“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” –Lao Tzu

Sister: Singing……… 
I am glad I’m going to heaven 2x Praise the Lord who took my sins away to qualify,
I am glad I am going to heaven.
Good Afternoon Aunty !!!

Aunty: Welcome my daughter, God bless you, this few days I have noticed that everytime you are always to yourself, anything wrong and again your songs is only going to heaven, you don’t interact with anybody again, you don’t even go to fellowship as before, you will only lock yourself up and be crying and singing you are going to heaven, sure JESUS CHRIST is coming soon and we all are going to heaven. My daughter you cannot live in isolation you don’t talk to people, no friend visit you, you always look morose and depress and your dress sense is poor, if Jesus tarries are you not going to get married, my daughter let me tell you if you don’t change nobody will look at your side, look at what you turned yourself to many times you look so dirty and unkept,

Sister:. Have you finished, thank you ma. can I go.

Aunty:. My daughter, please talk to me what you’re experiencing is called DEPRESSION and is dangerous you need to come out of it otherwise it could lead to suicidal thoughts.

Sister:. DEPRESSION God forbid !!!

Aunty:. Yes DEPRESSION !!!

Sister:. No ma, my challenges is that I have many unanswered questions. I Am so confused about my life I don’t know whom to turn to, nobody understands me, I am tired, my parents, my friends are pressurizing me on many issues of lives, that is why I withdraw to my self; In fact ma, I prefer going to heaven than living on earth,

She busted into tears, crying uncontrollable.

Aunty:. My dearest darling, God is thinking about you your problem is self righteousness, you need to trust JESUS CHRIST for all things and cheers up; He will take good care of you and you have to open up to some of your faithful friends, you cannot be an island you need other people around you, 
STOP WORRYING ! START TRUSTING IN JESUS AND BE READY TO DO THE WILL OF GOD.

Matthew 6:25-27, 31, 33-34 
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Note:
Don’t withdraw in the face of challenges, stay with God stay with your friends and family members, talk and walk out of every challenges, praying and singing praises to God.
