It is about to get real, REAL QUICK! When I created sispreachit I told myself that whenever I am experiencing difficulties I think it is important that I share them with my readers. My life is not perfect and I simply want to be more relatable than informal. I told myself I would not be one of those bloggers that only post about the positives of being a Christian because countless times the Bible speaks out about trials Christians deal with.
In the past couple of months, I have been struggling with depression, especially in July. I am really bad at bottling up my emotions. I have been seeking advice from some friends and family in regards to this, but, if I am being honest, it became worse. This month, I needed a break from home so left Florida to visit my sister and brother in California. It was a great distraction for five days but once I came back home... I felt everything all over again.
I can fake a happy smile all day if I need to. Just like in the picture taken above. Deep down my emotions just stay within and I have become embarrassed about my pain. This sounds ridiculous typing but it is what I have been feeling.
Through the midst of my storm, I still bless Jesus. I caught myself seeking biblical advice and of course, it brought me to Job. Everything that Job felt, I felt. I can just feel his pain and could deeply relate. Through it all, he still blesses Jesus.
It had me thinking, if Job can do it, I can do it. If you have been feeling how I have been, so can you.
We all go through seasons of loneliness. We all go through emotional depression. We all go through mishaps. Just please, DO NOT let the enemy win the battle that Christ already won for you.
I am with you. It is going to get better. Believe it. Speak it into existence.
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
