Fervent, loving intercession
Slowly, God helped me regain my sense of joy and optimism as I relearned how to be grateful and find new ways to express my love for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I had to learn to act on my faith rather than on my feelings. He spoke His Word powerfully into my life and taught me to speak and claim His promises: No weapon that is formed against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17). There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28). For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
