Do Christians get Depressed? You Better Believe It!

Can a Christian get depressed? Yes, me for one!

What, not "happy, happy, happy all the time, time, time"? No. God never promises that in the Bible. Everyone, regardless of their beliefs, is to some extent bruised and broken by the historic space-time fall, with its cursing of every aspect of life. See The Glory, Dignity and Dislocation of Man

My own experience of depression opened my eyes

to the number of people in the Bible who suffered it too. Here are some:-

There can be substantial healing here,

but not, I think, 100%. Not yet. But those who cast themselves upon Jesus will be healed at the last; "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." Revelation 21:4

A Bruised and Broken Christian...

  A bruised and broken Christian is 'bout all you'll ever find
  The wounds you carry may run deep, and healing takes some time
  But be assured that you are loved 
  As sure as you are here
  As sure as Jesus died for you 
  As sure as heaven's near
  ...and hope is anchored in your soul as you behold the Son
  Who went before you in your place and waits for you to come
         (from the "Song for the Wealthy Beggar", by Ruth Buchanan)
