FOCUS AND OVERCOME DISAPPOINTMENT AND DEPRESSION
Destiny’s Minister of Education and Culture, David Beaver, told students that there are four things a person needs to do to overcome disappointment: 1. Know God’s path for you by reading the Bible, 2. Grieve and get the disappointment out of your system by crying or calling Jesus, 3. Pray, and 4. Listen for God’s direction.
Minister Beaver told of the many disappointments in his life and revealed that until he found his path in the Bible and went through these four steps with complete confidence in God, his disappointments led to depression. He said when a person gets depressed, that person needs to go back to the root of that depression and he or she will find it is disappointment.
“God,” he said, “bring hope and joy to us.” He told of the low we went through was just prior to the joy we would feel when God’s direction was realized.”
