My Experience with on how to deal with depression and anxiety with medication

When I was 23 years I became depressed, I dropped out of college, I had no job but I had money. God provided, God’s favor was upon me, yes I had the expensive car, I had the luxury apartment, I had all the expensive clothes, shoes, purses or all the accessories. So Why was I so depressed? 

Furthermore, yes I had all the material things or worldly things but my life had no purpose. It was like my life was going crazy in every direction. My family turned completely against me, I had no spiritual guidance. In my heart, I knew God was my only way out but I didn’t know how to find Him. As a matter of fact, my life was falling apart, I was a young single mother, I didn’t know what I was doing with my life. All I did was cry with sorrow, my life was filled with tears, heartache and pain. Pain is all I knew so I became numb to it.

Jesus Christ Was My Only Hope

Feeling all alone, having no one to depend on, everyone was against me. Yes my natural father was there but he didn’t understand what I was going through. Not to mention, I was in a relationship with a man that I loved but I ended that relationship because of my depression and anxiety. No one understood me or knew my cry out for help! Everyone said I was going crazy, they kept trying to figure me out.

They were wondering how I had money with no job. Overall, no one tried to help me or teach me how to deal with depression and anxiety without medication. Yes I would say it’s God but they would dismiss me; simply because it didn’t make sense to them. Of course, they were so focused on traditional and religion, they didn’t believe in the Holy Spirit or the supernatural powers of God. 

My Breaking Point

Before I even realized it, depression and anxiety had taken over my life, I didn’t even know who I was anymore. On the other hand, I was a walking zombie, the only way I made it day by day was by the grace of God. Nevertheless, to say it became so bad that I’ve to commit sucide when I was 23 years old. 

Yes to the end that I allowed the spirit of sucicide to come upon me! All I remember is one night I was driving, I kept having suicidal thoughts in my mind. Then I was thinking about doing different things to end my life. In hope that my life would end, oh but Jesus intervened really quickly. For the first time in my life I heard a small still voice that said “You can’t do that, your son is in the car.”

How I found Jesus Christ?

Driving home with those same suicidal thoughts in my mind, being in God’s presence was all that I wanted. For the purpose of being near Jesus Christ, I was not about to be bound by the spirit of depression and anxiety. In order for me to deal with depression and anxiety without medication was to be delivered by the Holy Spirit. This time I tried something different, I cried out to Jesus, spoke in my Heavenly language and called out for Jesus Christ to come save me. With that in mind, all I wanted was Jesus, I seek Him like never before in my life.

A couple of minutes later, I felt someone hand touch my shoulder, it felt so calm, so peaceful and relaxing. Breaking down with tears, my bedroom became brighter, it was so clear, I knew everything was going to be okay. At that very moment, I knew it was nobody but Jesus Christ in my room. Jesus said these exact words to me, “Christy everything is going to be okay, the reason you are going through all the heartaches and pain is because you are going to spread my word through all nations to help other women.”
