Why do people get depressed? How is it that people of faith can also struggle with depression? While there can be biological reasons for depression, most cases can be dealt with by directly addressing distorted thoughts. Feelings come from thoughts and thoughts come from beliefs.
If you are struggling with depression, see if any of these false beliefs are tripping up your thinking. Pain and suffering are an unfortunate part of life, but when negativity becomes chronic, something is amiss. God wants us to turn from falsehood and the lies of the enemy, so we can fully enjoy Him.
