Hope for the hurting
I have struggled with depression since I was a teenager; the frequency and severity of my despondency slowly increased as I entered adulthood. When I became a pastor at the age of 31, things got much worse. I reached the place last year, after three decades of struggle, that I became completely depressed and hopeless, begging God daily to kill me, and entertaining serious thoughts of escape, even suicide. With the love, help, prayers and counsel of family and friends, and with some excellent professional help, I stepped back from that awful precipice before I made some truly catastrophic choices. I have now hope, meaning, faith, and joy again.
And so can you.
