Daily Depression Update – Day 2

Sunday was a relatively good day.  I went to Church in the morning and was encouraged by the messages I was receiving from God.  I was overwhelmed during the initial period of praise and worship.  We were singing the words:

Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.

And later (in the same song):

So take me as You find me,
All my fears and failures,
Fill my life again.

I broke down in tears during this song, one which I have listened to so many times (and one which I would say is a favourite of mine).  However, I just felt as though God was really speaking to me during this song.

The afternoon was tough as I reflected on what I had experienced at Church in the morning.  I spent some time in reflection and prayer.  I also turned to my bible and found myself reading some very inspirational words, words which I have read many times before but only really realised the significance of today.

I was emotionally exhausted from the morning and the afternoon, but I struggled out to the evening service and I was bombarded with even more from God.  It felt as though the preacher was speaking directly to me, as if God was making sure that I heard loud and clear His message to me.

When I got back from Church in the evening my mood was the best it had been for quite some weeks, and I just hope that it stays this way but who knows.

While I was reflecting on everything that I had experienced during the day I was reminded of yet more lyrics from another praise and worship song.  This, I believe, was yet another message from God.  The lyrics were:

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

And I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
We’ll live to know You here on the earth

It was a stark reminder that even though I may feel alone and isolated I am not.  I have plenty of friends and ultimately I have God walking with me and He is there, ready to listen and to help if I need Him.  Such an encouraging day!

I know for many of you who read my blog religion isn’t really your thing, but it is of great comfort, help and support to me.  I don’t know how today would have panned out had I not had my belief in God and had I not gone to Church, especially given the content of my thoughts during last night.  Praise the Lord!

Anyway, I am off to bed.
