Verse of the Day – Psalm 57:4-5

Psalm 57:4-5

Psalm 57:4-5

After the news that another icon and inspiration of many teenagers and young adults, maybe finally the world will start to wake up and see that suicide, depression and metal illness are real, very real, not something we should just be brushing under the carpet.

In my lowest moment, I was close to taking my own life, this was the most painful moment of my life, my mind tortured me, telling me I was worthless.  Fortunately for me, I heard the word of God in that moment, He told me I was needed by the very people I felt would be better off without me, I was lucky, I put down the knife and searched for help, I found the people who would lead me to a life with God.

So tonight I pray for all those who are struggling, all those who feel alone and lost, I pray they hear the same voice that I heard.

I’ve chose this song, not only because it is by Chester Bennington and Linkin Park, but it is a message of hope to those struggling, to hold on.

IRIDESCENT by LINKIN PARK
When you were standing in the wake of devastation
When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown
And with the cataclysm raining down
Insides crying, “Save me now!”
You were there, impossibly alone

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure’s all you’ve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

And in a burst of light that blinded every angel
As if the sky had blown the heavens into stars
You felt the gravity of tempered grace
Falling into empty space
No one there to catch you in their arms

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure’s all you’ve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure’s all you’ve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure’s all you’ve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

 

Back In The Stride, Well Sort Of!!!

Despite an inner battle when my alarm went off at 5am, I almost gave in, turned it off and went back to sleep, but after a battle of a few minutes, I managed to drag myself out of my pit and get dressed.  Finally for the first time since New Year I got myself out to see the sunrise.

I’m glad I did, I managed to catch the sunrise at the lake, which was a delight to see, then I continued on up the cycle track for a great eight mile walk.

My coordination issues continued, I found that if I turned my head to the left whilst walking, my feet made me drift off to the right, if I looked right, it felt like I was walking on loose rocks, I couldn’t find my footing, if I looked left then right, it was like I was trying to do Riverdance, but very badly.  I actually find it quite funny now, I found myself amused by it all, rather than stressed by it, I think that’s a good sign, my quirky/weird sense of humour seems to have returned, big time.

Although I found it all amusing this morning, I did have a few issues with it all later in the morning, but more on that later.  For now I will share this morning’s sunrise with you all.
