I am just curious as what you all do when you are sad?

What kinds of techniques do you use to come out of your slump?

I open my bible to where God leads. He has never let me down. I really think about what I read and it's meaning. If I am unsure, I ask others about the verses for help. I have always felt better after doing this....sometimes it isn't immediate, but inevitably opens more doors for me.

I praise the Lord: by 1) singing (traditional) hymns/inspiring (modern) songs, 2) singing in the Spirit (ie. using the gift of tongues, 1Cor 14v15,18); to reinforce numbers 1 & 2, 3) I also remember what the Scriptures say what I am in the Lord Jesus and how much God loves me...John 15v9, 17v23, Rom 8v17,26-39...

Generally by the time I have done 1 & 2, God's Presence has lifted any heaviness/burdens and I have joy where there previously was heaviness etc...Neh 8v10

First I listen to "angry" music to get it out, then I listen to worship, or visit Christian forums

I praise God. There's a Biblical science to it, if I can call it that, but when you praise God, you feel happy.

I try to focus on the many blessings I have received from God during my life. He has blessed me abundantly, including bringing me through a life threatening illness a couple of years ago. At my age, I know the down times never last. With God beside me, better times are right around the corner.

I usually get in the car and take a drive with the music playing loudly and the windows down! :) It helps me clear my head and think about how grateful I am to be on this beautiful earth that God created.

I muse until I either learn something about myself/life, or until the mood passes.

Music usually plays a big role in my slumping and recovery, too. :)

I listen to Leeland's music when I feel down! ;) :p lol I listen to praise music when I'm down. I can just sorta just sit and listen and just feel God's love. And then sometimes I also play praise music. :) I just grab that guitar and just go to my happy place. lol I might be a perfectionist when it comes to me playing, sometimes I get to where I don't care and I play it anyways. :p

I read my Bible out loud so that the enemy can hear it to. Makes him sad and me happy :) Singing praise to our Father and praying for others increases that happiness into joy. Then I Pray the Scripture! :) Depending on the reason for the sadness determines the extent of the battle. It is Spiritual warfare and God gave us a Sword to use, His word. :) Sometimes I sit down with another brother or sister and talk about it.
