New Verse!

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
Psalm 40:2
I have found a new "now" verse. I know a lot of people who have life verses, but I like to have a now verse. I was recently introduced to this verse by a very good friend. As soon as I heard it I knew it would be something I would dwell on for a long time. I have been living with depression for a while. I try to describe it to people and it is very hard unless they have experienced it for themselves. I think this verse very accurately describes how I feel sometimes. You are just stuck in a pit. You tend to get it on others you come in contact with on a daily basis, just like the mud in this verse. Know matter what you try it just seems to linger on your mind.
No matter what we have done so far, we need to make a choice what we are going to do next. If we are unhappy about something we need to make a change or move on. We can't let yesterday's failure take away what we may have today.
I love to visualize God as a rock. They are so strong and beautiful. Right now I am on a mission to find the perfect rock to take a picture of my feet on, so I can put it on my wall. I will put this verse with the picture, so I will never forget where to place myself.
There is much more I want to say about depression. It is something I am working on daily. I am not sure it will ever go away completely, but I will get better each and every day. Even something small is better than nothing at all!

P.S. One of the things I love to do to lift my spirits is to look for beauty in nature and take pictures!
