This has been one of "those" weeks. You know the type.
A great day followed by 3 really ugly days just in time for another awesome day.
It was a roller coaster I tell ya!
Depression made itself known this week. It snuck in without any warning and hit me straight in the face, and the stomach, and most of all the heart. It was rough not only on me, but on my husband who sometimes has to bear the weight of it when I can't. It's a really special thing to have, a husband who loves you so much he'll pick you up and keep going when you don't think you can go any longer. I am truly blessed to have him in my life.
Today was a great day and as I get ready for bed and think (and even worry a little) about what next week holds I got a reminder on my phone saying that I hadn't completed my daily devotional. It was on depression. Oh hey not so subtle hint!
Turns out it was just what I needed. He works in powerful, mysterious, and sometimes smack you in the face obvious ways.
" Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40 30-31
