Depression’s lies, part 2

Some really important stuff! to remember when you are depressed!

Gray Clouds, Clear Skies

The depression lies have been really loud these past few days.

Right now, depression is saying:

  • I’m unimportant.
  • I’m invisible.
  • I’m forgotten.


But Truth Says
:

I am important – so much so that Christ died for me.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

I am not invisible – God sees me. (El Roi – the God who sees)

Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the Lord, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.”[Hebrew: El-roi] She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?” So that well was named Beer-lahai-roi (which means “well of the Living One who sees me”). It can still be found between Kadesh and Bered. (Genesis 16:13-14)

I am not forgotten – I am engraved in the palms…

Yeah, well, ok.

This is not the subject of my blog post today but I don’t want to forget to ask: Do any of you use Akismet? It is a program that helps you control spam on your blog. I think it works real well. Unfortunately I had inadvertently signed up for automatic (annual) renewal. $36./year has been a bargain, unless it causes an overdraft, that would make it super expensive! YEAH. But no. Fortunately I had some $ in my account and it didn’t cause a problem.

SO now that you have gotten over the shock of seeing me on here…

I have been waiting to have something to say eloquently.

I mean, I have plenty to say. I mean, daily I brush my teeth, and the sun is shining today, and the fan is on reflective of it’s supposed to get to the mid 80’s again, and humid.

And, I drank my Dunkin Donuts coffee this morning after impatiently waiting to have my fasting blood work done (something I’ve p… yeah, see, there? That word I can’t find. OH – procrastinated! Something I’ve procrastinated on having done, seeing as how my blood sugar and cholesterol are gradually going higher. Seeing as how I can’t blame the psych meds ENTIRELY).

And then there is the small matter of my plans to move from Maine to Florida.

Yeah, see, there it is.

I wanted to announce it eloquently and explain my reasoning in a way that would answer any questions you might have.

But I am just too …

Yeah, see that is the part I can’t figure out. Why am I reluctant to tell you, why is it taking so long for me to write about it?

I guess it’s because I don’t have everything nailed down. And I haven’t told everyone. But most of the people who would read this already know.

Anyway, yeah. I am excited! And I want to be there yesterday! But I will be waiting til around the first of November, have all my q’s and t’s dotted and all that.

Meanwhile – HI! and hope you are all well. I will get around to explaining, soon. 😀
