We’re in the second week of Spain and I think the dementor (depression) has arrived. I’m having a harder time reading my bible and even praying but what I realized is all I need to do is press play.
Uplifting, encouraging, renewing, positive Christian music helps me get out of the funk. Transition for someone with depression is hard, especially because you feel alone like no one else understands. It’s not easy having no place to lay. I love comfortiblility because it makes my depression rear its head less, well this is uncomfortable.
The beauty of having a relationship with God is that I know through this I can grow and only get stronger through this. Even better than that I can pass my experiences on to the next person, and bring glory to God.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NIV)
