In November 2020, I had COVID-19. I struggled with symptoms for like five weeks. That, coupled with political, family, and other uncertainties, I was an emotional mess. Are you there? Well, if you struggle with depression, don’t be embarrassed. Get help. If you don’t, and you’re trying to “get through it” on your own. KNOCK IT OFF. Our kids and grandkids are watching. As followers of Christ, we know God WILL take care of us. Be honest with our kids as they’re probably struggling, too. And then do the only thing that helped me stop those overwhelming feelings. Tell somebody, pray, and read the Word. Psalm 56, Isaiah 41:10, and Matthew 6. Training our kids will use over and over.
