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

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.
