Is depression messing with your faith? — 10 Comments

  1. Alienation from all four of my adult children can be very depressing. However, God’s Word is truly my firm foundation. I am blessed with a loving and supportive second wife (going almost 20 years.) My church community and friends are gifts from above. I know God is still working in me for His good reason. It seems like you and I have a lot in common, Sheryl! One of my favorite verses is Ecclesiastes 3:11 New International Version (NIV). 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

    • Hello, FellowBeliever! I love that verse, too!! Praise God for all He continues to do in each of us.
      Thanks for stopping by – and taking the time to leave a comment!!

      • You are such a compassionate person, Barbara. Yes, it is painful but the hardest part is to stop dwelling on it. Sheryl says it best: every time your mind begins to race with despairing thoughts, remind yourself that God will never stop until He brings His work to full completion … in you.

  2. Your articles on suicide and depression were spirit filled and so precious. Thank you for your honesty and being so transparent. Love you sister in Christ !!!!!

  3. Barbara, I want to thank you for reaching out to FellowBeliever. He was right to say you are a compassionate person. I know that to be true, personally.
    FellowBeliever, we’ve been in touch before regarding an earlier post. I continue to thank God for giving you His grace to persevere AND for blessing you with a supportive spouse!

    I appreciate both of you, Barbara and FellowBeliever, for being part of Today Can Be This blog grows when people join in the discussion – and pray and support one another. I’m blessed to have you.

  4. Thank you Fellow Believer and Sheryl. God is teaching me love and compassion. I still have a long way to go. I am encouraged also by the scripture Sheryl gave you which you are holding onto for comfort. “God will never stop till he brings his work to completion.” But in the mean time We continue to pray and lift up one another as Jesus did. My prayers are with you.
