A Time to Be Depressed

By Pastor Joe Palmer

Fellowship Baptist Church

Let me encourage anyone who is depressed by telling you that though there are reasons to be depressed, there are also ways to escape depression.

For a small number of us, the reason for our depression is physical. Diabetes, anemia, cancer, thyroid disease, prescription drug side effects, sleep apnea, traumatic brain injury, perimenopause/menopause, chronic medical illnesses, vitamin D deficiency are all physical causes for depression. If you think that your depression is physically caused, see your doctor. Much relief can come through treatments.

For the majority of us with healthy brains, relief can be experienced if we trust God with our worries and choose to focus on caring for other people. Forgiveness and eternal life are a free gift, through Christ’s death and resurrection, to be taken if we are honest enough to admit we need it. If we are reconciled to God through Christ, we can trust God to cause all things to work together for our good. – This is all the security we need to take our eyes off of ourselves to care for others.

Come and join us at Fellowship Baptist Church. We can encourage you.

If you would like to talk with me (Pastor Joe Palmer of Fellowship Baptist) about it, email me at joeandsuzypal@yahoo.com.
