Everybody has that time where they hit rock bottom. It could be anything such as a bankruptcy, a divorce or a death of a loved one. Life happens to all of us at one point or another. You may feel like you have hit a wall and life has you pinned down to the ground. You are lying flat on the ground and all you can do is look up. You feel stuck. You feel paralyzed as you look up and see all the things you want, hope and desire just pass you by.
Psalm 34:18, 19. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
You lie there, and the decision is do you stand up and start fighting for those things you want, hope and desire? Or do you continue to lie there and stare at all the things you want, hope and desire?
There is no one else that can do anything for you. The only thing that is capable of destroying the cause, process and effects of depression is God’s hope and his word of hope. The solution is to get God’s hope back inside of you. His hope will give you the clarity to once again see all the possibilities for your future. Hope also gives you the motivation to take action and the encouragement to stay on the road to faith and joy.
Psalm 55:22 – Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
