It is here! Bright Spots in the Darkness…Meditations When You Are Depressed is here!
It is time for depression to come out of the church closet. Christians can be depressed. Yet there is stigma in the church if you suffer depression. Well meaning people will say: “Just get over it.” “Think about good things.” “Confess your hidden sin.” “You must not be reading your Bible enough.”
Instead of help you may find judgment.
There is hope! God has not forgotten you. You have a disease. You are not alone. There is treatment.
Jesus’ Beatitudes can help us walk through depression. Bright Spots show how.
Bright Spots was birthed out of my experience with depression and by seeing many people throughout my ministry suffer with depression, too.
There were very few, if any, Christian books of meditations for those with depression. Bright Spots does not offer a cure. Severe depression is not usually solved quickly or with self-help books.
Depression is too complicated to be simplistic. But it does offer inspiration from a fellow traveler.
