Today's guest on The Tom Roten Morning Show, Dr. David Murray, was very insightful on an often ignored topic - depression. Specifically addressed was the question, Do Christians get depressed too?
Dr. Murray has put together a wonderful video series, available to watch for free, on this important subject.
You can watch the videos in five short segments here:
This series of films from HeadHeartHand Media presents five Christians with five very different stories of depression and of how God gave them hope and help to recover. Each 35-40 minute episode tells the story of one such Christian. Their reflections are intercut with interview footage from six counselors representing a wide range of Christian knowledge and experience. While the pain of depression is evident, the overall tone is hopeful and practical.
We’re convinced that this holistic and biblical approach to depression will equip churches to minister to depressed Christians with greater understanding, compassion, and effectiveness. The unique combination of narrative and teaching will be a great resource for any individual, family, congregation, or small group, and will serve as a helpful supplement to the book, Christians Get Depressed Too.
Listen to my interview with Dr. David Murray...
Dr. Murray gives great Biblical insight into dealing with depression. He urges Christians not to dwell on the past or stew over things that have gone wrong in our lives.
Rather than think on things that bring us down, the negative, we should think on what the Bible says to think on in Philippians 4:8...
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
