Me, Myself, and I (Depression)

Scripture:  Philippians 4:7-9 "and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you."
Lord! I believe I am in a state of depression,
Things externally appear okay, but I have confessions;

I am processing information that’s taking me to my break,
My first confession, I am developing ideas that are unsafe;

My thoughts are one-sided, misled, and distorted,
So, discouragement and hopelessness are the info that’s recorded;

I am all alone and by myself, while my ship is sinking,
There’s no one close enough to change my ways of thinking;

Often, feeling sorry for myself, while talking badly to myself,
My second confession is my pride that convinces me not to call for help;

So, I listen to faulty ideas from me, about me, based on what I can only see,
This involves emptiness, fear, sin, suicide, sadness, guilt, and anxiety;

Clearly, I need to stop talking to myself because my matter is getting worse,
My third confession is I refused to seek the Lord to talk to Him first;

The Lord has a person for me, an angel for me, and Himself for me,
He delivers supernatural provisions that will lift my depression and set me free;

The Lord wants me to talk to Him, a seasoned saint, or a friend with a godly objective,
Feelings may be real, but we don’t have to stay there, Lord give me biblical perspective;

I need the peace that surpasses all understanding,
I desire to trust You outside of my thoughts and planning;

You promised to guard my heart and mind,
Meanwhile, I will meditate on You rather than pressing rewind;

Therefore, I am making my request known,
Lord, keep Your promise that I will never be alone.

Prayer: Let us fix our eyes on Jesus!  We know that You are true, noble, pure, and of good report. What a mighty God we serve. Consume our minds Father. Holy Spirit intervene when we give too much thought to what we see. Expose and remove the things that will lead us to destruction. You told us that You would guard our minds and hearts Father. Well, there are many that need You now. Many are depressed, alone, empty, struggling, and at their end. Meet them where they are Father. Be their only option. Save their souls! Renew their minds and hearts. Restore them with the things of God. Give them hope! Only You Father! Only You can do this. In the name of Your Son Jesus Christ.

Amen Bro. Glenny. “ Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit. 13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,

And sinners shall be converted to You” Ps 51:12-13. Thank You Jesus, that we can lay at Your feet and cast all of our burdens and thank You for Your deliverance. Thanks for the encouragement Bro. Glenny.

Amen. Thy Word is as a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. For the many who are depressed, or struggle with recurrent seasons of it, Lord we pray a breakthrough, and deliverance in Jesus' name! Let each day be suitable for re-discovering some measure of grace, and the peace attached to it.
