In today’s episode of Heart Lessons, you’ll hear from Sarah Ann Rogers. Sarah is a wife, mama, blogger, and now podcaster! Her podcast, Tell Her Story, launched last Thursday so definitely head over to itunes and check it out. In this episode, Sarah shares about her experience with Postpartum Depression and Anxiety. Sarah talks about the fact that, what really surprised her most is that she was even walking in darkness at all. She shares how the Lord brought her out of that darkness, through meditating on Scripture, taking every thought captive, purposely pulling back and giving herself time and space to heal, and taking the medications that were recommended and prescribed by her midwives. Sarah can speak from a place of experience and a place of feeling victory over this struggle. I hope you will listen and find encouragement and, as always, your own heart lesson to help you draw closer to the Lord.
God’s processes are not like mine, but He is still good through everything and He will draw us back to Himself.
The truth of God’s word trumps emotion or anything I might feel.
Isaiah 58:9 – Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry and He will say, “Here I am.”
Job 23:8-10 – Look, I go forward, but He is not there, and backward, but I cannot perceive Him; when He works on the left hand, I cannot behold Him; when He turns to the right hand, I cannot see Him. But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
