275. One of the Threads

I wrote this poem in 2009 when I was lost in a fog of depression and wallowing in the self-centeredness of my own misery.

You are all-powerful,
and I am not.

You are the Creator,
and I am not.

You are from all eternity,
and I am not.

You are faithful,
and I am not.

You are God,
and I am not.

I adore, worship, and praise You,
for my life here on earth and for all eternity.

As my pen came off the paper, I felt the fog of depression lifting a bit as I came out of myself and into the presence of God. It was one more thread of the fabric that eventually pulled me out of major depression.

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.
