I get depressed and have prayed to God to help heal me for the past 5 years but no answer.?

by J.P.:

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?

Answer by Carlos S
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!!

Trying finding the answer for your problem elsewhere.
Wow, thumbs down for not coming right out and saying for you to seek medical attention. What did you people think I meant when I suggested the answer be found elsewhere…?

monstrisa QMM

go to a doctor, they have medicine you can take to help

Me too. This does not actually cure depression but when it works you know God is not ignoring you and you can find a form of peace.
Is God Ignoring Us
It is tempting to think God is ignoring me when things do not go well. This may even be partially true if we have not established a relationship to him. So how do we do that?
1)Ask the Spirit that made all things to come into your life. This prayer should be prayed silently as you are going to ask for a response and if you pray out loud there are other voices you may hear. The devils work through subliminal advertising. Ask Google what that is if you do not know. Also at the same time ask the Spirit for His name.
2)Then out loud say “Spirits who love the name of (the name you were given) please come near and drive away the spirits of evil.” You may also ask for protection from evil at the same time. This prayer is out loud because only the Spirit that made all things can actually read your thoughts. Even the righteous spirits (angels) can not read your thoughts although if you tend to subs vocalize what you are thinking they may be able to make a good guess.
3)Then determine something in your life that if it happened the way you want could possibly considered a miracle or at least highly unlikely. Say out loud “IN the name of (the name you were given) make (whatever you want) so”
4)Watch and continue to follow the above as you and the rest of the corporeal cosmos need reminding.
My personal miracle continues to be with me even as I type this reminding me that the Spirit loves me and will care for me.
Not everything that happens to me or around me is good all the time but most of it is. I am blessed although I fuss from time to time and become disturbed. I am a child (to God) after all.
I typed the above some time ago and my personal miracle still holds.
May the Spirit that made all things continue to bless you

Old Man from Scene 24

I’ve heard Christians say a day to God is 1000 years to us, so you may have to wait the rest of you life if he took a smoke break or something.

Maybe you should pray to yourself instead of fate and find a purpose in life, do something that will make you not regret your life like make a difference in the world.
Become a doctor or engineer or scientist, how would you ever regret or live in depression helping other people?
Depression is because of your lifestyle and you’re going to have to change that, you’re not living the life you are supposed to live. Set some goals and achieve them. If you live without goals or dreams then what’s the point of living if you have nothing to look forward to, what do you want?
Work towards what you want, you can set all kinds of goals… financial, career, social goals. Help other people out and help yourself out, work for the red cross and buy yourself a ferrari, beats me what you want but you have to work towards things in life, that’s a given.
Put ur faith in someone close to you, that you are positive wont let you down. Medication is not the key, but it can be really funny.
So whom should you blame……….God or yourself? I had the same problem as yourself for many years growing up. Then one day I received a message from within me. The resounding thought was simply…….” Begin jogging, and physical fitness” It did so and have been doing so for the past 40 years, and in doing so I have rid myself of any depressed thoughts , feelings and physical side effects that depression used to bring upon me. I can tell you that if you’re able, that physical fitenss and jogging/running should carry you way beyond your concern of depression and in the interrum God will bless you for your efforts.
Another thought I will leave you with….Get your mind off yourself and your own problems and focus on others or one or two particular people and you may begin feeling better about yourself as well! By focusing only on yourself, tells God that you are only about YOU and that’s not God’s intentions for US!
i understand how you feel…what i try to remember is that the Bible says God will never leave nor forsake you. So even if i feel like He has, i know that because I believe what the Bible says is true, what I feel can’t be right. there will be times (maybe even a long time) when we’ll feel like God is nowhere to be found but that’s because we’re human with human emotions and feelings. what the Bible says, which is that He’s always there and always with us whether we feel Him or not will never change or become false.
just believe that things will get better and i promise they will…i already prayed for you 🙂 i really hope you the best and hope you feel better very very soon

Dave

God will never abandon you…. though as to what his plan is only he can say… all i can sugest is read your bible, listen to some spiritually uplifting music, and continue to pray and draw near to him…
ill be praying for you

no body

looks like that so-called god has decided that it is your lot in life to suffer and be depressed as he “tests” your faith.
sadly, an all knowing god wouldn’t need to “test” anything, because he’d already know what the outcome would be, wouldn’t he?

