【君言才思】面對心情低落

 

"你們要靠主常常喜樂。我再說,你們要喜樂。當叫眾人知道你們謙讓的心。主已經近了。"(腓立比書四:4、5)

忙碌的生活易令人疲累、煩躁、憂心!個人、家庭、工作,甚或社會及經濟種種問題與壓力,更使人困擾,心情低落與悲憤不滿!

上述的經文,提供了一些面對低落不安之道:

*靠主喜樂—英國民調機構 Yougov 在 2015 年十一月至十二月間,以 "你認為世界在變好,還是變差,抑或兩者皆非?" 作為調查題目,向 17 個國家的 1 萬 8 千 2 百名網民調查。結果發現最樂觀的是中國人,超過四成的人認為世界變好;最悲觀的則是法國人和香港人,分別有超過八成及七成的人感到世界在變差!Yougov 分析:人均生產總值對樂觀程度影響不大;中國受訪網民的樂觀指數較其他國家為高,或許與國家崛起,並人民健康的提升尤關。樂觀與否,原來與身處的環境、際遇、健康有關!事實上不少人的喜樂,也是建基於這些。

然而,靠主喜樂,原文 "靠主" 是 "在主裏" 之意。惟有肯親近主,藉禱告,進到主裏面,才可有真正的喜樂;人不能有喜樂,只能有情緒的起起落落,因為建基於外在的境遇!約伯在受苦時,遭家破人亡之初期,仍能說出:"賞賜是耶和華,收取也是耶和華,耶和華是應當稱頌的",皆因他堅心仰賴神、緊密地倚靠主之故。中期他有掙扎,至後期他才發覺自己早期只是風聞神,至終才親身經歷、親眼看見神,並與神有更緊密的關係,且活在神裏面。他才明白神的作為更多、更清晰,及更有力量與喜樂!多年前,Spafford 斯柏福因生意失敗,隻身到北美,而將妻兒送返英國。一埸不測的風暴把妻兒所乘的船隻打沉,四個孩子葬身大海!但他靠主,在主裏得安慰、得安穩與力量,並靠主有喜樂,寫出:"憂傷來似浪滾...我心靈得安寧" 的歌曲詞句!

* 謙讓—有退讓、謙遜不爭,寧可讓步之意。一切煩惱皆因強出頭,不謙讓、太執着。有時為一口氣,有時為面子而不肯謙讓。其實是因自我中心之故。於 1986 年,有二艘船在黑海相撞,數百名乘客因此掉入冰冷的海中而罹難。事後調查顯示此次慘劇,是由於人為的固執己見、不肯退讓而造成!二位船長都知道對方船隻的位置,卻因互不相讓、不改航道,仍堅執不屈直駛;及至意識到不退讓的錯誤與後果時,已為時太晚了!真的,退一步是海濶天空。倘能轉一個角度來看事物、來看世情、來看問題及人物,相信感受會有所不同、心情也不一樣,喜樂也會出現!而在人際關係及教會之事奉配搭上,更需謙讓,大家才會暢快。

* 儆醒候主再來— "主已經近了" 意思是 "主快再來了"。一切也必成過去,甚麼得失、賺蝕、對錯,到那天,在主基督的審判台前自有分曉;人要交賬,神必為你討個明白與公道!所以目前人生之苦楚及不公,乃是至暫至輕,相對於將來永恆貴重無比的榮耀,就算不得甚麽了。這種觀念,使人豁達、不執着,能放鬆、放手,—切交託主與倚靠神,也得着心靈的釋放與喜樂!再者,要儆醒,預備主的再來!多年前一本暢銷小說《末日迷踪》,描寫主再來時,不少人被提,全城空空的,只剩下一些人.....主必再來,此是喜樂的盼望,也是危機感與末世意識,策勵人將優先次序要放在永恆、屬天不朽壞的事上。

各位朋友,讓我們在困惑、不安、低落之時,掌握到得力及喜樂的秘訣!
