Jesus Christ came to dispel all darkness. He is “the light and life of the world” ( 3 Nephi 11:11 ) and “a light that shineth in a dark place” ( 2 Peter 1:19 ). He wants to help you. The Savior said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” ( Matthew 11:28 ). Depression may be a continual struggle, but Christ’s promises are real: “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you” ( John 14:18 ). He perfectly understands because He took upon Himself the “pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind” for “ every living creature, both men, women, and children” ( Alma 7:11 ; 2 Nephi 9:21 ; emphasis added). Jesus Christ knows what depression feels like, and He knows what your depression or your friend’s depression feels like. With the Savior‘s help, you can come out of the darkness of depression and see more of the good that is around you.
