Looking Back

Well, my friends, it's been quite a day! If you read my earlier post entitled "Black" you'll know that today wasn't all that I had hoped it would be. Looking back, it turned out much better than I thought it might.

Depression rears its ugly head at the most inopportune times and yet we know that God is sovereign and our times are in His hands.

Earlier in the day I was paralyzed by panic, seemingly defeated by the big "D". I couldn't shake it! Of course I couldn't! At times like this we must realize that our meager efforts fall far short. Only by God's empowering Presence, His Spirit, can we get victory.

By the end of the afternoon I had crossed the line and was back in the land of the living. Several friends walked me though the darkness and into the light. Praise God!

So here I am, getting ready to go to bed at my Christian Horizons, night sleep job. Looking back, it's been a good day! I wouldn't trade a dark day like today with all its anxieties and fears but with the hand of God in evidence...for all the money in the world.

The Good Shepherd of the sheep leads us along at His pace and will guide us safely home.

Good night, friends!

God is good!

"When my soul is in the dumps, I rehearse everything I know of you." - Psalm 42:6 (The Message)
