Today's Readings (May 30) which can be read HERE seem to epitomize the state of mind one must have in order to truly seek wellness. The first and second readings are both from Psalms. We can see in these readings the crying out to God for help but the crying out is not that of a lamentation. Rather, it is spoken by one who believes that God will fulfill these things asked for. And why do we have this joy that our needs will be fulfilled a hundred-fold? It is answered in the Gospel reading when Jesus says: For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.
When you ask for help from the Lord, do not do so in a state of despair. He does not want us to despair. Ask Him to help you with a spirit of knowing that HE WILL FULFILL these things for you. We all know that when one is suffering from depression, it is possible to feel joy in the heart just as a person who grieves the loss of someone dear can also smile at something pleasant, albeit briefly. Be as joyful as you can because all has been fulfilled within His plan.
