Is it just me?
Depression sucks, for lack of a better word. It's taken so much from me: relationships, strength, who I am, time with friends, and sometimes even the joy of life. I know how it feels to be abandoned, misunderstood, and judge all based off a disease you cannot help. I know what it's like to have your emotions take control of your life and it's not fun. Being robbed of everything based off a decisions you didn't make, but you know what? No matter depression's strength, it's never taken God's love, hope and promises from me. He won't leave like a boy/girlfriend who can't handle it or a parent who thinks you are doing it for attention. He won't love you to your face then spread rumors behind your back. In romans 8: 38- 39 it says, "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord." He loves you and has a great plan for you. Trust that He will protect you, you're still here aren't you and the sun is shining!
