Quote to Ponder:

"Depression doesn't define who I am. It's a part of my story, as a lot of broken parts are, but Jesus is the one who gives me my identity and tells me who I am and that's where we need to look to him and hear his voice in all the parts of our story" Heather Khym

Scripture for Lectio Divina - Lamentations 3:21-24 

"But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul “therefore I will hope in him.”
