Weathering Depression With God's Grace
Someday, soon, we will see everything with a sharp, crystal clear radiance, and then it will all make perfect sense!— Tamara Yancosky Moore
Weathering depression with God's Grace is very much achievable from my own personal experience. And, when I get distracted by the troubles of the moment, He gently tugs at my heart, reminding me that true peace is found in Him.
I like days of rain- heavy, “horse-galloping" rain! Overcast days, on the other hand, make me feel dissociated and deeply unsettled, as if the day, itself, is in a foreboding stage of not knowing if it wants to actually be full of sun, or have it’s earth beneath it, rained upon. [It is this disturbing, 'in-between stage‘ that distresses me so]!
This 'in-between stage‘, of an overcast day, is when the sky is in its throes of uncertainty and indecisiveness; it seems to not know, precisely, what it will do next. Or, even worse, perhaps it does know exactly what it will do next, but it is in its plotting phase, calculating its next sinister move!
These are the days that taunt, and sneer at me, threatening my very sense of foundation, teetering me up, and then back down, again, continuously, on an emotional seesaw.
But then, it always happens, as I am desperately sunken down to one of my lowest moods possible [in respect to mindfulness, of course], I am miraculously lifted up, and reminded by The Holy Spirit of the Glorious Truth that The Almighty Lord is The One in full control, and He does not, at any time, relinquish this control over to this unknown, mysterious 'in-between stage' that seemingly lurks out there, ready to cause doom, and destruction, to my existence!
This Comforting Truth breaks through my thick gloom of depression like a new day's dawning, and victoriously escorts me back into His brilliant light of joy, and happiness, again, in the knowing that I am safe, and secure, in Him- and only in Him!
Sun Shining Through Clouds
Though, at present time, we cannot fathom, or even begin to comprehend the obscured mystery of what His reasons might be for allowing all of the dark influences that plague our lives, and/or the lives of our loved ones, someday soon, we will understand it all with a crystal clear radiance that will be indescribably sharper than even the hint of comprehension that we are capable of ever encompassing, here, in this world. And, upon this newly reborn awakening, we will then declare in our very own words that, "Yes! His thoughts, and His Ways, have always been truly higher than our very own limited, and thickly clouded, thoughts, and ways, and yes, He truly knew what He was doing! How could we have ever doubted?"
Some people find overcast days to be very bleak, and depressing. I, myself, would rather have it raining very hard, or be very sunny, but not in-between, as in overcast days. But, whichever the mood of the weather, or my emotions, The Lord gives me strength, joy, and perseverance!
