my feelings. Depression. bible verses.?
lately I’ve been feeling really depressed, and this isn’t how i am. I usually like to joke, laugh and talk to people. Now, i just don’t feel like putting up with shit from others, i just don’t want to talk to many people. I always had a short temper, but it just got shorter. I have never ever felt this depressed in my life before. Its a feel of guilt, and stress. The day I’ve felt depressed i wasn’t able to fall asleep. So i got up and prayed to god, which helped me feel much better.
I feel i’ve accomplished little, acheived little, i dont see a great future, not to my parents expectations. -> university.
I can’t blame them, they’ve dont so much for me, and i cant live up to the expectation.
It would be great if you guys can give me bible verses to go through this depression i’m in.
Recently, I’ve been mildly depressed too. I’ve found that prayer has helped me get through a lot, and these are some Bible verses that I’ve looked to guidance:
1 Corinthians 1:8-9
He will keep you strong until the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord is faithful.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Peter 5:6-7
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
I would recommend talking to your parents if you feel like you’ve been such a disappointment to them. They likely don’t feel the same way. Tell them how you’re feeling and they might be able to guide you also. It seems like you’ve been raised a Christian, so mention your struggles and depression to your parents and talk about it.
