Winter Blues

December 21, 2015

Many people have a hard time adjusting emotionally to wintertime. The nights are longer, sunshine can be limited, and the weather hinders outside activity.

I’ve watched friends and family struggle with the lack of joy that can come until it becomes debilitating. These things can add up to a sad heart, leading to less productive and enjoyable work.

In Psalm 42 the psalmist sounds as if he was experiencing the winter blues. He finished the psalm by writing. “Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”

If you’re struggling with the winter blues, eat healthy, exercise, find a friend, and put your hope in God. Remember springtime is coming!
