Disappointment + Disillusionment + Disconnection = Depression

by Tracey Metzger

There is a way it’s supposed to be.

Parents are supposed to stay together.

Spouses are supposed to love you forever.

Friends are supposed to be loyal.

Children are supposed to outlive their parents.

Families are supposed to support each other.

When it doesn’t work out that way…

Disappointment leads to Disillusionment.

We can become Disconnected and Depressed.

Disconnecting from the pain doesn’t make it go away.

Jesus came to heal and redeem ALL that is broken.

It takes courage to allow oneself to feel the pain.

But is the only way to heal.

Bring Him the hurts.

Be set free.

Romans 8:18, Pain, Joy
