However it comes, you know it. For years early in my life I suffered from this and one day as I was reading Psalm 19 it came alive in my spirit as I connected with it. As I read it and studied it I began to have faith to start walking it out then
my depression and sadness would go away as quickly as it
We need to take care of ourselves (our soul) at these times. We need to stop and begin to pray for help to Yahweh and get back into His word and walk in His paths because his instructions are perfect,( yes perfect) reviving the soul! (Verse 7) There are many helps from His word to heal us. Some of these are how to eat the foods and herbs that assist in healing, some on commandments, instructions such as rest, exercise and others.
But this scripture is wonderful to meditate on, take it apart, read each sentence slowly and carefully. See how He is perfect, wonderful, bright and beautiful, and He is your redeemer from sadness and depression if you will turn to Him at those times.
The Word of Elohim is real, living and will reach out an touch you. Read it again and again till you understand it. We need to learn healing from Him. Antidepressants do not heal you and will usually make it worse. You may need to reach out for help to one who can watch over you but definitely turn to the creator of your soul and find shalom.

For the choir director: A psalm of David.
1 The heavens proclaim the glory of Elohim. The skies display his craftsmanship. 2 Day after day they
continue to speak; night after night they make him known.3 They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. 4 Yet their message has gone throughout the earth and their words to the entire world. Elohim has made a home in the heavens for the sun.5 It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding. It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race.6 The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat. 7 The instructions of Yahweh are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of Yahweh are trustworthy, making wise the simple. 8. The commandments of Yahweh are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of Yahweh are clear, giving insight for living. 9 Reverence for Yahweh is pure, lasting forever. The laws of Yahweh are true; each one is fair. 0 They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb.11 They are a warning to your servant, a great reward for those who obey them. 12 How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults.13 Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin. 14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Master, my rock and my redeemer.
New Living Translation (NLT)
20 My child, pay attention to what I say.Listen
carefully to my words.21 Don’t lose sight of
them.Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
22 for they bring life to those who find them,
and healing to their whole body. 23 Guard your heart above all else,for it determines
the course of your life. 24 Avoid all perverse talk;stay away from corrupt speech.
25 Look straight ahead,and fix your eyes on what lies before you.26 Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path.27 Don’t get sidetracked;keep your feet from following evil.
My prayer for you is to have shalom (peace). We should not have depression as Yah children. Fight it, learn how to overcome it recognize it early and do the things He ( the Father) tells you to do. He LOVES you!! I LOVE you.
