When I get bummed out, I find it best to pray, sort out my thoughts and feelings, and try to have God show me what He wants me to learn from the situation or how best to deal with it. Sometimes exercising, talking with a close friend, eating good food, and counting my blessings help. ~ Bill Greguska


Romans 12:12  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.


It is not hard to feel bummed out from time to time. Just realize that you are in a short season in life and that this too shall pass. Life can be stressful at times, trust God, and He will see you through. Here are some encouraging scriptures that deal with feeling bummed out.

Bummed Out vs. Being Depressed

There is a big difference between being bummed out compared to being depressed. Being bummed out lasts for a short period, and a person recovers from it usually quite quickly. We all have been bummed out in our lives. It is a part of life that no one can avoid entirely. The definition of bummed is slang for feeling upset or disappointed. You can feel sad because your basketball team lost; we would call being bummed out.

What To Do When You Are Bummed Out?

1 Peter 5:7 Cast All Your Anxiety On Him Because He Cares For You!

Bad days happen...We may snap at people, causing them to be a little ruder and a little less understanding with us. We may notice more of the adverse events and fewer festive events that happen to us. Here are some ideas that can be genuinely helpful:
Talk To A Good Friend- Sometimes, just talking with a good friend in person or on the phone can help you pull out of things by pointing you to Jesus and His teaching. 
Take a Prayer And Meditation Break- Both prayer and meditation can be great tools for helping people get into a different frame of mind. Even a 5- or 10-minutes of prayer and meditation can give you a needed break from what’s stressing you.
Count Your Blessings- Gratitude is another excellent tool because it is hard to focus on how bad things are when focusing on how good things are! List at least ten or more things you’re grateful for. The next thing to do is to focus on 2 or 3 items. Doing this can give you an entirely new outlook and ultimately turn a bad day around!
A Little Work Out- Sometimes, this is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Working out can relieve built-up stress and get your entire body and mind in the right frame of mind again.
