Kind of depressed

Friday, August 06, 2010

I'm having an unmotivated sort of day. It started out okay; I got up earlier than I expected and had some quiet time/study time, then exercised for half an hour. I got a couple things done, then took my 17 year old son with me to get my new glasses and have him pick out some frames for prescription sunglasses for himself. Right now, though, he is under a lot of stress for various things, and he was undecisive. I was as supportive as I could be, but all I'm feeling right now is the residuals from his depressed mood. I know that I shouldn't let his feelings (or anyone else's) pull me down, and usually they don't. But his current situation is kind of overwhelming for me, and I just don't know what to do. I have prayed, but the answer hasn't come yet.

    Just keep on praying for him, over him, and with him you will get your breakthrough.

    Claire: I think all good Moms are wired that way. When our kids our hurting etc.. then we can match them in emotions. It is hard to separate those feelings to me, especially when they are teenagers.
    I pray your day will be full of blessings and a renewing of your spirit.

    Praying that things will work out soon for your son and for you! We hurt when our kids hurt-God certainly understands that :)

    That's hard. We do pick up feelings from those around us. I'm sorry your son is going through a difficult time.

    This morning I listened to Alistair Begg's message on A Biblical Approach to Anxiety. It may help you to listen to it to - go to www.truthforlife.org and look in Broadcasts. The message is in 2 parts - make sure to listen to both because the second part gets really practical.
