DEPRESSION~~~Like Walking Through a Tunnel

Imagine this…
Walking through a tunnel…
with nothing in sight.
Feeling for a way out…
but only darkness, no light.
And the tunnel is endless…
as you continually fumble around.
Trying to find a way out…
but no opening is found.

No door or no window…
just pitch dark black.
And you have to keep moving…
there’s just no going back.
For your entrance is blocked…
and that door permanently closed.
But total darkness now surrounds you…
and no one really knows.

For your thoughts seem to drown you…
continually pouring into your mind.
How did you get in total darkness…
and is there a way out you’ll find?
Will a door finally open?
Will a glimmer of Light come through?
Is there a way out of this darkness…
as you wonder what you can do?

And everything you try…
seems to be a “dead-end”.
As no doors will open…
and the darkness never seems to end.
Now this is how it feels…
when depression overwhelms you.
It feels like you are drowning…
and there’s nothing you can do!

You keep trying to get out…
but seem to be losing the fight…
as you keep feeling for an opening…
but there’s no end in sight.
The tunnel is so long and dark…
and seems to spiral down.
And it’s at this point of darkness…
that desperation is found.

So please have some compassion…
for those who are in need.
Cause depression is serious…
and leads many to drastic deeds.
For I understand this tunnel…
as I have walked it before.
And I praise God above…
for finally opening a door.

Dear Lord, I thank You for opening doors for those oppressed and depressed by circumstances surrounding them. Let Your Light shine into their darkness. Set them free from the darkness of their past and help them to walk into their futures with You leading the way. Give them hope for their futures for Your Word says in Jeremiah 29:11, “for I know the plans that I have for you… plans for good, not for harm… to give you a future and a hope”.  Give them Hope Lord that can only come from you and pull them out of the darkness and into Your Light… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  1. You’re livin in your own Private Idaho. Idaho.
    You’re out of control, the rivers that roll,
    you fell into the water and down to Idaho.
    Get out of that state,
    get out of that state you’re in.
    You better beware.

    Keep off the path, beware of the gate,
    watch out for signs that say “hidden driveways”.
    Don’t let the chlorine in your eyes
    blind you to the awful surprise
    that’s waitin’ for you at
    the bottom of the bottomless blue blue blue pool.

  2. Many suffer in this way. Few every truly make it out, why? Because they fear the label, they fear the kiddy gloves that people will inadvertently handle them with, they fear the past and falling again.

    Your post is inspiring, many do not understand. It is a simple look held behind there smile that cries out for understanding, why can’t people see it? The ignorance of our world irritates me.

    You have gained a new follower in me, and through this one simple post earned my respect.

    • Thank you so much for your support and for following me. Too many do not understand and so many do not even care. I pray that God will bring healing and deliverance to the depressed and bring compassion and empathy to all others. God bless you!

    • Praying for you now…May God bless you!

      Dear Lord, You see the pain that my sister Kathy is in and the darkness that surrounds her. Lift the weight of the world off of her shoulders and yoke up with her for Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. Let Her feel You Presence with Your Peace that surpasses all understanding. Touch her heart, soul and spirit and draw her near to You with healing and restoration… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
