Some quotes from the Bible I found about people who were depressed and also some comfort that the pain will pass....
Job 7:15-16 -> I would rather be strangled-rather die than suffer like this. I hate my life and don't want to go on living.
1 Sam 16:14 -> Speaks about Saul's dark mood
1Kings 19:3-4 -> Elijah was afraid and fled for his life..He sat down under a solitary broom tree and prayed that he might die.
John 12:27 -> Now I am deeply troubled and I dont' know what to say. But I must not ask my Father to keep me from this time of suffering . In fact I came into the world to suffer.
2 Corinth 7:6 The God who lifts up the downcast lifted our heads and our hearts with the arrival of Titus
Psalm 42:11 -> Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise HIm again - my saviour and my God!
Psalm 34:18 -> The Lord is there to rescue all who are discouraged and have given up hope
Isiah 9:6 -> Darkness and despair will not go on forever....The people who walk in darkness will see a great light.
