Not long ago I did a couple of posts dealing with depression. As best I can tell, the posts were well-received.
One of the main points I wanted to make in those posts was that depression isn’t always something we can help, but something that accosts us no matter our will to be positive.
The following article, “11 Reasons Spurgeon Was Depressed,” was published by the The Spurgeon Center for Biblical Preaching at Midwestern Seminary, and I want to thank a friend of mine, Kevin Woodruff (Bryan College Librarian) for posting it on Facebook.
If you have found yourself depressed, and wonder if it’s only a spiritual matter, the following look at the great Charles H. Spurgeon, a giant among godly men, should give you hope.

Good article. Depression has always stalked me. There is hope. Sometimes there is only hope, Often someone else has to keep your hope for you and display it once in awhile just in case you want it back. The restored hope is a warm cloak of God’s amazing grace wrapped around one on a particularly cold season of life.
I was fighting it today. That’s why I posted this. Whenever I feel the devil attacking, it’s always good to turn it back around and go on the offense.
Thanks for raising an important issue so many of faith aren’t willing to discuss.

Do you struggle with depression? If so, you’re not alone. Even Charles Spurgeon, the Prince of Preachers, battled this giant. There is hope!
