Two verses

I’ve been in a serial spiritual funk currently & I say serial because it stems from occurring bouts of mild depression. I am not saying I’m clinically depressed because it is so serious an issue & I don’t want to marginalize it. (Side note: Spiritual Depression by Martyn-Lloyd Jones is a great resource) But I have my dark periods & they’re coated with depressed thinking, despair, frustration, apathy & weariness. I feel this one might be recessing & that brings such joy to me.
But, until its behind me I’ll share my focus verses.
Romans 8:18, 26 NIV84

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us…26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

Cheers to the Saints!

An interesting view on depression (non biblical & fictional) is the book Mr. Chartwell, well worth a read.
