Question:I have gone from the a motivated, enthusiastic, happy go lucky person to a depressed, fearful wretch and cannot seem to recover. I know you will tell me to seek professional help, which I am. I see a doctor and am on medication. I search the Internet and read the Bible every day. What can I do to get myself back to normal? If nothing else, please pray for me!
Answer:Since it doesn't appear to be medically based if you are seeing a doctor, then I would assume it is your attitude toward life which has changed. What happened to shift your view of the world? Too many people allow external events to shape their moods. Instead we should learn to find contentment no matter what life throws our way. "Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:11-13).
