In reply to God and depression, posted by Susan J on January 1, 2004, at 13:28:42

When I read your post I see God right beside you in your thoughts providing the answers as you ask the questions.

Depression is difficult to understand when we can't see the whole picture, but if we could, things might fall more into perspective for us. Maybe the time we spend on earth is minute compared to where we've been and where we're going. Perhaps we are sent here to be tried and tested, to see what fabric we are truly made of.

By your last statement about making a difference, "even if it's only in a tiny way", it appears that if we can just ask the questions, we may get the answers.

I believe God stays especially close to us in our depressions, that we can use that time to get to know God. Some people think the incomprehensible God lives in an unreachable place, but I think he lives in the trenches, and meets us at the bottom of our bottomless pit. I firmly believe we can use our depression, or other disorders to draw especially close to God. Even spiritual peaks can surprise us during these times. Never doubt it is possible. And try to keep asking questions.
