207. Put Boundaries on Fear

Fear is the ultimate condition that emboldens the lies of the world and the darkness within our souls. “I’m all alone and there is no one to help me.” “This upcoming terrible thing will put me under, and there is nothing I can do to stop it.” “It seems the world is against me again.” “God has left me alone; He doesn’t love me.”

If such fears threaten to drive you into depression, shout “Stop!” as loud as you can, shutting the door of your soul to fear and putting boundaries around it. The antidote to depression is God’s presence. He has said that He will never leave us or forsake us. The Bible is full of verses on fear, and they are all the same: look to God for deliverance, trust Him, and love Him as He loves us.

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.
