2.7.2022 – The battles we face in the changing of the seasons…

I’ll be honest… it seems I’ve been facing a battle within the place of my time of communion with the Lord.

God has been reminding me from time to time, over the last couple of years, of these memories with Him (that I had forgotten until I found the old home videos).

The other week I slipped into an intense state of anxiety… And then after a little while of getting completely wound up in that I realized I had finally spiraled down into depression.
