I don’t think I am clinically depressed. I’ve promised to be transparent, so the truth is that today is a “down” day. I don’t know why. I had a fun morning fishing with my good friend and his kids. Maybe it is that I am fasting. Maybe it is because I spend 2 hours this afternoon going through medical bills and insurance statements. Maybe it is just the natural ebb and flow of emotions – I was up on Friday, now down on Saturday.
And this is how God works. As I am writing this, an old friend called to check on me, laugh with me, and pray for me in a way I could not pray for myself today.
I have no answers. Depression really is a mystery to me.
I feel so much better after Greg’s call and prayer. God is always good.
