Overcoming Depression - One Christian's Perspective is a personal testimony that details a depressive episode in my life that spanned 2= years. There were a number of factors that led to this depressive episode in my life. I could not eat, I cried a lot, and I felt worse than sad. There were some days I could not get out of bed, and I began to have thoughts of suicide. Nevertheless, I would not let the emotional despair of depression take hold of my life without taking a stand; so, I purposed in my heart to take this journey to overcome depression leaning and depending on the everlasting arms of Jesus Christ. This particular time in my life was an emotional roller coaster I had never ridden before. So, as I tell my testimony of overcoming depression and how God delivered me from going down into the emotional pit of depression, it is my prayer that you would also purpose in your heart to overcome because greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world (Jn. 4:4).
