Have you ever known or seen a depressed Christian woman? What does/would she look like or appear to be?
She’s the one you admire most when you think of “being together.” She’s always happy, always has just the right thing to say when you’re down. She has a scriptural reference and application to any situation you might be in.
And when it comes to joy… you never see her without it. And it doesn’t get any better when you take a look at who stands beside her… it’s your pastor or another perfect Christian man that she’s married to whatever the case may be.
Unfortunately, this may be what you see, but it might not be the truth. Of the Christian women that I work with, the statistics I gather suggest that 89 percent of these women are suffering from an extensive level of depression. To me, this sad situation of the depressed Christian woman alarms me. Perfection as a goal for life doesn’t work.
