244. The Storms of Life

We thought the calm and peaceful days would never end, but suddenly came a wintry blast that chilled us to the bone – in the guise of a lost job, a child taken in the bloom of life, a spouse who developed a wandering eye, a diagnosis of terminal cancer.

Take heart. God sees your troubles and will keep you close to Him so you are not strained to the point of breaking. That is His promise. And from even the lowest depths of your affliction, He will restore your life again, either in this world or the next.

“Though the winds may blow and the storms may come, yet my heart beats warm with the love of God.”

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.

    Reminds me of a statement my dad would say, ” The same winds hit all men; the difference is how you set your sails.”
