Whichever the case, the black dog of depression has been around for generations now. And this old dog is up to the same old tricks. The black dog will train you, if you let it. But it’s better if you train the black dog.     This video is really well-done, so I can’t help but mention that the artist and author also has a book:Living with a Black Dog: His Name Is Depression by Matthew Johnstone.     Of course, faith in God helps us work through depression.

Are we going to choose to let the problems weigh us down? Or are we going to choose to trade our problems for the joy of the Lord. That’s the message of this song, “I’m Trading My Sorrows.” Part of the following video is done in English, but most of it is in their native tongue. Still, the joy of the Lord is evident in these Christians from Zimbabwe. In fact, it’s contagious. I encourage you to take five minutes to let their joy rub off on you. And remember, you have a choice to cling to your problems or trade them for the joy of the Lord.   I’m Trading My Sorrows – Zimbabwe Style   If life has you bogged down, maybe you need to get Unstuck!    ...
