Drowning In Depression

by PamFord Davis  
3/21/2009 / Devotionals

Anti-depressants are nearly dispensed as frequently as common aspirin. One of the fastest growing age groups being prescribed these medications is preschoolers. Broken homes and over stressed parents pull security out from under their children. Adult usage is a result of stress and anxiety that pushes many past their limits to cope. I am grateful help is available.
The Bible speaks honestly about our emotions, both the highs and lows. We often sway between extreme ranges from love to hate, forgiveness to bitterness, fear to trust, and joy to depression. The Psalmist in Psalm 42 and 43 appears to be drowning in depression. Personally many times those raging waters have pulled me under. Carefully read those two psalms and then repeat the reading again. This is self-talk surrounded by an intimate relationship with God. The writer faces his depression and honestly asks God, "Why?" His conclusions are revealed in the last verse of both Psalms. He declares the life saver he will reach out to for deliverance. 'Why am I so depressed? Why this turmoil within me? Put your hope in God; for I will still praise Him, my Savior and my God (Psalm 42:11/ Psalm 43:5)" He is our only lasting hope!
