The Journey of Depression

Depression is a universal problem and it is an ancient problem. The Bible is full of accounts of depressed and suicidal people: Elijah, Sons of Korah, Jonah, etc. Heman the Ezrahite, the writer of Psalm 88, was another one who lamented his feelings of rejection and how he felt God had let him down. His thoughts turn suicidal but he continually dialogues with God in the midst of the darkness.
