Hey guys--right now I am working my way through the Gospel of Luke. Happy Saturday & God bless!
How are you doing, NewTestamentMemorizer? You're in my prayers!
It's fine. :)

To be honest, AZIL2, it was somewhat funny to post your comment 5 times.
Me too. I hope you get through this hard time in your life.
Alaska.org, Oh, that's so sad! :( I will definitely be praying for you!!!!!
I'm going through something similar My dad is moving away and I am greatly depressed. I'm praying for you!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, I just sent the same comment 5 times. Oops! :D
How is it going for you, NewTestamentMemorizer? I'm still praying for you!
Are you still doing good?
That's great! I will pray for continued healing for you!
Yay! Nothing is impossible when we work together with God.👨👧👦
I am doing a little better! I am still having a hard time, but I am no longer thinking of suicide. Thank you so much for your support! Once I have the spiritual strength again I will continue my memorization plan!
Hi NewTestamentMemorizer, Just checking in. How are things going for you! You are in my prayers!!!
@NewTestamentMemorizer I will pray for you! We all really hope that you will win this fight against depression!
Hey newtestamentmemorizer, we all feel for you here and a lot of people have been there. We don't know exactly how you feel, this is your own life, but we can try to support. For me when I'm down and depressed I have to get out and do some thing, Physical, around people, active. Any thing that is fun and free. Like basket ball, playing cards, even chess, the little things that make you feel a little good can start your mind turning around to a better place. Keep talking and don't give up.
Thank you, please keep praying. I realize that the reason I'm feeling this way is because I no longer have self-worth like I once had, no vision for the future and no care about my life. I must get back in that mindset somehow, otherwise I'll have to drop out of school, and my family will suffer from that, and by then I will take my own life. It feels so hopeless....I wish I never had to feel like this! I feel like I'm drowning in this life! :_(
Hi New Testament Memorizer. I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you daily. May God bless you and fill you with His peace!
I echo all the comments which have been made. I've appreciated your friendship here, New Testament Memorizer.
Why don't you try this. Reading these verses helped me so much!https://learnscripture.net/verse-set/commitment-set-of-one-liners/
That is so sad! I know what you are in, because I just left a phase just like that.
Thank you so much everybody. I will definitely learn those verses on my separate LearnScripture account that I use for school and other verses that are not part of my plan. Even though I feel very suicidal throughout most of the day, I will still try to put my trust completely in God and Jesus Christ, that he will make everything OK again. Yes, if I am made to believe that my depression will eventually (or very soon) go away and not come back, it will definitely help me. I'm just so worried when I see other people online who have been depressed for many, many years, and that is a big part of what's making me feel suicidal. Please keep praying for me, that this will all be over as soon as possible, and that I can go back to normal before I quit my entire life altogether :|
Here, I put together some verses that I are encouraging! Hope this helps! Praying for you. https://learnscripture.net/verse-set/verses-for-when-you-are-sad-or-depressed/
NewTestamentMemorizer, You will be in my prayers!!! So sorry!!!!!!!!
So sorry to hear how you’ve been feeling NewTestamentMemorizer. Can I just say Amen to everything spookylooky has advised you. That is sound advice. I’ll be praying for you that you will get help soon. I wish I could write to you privately but obviously that’s not possible.
Hi NewTestamentMemorizer - I'm the webmaster here on LearnScripture. I'm really glad you felt you could share your problems with the community on this website.
If you are feeling depressed, especially if you have thoughts of suicide, it's really important that you also share these things with your real life community, and particularly your parents and family, or another trusted adult, or people qualified to help with depression, like doctors. Depression is called a mental illness for good reason - it's not just a spiritual matter. And God has put other people around us, and given us doctors etc., because He wants to help us through them.
Thanks you guys. I will try to be happy once again.
That's rough, especially for someone so young! Stay in there, stay strong! Keep pursuing the Lord even in the midst of the depression. Psalm 23 can be a great comfort.
"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."
May God comfort you in this time of darkness. May He remind you that He is always with you, even when you doubt.
I am so sorry! "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that by the power of the holy spirit, you may abound in hope!" (Romans 15:13)
Hi everyone. It is about time I tell you what has been happening to me. I'm sorry to say that the answer is depression. DEEP DEEP depression. It's the worst thing I have ever been through and I just don't feel appreciation or joy in anything. I think and really hope that it's just a phase I'm going through since I just turned 14 years old, or it's probably the devil majorly attacking me for trying to step out in my faith. My life is now a hopeless prison to me and suicide is often on my mentally ill mind.
As for God, I still love him as much as I can love, and if I don't die from this depression, I am still definitely doing the New Testament Memorization Plan, but I am not motivated enough and not spiritually able to do it now. In my mind there is hope for me, but my coldhearted feelings tell me that there is not.
On the plus side, I love how this group is growing with Christians who are still on fire for the Lord, and I praise you for your character. I am asking intently for your prayers, because very little people understand what I am going through right now. Please pray for me :(Today I am going on a Soul-winning Mega Marathon with my family and friends, and I hope that maybe the Holy Spirit will once more decide to indwell in me and I can see life the way I should really see it. And tomorrow is Easter Sunday. Please pray for me, and maybe this what-should-be-exciting weekend will give me the light once again to have spiritual zeal for the Lord Jesus Christ.God bless :)
Hey! I just wanted to say good luck to all of you, as you study God's Word!
