“The devil is deceptive. He does not usually arrive with fanfare, pomp, and circumstance. Imperceptibility is his aim: smoke and mirrors, facades, lighting, sound effects, gentle music. He is after you. He doesn’t want to merely discourage you, he wants to destroy you.”

The above quotation comes from a devotion I read this morning. It talks about depression and the feeling you’re battling for your life. Those of us with mental illness are battling both the Devil and our own natures. God gives us the tools to win the battle. Meds, psychiatrists, counselors, but most of all faith. Faith that we can win. Faith that Jesus loves us regardless of our sins or separation from him during the depths of depression.
