For a few days I was down! It’s such a horrible feeling being depressed,but it happens.And to make matters worse I can’t even figure out why,oh yea now it’s coming to me.Decision making that’s what happened,while trying to make the right decision about a situation.I feel into fear yuck another terrible place,yes the decision I made I feel I shouldn’t have.Then comes the buddy “guilt” another monster for sure.But even in my depression my mind kept going to different helpful scripture,thank God for his Holy Spirit! Our minds are powerful and if we’re not careful we’ll go even deeper into depression.While feeling sorry for myself,that’s what was happening,but again thank God for the Holy Spirit.For as he kept reminding me of God’s love for me,and that all he promises is true! It wasn’t long before I was back to my sane self,for real when we get into depression it’s as if we’re someone else,and the pain keeps coming.But God is “always aware” where we are,and he is more than able to take care of us! God’s Holy Spirit will do his work in us,just as God’s word said,he brings the word back to us.Causing us to “look” directly at Jesus!! It’s truly amazing how our mind works,and that old nature is a mess,always trying to get us to “bow down” to what we know is wrong.Again thank God for the Holy Spirit for he is so very much stronger than the old nature in us,and I give God praise for that!!! Yes the Spirit of God has lifted me,and it feels so good! I’m reminded of the old song “Love Lifted Me”,and he can lift you.God is no respecter of persons,he will give you help,when you trust in him. “Hallelujah” Oh how I praise and thank God for his precious Holy Spirit!
