Is it genetic? Is it trauma induced? Is it a spiritual attack? Is it situational? Is it a chemical imbalance? Do I need medication?

These are the questions that plague people who suffer from depression. It would be easier if the answer was “yes” to only one of those questions. But usually, it ‘s a combination; it’s messier than that.

 We have an enemy who seeks to bring us down at every opportunity, so it is always spiritual.

devil, depression, 1 Peter 5:8

 Thankfully, we also have a God who can fix what is broken.

broken, brokenhearted, depression, psalm 34:18

There are doctors and counselors to help us sort through the rest.
