pouring-concrete-in-foundation-footings2The bouts of depression I’ve had included a symptom, that–unless you’ve been through it–seems unrealistic. I call it, “heavy feet.” In the mornings, I’d wake up with what seemed like concrete poured around my feet. There was such a heavy weight in them that the prospect of trying to put them to the floor was enough reason to stay in bed. Knowing this, before I’d go to bed every night, I’d pray, “God, please help my feet make it to the floor tomorrow to take one step.” Yes, depressed people (who aspire to heal) have to pray for the smallest of things–like one literal step. But having small goals like that ARE enough victory to not give up. The movie “What About Bob” actually had a lot of truth when Bob got the psychiatric advice to take “baby steps” for healing. For the depressed-in-healing, the “present” can simply be waking up each day, putting feet to the floor & taking a step. But you can do it. God is the God of your grandest achievements…but also your smallest steps. Don’t let heavy feet hold you back from walking forward on them.
