A dark place

Satan brings me to this place more often than I would like. It is subtil, like he is, but depression sneaks up on you when you least expect it.

This is something that I’ve never really told anyone, not even my wife. Depression is an ugly feeling but it is also a disease as we know it today. It is one that claims lives and careers and families. It can make the strongest of us feel vulnerable and weak and insignificant and I have been walking around with it for years. I have tried to hide it until I can’t anymore. The only remedy that I have found for it is reading God’s Word, especially the book of Psalms. The Psalms don’t heal the depression but they do remind me that God is bigger than my fears and my depression. I need prayer from all of you and I pray that He will hear each and every one. Thank you.

  1. My heart bleeds for you, Tracy. It certainly is not easy to talk about these dark experiences, and I am glad you came forward to confess your weakness. Satan trembles at the weakest saint who comes to the only source of light, our Lord Jesus Christ. I know that you work above and beyond to share the Gospel through this platform, and that is slowly killing him. I know what it feels like to see your very precious soul being under attack, but I cannot begin to imagine your situation.
    Tracy, I want to help you and encourage you in any way I can. I cannot bear to see Satan treating you like this. I cannot have you feel like you are fighting alone, because God is with you every step of the way. Consider me as a part of your growing support system.
    I will be praying for you. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you need anything.
    In Christ,

    1. Good Morning Tracy,
      I hope you had a peaceful sleep last night. To follow up with our conversation yesterday, I literally have been praying all night for you– especially for your depression and your attacks. I kept thinking of Psalms 23 and Psalms 91, and some other Psalms you tend to meditate on during such occasions. I felt the need to send you a special surprise project for you which I will be making shortly that I hope will inspire you and comfort you. I should be finished for this by 11 AM, so feel free to check your email and reply back.
      I know it has not been easy these past few years, but I pray that God will use my talents to touch your heart today. Satan is no match for God’s child! Amen!

      1. I haven’t had any depression in a long time but whenever I do feel it, I begin reading through the Psalms and the Lord always speaks to me in them. Thank you for your prayers.
