Monday Morning Devo - Not the Only One
I've been debating about continuing in the line of sharing my heart. You see, I don't want to depress others or make them worry about me. However, God has been telling me others need to hear this too. I'm not the only one.
Sometimes depression caused by an event (and I suppose all depression) can leave a person feeling like they're especially alone--alone and the only one who is suffering in this particular depressing time. That you are (I am) the only one who gives a darn about how you (I) feel. And the ones who do care stare at you (me) and pity you (and me too). It's bad enough wallowing in self-pity without the world pitying us too.
But the thing is, we aren't alone in this, you and I. Others have felt just as depressed--worse, if truth be told. Others have had even worse things happen in their lives. Even if it doesn't feel like it.
And they have gotten through it.
Even though at one time they didn't think they would. The heavy feeling in your chest will one day be an easier load to carry, with God's help. God helping, we can muddle through. God helping, we will find someone to help us past this, someone who understands this feeling, someone who had this event take place in their lives too.
And those of you who have been there--please, would you find someone to help?
Because--it could save their lives. It's that important. You see, some people give up before it's past.
Lord, please--bring us together, those who have been there and those who are there. And thank You for holding us, always. Amen.
