244. The Storms of Life

We thought the calm and peaceful days would never end, but suddenly came a wintry blast that chilled us to the bone – in the guise of a lost job, a child taken in the bloom of life, a spouse who developed a wandering eye, a diagnosis of terminal cancer.

Take heart. God sees your troubles and will keep you close to Him so you are not strained to the point of breaking. That is His promise. And from even the lowest depths of your affliction, He will restore your life again, either in this world or the next.

“Though the winds may blow and the storms may come, yet my heart beats warm with the love of God.”

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.

    Reminds me of a statement my dad would say, ” The same winds hit all men; the difference is how you set your sails.”
