Tell Yourself the Truth

"The main art in the matter of spiritual living is to know how to handle yourself.  You have to take yourself in hand, you have to address yourself, preach to yourself, question yourself.  You must say to your soul: 'Why art thou cast down' - what business have you to be disquieted? [S]ay to yourself: 'Hope thou in God'."  ~ Martin Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression

Believe In Forgiveness

"What I say to you in the Name of God is this:  'What God hath cleansed - by the blood of His only Begotten Son - that call not thou common or unclean'.  'The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin' and all unrighteousness.  Believe the Word of God, my friend.  Do not go on praying frantically to be forgiven that sin."  ~ Martin Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression

You May Not Understand, But You Must Trust

"Whatever your circumstances at this moment, bring all you know to be true of your relationship to god to bear upon it . . . I do not suggest that you will be able to understand everything that is happening . . . but He is there and He will never allow anything finally harmful to take place." ~ Martin Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression

Be Careful, Little Eyes

"[Peter] produced his own doubts by looking at the waves . . . Let us be very careful here.  We often lead ourselves into depression, we lead ourselves in to doubts by dabbling with certain things which should be avoided." ~ Martin Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression
