Depression can Run you Over by Pastor Ed Young
We begin to sink into it. We sink lower and lower and lower. But the good news is that God always provides a mangrove root. He always provides a way of escape. Elijah asked God to take his life that he was not better than his ancestors. Self-pity also has a way of kind of diluting the good that we are doing. Have you ever been involved in that? I have felt sorry for myself before. I think that it is not really worth it, that I am not making a dent, a difference. I am the only person doing this. There is no other single parent facing what I am facing. There is no business going through what my business is going through. Have you ever felt this way? Hey, that is not true. It is a bunch of lies that will cause you to get depressed. There are many causes of depression but I just wanted to emphasize four.
Now, let’s look at the cure for depression. I want to ask you this question. How many of you have driven a bus? How many of you have been certified and licensed to drive a bus? Do we have any bus drivers here? We have some. If you drive a bus, I know one thing you need to do. I don’t know how to drive a bus, but I know this. If you come up to a train track you need to do three things: stop, look and listen. Let’s say it. Stop, look and listen. I like that.
One more time. Stop, look and listen. If you don’t do that, one day a train could run you over. If you are depressed and if you don’t stop, look and listen, depression can run you over.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Second Baptist
