Redeeming Depression

Dear Diary,
Today I was feeling a little low. There was no reason, no trigger, so I’m assuming it’s hormonal. Which is pretty normal. But it got me thinking…

 

Once I heard a guest preacher say, “God is a God of positivity!” And I couldn’t disagree more. God is a God in our depression and in our joy. He is there partaking of both our sorrows and our highs.

 

There is an entire book titled “Lamentations” for goodness sake.

 

Yes, maybe some Christians are grumpy old sods, but perhaps there is a backstory behind it.

 

Okay, rant over.

 

P.S. I might explore this in greater detail (and expand this post) when I’m feeling up to it.
