Elderly Woman Shares Message On Dealing With Depression As A Christian

Esther Walker is sharing a powerful message on dealing with depression as a Christian. When we are alone or feeling down, depression can creep up on every single one of us. This elderly woman reminds us that even some of the godliest men we know, such as the psalmist David, battled with this dark illness. But even when we are in the pit of darkness, Esther reminds us that there is one thing that can save us each and every time.


“The word of God is the truth. What the light of God’s Word is their understanding of the truth. And I know in my own life, I need God’s Word like I need air. And when I’m down, I realize I’ve gotta get to Jesus and I run to Jesus because I found out no matter how old you are or godly you are or spiritual you are, you can still get down and depressed if you take your eyes off the Lord.” Esther goes on to share one of the most powerful Bible verses that she recites to herself.

Psalm 27:1 “The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?”
The overwhelming theme is that we should always run to Jesus. He is our light, our hope and our truth. This inspiring woman leaves us with the lyrics of ‘Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus’ and it’s truly a soul-shaking moment.

“Turn you eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace”
