Sometimes you may feel that neither faith, joy or hope can find you. You may be in a place of dryness, uncertainty and stagnation. You may stare at your low “joy ceiling”, pace the floor, sleep all day, eat compulsively or not eat at all. You may isolate and want to give up because you ache for a divine and loving relationship, peace in your family, better finances, a home, increase in your business/ministry, help for your child, spouse of parent. You may just want to be left alone or you may be yearning for connections and companionship. Maybe you are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Millions of people suffer from depression (e.g. sadness, hopeless, fatigue and loss of interest). Depression is an illness that involves the body, mood, and thoughts. It interferes with daily life, normal functioning, and causes pain for both the person with the disorder and those who care about him/her. For some this dis-ease is treatable. Click this link to learn about the many types of depression.
For some people depression is short term …a temporary blue mood. Medical and mental health support is not in my wheelhouse. I can offer emotional and spiritual support for those not suffering from chronic disorders of depression.
If you have short lived episodes of anxiety feeling sad and overwhelmed, I render these thoughts below for emotional and spiritual wellness with my Depression Poster below.
If you find that all hope is gone, I pray you breathe in hope and remember the moments of sunshine and sweetness to heal your wounds and get through your difficult times. I pray that you will not be weary in your well doing and live with hope, gratitude and resiliency. I pray, that just like a flower is determined to bloom no matter the circumstances, that you will also bloom in spite of the brokenness in your life.
The flower in this picture went through dirt and broken concrete seeking the sunlight. Whatever you are going through, I pray that you “grow” through it so you can see better days. I believe with every fiber of being that you can make it! You are stronger than you realize. Be resilient and push through your “dirt and broken concrete”. Push through to see the light of your possibilities. Push through today. Push through believing that God is with you in the joy and pain…sunshine and rain.” ~ by Jewel Diamond Taylor, author of “I Am Resilient, www.DoNotGiveUp.net/IAMResilient To contact Jewel call 323.964.1736 or email – Jewel@DoNotGiveUp.net
