to fill you with a full measure of His joy.

      I’m so sorry for the pain you are in. Have you sought out help from your doctor our counselor? When it gets to the point that you are so depressed you can’t get out of bed, you may need to talk with some one.

      On the other hand, if it’s because you genuinely need more sleep, have you tried packing your bag and taking it to work with you — then going directly to the gym after work? That sometimes helps me.
