Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Depression happens whenever a loved one is gone completely. Sometimes it can be frustration, anger, stress, and any negative emotional feeling. Even though there are many types of depression it’s still depression. I know that some of you reading this are dealing with it. This has been on my heart to talk about it.
This really gets to me to know that there are friends, family, and people around who are secretly going through this. I wrote because this was requested by a good friend of mine as well as for those who needs it or may know someone who does. Depression is not easy to cope with. It takes weeks or years to deal by seeing a therapist but my joy is in Jesus.
Sometimes people turn to alcohol or smoking or whatever to get them feeling high like on a better level. I tell you this even though drug use may get you felling high, the one who is high above is higher than depression. I must admit there were times when i felt depress but just because I felt like I didn’t feel important to anyone but I truly know in my heart that I am important to God.
Coping with depression, I suggest to seek God. Joy is found in him alone because he will always be there when you feel alone. On another note talking to someone can help with dealing with depression. I find just talking to God is the most amazing thing because even though you cannot see him, he’s there listening to your every word. Talking to someone can help relieve depression. Before I go, here’s a prayer for anyone dealing with it:
I lift up to you everyone that’s dealing with depression. God, I know that there are times when they are feeling hopeless and alone. God I asked that you let them know you are there and hope is found in you and you alone. God you have not given us a spirit of depression but the fruits of the spirit as it says in Galatians 5:22, ” But the fruits of the spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, faithfulness…” Lord be with those who are depress. Hear their cry out to you.
In Jesus name I pray,
