Depression can take you lower than you ever thought possible and can last longer than you think you can endure. I know, because I’ve suffered through the depths and lengths of depression for more than thirty years.
I feel your pain. I really do. I’m sorry you feel this way, but I’m glad you’re seeking help. The fact that you are reading this indicates you want to get well. That’s a hopeful step. At least you have hope that you can get better and you’re trying to learn how. That’s a huge step. Welcome to the world of hope!
If you struggle with depression, I want you to know four things.
- God loves you.
- God knows you.
- God is with you.
- God is in control.
