89. What music are you tuned into?

In this life, there are many melodies to which you can listen, and the choice you make will determine the quality of your life.

Is your music the harsh song of this world, the hammering away at your senses, and the constant strain of activities and events that play through your life?

Or do you listen to the flat and discordant notes

of depression or other affliction you may have?

Perhaps the music of your life, as played by this world, is pleasant and peaceful. You don’t have money problems, afflictions, trials and tribulations, broken relationships, or unpleasant circumstances. Life is sweet, but yet there seems to be something missing.

There is another melody that is distinctive yet quiet, playing in the spirits and hearts of believers – the song of the presence of Jesus Christ. If we tune our receivers into that melody, we can have peace, joy, and a meaningful life no matter what the outward circumstances and situations. This is the capstone that finally pulled me out of depression – healing of the body, soul, and spirit, and the greatest of these is spirit, though you ignore the other two at your peril. I have left the cares of this world, including my depression, to Him who loves me. You can do that also, and you’ll never regret it.

Tune into your spirit, and the song of Jesus will become louder and louder until it is a crescendo in your life. It doesn’t happen all at once; it is a process.

Let me know if you want to hear more of this melody of the spirit.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
