THE END OF OUR SELF SUFFICIENCY
The secret of knowing God’s complete sufficiency is in coming to an end of everything in ourselves and our circumstances…stop seeking sympathy for our difficult situations…it is a necessary condition for blessings…then we will turn from our circumstance to God.
– Streams in the Desert, April 8
I copied this entry in my journal in 2010, the year my depression lifted. Mental and emotional distress, hopelessness, anxiety, and an overarching fear drove me to realize my life was not in my own hands and never had been. It was the beginning of my healing when I turned from my circumstances to God.
