It was the morning of November 9th, and I woke up feeling really down.  The depression came on as I was feeling really unworthy in life and love, specifically in relationships with people and relationships with God.  I was keenly aware of not being on anyones lists of ideal outcomes, and it had me in down state.

So  I got up and went to church and had one of those moments, where its obvious that part of a sermon is directly relating to me.  It was a little dissappointing that my favorite regular pastor wasn’t preaching, however Doug2 was preaching on 2 Thessalonians 1:3-12.  He kept talking about us being worthy.  That we are worthwhile.  At the moment, I was still too wrapped up in my own thoughts and emotions and going-ons to fully wrap myself in the message God was directing at me.  However, I did take mental note that this was one of those moments — when God had something direct for me to hear — and in that I felt at least a bit happier.

11With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.
