1. I love that book. I read it, oh, maybe 25 or so years ago and want to reread it some time.

    I so need to remind myself of these things. I sometimes feel myself the victim of my thoughts (especially anxious ones) instead of remembering I am supposed to “bring every thought into captivity.”

    Thanks for that link about anxiety — I’ve bookmarked it.

    So glad you were able to participate again!

  2. Amy, what helpful excerpts and thoughts you have posted. I read Spiritual Depression a long time ago in order to understand someone else, but it ended up helping me a lot….but I think I could use a refresher. I love the Piper quote and will have to meditate further on the articles linked. Thanks!!

  3. Oh, I’ve seen that first sentence in your quote before, and it’s so very true. Just that one sentence is one that’s come back to me often and had an effect when I’m “slumping.” Thanks so much for this post.

  4. I’m almost finished with this book…I have to put it down and chew on things periodically cuz it’s SO FULL of good stuffs. Glad you are enjoying it too!!

  5. Wow! I just left a note on Barbara’s blog about THIS VERY THING. And then I click over here and find it. I love how God works through repetition. 🙂 So I just started Spiritual Depression over the weekend too, and want to take it slowly. I’ve heard so much about it through the years. I’ll look forward to what you’ll share from it.

  6. Some really good quotes. I’ll have to put Spiritual Depression on my “to read” list since I could really relate to that quote. Some of my worst spiritual battles in my mind occur in the first couple of hours after waking.
