I can’t believe I was going to let a little thing like death get in my way of having a life, but I did, it was winning… the cords of death were around my neck, and the talons of depression were sharply dug into my soul
until God made me really alive –
and now my sorrow has been turned into joy!
Psalm 88:8 altered tense, “I was confined and could not escape;”
Psalm 88:15 “from my youth”
Psalm 88:18 “..the darkness was my closest friend”
Thank you Lord for the past tense.
And introducing the black dragon of death, the image of my depression, whom God has released me from when I followed the rule of… “Submit to God.” ~James
