Hey everyone. I am in serious need of prayer. I've had depression for a little over a year now, but it's gotten slightly better over the last few weeks. Something happened recently that sent me spiraling again, and now I'm in a really bad place. I just don't want to live anymore. I don't think I would ever kill myself, but I still have no desire to live or motivation to do anything really, and the one thing that did give me motivation has been taken away. So yeah, please pray. Thank you :)

    I have been exactly where you stand and honestly I tend to fall back into that place every now and then, but don't quit. That's exactly what the devil wants you to do; he wants you down and depressed and not motivated so you won't be out doing the things God has set before you! If you're a child of the one true king, then you posses joy in your heart, and sometimes when we're waiting on God, he is waiting on us to reach down and unlock the joy he has so graciously put within us. Jeremiah 29:11 states, "For I know the plans I have have for you says the Lord, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." Here is your reason to live and your motivation! Just think while you were being formed in your mothers womb, God was creating your life and putting together great plans for you! The King of kings was creating plans for you!! Just try to see beyond your situation and see the big picture; you may be struggling now but God has great plans for your life. (:

    I will definitely be praying for you! I have struggled with mental health problems too, and I have wanted to just give up. But now I've never been more joyful to be alive. God used those hopeless times to shape my soul, and I know that if you turn to Him, He will do the same for you. I hope that things turn around for you, and I will be praying for you :)

    PS- if you haven't heard the song "Oceans" by Hillsong, listen to it.

    That's hard; I know. Sometimes I just want to be done with life also. There's a song that says, "...Maybe the silence is His mercy and there's beauty in this mystery..." I'll be praying you'll be guided through the uncertainty. And when we make something on this earth our motivation instead of Christ we'll only be let down. He is our strength and security. But it's really challenging to believe that sometimes!
