(That's one of my favorite verses.)
|Depression is like an elephant sitting on you and you can't get up.|
~ Henry Ford
Depression kept me down for years. I tried to eat myself into an early grave. I felt unworthy, unable to cope. Praise God for His healing. I still have days when I feel the effect on my thoughts, but His mercy is new every morning, so I know I must look up. I had one of those days Saturday. God is helping.
Loss or betrayal can, at any time, throw us into a spiral of depression. Our only hope is through Jesus Christ. I pray today for all those battling with depression's effect.
