i think you should seek proffesional help. God is good but there are certain things that are more suitable for a doctor to help with

I read this & thought about you! Just a simple change in your thinking may be what you need to overcome your sadness.

Devotional:
Have you ever felt insecure? Insecure about your abilities, your appearance, your job, your personality, your life? Have you ever felt unloved and worthless? "I'm not attractive." "I'm not good enough!" "Nothing good ever happens in my life." "I'm a failure."
If your mind is filled with thoughts of worthlessness, shame, embarrassment and low self-esteem, then it's time to get rid of that insecurity!

"How can I get rid of insecurity that's been there my whole life?" By realizing that YOU are God's most prized-possession! If God had to choose the finest thing He ever created - He'd say YOU! Yes, you! You are somebody special to God.

Those thoughts and feelings are lies from the devil aimed at getting you so down on yourself that you will never experience God's best for your life. You'll always feel that you're "just not good enough" so why would God want to bless you? God does not have one child who is not good enough to receive His love.

Low self-esteem is a result of a lack of knowledge. The reason so many Christians live way below their privileges as a child of God is because they don't know that they are highly favored of God.

In Psalm 8:3-5, the psalmist is reflecting on the greatness of God and writes, "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained: What is man that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour."

In this particular scripture, the psalmist is overwhelmed at just how marvelous and magnificent God is and His ability to create the universe. Have you ever just stopped and looked around at God's creation? Just go look at the Grand Canyon some time. It's overwhelming. We get so accustomed to the things around us, but if you take the time to just look at the sky or the sunset and think that God created that - it's amazing!

The psalmist is saying, "Lord, You're so magnificent and creative, why would You have anything to do with man? Why did You create man?" And the Lord is saying that you are His most prized-possession! In fact, in the mind of God, you are His prized-possession above the stars, above the moon, above the heavens, above all His handiwork.

Just like an artist with all the wonderful, creative pieces he designs, there's always this one prized-possession. That's the way God feels about YOU!

Make sure you make an appointment with someone like a psychologist,  that can help you. There maybe someone underling issues that must be dealt with. And don't give up God blessSmile

Well first you have to figure out what is making you depressed or anxious and try to the best of your ability to connect that with the scriptures to get your spirit cleansed and have proper understanding.

For example, someone may be depressed because they have been let down by their friends or family. So what you do is go to the scriptures that talks about the tumults that righteous people will have even with their friends and love ones in these last days and get understanding on how to overcome itSmile.

When it comes to reading scriptures for edification (correction) and being uplifted (sense of happiness and hope), you first need to understand the will of The Most High. The biggest mistake people make when it comes reading the scriptures and then praying for their inflictions to be healed is that they don't understand how the LORD works. Then when things don't go their way or happen fast enough, they get upset and walk away from the LORD all together...

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
(Proverbs 3:5)

Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way? (Proverbs 20:24)


Endurance is another thing that people don't talk about or like to sweep under the rug. Those who are spiritually weak are not trying to endure and stay in the faith. Those are the same people who look for fast results (like Xanax) or the results that may not necessarily be the best for them. You have to be willing to be patient and endure until your inflictions are done away with. You also have to be willing to be healed not only in the flesh, but in the spirit as well.

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope:And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. (Romans 5 3-5)

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12 1-2)
