Depression is Made of This…

  • When the sun’s shining and you seem neither to see its brightness nor feel its warmth…
  • When you hear the birds singing and it sounds like noise…
  • When life’s realities become comparable to nightmares …
  • When if it’s not tears flowing in their volumes, then it’s a stinging in the eyes and they look all watery /teary
  • When you remember the verse ‘Tears are my food day and night’, you know too well how that is and how they taste…
  • When one of the most comforting verses is ‘You keep track of all my all my sorrows, You have collected all my tears in a bottle’~ Psalms 56:8
  • When there is such pain within, a pain you can’t put a finger on, but it’s there…
  • When you are so hurting and no words can explain the extent and intensity of it…
  • When you have a dizziness that won’t just leave…
  • When you just want to lie down and hope sleep takes you up to wherever it takes someone and hope not to wake up any soon
  • When you don’t want to look at yourself on the mirror, scared of seeing the dreadful look
  • When you look at your pictures of days gone and seeing the beautiful smiles and cheerful looks you wonder whether there were really such times…
  • Memories of beautiful days come to mind and you see a picture of yourself in your mind and it’s like just a sculpture of sorts…
  • When you try to do what there is to be done, but you can’t focus…concentration equals nil…
  • When you hear or see people laughing and wonder what there is to laugh about…
  • When you get to be really sad, you don’t wanna say a thing…
  • When you try to talk, no voice seems to come out..it’s like your vocal codes are gagged…
  • When nothing seems to taste good, be it food or drink…
  • When you don’t look forward to tomorrow for the pain today is bad enough already
  • When you are utterly scared of what may come to be
  • When nothing seems to make sense at all…

What to do when these and more are facts in ones life…

When all this and more along these lines is what you are going through,
It indicates something, the something being some sort of depression.
It’s good to acknowledge what you are going through; realizing there is a problem, for it’s is the first step towards healing…

What better time to come to terms with all this but this Easter Season…Taking it all to Jesus, He who is able to set free from all the chains binding, calm the storms causing these situations, get you out of these less than desirable situations that seem to be holding one down…

Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you ~ 1Peter 5:7

God cares about all that I’m going through, up to the last details, I will wait on Him. May He lead and guide me, letting me know what this is all about…is there any significance to all these?

I can only look forward to sing out the verse that says ‘He Has turned my mourning into dancing again’

    I agree with you that – I can only look forward to sing out the verse that says ‘He Has turned my mourning into dancing again’ – and the verse – Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you ~ 1Peter 5:7 –
    You really made a plain diagnosis about, and if someone is in some sort of depression!
    ‘Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.’ Isaiah 60:1 – He gave them/us/me/you beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they/we/I/you might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. (according to Isaiah 61:3).
    God Bless You.
