267. One Sunday in 2006

Depressed manFrom my journal…

“The depression was so horrible this afternoon that I cried. Then I cried out to Jesus, ‘Take my hand. Lead me. Simplify my life as I look only to You. I am at the end of my rope. But though You slay me, yet will I praise You.’

“Psalm 107. ‘The people cried out to the Lord in the distress of their affliction and troubles, and He healed them and brought them out of their distress.’ They cried out to the Lord, as I did this afternoon, and finally He calmed me down.”

Today as I write this posting, depression is far away.

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.
