DEPRESSIONS AND LET DOWNS

"Good morning world. Are you experiencing the Christmas let down? Are you depressed? Have you noticed how sad and empty the stores are in their picked over mess? 


Have you felt the cold setting in as the lights are going out, while being packed away . Have you had an overwhelming feeling of fear as you are putting up the Christmas tree, and the New Year is beckoning to you today?


Have you seen how empty your heart seems as the hollowday is leaving? Have you been swept up in the after party grieving?

 

Yes indeed with holiday depression setting in one more time followed by the fact....that not getting what you wanted.... Santa Claus has let you down in that disappointing line, have you wondered if you will be able to survive the challenges arriving in the 

New Years rite of passage.


And in that bleak frame of mind, now that Christmas has come and gone around the bend, 

are you one of the ones...

wondering when or if the 

party will ever come again?

 

Yes as some of you are thinking that Christmas is gone,

that Christmas is done,

that Christmas is over for good….

and 

that the fun times are through,  while going around the bend how are you feeling?


And thinking that you are suffering from the hollowday Blues, while

being depressed....

sadly my friend 

that means in the let- down that follows a hollowdays' end.....

in that growing cold depression you are not even sure that your next breath is following. 

 

Accordingly in review 

living in that misery, 

that means you have Not received the greatest present ever given of your salvation !


So repeatedly missing the meaning of the Holy day, 

you are also still missing the point to everything going along your way!

 

Hence in that ignorance that so much is missing in life you are now 

back in various stages of dying, crying, and balancing morning with mourning once more as opening up

let-downs door....

a new depressing day has come your way just like before!

 

Sadly saying that, since the elves are back on the shelves, while Santa has abandoned us, 

and our dear family members from out of town....

that we hardly ever see....

are either getting ready to leave, or have already left....

that leaves everybody irritable and understatedly very depressed also grumpy.

 

Yes, with some of you having no more fun to look forward to, 

or any more plans to come undone, or any reason to keep going on....  

the end result of an empty no meaning Christmas will find many of you black and blue, or 

just sad and blue too.

 

Understandably, since you have no more presents to open, 

and no more shopping to do, with 

reality setting in 

Realizing

life is Not a party…. 

as the Bills 

are coming DUE....

there seems to be a HUGE LET DOWN coming now,

that Santa with your sanity have each left town too.

 

Well if that is the way you are thinking then I feel very sorry for you,

because in 

depressions last call 

I am not feeling that way at all!

 

Ok, wait a minute 

that’s not really true,

because 

being human I am a little depressed like you.


Yes in the holiday let down I am sad and blue that my kids are gone too. 

 

That means I feel the same way as you, 

because it will be a year before I see my kids smiling loving faces again.


So believe me in that "clause of Claus"  I know how sadness and depression feels over all.

 

On the other hand, however 

I am very different from you, because my sadness and depression will not stay. 

Yes I only set aside one day to be depressed or 

to cry my sorrows away.

 

Joyfully saying that the next morning after gnashing my teeth mourning,

I am immediately in planning over drive to get ready for the next time I have my kids sitting happily by my  side.

 

So how do I do that? 

How can I stay positive when things around me are sad, depressing and cruelly negative? 


How can I keep writing words of encouragement every day when things in my life are also painful 

and less than thrilling in my work and play.

 

Well I am glad you asked that, 

because the strength I need to get through the depressing days, 

and my drive to share Jesus Christ’s love around the world with you in my stay, 

comes from the 

PRESENT THAT I OPEN EVERYDAY. 

 

Yes the Strength that conquers depression

Connected to the love that I share with you in my 

Mary Mission 

comes from my FAITH!

 

Therefore saying 

that faith will get you through your days....

I believe attached depression 

should not last.


I believe being unkindly depressed is a waste of time!

I believe let-downs should be left behind,since the past is in the past. 

 

So in that hopeful line of thought

that means the past full of its depression, let-downs, broken dreams, and painful screams cannot hurt us ever again, 

because that wrecking ball pain is over my friend. 

 

Subsequently knowing that Christmas is really 

Christ-mas, 

and knowing that celebrating Jesus Christ is forever….

I also know with 

heavenly love in our life 

pain cannot last past the night. 

 

And feeling that way realizing.... depression does not have to stay, 

I also believe the past is where we should Not remain!

 

Thus waking up this morning, and every morning in-between…

I believe if we waste one minute of that breathing miracle……. 

mourning or crying...

that we have given away a precious gift attached to a wonderful memory of the new morning arriving.

 

Simiarly even though a holiday may be over 

we still need to know that 

heavenly love 

goes on and on….

since today is where we get to do it all over again.


And doing anything all over again.... ( including breathing) that my friend is another true blessed gift given.

 

Subsequently in the faith that it takes to face tomorrow

as we continue fighting off depression found 

in the let-down of today.... 

I additionally believe that tomorrow will be the best yet to come

as the future delivers hope and the promise of heavenly play. 

 

Subsequently, because faith is greater than any hollowday

and faith believes the Lord is in control , 

we should also know that in Heavens guidance our blessings are arriving shore to shore.

 

Therefore knowing how great a day with Faith will always be....

I refuse to waste any more time than one day crying. 

After all like I just told a member of my family … 

 

Life is a Great celebration,

and 

when it isn’t a holiday.... 

we just need to believe and trust in Grace that it will be! 

Because dear ones Faith is believing, claiming, and Knowing the best of everything is coming!

 

And saying that one more time knowing there is a cure for depression found in the let-down of the past...

today we need to prepare for the coming New year that's arriving fast!

 

But in the meantime 

contemplating 

faith and tears…..

while conquering your fears, you also need to know 

to dissolve depression 

you must open up your 

PRESENT of Salvation 

that Jesus Christ gives us every day of our life.

 

So again as I have told many people throughout life….

to climb the mountain you need to be pushed up the cliff by your friends and family, 

but to reach the top summit

as you slip and slide 

going along on your trip 

taking lifes wild rides

you need Jesus Christ to lift you ALL up in your heavenly ascent to paradise!

 

Jointly in that flying rising thought 

remember 

when you accept your salvation through Jesus Christ, and you bring 

the bright righteous 

Son-light

into your life.....

while fighting off the 

let downs of depression

every day and every night, will be 

CHRIST- mas time.”

Thank you for reading my blog please know that you have just been prayed for( as I am also asking that you are praying for me. ) In that prayer please additionally know that every word I am writing is Spirit sent in its heavenly direction leading you to....

 

Your Prayer of Salvation

 

Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way.  Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.

 

So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....

 

Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.

 

In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day.  I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!

 

Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.

 

Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I  will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!

 

Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.

 

Amen

 

Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
