Lockdown Mental Health Support – Psalm 37

Last night, I did another Lockdown Mental Health Support livestream. This time the Bible passage was Psalm 37. I chose this Psalm because it speaks into feeling powerless and at the mercy of forces beyond our control. Some people get fearful, or some people get angry – I can sympathise with both of those responses. But the best thing to do is trust God and accept that he is in control of things we can’t control.

I found these verses particularly helpful:

Stop being angry!
   Turn from your rage!
Do not lose your temper—
   it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed,
   but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.

I am aiming to do a session each Friday night during lockdown. I find that it’s helpful for my own mental health, let alone anyone else’s!

Last week’s one was on Psalm 29. They will all be available on the playlist.

Lockdown Mental Health Support – Psalm 29

I have just done another YouTube livestream on lockdown mental health. I’ve been a bit up and down this week to be honest, and my family have too. Many people I’ve spoken to have said they’re really struggling at the moment. It’s funny looking back at the videos I did at the start of the first lockdown – I don’t think I really knew what struggling was at that point!

Anyway, I’m planning to do a session each Friday evening during the lockdown. We’ll spend a few minutes reading the Bible and then pray. I find it hugely helpful to do this and I hope you do too.

Last week’s one on Psalm 23 is still available to catch up with.

Lockdown Mental Health Support – Psalm 23

Last night, I did a livestream on YouTube on Psalm 23. The subject was particularly about lockdown mental health support – I felt like I needed to turn to the Bible to help me! I’ve found this one of the hardest weeks of my life, I’m sure other people have felt that too.

If you’d like to watch it again or catch up, you can do so here:

I’m hoping to do another one next week. If you have any prayer requests or any particular issues you’d like me to look at, please comment below.

I did a video a couple of years ago about mental health from a Christian perspective – check it out here.
