the joy of depression

Psalm 57:6-7 (JDV)

Psalm 57:6 They prepared a net for my steps; I was depressed. They dug a pit ahead of me, but they fell into it! Selah.
Psalm 57:7 My heart is confident, God, my heart is confident. I will sing; I will sing praises.

the joy of depression

No, that is not a type-o.  I said the joy of depression. It is the joy we can get after our depression (which is real and terrible) brings us back to our knees before our God, who is also real and the solution to depression. Spending some time back in the sanctuary of God’s presence helps pull us out of the pit that other people and bad circumstances can get us in.

I have friends who are struggling with anxiety, and I tell them to go back to the word of God and prayer on a regular basis. He works when drugs and rehab will not. He is strong enough to pull anyone out of their depths.

Lord, thank you for the low times because you pull us out of them.
