When you're down...

We have our times of natural sadness; we have, too, our times of depression, when we
cannot do otherwise than hang our heads. Seasons of lethargy will also befall us from
changes in our natural frame, or from weariness, or the rebound of over excitement.
The trees are not always green, the sap sleeps in them in the winter; and we have
winters too. Life cannot always be at flood tide: the fulness of the blessing is not upon
the most gracious at all times.

C.H. Spurgeon

The worst forms of depression are cured when Holy Scripture is believed.

Amen.

Linking you to Martyn Lloyd-Jones--his blog is great. Working through his book Spiritual Depression right now...
