There are days where I join battle with my ABBA, using each and every tool He has given me against the disease of Depression.
I don't want to forget either.
He has brought me from the bottom of nothingness - to Him. He has filled me within, throughout, every bit of me. No longer do I feel the aloneness every moment, but there are times I feel the heaviness and hardness of life pressing in on me. The fingers of "nothingness" trying to grab hold of me and pull me down.
He has taught me this is when I need to fall down on my knees before Him. My head in His Lap, His Word coming from within my heart and drowning out the lies of doubt, which are trying to pull me under the waters of life.
He has and is showing me, we must be stripped bare, down to nothing, to become all He has made "us" to be. He must dress "us" in His Truths, so when we look into His mirror, it is His Beloved we are seeing, not the destructive view of "self" or others.
He has taught me His Standards are what we need to desire to live our life by. His unconditional Love is what we need to sink our feet into, curling our toes up and gripping in hard. He is our Hope when all feels hopeless. He will transform our life, our whole being, into His Treasure. If we choose to let Him.
He needs to be our Rock. our bestest friend. our Love.
