Faith and Depression
August 2, 2019 • Psalm 88 Psalm 42 John 16:33
Depression does not discriminate. It afflicts men and women, believers and unbelievers alike. Many describe it as a feeling of heavy or even oppressive darkness that weighs down everyday life. Yet even in the worst throes of depression, we can find our experience reflected in scripture. Whether we experience depression ourselves or we long to offer comfort to a friend or family member living with depression, scripture offers us models for supporting and encouraging faith when all hope seems lost.
