For those of you who know me well, you know that I have had an ongoing battle with depression, lately more than other times in my life. And for those of you who may not know me so well, I have battled depression and feelings of despair and loneliness for a few years now, on and off. And, really, my life is very blessed. I have two beautiful children, a wonderful husband, a beautiful home, a wonderful job, and recently finished my Master's Degree. Yet, my thorn in the flesh, just happens to be feelings of depression. I am starting this blog so that others like me can know that they are not alone! I am a Christian woman, in absolute passionate love with my savior, yet still I struggle with depression. Yes, you can be Christian, devoted, and still struggle with feelings of depression, even if you feel like there is nothing in your life to be depressed about! Some of us are just prone to those kind of icky feelings.
But, needless to say I am just plain tired of it. As Beth Moore would say, and I am an avid reader of hers, as she would say, just because we have grown accustomed to and are comfortable in the pit is NO REASON TO STAY! She also describes a pit as "an early grave Satan digs for you in hopes he can bury you alive!" Yikes, I definitely don't want to be buried alive! So, today I am beginning my journey, and sharing with you all in hopes that some of you will also be able to find your way out of the pit! Stay tuned! This should be fun!
