Its power is suffocating and often occurs without warning. Before you know it you’re hiding under the covers, everything appears dark; sleep is fleeting, there is a loss of interest in regular activities and feelings of sadness and emptiness pervade your thoughts. Depression is debilitating and affects many but God can help you through the dark parts of life.
There is no easy answer to depression since varied factors can put it into motion. But if you find yourself in that dark space it is good to seek God, to ask for help to restore joy. God’s word is filled with encouragement that addresses those times when darkness looms. Yes, prayer is important but after you pray, wait! Wait on God to hear you. Trust that God hears you! And believe that God will deliver you!
Darkness will never overcome light so trust the Light that lives inside of you knowing that God will come through!
I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the LORD
and put their trust in him.
