An Analogy: Dark Sunglasses and Depression

As I was reminiscing today about my struggles with depression, I remembered the day that I wrote this. I was seeing everything so dark and dreary… then realized that I had dark sunglasses on that was distorting my view. That is exactly what depression does to many… make everything seem dark. I pray that God’s Light will shine into the darkness that surrounds so many of us in various periods of our lives.

As I was traveling today,
with dark sunglasses on…
I realized what seemed real,
was actually so wrong.

For the whole world seemed dreary,
under darkened skies…
But it was only distorted,
by the glasses covering my eyes.

And that is what depression
causes to so many of us…
everything’s dark and dreary,
with unhappiness and disgust.

But when our depression lifts,
and our vision finally clears…
then the darkness is gone…
and even most of our fears.

So dark sunglasses and depression…
they both distort our sight.
And when both are removed…
we will see everything is bright.

So let go of the darkness…
and look toward the Light!!
For God is the Key…
to clearing all our sight.

John 12:46, “I have come into the world as a light,

so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”

Dear Lord, only You see the multitude of us who have experienced struggles with depression. You see the wounds that have been inflicted upon us that brought us to the point of brokenness in our lives.  I pray that Your Light will shine into the dark places of our lives with total healing and restoration for all who have been broken by the abuses in this world… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