JewishGuy

G-d will never abondon you, but you need to help yourself as well. As the saying goes “G-d helps those who help themselfs!” I understand your depression, but maybe you could ask G-d for some volunteering or other event that help people to come your way. Join them, and help people. It really makes you feel better. Or volunteer at an Animal Shelter. You just need to feel as though you are needed in this world, and you are! G-d needs all of us, you just havn’t found the path he has set for you yet. Trust me, it will come along 😉

if the depression is your problem, come back to your psychiatry and take again your depression”s pill it is the only help to come back to your life.

jimguyy

Keep on striving to conquer your depression. Never, never, never, never quit. Be a good soldier for Jesus Christ. In the end, if you have received the salvation God has offered to mankind through His son Jesus, Heaven shall be your home. And try forcing yourself to smile at people, even if you are depressed. Also maybe become a helpful person. Pray asking God to make you a blessing to others and when it comes don’t be lazy. Helping others can be a blessing.

Reileah

Ummm… if you were diabetic would you pray instead of getting medical attention?
You don’t need any invisible sky fairy, you need to find a good psychologist.

TazyRed

first ask this question? do u really have a personal relationship with god
second do you only pray to god when you have problems?
i think you need to stay strong and trust in god. dont give up on him for god never gives up on his children. keep praying and stay faithful and truthful to god.
go to church and read the Bible
live a holy life and do whats right

Seni

I had the same problem with depression for about 6 or more years and half of the time i prayed and got no answer. I don’t know about you but after that, i decided not to pray for him anymore if he doesn’t hear me. It was at that time i question my beliefs.
If you feel that he abandoned you, abandon him(That’s up to you). He isn’t worth your time. You better times to do like getting better.

Ben

He answered already your prayers in advance when He inspired those who have studied to be Psychiatrists. Therefore, there is no use to pray. That’s just an exercise into
futility.

Annie

Hmmmm, are you sure God has not put the answer right in front of you ? I am NOT trying to sound mean or what ever, it is just my husband suffers from depression and anxiety too… and I see all the good and great things around him that he is just not trying or incapable of seeing…… He has a habit of seeing the negative and not the positive…. He is getting better, I try to keep him focused on the good !! I have nothing against people using meds IF needed, but are you sure you are on the right ones ?? Maybe they are not doing their job anymore……. maybe find something in life you like and enjoy doing and focus on that… *sigh*, sorry, just felt I needed to say something here…. find a group…… find people in your area that have meetings and attend….. go in peace….. God bless

♥aprilheartsyou™

Trust me, God has not abandoned you. He loves you.
So, I see you a Christian so I hope you have a bible owned and if you do read about the section under prayers. And remember thank him ahead of time and always have faith!

Apostle Jeff

Go to a Church where people get healed and delivered,

Leo

I was on Prozac for 10 plus years.I was shown that I was stronger without it.I doubted I became more depressed. Medecine should be used temporarily to improve not cure depression.If you are depressed find the root of your depression and fix it.Then slowly with consent from you doctor get off of it.You will see that everything will be fine in time. I am Catholic and following confession,recieving communion,and the commandments will have great benefit for you.God bless you.

Pamela P

I have not suffered depression but I have struggled with deep grief and sorrow. I too have prayed and when those prayers fell on deaf ears, I prayed for less, and then even less until I stopped praying altogether. I too felt as though the God I had trusted all of my life, had dismissed me. But then I realized that I was looking at and focusing on what I had lost instead of the precious gifts I had overlooked in the darkness brought on by the immense sadness. I still grieve for my loss and I always will. But now I try to see what is GOOD and it is then that I know that God has NOT forgotten me. I suppose we simply cannot have it all. Rest you weary heart…

Well, you have to understand that the christian god whatever his name happens to be at this time, has lost so many of his helpers, for the reason that he did not give them what he promised in the contract. So he has to do all or most of the work himself now, so that is why christian now claim that a day in their god’s life is like a thousand years would be in our life. You see they cam up with that 1,000 year figure because they knew those asking now will never be alive to know whether or not they got and answer. What am I suggesting to you? Plainly that you need to start believing in reality and thinking about your condition and being honest with your Dr. and try to push yourself to become well, but belief in that other nonsense is just going to make you worse.

Stasia

You have never been alone one day of your life. You need to get to the root of the depression and anxiety…what is really causing it. Drugs help, but they are mostly a bandaid. Also, you have to meet God half way. You want to be healed and you say that there was some type of healing, but did you change your life style? Sometimes it helps to write a gratitude journal, listing everything you are thankful for making sure to note all the beautiful things you came in contact with. Even if it means being grateful for the wind blowing that day. It is about reprogramming your mind. I used to suffer from depression several years ago, its all about re-wiring your mind and thinking different. Try some of Louise Hays books on hayhouse.com she has some really good books about healing yourself! Good luck!

Pam

Get off the meds. Tell your doctor that they are not helping you. You might need a different dosage or different meds. It could be caused by your thyroid or hormones or anything. Get your doc to check your thyroid.
I know God is still with you and I am sorry you feel messed up on the inside. Has anyone prayed for you? Have you told your pastor or priest what’s wrong with you? Prayer does change things. I don’t know what is hindering you but I pray that you get some relief from this and that it never returns.

Caroline

Christians go through low periods just because we have to face day to day problems like anyone else. Some need antidepressants and other’s can get through these sad moments without them. It could be you need to talk to your doctor about your meds, it could be he needs to switch you to something else.
What about writing your feelings down on paper. I did this at one time; for every negative thing in my life and how I felt about them I sought to find a positive. What about making it a daily practice to read the scriptures. Make it a habit by reading and meditating on them. By reading the Psalms I learned that those writers went through similar downhearted feelings as we do today.
Continue praying, try to seek out those around you who can build you up, and remember you can always trust God to get you through the hard times.
As an after thought, in addition to taking care of your spiritual health, take care of your physical health too.

Beth R

Maybe God has tried to help you but you havn’t seen it?
A flood came and a man was stranded on a roof. A boat passed by with a man in it. ” Get in the boat!” the man said.
” God will save me” the first man said and the boat continued on.
Another boat passed by with a man in it. ” Get in the boat!” the man said.
” God will save me” the first man said and the boat continued on.
A third boat passed by with a man in it. ” Get in the boat!” the man said.
” God will save me” the first man said and the boat continued on.
The man drowned. When he got to heaven he asked God, “Why didn’t you save me?” God answers, ” I sent you three boats!”
Maybe God is trying to help you through other people or things.
God Bless!

Go out and find Him or what He has set out for you. I was in a similar situation (with a LOT of anxiety… maybe should have tried meds but i’m really against meds, personally). I found no purpose and nothing made me happy, I saw no paths. I had hopes something would change but really, I realized that just kept doing what I was doing every day and nothing changed.
Have you ever committed to do something? Like in a restaurant trying to decide between two items and you tell the waiter… THIS ONE! then they walk away and you are stuck with that meal… you don’t back out when it comes to the table, you eat it even if you’re not sure that’s what you really wanted or if it’s best for you.
When I up and decided I needed a change set out looking for some way to cultivate myself. I had done research for a long time on joining the Marines (still would like to, that other path at the crossroads would have been very fulfilling too). I walked down the street and there was the Marine Recruiter and a Martial Arts school. I have ALWAYS been interested in martial arts. But I had too much anxiety to join a class.
But I committed to walking in the door and sit in on a class and ask questions… Then decided to try it for a while (it’s been a year and 6 months now).
It is an incredibly rare style and the class is taught in a very unique way (that few if ANY in the country do) with GREAT classmates and a fantastic teacher…. This style, class, teacher… it was EXACTLY and I mean EXACTLY what I was always hoping for since I was a little kid. What were the chances that I would find THE school when I truly needed it.
God may not find you in your room praying because maybe he’s left a trail out for you to find.

