The First Step When Dealing With Loneliness, Sadness, and Depression

At some point in our lives we all have to deal with loneliness, sadness, and possibly depression. It is tempting to indulge in things that ultimately can do harm to ourselves and our bodies. But we can defeat depression both in the spirit realm and the physical (natural) realm.

Personally as I grow in my faith walk, I find the quickest and most fulfilling way for me to get out of a state of loneliness or sadness is to simply praise and thank God in the middle of my storm.

Praising God doesn’t have to be formal or pretty. It can involve shouting to God or crying out to Him. You do what you have to do to fight through the negative and toxic emotions while leaning on God. But you fight through it while giving God praise for who He is and for Him being there to see you through the battle.

Does God need our praise? No. But I can tell you it most certainly gets His attention when you can thank Him and love on Him even though you are struggling with something like loneliness or a broken heart.

You can praise God anywhere and anytime and He will hear you. Hallelujah! Praise Him on the way to work. Praise Him in the shower. Praise Him anywhere when you are in your darkest hour. All you simply have to do is praise Him and He’ll see you through. I’m a witness.

You will find after minutes of genuine praise of Father God, you will feel better. And the more you repeat your praise in the days or even weeks to come, the loneliness, sadness, and depression will be forced to move off of you. Hallelujah!

Now, while you improve upon being consistent with praising God and taking care of your spirit, it’s also important to take care of our physical selves as well.

I’m learning different herbs, spices, and supplements can help us improve and maintain our physical bodies and mental state. One such blessing is turmeric curcumin. Studies have found it can act as an antidepressant. 

But don’t take my word for it visit this site ( to get proof of how turmeric curcumin can help fight depression among other things. They also provide links to studies to back up the many benefits they list of turmeric curcumin.

The victory is yours as a believer in Father God and Jesus Christ! Amen to that!

Now, here are some songs to help you praise God:
