             Then Jesus said to his disciples,

"If anyone would come after me,  he must first deny himself and

take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life

will lose it, but whoever loses  his life for me will find it.

Depression, Panic,

& Anxiety



I received an email from someone who felt that the link

below, "Depressed Saints", should be removed, or thrown

out. The reason given was that the link shares that

 all of us may go through periods of depression for

different reasons.


We all have a choice in how we handle

depression, and panic/anxiety disorder. In no way does the

link lessen the impact of depression, or just how hard it

can be to seek Gods word, counseling, or medication in

some instances.


Sometimes healing takes place quickly, and sometimes

it is a long drawn out process, but we do have a choice to

either let it completely overwhelm us, and possibly fall

into thoughts of suicide, or we can choose to seek

help and fight back.


He felt that the last thing someone suffering from depression

needs is to hear that they "have a choice". He seemed very

sincere that it was "counter-productive". I completely

disagree. Knowing we do have a choice, even if its not

an easy one brings hope. If you are suffering from

depression, or panic/anxiety disorder, or you live with

someone who does, my heart goes out to you.


My wife

suffers from them, and I have many friends, family

members, and people online I have met who do, or

have had. I pray the articles below the scriptures will be

of encouragement to you!


Please, feel free to write me anytime at

 If you have a testimony to share of how God sustained

you through a period of depression, or has healed you from

it, we'd be happy to consider adding it to our Inspirations

page to help others and to give God glory.



Isaiah 40:28-31 Do you not know? Have you not heard?

The everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the

earth. He will not grow tired, or weary, and His

understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to

the weary, and increases the power of the weak.


Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men

stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord

will renew their strength. They will soar on wings

like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will

walk and not grow faint.



John 14:25-27 All this I have spoken while still with

you. Bu the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father

will send in my name, will teach you all things and

will remind you of everything I have said to you.


Peace, I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give

to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be

troubled and do not be afraid.

Hi, my name is Lori. Panic attacks have been a part of

my life for a lot of years. I know the pain and despair that

panic can bring into a persons life. Fear, and the fear of

being afraid, destroyed my life.

I tried therapy and medications that helped a lot,

but the attacks and depression still nagged at me. It

seemed I would never be free of them. I became

 housebound, afraid that I would have an attack

and die in public.

With a lot of hard work and God's help I have found

a way to be free from panic. That way is what

I want to share with you.


 Hi, Welcome to Free from Depression.

My name is Lori and I have dealt with severe depression

 for years of my life. With a lot of work and God's

help and strength I made it through, and so can you.


That's what I want to

share with you. That you are not alone! If you are,

hurting, depressed, lonely or lost this is a safe place

of support and encouragement for you.
