I suffer from depression…

This is a statement that more and more people are now admitting to. 15 years ago, saying you suffered from depression was a stigma; you either got the phrase “just get over it” or “just take some medication and you will be fine” or “go to counseling”.

Society has this idea of what a Christian is supposed to be and if we are not even an inch close to that we are put down for it; which makes our depression worse. We feel we are not good enough and why would God love someone who is so messed up?

Here is the reminder: God loves the broken. It wasn’t until I was older on how i finally understood that statement. I am a broken messed up ball of craziness, and God loves every ounce of me.
