Depression, Therapy & The Book of Job
When I'm depressed, and I've been depressed a lot lately, I find few things more therapeutic than discussing the Book of Job. There is something about the sense that God gives the okay to complain, that Job's cry out to God, his insistence that it is all so unfair, is a holy thing, that really lifts the spirits. Job demands that what is happening to him is unjust, and that demand is given to God Himself. This is affirmed as something pure, and holy, rightly spoken. It really gives me a boost when I'm down.