use to feel the same and can relate to you. I have a long story,but will only say that after I really crashed to the bottom-of-the-pit, I cried to God with my heart and I mean with all my heart. Then I started to read the bible and asking Him for mercy at anytime and from anywhere. I continued throughout the day praying. I broke down to him and told him I didn’t know anything to please direct me and guide me if it was his will, to open my spiritual eyes and spiritual ears if it was also his will. I continued asking to search my heart and my soul for wicked ways and to please make correction only if it was his will, that I would wait upon him. I always finish my prayers with praises and thanksgiving and continued reading the bible. All slowly changed while I prayed and waited upon him. We are in the last days of this world and today God is revealing a lot of mysteries from the bible. He says is Daniel:12:9 “And he says, go thy way Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”
Pray all the time from anywhere and at anytime. Don’t stop.
Also make sure you take the right medication, because there are times that you need to change the medication. Also you need to eat healthy. And take your 3 mega fatty acids with flaxseed oil and fish oils everyday this helps your brain funtion as well.

carolinagirl053

First, I would say not to feel guilty. No one can will himself to feel any particular emotion, much less happiness. Just surrender yourself to God and recognize that you can’t do it on your own. A friend of mine once reccommended that when was depressed, I should spend most of my time praying for other people, just to get my mind off myself and all the junk I was feeling. I think her words were, ” Think not what God can do for you; think what you can do for God.”
So that’s what I’d say. Surrender and selflessness.

Sam Q

Do not blame God for our inactions, he gave us everything–including freedom to choose. Many people are depressed for a lot of reason. Assess the cause of your depression. Even the best doctors cannot help you if you cannot help yourself…we have the power to heal ourselves thru Jesus. God created us equal. Try changing your diets, lifestyle, & seek professional helps…doctors, people whom you can talk to release your problems, get involve into hobby i.e arts & craft, painting, singing, writing etc. Good Luck

You must remember that He/She only heals in their time which is not the same as ours. This is for a reason, to strengthen your character. Going through the turmoil you are experiencing now is only going to make you a stronger person later on. Don’t despair, because you are learning as each day passes. What should you do? You have time, and that is a gift. You also have free will which means that you can make certain choices to influence your life. If you find or discover something that you enjoy, and immerse yourself in that to take your mind off of your circumstances. Even if it is taking a class at a community college you are interested in, turning on some great music and just dance in your living room, or go out and boogie down, the point is to do something that lifts your spirits and your heart.

