How can God help me when I’m in the midst of depression?
Clinical depression can cause serious feelings of despair. Often people experiencing this type of depression question their relationship with God. Does God love me? Can He forgive me? Is God real? The following brief yet thought provoking article discusses some of these perceptions:
“When one is in the middle of severe clinical depression, it is difficult, even impossible, to experience God’s reality, let alone God’s help. At least, that is the way it has been for me. But, at the same time, I have found myself in the middle of depression crying out for mercy with some of the most earnest prayers I have ever prayed. So I find it hard to know whether I do or do not believe in God when I am deeply depressed!”
