“A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” That is my unequivocal belief, and I experienced it in my own triumph over depression. Where does that sentence come from? It is found
In Scripture, Ecclesiastes 5:6:
Though one may be overpowered,
Two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Though this verse refers to people, I have interpreted it from the viewpoint of depression. If you only take medication, you can still become overpowered by the situations and circumstances of life.
If you combine medication with psychotherapy/counseling, you have a firmer base to defend yourself against depression.
If you add on the spiritual dimension, you will have the cord of three strands that will not be quickly broken.
In this blog, I am not just throwing things together that I find here and there and think are interesting. The blog site as a whole is meant to present a holistic approach to overcoming depression, and each posting is based on the healing elements of body, soul, or spirit – or all three like this posting. For example, the last post (32) was Can the Mind Heal Depression? The mind is within the soul, as are the emotions and the will.
If you want to achieve mastery over depression, choose the holistic approach of body, soul, and spirit, choose a cord with three strands. Make a comment if you have any questions or want to record a success story. This is not a blog for myself; it is a blog for you.
