Depression

2019 Aug 14 

 

I was spiritually attacked for a few days. Depressed struggling and crying a lot. Near the end of it, I reached up my hand to Jesus and He grabbed my hand to pull me out of the depression. That’s when I saw that I was actually underground in the spirit, in the dirt/earth and Jesus pulled me up. Then in my bible reading that day, this scripture came up:

 

O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. – Psalm 30:3

 

I know this scripture is actually about death. That is what depression is like. Your soul dying. That perfectly describes how it feels. Thank you Lord for pulling me out.

Some scripture that helps me when I feel depressed:

This is the day the Lord has made;

We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

 

Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy.6 He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him. Psalm 126:5,6

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” Psalm 34:18

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4

1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry.2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.  Psalm 40:1,2

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:11

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Update 22 sep:

Found another scripture:

You, who have shown me great and severe troubles, Shall revive me again, And bring me up again from the depths of the earth. – Psalm 71:20

 

It’s clear reading through Psalms that King David suffered from deep depression and despair from his enemies continually tormenting him. David went to these depths of depression and cried out to God many times, but always trusted in God to be his refuge and strength and God came through for David. I relate to this so much as I am tormented every day by my abusers, and it gives me comfort and hope. God bless

    He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy…
    I know how you feel, I was very depressed and was crying for 3-4 weeks. But Since the day of the deliverance session w Tania, the pain and tears dissipated 99.99%!!
