One of Those Nights

I’m drinking an Amaretto Sour (heavy on Ameretto, light on sour) and watching For Colored Girls.

Tonight is going to be one of those nights.

When my old foe, Depression, attempts to pull me into the dark abyss of self-pity and hopelessness this is the Bible verse I cling to:

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. (Revelation 21:4)

I’m sharing this for all those with tears, pain, and heartache.

Pray, persist, and prepare for a time when all this will be a forgotten memory.

  1. Rae you are a wonderful person loved by God now. His Holy Spirit is with you and He is your good Shepherd. Dwell on Psalm 23 and not some negative thing. For He leads you to lie down in the green pastures, beside the still waters. He restores your soul and leads you in paths of righteousness for His name sake. Pretty good news and it is real life tonight. For He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Blessing and love to you from Florida.

  2. I pray that every principality and force of depression is bound in the mighty name of Jesus Christ! I rebuke and pull down the strongholds of hopelessness, anxiety, heaviness, fear, dark clouds and pain being projected against the children of God. I bind every seasonal affliction of depression, programmed into our days to hinder the work of our hands and I render it null and void in Jesus name.I plead the blood of Jesus to cleanse, protect and deliver your daughter and any other person battling depression.I command the peace of God that surpasses all understanding to govern their hearts and minds right now. Heavenly Father we thank you for comforting us with your presence because in your presence there is fullness of Joy. We thank you for comforting us with the Holy Spirit,in Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen .

  3. Get a grip Rae, change right now what you are doing!!! ,whatever you put in your body and before your eyes that is not uplifting will pull you further down faster. You cant play around with alcohol with the demons you are fighting.
    ‘ Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.’
    Reach out for some Christian support Rae until it passes. You need someone to sleepover or go to somewhere ‘safe’, you sound very isolated .
    Praying for God to send you a real Christian friend to walk with you.on your journey.
    God Bless, I will be looking for your victory post. Love and Hugs, Nanny.

    ~ I once heard the preacher John Piper talk about his depression which he had for ~ 5 years straight. He said that one of the verses that he used to often repeat to himself was:
    “Why are you downcast o my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” ~ Psalm 42:5, 42:11 and 43:5.
    I have found great help in the same verses and really all of Psalm 42 during mild to severe downs. In fact I have said it to myself so often that I basically memorized it unintentionally.
    The thing with the verse is that it asks a question and this question becomes like a prompt that the Holy Spirit uses to get us look within and begin the process of sorting things out. Say it to yourself enough and see what happens. It has a rhythmic quality to it (even the mount mizar part). Oks. Take care. In prayer for a bunch of you up above.
