Re: Depression


Hi, I hear ya... depression is not fun. I cope with it by constantly staying in the word of God. Lots of Psalms. But what I find most comforting is passages like Romans 8 that talks about being crucified with Christ. Because I have been battling as long as I have been, I'm mostly dead anyway. Which is kind of eerie, and yet really neat at the same time. The things of the flesh that used to get to me... I can't even muster up a response for, let alone care about more than to realize that I'm dead to it anymore. SO I rejoice in my suffering. It brings more glory to Christ.

I really like how Paul says that he boasts in his weaknesses, for to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

I totally know what he was talking about.

Most of the time, I feel like the determination I used to hold to God and his word with so strongly is meager and weak now, like a newborn, or an old frail woman's hand might be. At first this scared me. It still creeps me out a little. Cause I'm not entirely dead. But I trust in Jesus more than my own understanding.

I know better than to give the best of myself to clutches of death.

It's one thing to struggle with depression, it's another to not even fight.
