Dealing with depression? Find encouragement in these Bible verses and tips.
Pain and disappointment can endanger your mental, spiritual and even your physical well-being. It’s only human for even the most righteous persons to be discouraged when they are overwhelmed. The Psalmist cried out in anguish, “My tears have been my food day and night” (Psalms 42:3).
When life knocks you down, or pulls you back from your hopes and dreams, remember these three things:
Regardless of what happens, never give up. Cling to faith and believe the best is yet to be. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).
Grow in the joy of prayer with prayer starters, advice and Scriptural teachings to guide you in your conversations with God.
