Dealing with Depression

I deal with depression from time to time with severe disabling results.  I find prayer and reading my Bible very helpful.  Does anyone have favorite parts of the Bible they are willing to share.  I also am responsible for sending cards to people in my church that are sick, depressed, stressed or mourning the loss of a loved one.  Anything shared with me personally might be used on a card if I think it might be appropriate or helpful.  Thank you for your input.

I like "For this too shall pass."  I'm not sure where its located, but i love that verse.  Because no matter how hard it gets, it will always pass.  I enjoy reading the bible because its good, and it makes me feel studious.

Hello. I particularly like the proverbs, as they are a guide to a rewarding life. Since there are 31, I try to read the one that corresponds to the date, I.e. Reading the first one on the first day of the month, the second one on the second day of the month, etc. Best wishes, GM
