“We can feel isolated – that’s real, but we can’t stay there. We have the entire trinity on our side, the Father loving us fiercely and making a good plan, the Holy Spirit interceding on our behalf, our coheir Christ interceding and making a way for us. Don’t believe the lie that it’s all on your shoulders, and it’s all up to you and you have no clue where to go or what to do. He is a very big God, and what’s better – He is incredibly near.” –Jess Connolly, A Naptime Diary
This is an edited, republished episode from April 2015.
In this episode Jess openly shares about her bouts with depression. She offers three “helps” for the gal struggling to have hope. I nodded with agreement at everything she says.
Especially the clinging to intimacy with God part. The praying out loud, walking around your house reading Scripture part.
Cuz motherhood is no joke. There is an invisible battle raging all around us. We aren’t alone. Like Jess said we have the entire trinity on our side.
