Depression is brutal, real, and Christians are not immune to it. One of the powers of depression is that it makes you think you are the only one… it likes to isolate. What you need to know is that depression is not as uncommon as you might think. Many great Christians over the past 2,000 years have suffered from depression at levels ranging from seasonal to full on. Charles Spurgeon and Martin Luther are just two of them that battled against the dark cloud of depression.
