Today we are going to talk a lil, before we go into the songs. Bear with me, i promise i won't preach, i couldn't even if i wanted to. My sister at 16 is the preacher in my family, she did just that and danced on Sunday at her church. She got a standing ovation. lol, so proud of her. Anyhoo
P.s i am not clinically depressed, i have a degree in psychology, i know what the difference between the different kinds of psychological mood disorders are. But i do feel like you should acknowledge your mood always. Depression is like any other disease, it can kill. So please Nigerians are fond of taking this issue lightly, please deal with it accordingly. If talking to a friend or loved one and music doesn't help you, consider therapy. People will argue that we don't have that in Nigeria, if thats the case, get on the internet or the phone, and to talk to therapists or psychologists around the world, write about it, do something about it, please.
Get Up - Mary Mary
I thought of you Fabu-lo-la, when i heard this song this morning because of your last post. I can definitely relate to parts of this song as i've been worrying about lack of self motivation and what the future has for me, and i've been feeling stagnant. Mary Mary - looked "FIERCE" in this vid, lol.
Can't give up now - Mary Mary
This is my "i remember where i'm from, remember where i'm going to with God on my side" song. Don't you just feel the tears sting a lil bit?
Smokie Norful - I need you Now
This is my "call on Jesus, please get me out this funk, this mood and lift me up"song. Listen very well to the words in this song, it speaks volumes.
Donnie McClurkin and Marvin Winans - STAND
I just asked you this question what do you do to pull through? "after you've done all you can, you just STAND" - if you don't finish any song, finish this song, please
I usually just do 3-4 songs, but just had to put up this song. i'm sure these songs are familiar to you and this is the most cliche of them all, but these songs work wonders for me
Donnie McClurkin - We Fall Down
This is my "there is nothing to big for God, cos i was born a sinner & he died for me song"
I pray for those of us who deal with mood disorders in anyway shape or form, the Lord will heal us.
I didn't preach much did i? :)
P.P. S I Love you
