Anyone else have childhood memories of watching the comedy variety show Hee Haw? Their silly song ‘Gloom, despair and agony on me-e! Deep dark depression, excessive misery-y,’ was meant to be funny. And it was. However, it resonated with my young heart and spirit on a deeper level; already, from that young age, a shadowy melancholy plagued my quality of life and threatened my necessary daily functioning. How does one conquer deepening internal blackness? For me, it has only been through faith in the Lord that my soul is able to challenge the untruths forecast by the darkness.
