    August 27: Depression

         

    Aren't Christians supposed to be happy? To rejoice in the days that the Lord has made? So, why do so many of us feel so unhappy? Depression is a complicated struggle that has both chemical and spiritual components. It often leads to greater depression as the depressed realize how many "rejoicing commandments" they aren't keeping. This message looks to the Psalms/Lamentations to resonate with 'down and out' Christians and to remind them of the God who walks with them in the darkest valley.

    Spirit vs spirits. Paul talks about the two ways to find excitement, joy, etc. - to be filled with the Spirit or to get drunk on beer, wine, and spirits. As Paul explains in Ephesians 6, these two paths affect marriage, children, work, and spiritual warfare.
