I have had problems with this in the past....Can you get rid of satan? He's the culprit. He loves to control your thoughts. He loves to up-set the apple cart. Victories is yours through the Blood of Jesus. You either choose Jesus or pills. Pills can do so much, however, Jesus can do it all. Chemical imbalance: Lets talk on that a bit. I don't believe in that theory. What does it look like? Is is watery?, or what? I am sick and tired of everyone who's in this line of work, letting satan off the hook. Satan loves it. It is demons that makes, children scream, holler, cry. Satan can cause great pain in your mind. He picks and chooses his victims, you could be next. Stop labelling people. It is SATAN!

I'm a born-again Christian who was diagnosed with clinical depression years ago. I resisted taking medication for a few years but finally decided I needed to take care of myself. Please find a good doctor who will listen to you, evaluate your issues and prescribe medication if needed. It made all the difference with me. God bless you!

God bless you Geraldine
I'll add
Ephesians 5:20
"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ"

Absolutely refuse to apply anything but THANKS to the people and events in your life. This will keep you away from being full of SELF and keep you touching God, who plans ultimate good for us in all. 1 Thessalonians 5:18, "In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

Blogger: I know of no psychiatrists that are psychoanalysts. Psychoanalysis is a specialization within psychiatry that is rarely used, and is not covered by medical insurance. Most psychiatrists I have worked with professionally, as well as privately, practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Any practicing psychiatrist can prescribe medication, if it is warranted, for depression.

What's the opposite of depression? It's joy!
Joy comes from the Lord. So do something that pleases God.
How do we know what pleases God?
He will put a good thought into our mind, into our conscience. And when we do what he has put into our minds, then he will provide you with the Joy that will remove your depression.

Example: You see someone who needs help. They may need money, food, clothes, or just a ride on a hot summer day.
In your conscience God tells you to help that person.
If you do what God has commanded you to do, God will reward you with the Joy you seek.

The believer is to serve God on Earth as the angels serve God in Heaven.
Be an Angel!

"casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

You are not by yourself, but you have God and all of us.

And God alone really knows how to deal with you and depression and whatever you may be depressed about.

So, God bless you and prayer for you (c:

People carry alot of baggage, unresolved inner and outer conflicts. Evil is the exercise given to us from God to humble us(Ec 1:13) to bring us to Himself that He may reveal His love. As we earnestly seek Him, in honest humility as created beings, we can find much grace to overcome all things. Depression is awful and overwhelms the soul. It is only by putting on the new man, created in Christ Jesus, that progress can be made.
---Phil on 7/7/12


Depression has four principal causes:

1. The passing blues that we all experience. As long as we are in this life, we will have bad moods.

2. Reaction to something that is really depressing, such as the loss of a loved one or of a job, is normal. But this eventually passes.

3. Some physical diseases, such as diabetes, can cause depression. Treat the physical cause, and depression vanishes.

4. Clinical depression, however, is a PHYSICAL disease. It's a CHEMICAL IMBALANCE, and needs medical treatment. It's not a moral failure.

Hope this helps.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

You need to make an appointment with a Nero Psychoanalysts to ascertain the nature of your depression and treatment options as only a medical doctor can proscribe medications you might need or ascertain if there any organic brain conditions manifesting in clinical depression. Dont put this off, the sooner the cause is assessed the sooner you can be on a treatment program.

First thing is you should pray for God to guide you in this matter. You'll need wisdom and strength to move forward toward learning what type of depression you are dealing with.

So, the best advice I can give is to seek counseling or therapy, depending on if you have medical insurance or can afford to pay for a Christian counselor. Most Christian counselors are not covered by insurance, some are. Pray and ask God what direction you should go in.

Ask your counselor or therapist if they think you should have a psychiatric evaluation done to see if medication is appropriate for you.

do not spend a lot of time on these blogs if you can help it, and spend some time at the local shelters thinking of others.

if you are homebound, then try to find some ways that you can serve others.
