Jackie’s Story

/ Stories

“When depression hits, you don’t know what you want—other than that feeling to be gone.”

Jackie had struggled with depression a few times during her life, but never like this. Her marriage was unsteady, her financial situation was uncertain, and through it all, she felt as though she couldn’t feel God at all anymore. Even simple moments of happiness, like walking her dog beside the beach, no longer brought her joy.

When Jackie started reattending her Life Group, the pastor of the group began reaching out to her daily. The pastor sent Bible verses, prayers, and most importantly, reminders that God was right beside her, even though life felt impossible. Slowly but surely, Jackie began to experience the presence of God again.

Check out how Jackie rediscovered God’s presence and experienced true joy, even in a season of depression.
