This evening there was nothing good on TV, so I kept channel surfing until I got to a Christian station; and a mass choir was singing these lyrics:
“All in His hands, Jesus has got me in His hands!”
Sitting crossed legged on my bed, facing the TV, munching on my bowl of crackers, I thought to myself, “I like it here, I’m doing okay…”
Then I thought again to myself, “What did you just say??! Haha, wow, I’ve never thought that before! I’ve never liked it here, in fact, I’ve always hated it here! But you know what? I’m okay wherever I am because Jesus is with me. Matter o’fact I’m blessed! Yeah! That’s right, I’m blessed! Thank you, Jesus!”
I’m not the same you guys. Depression is a thing of the past and I’ve started a new chapter in my life! Joy is the tune of my heart and my mouth will forever praise the name of Jesus. My heart delights in His loving kindness because I no longer carry the burden of those depressing sins on these tiny shoulders of mine. I nailed them to the cross and my mind is getting a daily wash with the blood of Jesus! I’m freeeeeee! ^_^
Thank you so much Jesus, because the portion of grace you give me in this day is sufficient for today! I’m just taking this journey one step at a time, day by day, with you by my side. I love you, Lord!
