Carla K

I am struggling with severe depression .

I am suffering with an overwhelming depression right now, I am not sure if it is hormone related?I am 42 and my mom didn't go through menopause till she was 50.I don't feel suicidal, but most days I wish I could fall asleep and not wake up. I feel completely alone and hopeless. And don't want to frighten my kids or Mother with what is happening to me. Some days I worry about my sanity. I feel very selfish asking for prayer for myself when there are so many people hurting and in pain out there , but if it helps, then I guess I am selfish. I always pray for others and when praying for myself I only pray that Gods will be done, whatever the situation.So I just ask that you please help me to pray for peace and serenity, and strength. Thank U Carla

Hi Carla, I pray for that you may feel blessed intead of depressed. I went through many rough times in my life, with my family, those that are supposed to love and care for me,were the ones that hurt me the most. I was in such intense (soul) pain that yes I thought of dying more than once but I love myself and I chose to love those that hurt me so much. And I started to ask Jesus to guide me. Then, one night I was asleep when I had a vision of love. I saw myself in Jesus' arms asking Him to never leave me. He told me He would never leave me. and in that instant I felt a love so immense and pure that I wanted to go back to sleep and not wake up (I was waking up when I felt this love). All I can tell you in my limited words is that it is the most beautiful feeling. When Jesus told me he would never leave me I understood that I needed to go on with my life, but He left me His love (I felt it)and it is so strong that It keeps me going. When I feel down I think of His love and of His promise to me and I know I am blessed. Carla anyone that believes will be blessed. Ask Him for guidance and for His love. All of us are special and He loves all of us the same way. Direct your thoughts to Jesus' love, every morning wake up and look out for nature, feel it, it is alive like you and me, hear the birds' song, join hiking groups, they always announce themselves in local magazines, thank God for the new day, for your children, your family, try doing some good everyday, it doesn't matter how small. Give something you don't need to someone that could use it. I know Carla good actions are going to give you peace and happiness. God bless you and your family. ASK, BELIEVE, RECEIVE. Love always.

Do not feel guilty; God cares about you just as much as anyone. You may want to see a physician or a therapist to see if they can help you figure out what may be wrong, and of course, I pray that God is with you and brings you through this as well. :-) Amen!

I pray to God to give your heart, your soul a peace with these situations that are seemingly unending. Today on this site there was a video about playing the lifting game, yes indeed this is an easy and fun day and when you lift up another person by just a smile, a simple good morning or how are you to day and so on, by the later part of the day you are lifted. Open each day with praise and thankfulness to God and to Jesus. Then lift, lift and lift and you too will find that in all people God is present and his love is there. I ask for great blessings and peace and ask just try out the lifting. I ask this rayer in Jesus name, Amen.
