Testimony: God Healed Me From My Depression.

Anonymous testimony "God Healed Me From My Depression." on 4/13/2016, 1:25pm...

I have been a Christian since I was very young, but as I grew older I began to slowly drift away from God. I had the wrong friends and I considered them more important than Him. I was deeply insecure and wanted to be liked and accepted by them, so I shut God out and followed them instead. That was also the year that my grades tanked, and I started feeling numb to the world, like nothing was actually real. I began to hurt more and more, and I started to hate myself because it felt as if I couldn't do anything right and I was worthless. Then the depression really hit me, and I passed the days in a haze of numbness, weariness, and hurt. I told no one because I didn't want to burden them with my "stupid" feelings. After all, I had no reason to be hurt, right? It was not like I had had something bad happen to me, like a family member dying. I had had a mostly happy life, until then. I didn't have "the right" to feel this way... right? Well, my church (Rhema Bible, in case you were wondering) was having an event (Summer Blitz) where people from all over the world would come and listen to the sermons from many different speakers. That week, God brought me back to him, and I rededicated myself to him. I remember getting in the prayer line for healing, and as I was being prayed over I felt something in my mind give way, and I fell onto my knees. It was as if a barrier in my mind collapsed, and I could clearly see that the way I had been thinking was not right, that it was the enemy trying to draw me away from God. That moment marked the start of my recovery from depression. God helped me fight my way out of it. It was hard, the hardest thing I have done, but God was with me every step of the way. I am now 100% free of depression. God can heal you, and help you with anything, any hurts you have, every one, even the ones that feel as if they'll hold you down forever.
