23. The Depression Healing Car

You desperately desire your depression to become better so you can move on with your life. One morning, in the fog of depression, you look outside and see a car waiting for you with signage painted on both front doors – The Depression Healing Car.The motor in this car uses three spark plugs, which are lying on the front seat for you to put in. One plug is called “body,” one “soul,” and one “spirit.”

If you only plug in the “body” spark plug, you are in for a rough ride. If you add the “soul” spark plug, the ride becomes smoother. If you finally add the “spirit” plug, The Depression Healing Car runs as it should.

You see, we are beings with three dimensions – body, soul (mind, will, emotions), and spirit – and all three dimensions need to be addressed if we want the most complete healing for depression. It wasn’t until I realized this that I was caught up in the healing process in earnest and have now come out on the other side.

I will address each of these dimensions separately in my next three postings. Stay tuned.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
