Do Christians get Depressed?

Standard

psalm3418

 

 

 

Can Christians be depressed and still have faith?  Psalm 42:5  Why, my soul are you so downcast?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God.  Fortunately, the Bible does not view a downcast person to have a lack of faith.  It presents God’s people just the way we are: sometimes angry or confused, and sometimes bitter or depressed.  According to 1 Kings 19, the prophet Elijah was so depressed the he asked God to let him die.  So if you feel like Elijah today, you need to do what the psalmist did… HOPE IN GOD! He provides the help we need through others whom he equips with gifts of counseling and understanding.  need prayer, counseling or understanding.. call us 1-800-944-8443 or visit the prayer works page at kswp.org~~ Jenn
