Why Am I Always Sad?
Do you ever feel down for no reason? Are you in the dumps during times that used to make you happy? Does your sadness affect how much you care … about anything? Are you on the edge of tears so often it hurts?
We all get sad sometimes because we’re human, but long-term sadness is not good for you. It affects you physically which is why many people wonder why their heart hurts.
What makes you sad all the time? People struggle with so many different aspects of this life. There are many causes for their sorrow, but God offers us hope. The Bible says, “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18).
God can help you in this situation, and He wants to help you because He loves you. Whether you realize it or not, you probably have felt deep down inside that you were not worth loving and your life was barely worth living. But there’s good news—God loves you! How do you know He loves you? Because Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, was willing to die for your sin so that you could become part of His family.
If you had been the only person with sin in the whole world, Christ still would have sacrificed himself for your sins. That’s how much He loves you!
This is why one of the most important things you can do is to begin to see yourself the way God sees you. You won’t be the same once you realize God’s love is focused on you. “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (1 John 3:1).
Jesus is ready for you. He said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Don’t let this world keep you down. Accept Jesus into your heart so He can make it whole. Let Him replace your sadness with joy.
Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!
Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.
Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!
Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
