“Is there a link between depression and spirituality?” (Free Download)
Depression and spirituality has a greater connection than our modern world would like to admit. As we’ve mentioned before, there are three main causes of depression: lack of physical health and lack of emotional health are the two most widely understood. But the third cause has been under acknowledged. It is the lack of spiritual health. Depression and spirituality has a forgotten link that reveals a powerful secret.
In just a moment I have a free report for you that goes into greater explanation, but first I will introduce the medical research on this...
The Journal of The World Psychiatric Association records that...
Dr. Bill Gillham writes about the secrets on depression and spirituality…
Basically you have a 5% chance that you are suffering from depression because of a physical illness and a 95% chance that you are suffering from a link of depression and spirituality - a lack of spiritual health.
I’d like to share with you my own experience of depression and spirituality and what it took to overcome my depression. I’d like to share with you some simple steps you can follow too.
But, first Joe, a former depression sufferer writes…
“Are you saying my depression is because I don’t have a close relationship with God?”
We are created to have a relationship with God, and so depression and spirituality is definitely a third option you need to consider. If you are physically and emotionally taking care of yourself (such as our handbook explains) and you are still suffering from depression, you may be suffering from isolation from your loving Creator. (You’re not the only one…)
Author Donald Miller puts it wonderfully like this:
The answer to depression and spirituality problems…
You are created to know God and so a life without him is an empty and lonely life. Simply, it is a depressed life.
Even if you’ve read our free e-course, you’ve already begun to learn about the physical and emotional cures for depression.
For curing the third cause of depression: depression and spirituality – you must draw near to your loving Creator.
Consider these words penned by King Solomon of the East around 700 B.C…
King Solomon was once recorded to have been the richest man in the world and despite his riches; he learned that if he did not draw near to God, all his wealth could not bring him happiness. Depression and spirituality was linked back in 700 B.C!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful, if you could just take your depression and put it in someone’s hand and be done with it? Wouldn’t be wonderful if it was that easy?
God has always offered to us an abundant life of love, joy and peace and yet we have this notion that we can do this living thing on our own strength.
Do you need strength?
Learn how depression and spirituality has the most common connection and yet our world fails to recognize this. Then draw near to God who promises to strengthen us during times of depression and wants to give us peace and joy…
“So, how do you draw near to God and allow him to change your life?”
Below you can access the free report where I share with you how depression and spirituality was a link in my own life and how asking God to restore my health and drawing near to him has made all the difference.
