Hi ramen,
Praying for you now, that God deliver you from the grip of this depression. Believe, and He will too!
Personally, i'd say i sang my way out of it, no, not in a day, but a few yrs in fact. We are told, if anyone is sad, let him pray... but i wanted to sing more (or at least listen to others sing when i couldnt personally), then realized there is also prayer in singing to the Lord. God bless!

You might consider going into the live chat room and hanging out and making some friends.

I don't think there's an age restriction in there... not positive though.

Pray when you're afflicted (James 5:13)

Always have faith because you will stand as Paul mentioned in 2nd Corinthians Chapter 1.

You will know that you have faith in Jesus by reading Mark 11:23-24.

please read the verses I posted here brother.

I myself is struggling of depression but with the words of God in my heart, I never resorted to suicide or taking illegal drugs to forget problems.

but still the question remains, Did God abandon me or just testing my faith and perseverance?

the reason why some of the wishes I asked to Him is not yet granted.

these are being financially independent, having gadgets I want through my hard work and having a diligent, prudent and wise wife.

I wonder if I am still being punished and it is still not over.
