Depression is a clear sign that your soul is in darkness, it’s starving and crying out in pain. This problem in the soul cripples the body and stops you from moving forward in life. It doesn’t allow you to be a proper mom, wife, husband or father.
The scripture states: “The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light…” (Matthew 4:16) Perhaps, this is your situation: you just want to be alone, you hate the thought of socializing even with family. You don’t have the strength to put your affairs in order and it’s all because of the emptiness that you feel inside.
Your soul is empty and is being pressed by problems coming at you from all angles. Due to these problems you face, you are consumed by a worry and fear that goes right to your soul and crushes it. This depression can also be triggered by loss.
It starts with you crying yourself to sleep but if not treated, can end in suicidal tendencies.
The good news is, God can do both – He can solve your material and physical problems as well as heal the depressed soul.
You who have been sitting in darkness, who have been suffering with depression, it’s time to see the light – the Light of God which can set you free from those negative feelings.
Depression can be defeated. It’s time to end depression and begin living.
