I battled significant depression my first decade and a half at the church I now serve. It was a very good experience because from that frustrating pit I was forced to learn of the working hand of God. I was driven to lean upon Him, for my efforts were often void of effectiveness. I found I could fix nothing on my own.
But the Bible changed my world. It pulled me into believing He could when I couldn’t and that He willed such to be my new life. The following passages changed my whole life…no more depression.
Emotional and mental imprisonment? No more!
I Cor. 1:26-31
I Cor. 3:7
I Cor. 12:11
II Cor. 3:4-6
II Cor. 4:16-18
II Cor. 10:12
II Cor. 12:9-9-11
I Cor. 1:18-20
In July I complete three decades at this congregation. The last decade and a half have been the reverse of the first; absolute joy. The Bible does know best.
