20 Bible Verses to Help You Through Depression

Depression is something that many people struggle with, but not alot of people talk about it. This seems especially true for Christians. Personally I have struggled with the realization that I struggled with depression, more so out of pride and thinking that “christians shouldn’t suffer from depression”. Most times though, this reluctance to admit that there’s a problem often hinders your ability to overcome. In my previous post, I mentioned one of the 8 Tips to Help You Overcome Depression, one of these include gathering a list of scriptures that help to uplift you.
