Wow, it's been a minute... Trip Lee, Lampmode, Flame news...

Sometimes, I come to my Blog and get ready to post, however, I then proceed to lose interest. This is the general feeling I been having lately, with almost everything I do. I call these times seasons of calamity, or depression. Whatever you prefer, it really doesn't matter to me, I have struggled with this for the majority of my life. As a Christian, Jesus has helped me through His Word, to set my mind on things from above, and the Scriptures have honestly helped me when I struggle. But never the less, I continue to struggle. I have accepted this as a thorn, I have read about many men of the faith, that I respect, such as Charles Spurgeon to name one, that had deep bouts with depression.

Depression is difficult to understand especially if you don't struggle with it. It's roots are stem from historical events, and of course sin. I can honestly say that my depression for the most part deals with a great portion of pride and selfishness. I fall into this pity party, though I don't communicate this, I know this. Hopelessness overtakes me, and I tend not to see the great things of this life and the wonderful splendor of my LORD. I forget about the blessings and gifts He has graced upon me, such as my salvation, my wife, my children, my family, and everything else.

I have heard many say that if I struggle with depression, how is it that I can be saved. That to me is such an ignorant comment or ideology. I know many Christians who have diseases, hardships, struggles and difficulties, what makes depression different than these ailments? It's not different, it's just different, if that makes any sense. I don't blame anyone, not even the Devil, though I know his plans are to destroy me, I look at this struggle as something the Lord has allowed for a purpose, and the fact is that I may struggle with this for the rest of my life, and thats ok. The reason I say it's ok, it's simple, God is God, He is Sovereign, all powerful, and who He is is not contingent on who I am or struggle with, I am a mere man, and in essence His creation, therefore, inferior. I have no issues with that, I have been graced with the opportunity to live and die, and ultimately reside with Him forever.

This is my life.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
