Happy Scriptures for Melancholies
NOTE: As you read these scriptures over yourself it is VITAL that you read them OUT LOUD so that you can hear yourself speak. Romans 10:17 says So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. A person will trust their own voice (and God’s) before any other voice so hearing your voice speaking these words will bring faith to you. Read these every day on a regular basis, and whenever you need them for maximum results!

You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God: Your towns and your fields will be blessed. Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed

To give to those who mourn in Zion
Joy and gladness instead of grief,
A song of praise instead of sorrow.

That the Lord himself has planted.
They will all do what is right,
And God will be praised for what he has done.
Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
But You, O Lord, are a shield about me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
I was crying to the Lord with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
I lay down and slept.
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me round about.
Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God!
For You have smitten all my enemies on the cheek;
You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.
Salvation belongs to the Lord;
Your blessing be upon Your people! Selah.
You have put gladness in my heart,
More than when their grain and new wine abound.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice;
In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch.
But let all who take refuge in You be glad,
Let them ever sing for joy;
And may You shelter them,
That those who love Your name may exult in You.
For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord,
You surround him with favor as with a shield.
