205. The Inward Person

The darkness of life starts at the surface. Things like bad weather, a lousy job, disrespectful people, and tragedies of various sorts. When you are living on the surface, even if you are happy now, unhappiness is just around the corner.

There is a different choice you can make. Like the water deep in the ocean, calmness of soul occurs in the depths of your being. You are a child of God and He loves you no matter the situations or circumstances. Though you have just lost a spouse, you can still be the solid rock of your family if you are inwardly strong. And even if your house has been wiped out by a raging flood, you can still be kind to others.

I believe that Scripture says it best in 1 John 4:4: Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: “because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” When the surface life is bringing nothing but darkness, be The Inward Person.

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.
