This Too Shall Pass

I asked three people to pray for me. This is not something that I would normally do but I did. There are two tough months that I face each year and this is one of them; the other is February but maybe that’s related more to the fact that it’s my birthday month and there’s Valentine’s Day which is difficult when you’re single or separated. This time of the year it’s because I’m usually overwhelmed with work and/or academics (this year it’s both!) and because of the shorter periods of sunlight which my body has a hard time adjusting to. I suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) but usually go into denial and suffer silently. This year though I refuse to be in denial and I am openly admitting that I’m entering my “slump”.

Now more than ever I have to hang tight to my faith and trust in God with the assurance that he will see me through this. And a good dose of friends who care and who will hold me accountable can’t hurt either.


“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.” (Romans 8:26)
