There are days in which the very fiber that you are made of seems stretched beyond any reasonable ability to hold it together. Sometimes those days turn into weeks, months and even years. Such were the days for me when I trudged through severe depression. I look back at that experience now and I have no idea how I made it through. The truth is that “I” didn’t make it through – “We” did. God took me by the hand and we made it through my depression together. I would have never guessed, at the time, that there would ever come a day that I would feel that the pain and suffering was worth it. Yet, here I am and it was. I won’t take the time to go into detail but there is a level of understanding, compassion and passion that I never could have obtained without that experience. When you are having those experiences in your life – don’t try to go it alone. God is there to help you. And know that, in the end, you will find the David within you and you will be better for it.
You may think of yourself as one unit. In reality, you are a combination of your spirit and your body. In some way that I do not yet understand, our spirit and body is united while we remain alive in mortality. When I left my body during my near-death experience, my spirit remained very much alive. The part of me that feels and has emotions and thoughts is my spirit. I know that our spirits are immortal. We were given personal power by our creator before this world ever was. We continue to have that personal power. We have the power to choose, to learn, to rise above our difficulties and weaknesses! However, we must make a conscious choice to understand and to exercise our personal power. I hope you will use your personal power to make this world a better place! That is my personal goal! Our personal power is a priceless gift from God! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
