Depression steals into our lives wrapping us in a blanket of gray. What can we do in those times? In Part 1 of the podcast segment, we discuss how thanksgiving and prayer can help lift us out of depression. In Part 2, we wrap up with three more strategies including knowing it’s a season, keeping up with activities, and focusing on others.
If you are struggling with depression and are having thoughts of suicide, you can reach out and get help. You can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). The hotline is open 24/7, and the call is free.
Ever been in a bad situation and it just gets worse? Join us for our brand new series “Hope When You’re at the end of Your Rope: Lessons From Ruth on Trust, Surrender, and Healing.” In the study, we will look at the story of Ruth where will draw lessons the next few weeks on the hope we have when life gets hard, and we feel abandoned and in need of rescue. With this new series, we will begin a new podcast/post schedule where we post podcasts during the week instead of the weekend. We will continue on with this series after next week when we wrap up talking about depression.
