HOLISTIC CHRISTIAN DEPRESSION TREATMENT LESSON 7 MEDICAL THERAPY & BIBLICAL THERAPY

MEDICAL THERAPY FOR DEPRESSION
Christian Meditation
Studies suggest that meditation may be beneficial in managing depression and since it is also a very effective relaxation technique, create time to meditate within your heart on your bed and be still. (Psalm 4:4)

Spend around 30 minutes each morning or evening meditating on or focussing on and believing positive Scripture so that you can evict all negative depressive thoughts from your mind. If your mind wanders, gently return it to the Scriptures.

You can meditate on Scriptures such as:
a. God is near to those who have a broken heart (Psalm 34:18) and He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3)

b. I shall weep no more (Isaiah 30:19) because though Weeping may endure for a night season, joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5) and The days of my mourning shall be ended. (Isaiah 60:20)

c. I shall obtain joy and gladness because and sorrow and sighing shall flee away (Isaiah 35:1-10) for The Lord will comfort (insert your name), He will comfort all my waste places, He will make my wilderness like Eden and my desert like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.  (Isaiah 51:3)



Listen to Christian meditation CDs to manage depression.




BIBLICAL THERAPY FOR DEPRESSION
Examine yourself
 When Jeremiah was depressed and he lamented that his soul had sunk within him, (Lamentations 3:20) he saw the importance of self examination for he said, “Let us search out and examine our ways and return to the Lord.” (Lamentations 3:40)

Therefore, create time for self examination to identify where you may have turned from the straight and narrow path so that you can return to the Lord.



ACTIVITIES
1. Spend around 30 minutes each morning or evening meditating on and believing positive Scriptures.

2. Schedule 15 minutes  before your meditation sessions to cross-examine yourself and correct any wrong motives so that you can return to the Lord.
