The bible tells us, there is a time and a season for everything in our lives, (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
So many people are under an extreme amount of pressure these days, experiencing depression and anxiety and not quite understanding what is going on with them. I feel it is important to be open about the fact that, while dealing with my precious mothers sickness, shortly after her death, I had a nervous breakdown! That happened because I was so overwhelmed and depressed, but mostly because, I didn’t talk about what was going on within me. I over thought every decision I made about her medical care, the surgeries, even agreeing to let her no longer be treated with dialysis. She just wanted to live out the rest of her days in peace, and I let her.
If you are experiencing the pain of sickness, sadness, anxiety depression or loss, it may not seem like it right now, but your pain is only temporary. You have to fight to get better. You may be crying, but your tears will soon dry. You will feel happiness again, you will smile again. “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalms 30:5).
