Nehemiah 8:10 (NKJV) Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.“
The Lord just reminded me of a testimony of mine from 2012. I want to share it to help or encourage others who might go through the same thing.
Before 2012 I had been on antidepressants for a couple of years. But in 2012 when my husband left and God told me to stand for my marriage, He also told me to get off those meds. I knew He wanted me off the antidepressants, because He kept telling me I didn’t need them. I didn’t argue with God, but I told Him fearfully that of all the times in my life to get off antidepressants this was THE WORST time to do so…my husband had just left me! But I told Him that since He was telling me to do so, I’d do it.
I’ve never taken another antidepressant since then. He became my antidepressant 🙂 His joy really became my strength that day and everyday after…
