In Job Chapter Three, Job speaks like a real sad man, he was obviously deeply depressed. Many of his friends came to counsel him, and all of them didn’t know what to say,even his wife was tripping! It wasn’t until Job got ALONE and had a conversation with God that his mind was refreshed and renewed. With the power of God Job willed his self back to joy!
If you suffer from depression, whether short or long-term, it can be very hard on everyone. If the people you love are used to you being bright and up beat, they may try to “help” you smile. Yet, God allows us to have sorrow many times in our lives so that we can run to Him and Him alone.
