I Don’t Struggle with Depression Anymore

I don’t struggle with depression anymore. Even on my worst days I’m not depressed. I can tell the difference between a bad moment and depression. Depression is a deep-seated thing. It is a living thing. It grips your perception and uses your thoughts as a weapon against you. It digs down into your soul and plants roots that slowly but aggressively choke the life out of you. It lies to you and siphones the authenticity and joy out of you until you can nolonger perceive yourself and your life properly. It’s a heavy delusion that sits down on your life and makes itself at home like it has a right to be there. But it doesn’t.

Finally one day there was a clearing and a break in my cloud of heaviness and I realized the voices in the cloud weren’t mine and weren’t God’s. They were unauthorized voices speaking confusion and death to areas were God had given life.

I rebuilt my life on God’s words and God’s voice. The little bit of light that broke through the cloud was God clearing a path for me to get a good enough glimpse of Him that would change my view forever. This post is your glimpse. I hope it shines just enough light to break through your cloud and light your way back to God’s reality for your life.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

I don’t struggle with depression anymore. Even on my worst days I’m not depressed. Depression is not welcome in my home anymore and I pray that the home in your head will be one of peace, well-being and hope as well.
It’s ok if you need a professional counselor or therapist to help you do this. 😊
