300. The King in His Kingdom

In previous blogs, I have pointed out that an unhealthy allegiance to your own self can be a source of depression and other dark places. However, self can’t throw out self, and if it could there would be a vacuum within you, and vacuums are filled by whatever is in the vicinity.

In John 18:37, Jesus says, “I am a king.” He is indeed the King of the human race, the second Adam. If we vacate our allegiance to our self and let Him occupy our souls, our life can be one grand vacation. When His Spirit permeates our soul, thinking exclusively about our self is replaced by thoughts of Him. Jesus in our soul is the King in His Kingdom and light in the darkness.

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.
