Overwhelmed: Choosing to Look Up When I Feel Down
Welcome to Grace Chapel! One in five people of the population will have at least one major episode of depression in their lifetime. Whether depression is caused by physical, emotional, or spiritual realities, and whether it is spontaneous or caused by a terrible circumstance, we can recall God’s character even in the midst of it. In this message we look at the way to deal with our depression biblically and discover the key to eradicating it every time it rears its ugly head.

Depression exists because of SIN and it is a form of SUFFERING. (Lamentations 3:1-18)


Disappointment is a temporary loss of perspective.
Sin warped my PERSPECTIVE, but Christ will correct it.
Depression can have many CAUSES. (3:19-20)
Face bad MEMORIES and transition to the TRUTH of God quickly.
Whether depression is caused by physical, emotional, or spiritual realities, and whether it is spontaneous or caused by a terrible circumstance, we can recall God’s character even in the midst of it.
Depression has one main SOLUTION. (3:21-26)
WAIT upon the Lord by trusting that what He did in the PAST, He will do again.
“God has not been trying an experiment on my faith or love in order to find out their quality. He knew it already. It was I who didn't. In this trial, He makes us occupy the dock, the witness box, and the bench all at once. He always knew that my temple was a house of cards. His only way of making me realize the fact was to knock it down.” ― C.S. Lewis
This week I will…

· Make a list of 25 good things God has given me and share the list with others.
· Ask a friend to pray with me and help encourage me to see God’s goodness.
· Memorize Hebrews 4:15-16.
· Make a “think and do” list of profitable things I can think and do when I am feeling down (hint: keep the list with you for quick reference).
