218. Stay Away from the Surface

The surface of life is fraught with anxiety, hardships, pressures, and grief. There may be a great war in the Middle-East, you may owe more on your house than it is worth, the pressure to get things done my be overwhelming, or a dear friend or relative may have recently departed.

Life is like an ocean. On the surface the water is turbulent and unpredictable, whereas water deep down is calm. You can’t escape the turbulence in your own life, but you can choose to live out your life in the depths of your being. Jesus says, “look to Me first, look to eternity, stay in the depths.” That’s good advice for all of us.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
