Depression and stress come from thinking depressing and stressful thoughts.Here is an excellent verse that instructs us how to think properly:

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Dear Susan2001, I sometimes am brought to think of a song I learned long ago that always makes me smile.

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me! - -  ::smile::

And then scripture to let me know everything is alright according to His perfect plan for my life.  

Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

May God bless you today in your time of need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus - larry2

I personally like to go the opposite way.

2 Peter 3:10 says
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

Helps me get my priorities back in line when I'm getting anxious about any earthly problem. (I'm not assuming your rough day was with worldly things, but I gave you this just in case)

I would suggest repeating the following verse when things get tough   

Psalm 34:19 " Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all."

I don't know if this is a verse or if it is, then I don't know where, but always trust in God that He will make things right.  I have to deal with a lot of unChristian people at my part-time job (still in high school) and lately, they haven't been bothering me or God has had a new person come in their place for that day.  I thank Him for that and for all He has done for me.  Don't worry about it being a hard day at work next time you work.  God will make it good for you.

   There are 3 Psalms , they have always helped me on different occasions depending on the need.  They arePsalm23 for the sheer beauty of GOD'S promise.  Psalm 91 for protection in violent physical situations and Psalm139 for whenever you might have doubts of any kind at all.  I'm not going to type them out for they are right there in your bible.  GOD bless you and keep you.  Thank you JESUS AMEN.

Can not believe I never saw this post!

Be anxious for nothing...  Phil 4:6

Cast all your anxiety (cares) on Him..  1 Peter 5:7

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all - how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all thngs?  Rom 8:32

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.   Jer 33:3

Elaine - Can not believe I never saw this post!

larry2 - I doubt it matters. Since we have not heard from Susan again, that hard day must have done her in.   ::frown::  Next case scenario please .  ::smile::

I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all [is] vanity and vexation of spirit.  Ecc 1:14

"My Child...
You may not know me,
but I know everything about you…
I know when you sit down and when you rise up…
I am familiar with all your ways … Even the very hairs on your head are numbered…
For you were made in my image… In me you live and move and have your being… For you are my offspring… I knew you even before you were conceived... I chose you when I
planned creation…
 
You were not a mistake… For all your days are written in my book… I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live… You are fearfully
and wonderfully made…I knit you together in your mother's womb… And brought you
forth on the day you were born … I have been misrepresented by those who don't know me…
I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love… And it is my desire to lavish
my love on you...Simply because you are my child and I am your Father…I offer you more
than your earthly father ever could…For I am the perfect Father… Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand...
 
 For I am your provider and I meet all your needs…
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope… Because I love you with an everlasting love… My thoughts toward you are countless as the sand on the seashore… And I rejoice
over you with singing… I will never stop doing good to you… For you are my treasured
possession… I desire to establish you with all my heart and all my soul… And I want to
show you great and marvelous things…
 
If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me… Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart … For it is I who gave you
those desires… I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine… For I am
your greatest encourager.…I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles… When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you… As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have
carried you close to my heart… One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes…
And I'll take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth…
 
I am your Father and I love you
even as I love my son, Jesus… For in Jesus my love for you is revealed … He is the exact
representation of my being… And He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you.… And to tell you that I am not counting your sins… Jesus died so that you and I
could be reconciled… His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you…
I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love…If you receive the gift of my son Jesus,
you receive me…
 
And nothing will ever separate you from my love again…Come home and
I'll throw the biggest party heaven has ever seen… I have always been Father and will always be Father… My question is...Will you be my child?… I am waiting for you…...
Love, Your Dad"
