When You Feel All Alone
Depression is a lonely road. When you struggle with depression and anxiety, you feel isolated and afraid. You despair that you will never feel better and life will always be this bleak. The world seems to go on around you while you stay stuck.
You know the Bible offers hope and comfort, but sometimes even God feels too far away. Then you feel guilty and wish your faith was stronger.
I have struggled with seasons of depression, panic, and anxiety. I’ve gone through times when I thought I would drown in grief and sadness.
I knew there were tangible things I could do to feel better, but getting up the motivation to do them simply seemed impossible. I just could – not – make – myself – get – going.
Can you relate?
How to Feel Better Fast from Depression
You are not alone.
You are not stuck.
While depression is real (and we encourage you to seek help from a medical professional), the spiritual attack is also real. Your enemy, Satan, does all he can to keep you stuck in lies, doubts, and circular worry.
You can take your thoughts captive to obey Christ and feel better. This isn’t a magical solution, but it is a path to managing your thoughts, which will change your feelings and your actions. Most of all, slowly day by day you will grow in faith and learn to trust God more with your wellness journey.
What The Hope Toolbox Will Do for You
As I began to heal from depression, I wanted to help other people who were struggling. I remember the deep, dark pain that depression brought into my life.
Depression felt like a downward spiraling vortex that I would never get out of.
Yet hope is available! I researched what practical steps were possible for people with depression to feel better. I understood that these needed to be the most tiny, itty-bitty baby steps toward light and healing.
I created The Hope Toolbox to give you realistic, practical strategies that actually work. Each step is based on Biblical truth AND what science shows us helps people make steady improvements.

By using The Hope Toolbox Printable Kit, you will:
- See immediate results. Research shows people who kept a daily gratitude list made significant changes. A study of several hundred people found that those who kept a very simple gratitude list reported levels of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, optimism, and energy. In addition, they experienced less depression and stress, were more likely to help others, exercised more regularly, and made greater progress toward achieving personal goals. (Michael McCollough of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, and Robert Emmons of the University of California at Davis)
- Deepen your faith life. With this toolkit, you will write down meaningful Bible verses that resonate with you. Hang them in places you will see them every day, like on your bathroom mirror, in your car, and in your kitchen. I’ve been doing this for years now and it makes a tremendous difference. (Mine are stuck on my kitchen cabinets right now.)
