Are You Stressed Out, Lack Energy, and Feel Depressed?
We know the B vitamins are very important for the nervous system. When our nerves are frayed, we experience stress and chronic fatigue more easily and we may even have depression. The commonly consumed B vitamins are very difficult to convert in the body to what is considered the biologically active form. Many people, particularly those who are type 1 and type 2 diabetics, cannot convert B vitamins in the liver to those that are used for various functions in the body. Additionally, 30% of the population are also poor converters of B vitamins.
There are B vitamins available, particularly B6, B12 and folate, already in a form that the body can use without the process of conversion. These three B vitamins provide the body with energy, reduce stress, and for many people, they may actually eliminate depression. These three B’s are particularly beneficial for women who are pregnant since they are used so quickly because of the needs of the fetus. However, in both cases of depression and pregnancy, it may be beneficial to check with your physician before you take a new nutritional supplement.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
We all face challenges and obstacles in this life. We all have dreams in our hearts, and at times, it looks like they’re not going to come to pass. During these difficult seasons, we have a choice. We can get negative and discouraged and talk about how things are not going to work out, or we can switch over into praise and thanksgiving which opens the door for God to move on our behalf.
A lot of times people think, “I’ll have a good attitude as soon as I get over this health issue.” “Joel, I’ll give God praise when I get through these tough times.” But that’s not how faith works. As long as we’re negative, discouraged and focused on our problems, it limits what God can do. You’ve got to give God praise first, and then the breakthrough will come. You’ve got to change your focus first, and then things will change in your favor. Praise always precedes the victory.
Today, if you’ve been dwelling on the wrong things and focusing in the wrong direction, switch over into praise and thanksgiving. Begin to declare that God is good. Declare that He is faithful. Declare His praises and open the door to victory in every area of your life!
