Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.  A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.”  Psalm 90:2,4 

Dear Jesus, My short life is like a fading breath on a chilly morning compared to you.  You are before all things, after all things and around all things.  You see everything everywhere all the time.  You know every detail and forget nothing.  You never have a senior moment.  I am a frail and insignificant being.  And yet, you have chosen to love me by sacrificing your own dear Son for me.  I wasn’t just lost.  I was an enemy of yours from birth.  You redeemed me and welcomed me into your grace.  Of all people, I don’t deserve to be at your party.  But I’m here!  Lord of my soul, walk with me and hover over me this small day and make my life a blessing to you after all you have done to make it count.  Amen. 

The spiritual medicine for depression is a return to your roots to be reminded how fortunate you are to be loved by God.
