by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Depression and Suicide Rocketing Skyrocketing Among Women
Editor’s note: This woman Jamieson she’s quoting in the first paragraph not only believes that not being a stay at home wife and mother causes depression and suicidie, she also believes in the unscientific notion of a ‘Wandering Womb’ that will suffocate a woman from the inside. That alone invalidates anything she might have to say. I’d like to see a legitimate study from a accredited source before I would believe one word of this. Also, telling a depressed person considering ending their lives can be downright harmful. Sometimes just simply saying something supportive and non-judging is the best thing you can say to someone struggling with depression.
The reasons women are so depressed and suicidal these days are because they have lost their way and are so far from the narrow path that they are supposed to be on, thus they are left confused and depressed. How can we leave the life that our Creator created for us and expect to find satisfaction and joy? Way too many women have been raised in broken homes and/or without mothers home full time because their mothers refused to make “narrow path” choices. This is the result of feminism and lies, not from “a lack of child-care support and maternity leave, as well as male dominance in the workplace,” as Jamieson concluded.
If you were not bonded and raised with a mother full time and struggle with depression, are there answers for you? Yes! If you believe God’s Word, there are definitely answers for you, for the battle is in the mind.
If you struggle with depression, begin reading Philippians 3 and 4 every day for a month. Highlight verses that stand out, circle words that mean something to you, and memorize your favorite verses. Allow His Word to dwell in you richly. Then go to Romans 6 and 8 and do the same thing. Find out who you are in Christ, that you are dead and freed from sin, and now walk in newness of life and see that you, too, can be transformed by renewing your mind with the truth of God’s Word, just as He promises you will.
