For Those Who Battle Depression and Hopelessness
After grace, LIFE is the most precious gift that humanity has been given. There are many times life becomes hard and difficult and we feel overwhelmed by life’s circumstances. Many times things get so unbearable that people wish they were dead or had never been born.
“So that my soul chooses strangling, and death rather than my life. I hate this life! Who needs any more of this?” (Job 7:15-16)
In God’s word we are shown many great men who also faced overwhelming depression and wrote that they wished they had never even been born. Men such as King David, Jeremiah, and Job.
Each of these men reached a point where they despaired of their very lives.
Yet, David, Jeremiah, Job and others persevered through their trials and their victories over their depression are given as examples to us in God’s word. What saved them was their faith in God and His love and compassion. He sustained their minds, and healed their wounded hearts.
I want those who might be having feelings of desperation to know that there is a way out. There is hope and life for you, and God is that hope. He is the restorer of that which has been lost and He can heal any wound, be it physical, emotional, or spiritual.
The grace of God will keep you. There is someone who will make all the pain go away. His name is Jesus and He offers a love and peace for a broken heart that exceeds all human comprehension.
