I have had issues with depression and anxiety for years…sometimes I lack motivation, energy, or feelings of peace. I feel God has only healed me once or twice during prayer but in the past 5 years I feel like He has abandoned me. I have been on anti-depressants since then and I will be fine at times and other times get really messed up. I find myself more selfish and lack a sense of control with my life with these meds sometimes. I feel guilty and feel no relationship with God. I pray sometimes but get no answers. Maybe God has abandoned me. What should I do?

Make the choice to rejoice, it is all your choice, nobody can undepress you but you, It takes more energy to be depressed then it does to be happy, you have to think positive. it takes less effort, no wonder your drained of energy, make the choice to be happy from now on, watch only comedies, get some jokes down, read jokes, buy a joke book, “the joy of the Lord is our strength”, tell God that you rejoice in Him with much laughter, and joy, say it to Him often, (LAUGH AND SING!!) old habits are sometimes hard to break but it is said that it takes 21 days of practicing to change a habit, or character trait, so stop all the moeping, Practice laughing and singing for 21 days I know it may be alittle difficult at first and may seem silly too but if you ever want to get out of depression you have to do it, God has given us all the tools already for us to have the full victory, all we have to do now is use them, I’d say heres the answer to your prayer’s, you’ve hit the jackpot today, now use it. LAUGH HARD, REJOICE!!
