All Christians and everyone in general will go through stuff because this is life, just because we give our life to Christ doesn’t mean that all of our problems just go away. The Bible states that we must pick up our cross everyday and to live for God and not for ourselves. (Luke 9:23-24 is Jesus continued to say to all of them “Any of you who want to be my follower must stop thinking of yourself and what you want. You must be willing to carry the cross that is given to you everyday for following me. Any of you who try to save your life will lose it. But you who give up your life for me will save it.”) the cross can be so hard and so heavy but we must remember that we are living for him and not ourselves and we need to trust that he will take us out if our situation when it’s in his will and time ☺️

Sometimes there can be underlying health issues causing the depression; for example, hormone issues/menopause, thyroid problems, unknown parasite infections, anemia etc.
It’s good to keep asking the Lord for help, with everything that we face and then to trust Him.
I am reminded of the woman who only touched the tassel of Jesus clothing and she was healed, and we only need to connect with Him and He will lead us if we seek Him whole heartedly with a willingness to obey Him about whatever He shows us.
Hope this helps someone x