God provided you with the intelligence to follow your own path. You appear to have take a route of “least resistance”, meaning, you have chosen to let yourself fail, let yourself feel sorry for your predicament in life, let yourself expect someone else to solve your problems. Praying does not solve problems by having something happen to resolve all your problems. The results of praying, is your gaining inner strength within yourself, to stand up, shrug off your “depression”, your “Lack of motivation”, “your “lack of energy”, your “shelfishness”, your “lack of control”. You expect “meds” to solve your problems. They don’t. Problems are solved by acting on them with solutions for their resolutions. If you feel abandoned, it is because you’ve turned your back on the source of inspiration, that can give you the strength to resolve your problems. God has not abandoned you, you’ve abandoned yourself. Do you want your problems to be resolved? If you do, look at who you’ve allowed yourself to become, and make a determined effort to correct what put you in that place. The inspiration to do all of this, is within you, if you want to resolve your problems, then DO SO YOURSELF! There is nothing wrong, with seeking guidance from others who have walked down the road you seem to be on. Those who have found solutions to problems like yours, are more than happy to help guide you. Do not expect them to “kiss the Boo Boo” and make everything all right. Only you can do that. An addict is an addict, until they realize what they’ve done to themselves and to others. An alcoholic can only get “dry”, when they realize that they are the one drowning themselves. Most will cite a devine inspiration, of having been “touched”, having “talked with god”, no, the reality is that they finally listened to themselves, and realized that they were killing themselves, and destroying all those in their lives that care for them. If you want to feel better, make the determined effort to make yourself feel better. Anyone can “mope and complain” about their lifes problems. The healthy, spiritual person, who cares about their own well being, is the one who can take care of themselves, help others to not be like they were, and is willing to look forward to what life has to offer. So, get off your “pitty-pot”, clean yourself up, put on fresh clothes, and go out to “smell the roses”. When you can do that, then you will see the beauty that God has provided for you. It’s up to you, not him. He allows you to live the life you choose. As you already know, the one you’ve chosen, sucks! So do something about it.

Have you ever asked the Lord into your life? I did many years ago and He has helped me and blessed me a lot. Do you read the Bible? Here are some Bible verses to look up: Romans 10:13, Romans 5:8, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, 1 John 1:9, Philippians 4:6,7; Proverbs 3:5,6. Are you attending a good, Bible-believing church where people will pray for you? I’ll pray for you.

Jessie

Deuteronomy 31:8
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
The Lord will NEVER leave you or forsake you.
I’ve been dealing with feelings like that for about two years. Get a devotional and try to do devotions daily, or weekly if your schedule is too crazy (I know how that can be :])
By reading the Word, you get closer to God. I felt so… crazy before I started reading regularly. Like I wasn’t pretty enough, or kind enough, or I wasn’t doing things right.
I know what I went through is a far cry from what you’re going through right now.
Keep praying. Sometimes, you won’t get an answer. Continue praying and reading your bible… that is where you will find peace.
Remember these:
Psalm 32:7
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
2 Samuel 22:3
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation.
He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior–
from violent men you save me.
Psalm 9:9
The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
Psalm 37:40
The LORD helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Deuteronomy 31:8
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
And finally, my favorite… Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.”
The fact is, God has your whole life planned out from start to finish. He has promises to you in the bible. He has not, and never will, forsaken you.
God bless!

Dane

If you expect God to answer your every prayer, then NO WONDER you’re feeling abandoned! What kind of faith is it if a person prays to God, and then falls apart when they don’t get any answer? You don’t have faith in God; you have faith in answers to your prayers. So then when those answers don’t come, you don’t know what to do.
Stop depending on answers. Start depending on God. Stop living your life expecting answers from God. What you need to do is start seeking the will of God. Study the Bible. Fill your schedule up with reading it. You will learn loads and come closer to God. God speaks to us through His Word.

PraiseJahYouPeople

Persevere in prayer. Stay on your medication. Associate with Christians. Never doubt God.
The Apostle Paul had a thorn in his flesh…your thorn is depression and anxiety. You will have to learn to cope with it. Eventually you will overcome it. (See 2 Cor. 12: 7)
Paul’s thorn eventually left him.

t-izzle

Get into a mental hospital. Its something we make fun of in this country, but these people are there to help people who have a problem. I’ve seen people who were depressed, and i’ve seen some of them go to these places, and now, you cant tell that they were ever depressed.
Its worth a shot…
And dont give up on your beliefs. If praying fixed every possible thing, why would anyone die? Prayer is good for your emotional health, but dont expect it to be an instant fix. Just because praying alone isnt fixing everything doesnt mean its useless to pray.

