There are times in our lives that we all feel a little blue.
Some more than others. We often refer this to our "blue times"
of feeling depressed. The occasional depressed feelings
that we feel if a good time ends or if our best friend
moves away are all examples of what can produce a sense of
depression in our lives.
What I am talking about now is the persistent sad, anxious or empty mood one experiences. Although I believe that God is the ultimate source of healing, He also provides efficient medical and psychological assistance. There is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about either. If you are experiencing five or more of the following symptoms below for more than two weeks, or if the symptoms interfere with your daily routine, you may be suffering from what is known as Clinical Depression. I emphasize the "MAY BE" part:
sleeping too little or too much;
reduced or increased appetite, and/or weight change;
loss of interest in activities once enjoyed;
medically unexplained aches or pains;
restlessness or irritability;
difficulty concentrating or making decisions;
fatigue or loss of energy;
feeling guilty, hopeless or worthless;
thoughts of death or suicide.
I would like to leave you now with these words of encouragement from the Lord Jesus Christ:
