Push Past Your Fears

To not take counsel from our fears means that faith in the Lord Jesus Christ overrules our fears and that we can press forward with a steadfastness in Him. To not take counsel from our fears means that we trust in God's guidance, assurance, and timing in our lives."
—David A. Bednar, "Christ Overrules Our Fears"
Topics: FearFaith

This is very applicable to my life right now.
My hubbie  & I have decided to 
take a huge leap of faith
with regards to how 
he provides for our family.
Surprisingly, I have been 
very much at peace, 
which is huge for me. 
Normally, change is a trigger 
for my depression. 
I feel that my hubbie & I are 
pushing past any fears
& we're definitely NOT 
taking any "counsel" from them...
also known as 
letting your fears stop you 
from obtaining your dreams .

Before reading my previous post I had typed most of this one. Standing in Holy Places in definitely something I need.

"Discipleship is the pursuit of holiness and happiness. It is the path to our best and happiest self."
When I am depressed                                                                                                                                    & need help pulling myself out of the                                                                                                           slump I get into,
I try to surround myself                                                                                                                   with things that are                                                                                                                                    
Some things that I do or have done in the past are:
~Go to the temple                                                                                                                                         (I'm always on a spiritual high after I go).
~Listen to the scriptures                                                                                                                               (It's easier to listen when I'm depressed,                                                                                         because I'm usually distracted & I have a hard time concentrating).                                                        The Bible    The Book of Mormon   Doctrine & Covenants    Pearl of Great Price
~Listen to the Mormon Channel                                                                                                            (I love this! It's a clean & uplifting alternative to TV or movies).                                                   Here's the link: Mormon Channel
~Play uplifting music                                                                                                                             (Music is such a healing balm to our spirits).
(My stake president (ecclesiastical leader) 
promised me 
relief from depression 
as I seek to serve 
those in my church 
& others around me).

invites the Holy Ghost into my home...thereby my own home becomes a
