207. Put Boundaries on Fear

Fear is the ultimate condition that emboldens the lies of the world and the darkness within our souls. “I’m all alone and there is no one to help me.” “This upcoming terrible thing will put me under, and there is nothing I can do to stop it.” “It seems the world is against me again.” “God has left me alone; He doesn’t love me.”

If such fears threaten to drive you into depression, shout “Stop!” as loud as you can, shutting the door of your soul to fear and putting boundaries around it. The antidote to depression is God’s presence. He has said that He will never leave us or forsake us. The Bible is full of verses on fear, and they are all the same: look to God for deliverance, trust Him, and love Him as He loves us.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
