Understanding Depression: Overcoming Despair through Christ
Living Free Every Day®
Thoughts for Today
It is common for people with depression to feel that God's promises of hope are for others but not for them. They may feel left out of life by God, but his promises are true for everyone who has received Jesus.
Today's scripture tells us that we have everything we need to live a life that pleases God. The Greek word used here does not mean just staying alive as a biological creature, but rather a fulfilled spiritual life that changes our thoughts and actions in the direction of contentment and godliness. This includes a life filled with faith. This includes a life brimming with hope.
These thoughts were drawn from
Understanding Depression: Overcoming Despair through Christ by Donald G. Miles, Ed.D. This study deals with depression, a condition common throughout the world, and is suggested for use in support groups and Christian counseling.
Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups, and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
