For the Brokenhearted

 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. -Psalm 34:18-19

  There are days when I feel like everything around me is grey: like I'm living in greyscale. Nothing during those times is bright...nothing is beautiful...nothing is vibrant. I just feel...nothing and sometimes everything all at once. It's like I have a roller coaswter of emotions and non-emotions. But when these times come, it's important that I tell someone: JESUS. he knows what I go through: He comforts me and lifts up my head because He knows what it's like. He has walked by my side through the vibrant parts of my life as well as the grey parts: He will never ever leave me. That's why I still have hope even when I FEEL hopeless. 

I hope this helps anyone struggling with depression; it's a topic that can be difficult to discuss (and sometimes even embarrassing).
