It seems that depression for me is something that is always there but just swells up and down like the tide along a lake. Loneliness is also its companion. I just could not stop thinking of many of the laments of David in the Psalms and elsewhere. He was let down by so many and felt abandon even by God…Psalm 13. The fact that you feel this way tells me that you long for what is right but are stuck in the mud of this fallen world. I feel for you and pray. In this life, as believers we have one foot in this world and one in the next. We go through many dark valleys but eventually all this will end…
All we can do is give it to God (Philippians 4:6-13)..
Wonderful, in a world we live in there are many sunken into depressions, aggravated by medical ‘treatments’ ; many even resorting to suicide.
It is a alarming trend, if people would just turn to the Lord, our great GOD.
“Dear friends, don’t regard as strange the fiery ordeal occurring among you to test you, as if something extraordinary were happening to you. Rather, to the extent that you share the fellowship of the Messiah’s sufferings, rejoice; so that you will rejoice even more when his Sh’khinah is revealed.”
1 Kefa (1 Pe) 4:12-13 CJB
