Craig Harrison - Coffee With Jesus

As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, and wait for the sun to rise, I was reflecting on how many people suffer from anxiety and depression, and how hard it sometimes is for their families and friends. I do not know if I really understood depression until this last year, but I have come to believe that it is very REAL.  I have found trying to focus on positive things and counting my blessings helps me to get through those difficult days.  

The problem is, when you are going through depression, others do not always understand. They think you should just be able to snap out of it. But, like so many other illnesses, it is usually a very private and silent thing.  Do not be ashamed if you feel depressed!  You are not alone!  Just know that we are members of the same club. 

Maybe you do not suffer from depression, but I guarantee you, there is somebody in your life who does!  Pray for them, walk with them, and make sure that you are patient with them.  I still have very strong bouts of depression!  It seems that every time I do, Jesus reaches out and takes my hand; I realize he carried me through another day.  And tomorrow will be a new day filled with light. 

I find that turning to the Scriptures, or sharing with people you can trust, or seeing a therapist if you must, can all help bring you out of the darkness.  Depression is not necessarily a club I would choose to join, but I have certainly met amazing people who have taught me how to keep moving forward and keep focused on the LIGHT.  

I know that Jesus is the light!  I believe that is why Jesus came into the world as the LIGHT, to clear the darkness.  Today is going to be an amazing day because I will walk in the light. 

Have a wonderful day.
