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.