DaJackal

He hasn’t abandoned you, I’m in the same boat as you. Only it’s been over 5 years and I’ve been on and off the drugs. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t. I have my highs and lows just like you. I pray everyday and I don’t know if he’s talking to me or not. But I do know from going to Church that he only helps those who help themselves. This is no line of crap I’m telling you the truth and I don’t have an answer that will satisfy you cause I’m still looking for mine. Just take it day by day that’s all I do, some days are good and some are bad. Maybe join a depression support group who knows maybe it will work for you. You’ll never know until you try. What do you have to lose?

John D Duck? What duck?

I don’t think that there is a sentient god who is going to help you with your depression, any more than there is a god who will give an amputee a new limb.
I think you’ve taken an excellent step by seeking out medical professionals who can help you if your depression stems from a chemical imbalance. I believe that medication combined with competent therapy will be infinitely more effective than prayer.
Many Christians will very likely disagree with me. My brother the born-again tells me that I shouldn’t need to take medication to treat a chemical imbalance that has been confirmed and reconfirmed by physicians, pyschiatrists and psychologists. He thinks I should just let Jesus help me.
I have been advised to stay on SSRI’s (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors) for the rest of my life. Oddly, his wife has epilepsy and he seems to have no issue with her taking phenobarbitol all her life to control it.
Unless you agree with Christian Scientists who refuse all medical treatment and put their trust in the Lord to cure them, I think you’d do well to stick with modern medicine. Medication coupled with counseling is said to be more effective than medication alone.
The medical profession is based on sound scientific research and methods, something faith healing clearly is not. I do not disagree that there is somewhat of a placebo effect involved with thinking that prayer is going to help you, but I think that in the vast majority of cases its effect is negligible compared to competent medical treatment.
Lastly, there is a quote from Abraham Lincoln that has had a profound effect on my life. He simply said: “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be”. Relying on a god who probably doesn’t exist, at least not the way you might think he does, might be encouraging you to take less than your fair share of the responsibility for how you feel about things. It could also certainly make you feel as if you’ve been abandoned, which won’t help matters.
I do not believe you have been abandoned by “god”; please don’t abandon yourself, either. You are the one most directly resonsible for your own happiness.

Anointed by Christ

God hasn’t abandoned you. I can promise you that. I went through years of one thing after another. It seemed that I just couldn’t catch a break. Everything that could happen to me was happening. My fiance that I dearly loved walked out on me. My grades had dropped way past the point of academic suspension. Most of my friends had abandoned me for believing a lie that someone told. Nothing was going right. I was like you. I didn’t care about anything. I was resolved to the fact that nothing would ever change about my life. I was also gang raped in the midst of all of this. I truly thought, just like you, that God didn’t care about me anymore. I got to the point that I didn’t care about him either. I completely abandoned my faith and went the way of a pagan path. God didn’t abandon me, but I am positive that is exactly what I did to him.
I complained that God didn’t want anything to do with me, so I didn’t want anything to do with him. I know that things aren’t going well for you right now, and you think that everything is messed up and has no way of fixing itself. The truth is that God didn’t leave you. God didn’t leave me either. Like I said, I certainly left him. You feel as if you have no relationship with God. I didn’t either because I refused to do anything about it.
Let me explain it like this. If you were dating someone that you never talked to or learned anything about, then eventually the relationship will die. The same can be said of God. We have to work on the relationship. That’s what I wasn’t doing. I had to make an effort to ignore my emotions and do something about the relationship I had with God. I got back to going to church on a regular basis. I started to have a regular prayer life that wasn’t just about praying for my own life but also about praying for the lives of the people around me. I started to read the scriptures more than I was. When I did that, my emotions, the way that I felt was put on the back burner. Bring developing the relationship you have with God to the front. Start reading scriptures more. Find a good church where you can learn about him and worship him. Spend time in prayer and in praise each day. These are things that WILL aid your healing process. Also, you said that God healed you. Praise him for that. Ask for healing again and thank him for dealing with the situation. God is calling you to come closer to him. Don’t miss the call. For a while, I had missed that call. Don’t make my mistake. Get back into the word.
By the way, I am no longer on anti-depressants and am no longer under the treatment of any doctor about it. God has indeed healed me because I finally chose to turn and deepen my relationship with him. The same will happen to you. I promise.

