209. The Great “Yes”

Those of us who have lived with fears, anxiety, and depression are well aware of all the “no” circumstances and situations in life. “No, you will never get another job.” “No, you will never escape this depression.” “No, your anxiety will not allow you to attend this social event.”

The Apostle Paul tells us in the first chapter of 2 Corinthians that Jesus is the great “yes.” “Yes, you can trust God who sent His Son for us.” “Yes, Jesus will stand with you during this dark time of your life.” “Yes, the Holy Spirit will renew your mind from darkness into light.”

You can bank on the promises of God, as Paul says, because they have all been fulfilled in Jesus. Turn to Him for your relief and comfort, not the world or your own self.

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.
