So much depression...



I look around
I listen
I see into the eyes

So much depression...

There are so many people inside and out of the church who are struggling with depression.  I, too, struggle occasionally.  Now that I have learned who I am in Christ, the frequency and duration of depression have lessened tremendously!

Is the Bible true?  Does God lie?  That's right, NO!  Therefore, anything you say or think that is contrary to what the Word says, is a LIE! 

God is so good!  The Bible is alive and active; it will penetrate even the hardest soul.

I did a Google search and found some great verses to declare over yourself.  Do it!  Even if you don't feel like it!  Print up some of these verses and speak them.  God's Word and YOUR word are powerful!

Life and death are in the power of the tongue.  Prov. 18:21

Because God is so good and loves us so much, we can say the following and they are totally true statements!
