In reply to God .... this is hard!, posted by Spriggy on February 14, 2005, at 22:20:45

Many believers through the centuries have found themselves where you are now. Hang in there.
I counseled folks for years ABOUT depression and anxiety...but not until I MYSELF EXPERIENCED IT IN MY LIFE could I really understand the depths of their suffering.
A closer look at the Bible has taught me that many if not most of Gods mightiest servants...struggled with depression, heaviness and anxiety.

(Paul the Apostle)2Co 1:8
For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:

Ro 9:2
That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.

2Co 2:1
But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.

(Job)) Job 9:27
If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself:

(David)Ps 69:20
Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

(Peter) 1Pe 1:6
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

Unfortunately because of living in a sin cursed world....born-again believers get sick, suffer, and must deal with the afflictions of mankind.
This includes depression and anxiety.

Thank God that we have tools ( medicines) today to help us advantage that those mentioned above didnt...but most of all we have HOPE that the Lord Jesus loves us, cares about us...and will recieve us into His Presence one day and ALL suffering will end forever~

(JESUS) John 14
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told * you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
