Depression and the Bible
GOD PAUSE: I'm so glad to be able to connect with you right now. And I want this to also be a “connect with God” moment as well. You know, the Bible talks quite a bit about depression. Proverbs 12:25 says “Anxious fear brings depression, but a life-giving word of encouragement can do wonders to restore joy to the heart.” You see, worry brings fear with it. And that can often result is crippling depression. But a continual flow of encouraging words can drive it away and replace depression with joy. And the the best way to have that continual flow of encouraging words in your and my lives is by spending time reading our Bibles,. Heavenly Father, fill my friend's heart with joy. A joy that replaces the depression. Words of God, work your miracle power. Amen and amen.
