The world spins. The sun rises and sets. I go out and come home. I sit and I stand. Depression hovers below the surface. I look out from inside me and see worthlessness in much that I do. Vanity, all is vanity. What matters it that time goes by? Why should I care?
Yet I do care.

I study friends. The way they act. Why they do what they do. Confusion reigns. Their actions leave me with strange interpretations. The depression is rising. I lie awake and wonder. What goes on with those I know? Why should I care?
Yet I do care.

I spend my time. Some wisely, some foolishly. I run, I walk, I play, I read. Yet it profits me little. I talk and say nothing. I sing and feel no rythum. Life goes on around me, yet I remain static. Why should I care?
Yet I do care.

The sun is failing to brighten my day. Happiness eludes me. I wallow in my self-pity. I feel it bringing me down. I must fight it. I must look to the only One who can release me from this exhaustion. Why should He care?
Yet He does care.


You should read Ecclesiastes.

You should read Ecclesiastes. Smile

Yes

I was much thinking of Ecclesiastes when I wrote this. Tongue

That book...

Phillip Yancey called Ecclesiastes an advanced stage of boredom. He might not be too far wrong. Tongue

:hugs: We should Skype some time.

Does Jesus care when my heart is pained
Too deeply for mirth or song,
As the burdens press, and the cares distress
And the way grows weary and long?

Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares.

Does Jesus care when my way is dark
With a nameless dread and fear?
As the daylight fades into deep night shades,
Does He care enough to be near?

Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares.

That's one of my favorite

That's one of my favorite hymns. It's gotten me through many hard times.

Praying for you, Carrie!
