Depression Advice

The best way to recover from sorrow, depression, and anger is to simply de-clutter your life. Remove anxieties, re-define your life, and re-build your confidence by removing the offence that take away your ability to recover. Loss of a loved one, divorce, and abuse are difficult to relinquish. But allowing God the freedom to help us through our struggles will provide all that’s needed to recover, embrace, and re-build the future.

“Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard” (Isaiah 58:8)


Simplify your life.
Clean up the clutter.
Empty out the shed.
Sweep out the gutter.

Just vacuum away
all hidden debris.
Wash off the surface,
and then all can see.

Just clean it all out;
there’s no need to wait.
Just box it all up
in that old, black crate.

Time to d-clutter;
and it’s not too tough.
Take time to discard
all that very old stuff.

And haul it away,
or leave at the street;
so after trash day,
everything is left neat.

Then, take time to shop,
for things now and then.
And put treasures back
where clutter had been.
