I know that in time and with care, for myself, I am going to believe that I am truly living the way the God of my understanding wants me to live. We need to know what our priorities are. If you don’t already know this question about yourself, you can work it out by becoming something that is important to you and asking., “Why is this important?”
CLARFICATION OF THOUGHT
I came to believe that a power greater than myself can restore me to sanity is really one of my belief priorities and one which brings me a certain amount of serenity everyday. I know and believe that this is what is most important to me in my life. In my efforts to free myself from the fear and insecurity of depression, I am living in the solution instead of in the problem.
I only want to do what I believe will allow me to live with a desire to do God’s will. He will not let me fall back again into the false comfort of my attachments to depression. So much of my attachment to these ongoing negative thoughts about myself and my future seemed to flow so naturally into my thoughts. They have all been brought to light and are daily exposed. I am trading them in for thoughts which are new and unfamiliar, but healthier, as I now live with gratitude.
We need your help now God. We seem to believe that it is all too much for us to bear with so many disappointment and burdens. We feel a bit like Job, the Bible character . We will attempt for just twenty-four hours to hang onto our faith that you God will bring me through our darkness today. (Personal reflection).
