206. Say “No!” to the Surface You

The previous blog talked of being The Inward Person.

How can that be done? You have a body that is on the surface. You have a mind, will, and emotions that are below the surface but are not the deepest part of you. If you want the peace of the inner person, live out of your spirit.

Talk to God throughout the day, as Brother Lawrence did. Make God’s life more important than your own, as King David did. Keep God in mind every waking minute, as Frank Laubach did. Have a list of those you pray for daily, as C. S. Lewis did. Experience God in your creative imagination, as George MacDonald did.

These are your great cloud of witnesses. They are watching you and cheering you on. Finish the race strongly and receive your reward in heaven.


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.
