Cry of a depressed heart



Why do I feel alone? Why do I feel sad? Why is my heart heavy, burdened, and crying out of depression? My life lost all its purpose. It's a boat tossed in a stormy night without an anchor to hold. It stands like a withered tree. I only breathe sorrow. I drink my own tears. Will my heart ever find peace or will it ever get even closer to it? There are so many around me. Many of them are my friends. I have known them for a long time. But none know me. None understand me. They are busy. They have priorities. They have goals and purposes. I have none. I am wasting my life. Why am I an exception? Will I ever become like them? 

I love my God. But He is far away. He stopped listening to me a long time ago. I left him when I landed in my misery. I wish I had a mediator between me and my God. I always put on a mask of smile and cry inside my mask. My body aches. I want to find some rest physically and emotionally. I have no interest in food. My time passes best in loneliness. I do not want to speak to any. Some hate me and some feel pity about my life. Will I ever be accepted and understood? Is there anyone who can wipe away my tears shed in loneliness? My search for hope continues from sunrise to sunset. I will not stop till I find it. 

I can't pray. I can't seek the Lord. Because my mind wavers. One thing I do. I will lift up my voice and cry out to Jesus who said, "A broken reed, He will not break; And a dimly burning wick, He will not extinguish. He will faithfully bring forth justice." - Isaiah 42:3. I am a broken reed. I have a dimly burning wick about to be burned out. I need justice. I need help. I know I have a God who empathizes with me. He understands my heart. He will never leave me nor forsake me. He is God who cared for the sick. He is the friend of sinners. He came to gather the lost like me. Lord, come closer to me. Please do not leave me alone. You are my hope. You are the only one I can trust. 

Oh, let the mountains move, let the hills be displaced, yet my Lord will not break His love for me (Isaiah 54:10).  One thing I will do. I remember all the miracles He has made. I think about it day and night. Will He not do the same for me? He commanded the storm to be quiet and they become quiet in a minute. Will He command my life's storms to stop? Why am I so sad, when I have a savior? Why should I carry all my life's burdens when my Lord has carried everything for me? My help comes from the Lord, who created heaven and earth. He will not let my foot slip. He who watches overcome will never slumber. The Lord will watch over me forever and ever. 

My life will change. Jesus will make everything new for me. My withered life will bloom. New life will come to my bones. I will stand once again. I will fly like an eagle. Not by my power but through the power of my savior. He will lead me to green pastures. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life. 

My Lord has a plan for me. Plans to prosper me and to give me hope and a future. My heart starts longing for Him. I believe in Him. I want to know more about Him. Jesus, my savior, my Lord. One day my own eyes will see Him.