Start trusting God & know He loves you.
Repent for doubting this. And also, throw out any idols in your life. And ask God to show you where you may have gone wrong.
I can feel miserable really quick if I let others sarcasm lead me to doubt Gods love for me. And so the Lord sends me the verse, “Without faith it is impossible to please God, for those who come to God must believe God Is and is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him.”. But God has said He will never leave us or forsake us. That nothing can take us out of Gods hands.
So? Even reading what you wrote. Maybe God has abandoned me… If I said or wrote that, the Holy Spirit would lead me to tears. So? I think the most important thing for you to do is repent for doubting Gods love for you. Start thanking God for Jesus paying the price for your sins. That God loves you sooo much. Start speaking life & not death. We say it, because we believe it.
I had anxiety attacks, and the Lord showed me to root of some. They were old wounds that people had wounded me with sarcasm. And when they were touched on, then I would have an anxiety attacks. It had to do with a topic of conversation. So any tramatic past moment may have wounded you. When people you care about cut you down, that wounds you. Sometimes these wounds are just hidden & covered with a pride bandage. But when the wound gets cut on, it hurts & anxiety happens.
Are you born of God? Have you confessed with your mouth Jesus Christ your Lord & Savior? Have you believed in your heart He raised from the dead? Then you are born of God & have eternal life. For with the mouth one confesses unto salvation. And with the heart one believes unto righteousness.
Then renew your mind in Gods Word. Learn who you are in Christ. Be renewed in your new born spiritman. Also, build up your faith, praying in the spirit (Praying from your spiritman, Gods Word or in a gift of the Spirit).

repent

God has not forsaken you.
In tough times I have relied on the Word of God, the Psalms of David have been very pacifying for me.
I can recall a poem I think it is called “”Footprints””
Remember ! When the Lord said “”””That was the time when I carried you”””””
Jesus said “”In the world ye shall have tribulation””
This is not an easy life.
My daughter gets depressed and dwells on herself.
Now I’m not sure if this is your problem. OK
Don’t go into yourself, have a look around you and focus on others, who could be worse off…….eg persecuted Christians.
It’s what I tell my daughter.

Dear Truth Seeker:
I wish I had an answer for you, that would make it the easier softer way. You see, I faithfully prayed one time for years… for deliverance from depression, and a hopeless marriage. I thought God had abandoned ME. But it was not until later, that I needed to commit myself to following Jesus and the Father in Heaven… before seeing true results. I actually had to get to the point where I was willing to give up absolutely everything I wanted in life, here on earth… and follow Him, no matter what… before I saw a big change. Then, I found Christian friends to be with, who prayed for me, (join a church)… and helped me become strong once again in the Lord.
God does not waiver, but we do. I wish I could help you more. But I will pray that the One who can, in accordance with the Father’s will, will bless you with complete and total surrender… as He did me. ==== In Jesus’ precious Name I pray. Amen.

Have you ever read the book of Proverbs?
I am reading Proverbs right now, and it is teaching me how to abtain God’s wisdom and knowledge, which is what we need in order to not feel the way that you are feeling….
Proverbs 1:27-
When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. 28Then shall they cal upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek early, but they shall not find me 29For they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: 30They would non of my councel; they despised all my reproof. 31Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. 32For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prsperity of fools shall destroy them. 33But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
Psalms 112:7
He shall not be afraid of ecvil tidings; his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
Proverbs 3:7-8
Be not wise in thine own eyes; fear the Lord, and depart from evil. 8 IT SHALL BE HEALTH (medicine) TO THY NAVEL, AND MARROW TO THY BONES.
