Part 3 – Depression – Pastor Scotty Priest – September 22, 2019

“God lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.” Psalm 40:2 NLT

In part three of our teaching series, “You Asked For It,” this week’s topic is on depression. Depression is currently the most diagnosed and medicated illness in the world. Some stats say that 1 in 4 people battle depression, and that 1 in 5 people are on medication for it. There is no easy fix, yet there is hope.

At Journey, we believe that it’s okay to not be okay. It’s okay to admit you are struggling, are broken, and in need of help. Sickness, like depression, is not a sin. It’s a true and real battle. Have you or someone you’ve known battled depression? Have you ever felt like the Christian community has misunderstood or ignored the issue of depression?
