My heart goes out to anyone who is suffering from depression. I have been there many times and it is not fun. Our son took his life so I know first hand what you are dealing with. It is overpowering at times and can even incapacitate you. It is such a strong force that takes a huge toll on the body. It makes you not want to get out of bed. It makes you incapable of doing normal activities. It is a heavy burden for the mind. I want you to know that if you are suffering from depression that God loves you. He knows what you are going through.

Dear Jesus,
I can’t stop thinking about the fact that I only have a couple hours left before the funeral. This is devastating me, Lord. I can feel depression trying to take its hold on me. Father I hate feeling like this! I wish I had my child back. Lord, I know that when I am there I am going to break down and cry. Please wrap your arms around me and hold me through the heartache that is coming. I am so down right now. Lord, you have the power to lift this depression off of me and I pray that if it is your will that you would. If not, I know that every trial has a purpose and I want to learn from this if it lingers on. You are sovereign and I trust You completely with my own well-being. I love You, Jesus. Amen
