Cold days are ahead and many of us will want to stay indoors to brave the cold. I am in CT, and the upcoming temperatures this weekend will be in the low teen digits, severely cold with wind chills 0 to 30!!
Be aware, that just as the temperatures are low, many are battling the same in their spirit internally. Depression & anxiety are heightened in the cold seasons and mental health issues are on the rise with so many trying to educate others in the importance of seeking help.
If you’re in a low or cold season, know that You ARE BRAVE, You ARE STRONG and You ARE NEVER ALONE.
If you see someone in a low or cold season, let them know that They ARE BRAVE, They ARE STRONG and They ARE NEVER ALONE.
Help and support are available. Text or call 988.
Never feel ashamed to reach out to that friend or coworker and ask for their support or help to help you connect with a resource to help you through your low season. We all have them.
And know there is one man, named Jesus, our Savior, who loves you unconditionally and is with you at your side in every moment. So call upon his name in the midnight hour. Seek him and cry out to him and he will show up in ways that will show you just how much you are truly loved. ❤️
If you know someone who is in a cold, or difficult season of their life, be there to support and listen to them. If you feel they may potentially self harm, connect them with someone or a resource who can help them. Suicide is on the rise amongst even those we deemed to be the strongest people.
The enemy is out to steal, kill and destroy. But we serve a God who has already defeated the darkness. Let’s do our parts to remind the broken and hurting the Lord says this:
- “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NLT
- “Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 NKJV
- “…I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” I Matthew 28:20 KJV
Growing with you.
