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.

Hi Sheri, 

How are you? I understand what your saying about feeling ashamed, however I do pray you will not allow Satan to have that foot hold, that is what he would love for us to feel so that way we keep it to our self and not share with God and others. However I am grateful that we have an amazing father who loves us unconditionally and wants to know everything we are going through. Over the years I have learnt to come to him and tell him how I feel and leave it with him, as Jesus said my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Sometimes we carry things that we are not meant to carry, but to leave them with God. I know not everyone understands, but he does!! I also pray he will bring people into your life who will be Iron Sharpening Iron who will stand and pray with you! 

Depression at times can seem so overwhelming and intense, but I thank God that he is greater than it all and he paid the price even for depression! I pray today you will not feel ashamed or alone, but you will come to him and find rest in him! I pray he will continue to take your pain and ashes and give you beauty and Joy!!! May you never forget his amazing love for you and may he pour out his Hope today!

Praying for you!

Lindsay,

I am very sad tonight and feeling like no one cares.  I have had a really rough day at work and I am emotionally fried.

Hello Sheri, 

 

I am so sorry to hear this and sorry you feel this way. I do understand what you are saying, so many times the weight of this world, work, issues, finances, illness, etc can really get to us. However I do pray right now what ever has happened today, whatever you have gone through today and what ever you are feeling I pray you will know you can leave it all at his feet! He can and wants to and will take it all from you!!! 

Just a few weeks ago I was having a really tough few days and the scripture that really spoke to me was Philippians 4:6

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

 

I pray right now you will not be anxious about anything and you will know that even though today may have not gone the way you planned, it can end joyfully and with him in full control. I pray you will give it all to him and find rest, and may his peace comfort you, may his peace guard you heart and mind! I also pray you know how much HE CARES for you and LOVES you!!

 

I know its not easy, but hold on and trust in him! He will make a way even when there seems to be no way!

Praying for you right now :-)

Lindsay.

 

Thanks for your comments. By reading all these, I am greatly encouraged. The word of God is indeed, living and active. I may be still suffering from depression and restlessness, but I put my trust in the Lord. I'd appreciate if you would include me in your prayers. 

Hello John, 

Thanks for joining and responding! YES I will definitely keep you in Prayers! I am so glad to hear you are encouraged and I pray like David you will daily encourage yourself in the LORD! I know sometimes it is easier said than done and many times the depression may try and take control... But I am grateful that we are overcomers by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testemony. So continue to declare GODS truth and precious promises over your life and thoughts and pains, he indeed is mighty to save! He will never give us more then we can bear and he is faithful to help us up when we fall!!!

I pray you will continue to stand in his truth and his amazing love that never fails and will truly see you through!

Keep fighting the good fight!

Praying for you!

Lindsay.
