I struggle with depression and as a Christian sometimes I am ashamed of that.  I am looking for people out there to encourage and people who would encourage me.

Dear Sarah, 

I am so sorry to hear about your Grandma, my Grandma passed away at the end of the year and she was like a mother to me, unfortunately I was not able to go back to UK to say Goodbye. I pray you can enjoy this final week with her and say goodbye and may her legacy and inspiration live on in your life! Make sure you take time to grieve, it is important, so we don't bottle things up! I am sorry about the relationship, that is never easy, I pray God will give you guidance and wisdom in how to deal with that and how to also take time to heal from the pain, I pray he will truly uproot any lies and give you his precious truth and promises concerning who you are to Him! 

I understand that feeling of things going from bad to worse and issues after issue. I pray God will give you strength to get through each thing, I pray you will come to Him and give him all of your burdens, he wants to tale them, he doesn't want you to carry them, he wants to give you his peace and comfort! I know things are easier said then done, I pray as you drawer closer to Him during this time you will find a peace and comfort that can only truly come from Him. Remember he has not forgotten you and he promises to never leave nor forsake you! I am praying for you and I know he will make a way!

God Bless you 

Lindsay.

Praise Report!!
Thank you all for praying and reaching out!
I was focusing on my troubles and not my Savior. I switched that around and started worshiping Our Mighty Lord And Savior.
He turned my worries to worship! Stay tuned.. He is an work.. I'll keep you posted on what He has done.

67talbot. I am so sorry to hear about those things and I know how it feels when you have those days and and you do REALLY feel it. Because yes there is so many trials and things we go through as times and it does get very overwhelming! I really pray you know and feel like you can give it all to your Father-God and know that he does take all our burdens. I know its easier said then done, sometimes I literally have to sit there and take each thing on my heart and hand it to him and allow him to take my pain, anguish, burdens and take HIS perfect peace! We are all a mess, I admire you for acknowledging that, I pray you will declare that HIS power will be made perfect in your weakness (your mess). Praying for you!! Keep holding on!!

Thank you guys for joining and sharing. I understand that feeling of God why me and how can you use me through all this! I am sorry to hear what happened and honestly as believers a lot of the time we do not know why certain things happen. However I would like to encourage you and let you know, nothing can separate you from His amazing love!!!! The more I read the word the more I am encouraged at how God uses people. He uses brokenness, he uses pain, he uses suffering, he uses weakness. I know the world does not always operate like that and sometimes we don't want to hear that. I really pray you will know that GOD has an amazing plan, even though we don't know why things happen. BUT even in your brokenness and pain he can and will use your life. I pray you will give Him the pieces to put back together. Having struggled with depression from a very young age also, over the years I have really seen that His power is made perfect in weakness. I pray as you draw close to Him, he will heal and touch every part of your life. Also I pray you know He has so many incredible things in store for you. I am praying for you!

I was dignoesed with depression in the 8th grade. And I'm 23 now. And I'm still learning how to cope with it. I also PTSD from when I was raped in 2010. I ask God everyday why me.

Fighting depression and PTSD make me unsure how God can use me.  

Comment by Mildred Mas on February 2, 2013 at 5:27am

I am truly blessed by God because I was on three or four medications for depression and the Lord got me off all of them. I was always sick from the pills I could not eat I was always walking around spaced out. I felt nothing. The God I serve is such an Awesome God a good God a mighty God. He is faithful to his word and promises. He says in Psalm 37:4 Delight your self in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Ask you you shall receive knock and the door will be opened. Our God is Faithful we must trust him.
