Great Article on Depression

Mental Health and Faith

This is a great article by The Gospel Coalition on depression and anxiety. It’s written specifically for ministers, but the truths are relevant to all Christians.

“The best counselors have themselves been in counseling. It’s how God works.” and ““Damaged” does not mean “ineffective.” It does not mean “done.”” remind us all that everything God has brought into our lives is for His glory and can be used to serve Him.  Often it’s felt to me as if we are not supposed to talk about these things in the church. But depression and anxiety aren’t always a lack of faith or presence of some unconfessed sin. God can bring these things into our lives to keep us close to Him.

Very good read if you or someone you love live with these conditions.
