Time to Stop Circling the Wilderness

Suffering from depression is like stumbing around in familiar territory.
Just as you catch a glimpse of an exit, you take a wrong turn and 'round and 'round you go.

In her teaching on Deuteronomy 2 'Turning North' Lysa TerKeurst wrote, "He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear".

I find enormous comfort in this revelation. After their exodus from Egypt, the Israelites found themselves wandering the desert for 40 years. They must've felt hopelessly lost most of the time, but God always gives you a way out. For them, it was Moses. For me, there are numerous healthier options.
