remedy for despair
“Fits of depression come over the most of us.
Usually cheerful as we may be,
we must at intervals be cast down.
The strong are not always vigorous,
the wise not always ready,
the brave not always courageous,
and the joyous not always happy.”
- C.H. Spurgeon
“The depressed don’t simply need to feel better.
They need a Redeemer who says,
'Take heart, my son, my daughter;
what you really need has been supplied.
Life no longer need be about your
goodness, success, righteousness, or failure.
I’ve given you something
infinitely more valuable than good feelings:
your sins are forgiven.'”
- Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
