(Forgive me, but this is a big deal to me.)
“You may be a Christian struggling with deep hurt right now, and yet you may feel like you’re surrounded in The Church by nonstop joyfests, filled with nothing but catchy songs, cheerful potlucks, and the endless praise reports of answered prayers and overcome demons.
That is simply not the truth.
In fact, the reason it so often feels that way, is because so many around you are also in the closet. We too have been taught, that depression and faith are incompatible (by those who’ve apparently never read about Moses, the prophets, David or the disciples), and they now believe that admitting anxiety somehow disqualifies them from discipleship.”
