It is my prayer that all of us will feel comfortable to discuss our struggles with depression and/or anxiety with each other. Remember, you are not alone – and you’re not a “weak Christian” if this is an issue for you.
1 Peter 5:7 (Amplified Bible)
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
Don’t you love 1 Peter 5:7 in the Amplified? Say this verse out loud using “me” in place of “you”:
God cares for me affectionately, and cares about me watchfully.
Share a goal, a struggle or leave a comment to build up someone else as we seek to cast all of our cares, once and for all, on Him. You can use a pseudonym (fake name) if you want.

Thank you, Racial. I agree, totally.
However, as one who struggled with depression, easier said than done when you’re in the middle of the struggle.
But I was able to do some of your eight steps when I found a good accountability partner. One who never made me feel bad when I didn’t do it but allowed me to share a goal I hoped to accomplish. Such as, “Joan, I’m going to try to take a shower. I’ll let you know when I get it done.”
Just knowing Joan was pulling for me to get even the smallest task done, gave me the boost I needed.
Thanks, again, Racial. And drop by again!
