For the past couple of weeks I have been battling depression. The funny thing is there is nothing wrong (well at lest not on the mega scale.) Maybe I am just dealing with getting older. I don’t seem to have as much pep in the step as my grandmother used to say. And now the TV is blaring about how the adult male loses testosterone as he ages. Great!
But to be honest the battle I am in is one of dependence. I am too dependent on myself. The longer I allow my spirit to feed on itself the weaker I become. I know that man was created to be in a dependent relationship with God, but I like to connect with that which I can see.
This reality flies in the face of the wisdom of the Scriptures.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your steps. Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
The balance I seek will only be found in re-establishing my trust above- not within.
