For those moments…

Depression doesn’t dawn on you with a warning,

It doesn’t check if you have a support system in place.

And no matter how efficient you are in avoiding it,

Sometimes it still wins.

And that’s Okay.

There are mornings I can’t get out of bed,

There are days when all I want is to disappear,

There are moments when I wish the earth would stop spinning – cause I needed a minute.

There will always be bad days and better days,

And that’s Okay.

For when my heart can’t hope for the light,

For when my neurotransmitters are so messed up,

For when the nights are worse and the days just drag on,

For when simply breathing tires me out,

For when sleep doesn’t show up and I can not get up from bed.

And for every other moment that drains me and drives me to the edge,

I have found strength in my Saviour.

He doesn’t make it disappear,

With a snap of his fingers.

He doesn’t magically make me happy again.

Instead,

He tells me that he understands –

My mood swings and my messy mind.

He tells me that my world is not falling apart,

That my future is safe in his hands.

And all that I need to do at this very moment –

Is simply breathe and only breathe.

For tomorrow will be a new day,

And I can start, all over again.

I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul.
