Sadness and depression are related, yet depression is like sadness on steroids. ~ Bill Greguska
What Is Depression/Deep Sadness?
It is an illness that involves the brain. It can affect your thinking, mood, and daily activities. Depression is more than feeling sad for a few days. Depression can be mild or severe.
Mild depression can become more severe if it’s not treated. Often people use the expression, “I am depressed about (___________),” which is not necessarily the same as clinical depression.
If you are diagnosed with depression, you aren’t alone. Depression is a widespread illness that affects millions of adults in the United States every year. The good news is that it can be treated.
Trying to get help is the best thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones. You can feel better. Often talking with a close friend, pastor, a counselor can help you determine what is going on initially. It could be a situation, or lack of proper sleep, diet, or exercise, etc.
Learn How Deep Sadness Can Be Overcome!
There Will Be Storms And Deep Sadness In All Of Our Lives!
Weathering the storms of depression needs help from a close friend, church member, or possibly medical treatment.
My pastor’s wife, Sue Sauer, helped me a lot when I was depressed while going through a divorce I did not want – also, my mother, Pastor Mark Mallwitz, and Pastor Dave Briscoe were all very encouraging.
Looking back, I learned that when I trusted a close friend for support, it took the load off my shoulders. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. Remember that sadness is a very regular part of life.
Depression does not have to be a way of life! Like a dog, depression can be controlled and trained bottom line; you can overcome depression and deep sadness with help from God and others in your life!
President Abraham Lincoln Battled Depression!
President Abraham Lincoln battled depression, deep sadness, and suicide all his adult life. Lincoln would not allow himself to carry a knife for fear that he would hurt himself or worse.
Sometimes depression can be a purely spiritual thing, and it must be fought with God’s word. Take your concerns to the Lord and ask the Lord for His help to sort things out with you.
Depression is the physical and emotional result of hopelessness, the “feeling” of hopelessness. We live in a world devoid of hope; depression becomes the emotional product of that reality.
The only thing that will change one’s life sufficiently to destroy the cause, mechanics, and effects of depression is God’s hope and His word of faith. The answer is to get God’s hope back inside of you.
Correct Medical Help Can Be Very Helpful For Deep Sadness!
If I were you, I would see my doctor or therapist before I got too far down. Pay attention to your symptoms and the feedback from trusted friends and loved ones. The sooner you recognize and admit you are depressed, the sooner you can turn things around.
There are times when using anti-depressants for a short time can be very helpful. If you or someone you know suffers from depression, there is hope for depression, and help is available. You are not alone. With God’s help, you will climb out of this hole.
These scriptures on depression will give you hope and will build your faith. Confess and meditate on them to win the fight. The key is not losing Hope.
Allow the hope of God to seep back into you. Remember, there is a real Person (God) behind every one of these promises. He promised them to you for a reason – to help you.
