Jesus Christ is the one who can heal depression and negative thoughts. Remember that Jesus feels your pain and understands you completely when you are down and depressed because He went through terrible suffering during His Passion and Death and He wants to heal you, but for that refuse to accept the devil’s lies as he is the one who wants to destroy your life, for he is the father of all lies.
See John 8: 44. Please submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you. See James 4:7-8 and read about the truth from the Bible in St. John’s Gospel – The Gospel of love.
Only listen to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, for He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. When you feel down go to Jesus and surrender to Him how you feel, and explain to Him all your problems and fears and ask Him to help you and to fill you with His peace, love and joy, and to wrap His arms of love around you. See Matthew 11:28-30.
If you feel depressed because you have been betrayed by someone, remember that Jesus understands what it feels like to be betrayed by friends. When He was arrested, His disciples were so scared that they all ran away, and He was not only betrayed by Judas, but even Peter too denied Him three times. Imagine how Jesus must have felt about that too! The Lord Jesus’ love is greater than any kind of suffering because whenever we suffer Jesus experiences our distress too. We just have to ask for Jesus’ help and trust in Him. Jesus is our Saviour and best friend who holds us by the hand, and He is always by our side every moment of the day. All our suffering melts in Christ’s love. If only more people would understand how much Jesus loves us with unconditional love.
Spend some quiet time with Jesus to have a personal intimate relationship with Him and read your Bible and sing songs of praise and worship which you can even find on YouTube. When you sing to the Lord you feel uplifted and also memorize Bible verses that raise your spirits, and keep telling Jesus that you love and trust Him, and that He is everything to you.
Read the following scripture in Psalm 22, Isaiah 53 and Luke 22: 1-24.53. Remember that Jesus is the friend who is by your side every moment of the day and you are the apple of his eyes.
Dear Lord Jesus Please cover the people who are depressed with your Precious Blood and wrap your arms of love around them, and help them to lean totally on you to overcome their depression, and fill them with faith, peace and joy and help them trust in you to uplift them, and to make them whole. Amen.
