Many people in the Bible understood what depression feels like. For example:
I am worn out from my groaning.
All night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears.
My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of all my foes.
Reproaches have broken my heart,
so that I am in despair.
I looked for pity, but there was none,
and for comforters, but I found none.
Does any of this sound familiar?
The good news is that God doesn’t want us to live with these feelings! He wants us to have the joy of the Lord rise in us and chase away spirits of heaviness. As it is said in Psalm 6:8-9:
Away from me, all you who do evil,
for the LORD has heard my weeping.
The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;
the LORD accepts my prayer.
God wants us to cry out to Him so He can lift us out of depression. Go on, talk to him. He is able to save you from whatever mess or situation you are in. He is able to save. :)
