Episode Summary:

Nobody is immune to depression. Even a seasoned neuropsychologist treating patients with a wide range of medical health issues can fall prey to depression. Join me as we shatter myths and offer powerful insights to help defeat depression by addressing the spiritual roots of disease. #replay

 

Quotables from the Episode:

  • If you were at a restaurant having dinner with some folks, if you stretch out your arms, you would be able to reach somebody who’s been impacted by depression.
  • If we don’t treat this disorder, it truly is a deadly condition. Every year, over 45,000 people die by suicide.
  • Unless we’re willing to address the spiritual roots of disease, it’s like putting a band-aid on an infection and hoping it’ll get well.
  • Anxiety is a misappropriation of our attention. It means that we are looking somewhere other than God.
  • The enemy destroys our view of ourselves, and part of the way that he does this is first by tempting us to do that which we already know is wrong.

Scripture References:

  • Ephesians 6:12: “We are not fighting against flesh and blood armies, no, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers of the dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”
  • John 10:10: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. But I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.”
  • Isaiah 26:3: “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you.”
  • Romans 8:1: “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
  • John 15:11: “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”
  • Psalm 30:5: “Weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.”
