depression taken away


Money is scarce, trying to make ends meet

Hoping to get back on my feet.

Food in the fridge is very low- do not know which way to go.

I just lost my cell phone, now the creditors are calling at home.

Late notices are in the mail, threatening to take me to jail.

I was starting to lose hope and faith, and none of these

Creditors are willing to wait.

So down to my knees I did fall, and no more excuses left to stall.

With tears in my eyes, I started to pray, asking my LORD

To show me the way.

Dear LORD! I do not know what to do, so I must depend on you.

I know that I had turned away and that I no longer would kneel to pray.

I need you like before, when I was down you opened the doors

I was a churchgoer, a believer in you, you gave me everything

My family too.

Now I am starting to lose it all – and on you, I must call.

Give me back the strength so that I may move ahead

Help me to get rid of this bed.

Depression will steal your will to live, and I have so much to give.

Family and friends are all around. Yet! I do not hear a sound.

They all say I must find the way to fight this sickness day to day.

Then from the corner of my eye, a flicker of light began to shine.

A light becoming like the blazing sun – with   a voice saying

                   HIS “WILL” BE DONE

I saw a form starting to take shape, and an angel then appeared

And started to wipe away my fears.

Depression is a state of mind , and the devil will keep you blind

Just search out the light that lies ahead, and the LORD will clear your head.

This is the message he had given to me, and now my mind is set free.
