Reading Time: 3 minutes My experience of depression is like living in a world where I am the only one surrounded by a blanket of fog. It’s disorienting, confusing and distorts things. Affirming words can pass through the fog and end up as condemnations. As a follower of Jesus it’s hard watching others so free and passionate in their worship, so joyful in their embraces, and not be swept away by my own shame, guilt, and unworthiness.

Reading Time: 4 minutes We have all been in seasons where the darkness has overwhelmed us. Our understanding fails us and our sense of God is lost in inner anguish. We lament over things that have been long gone but it feels like it just happened. Heaviness and despair can be our companion more often than we would care to admit. But in this place of darkness is where God can do His greatest work.
