Q&A: Getting Out of Depression without Medication
Q: What are ways to get out of depression without medication?
A: My answer is [through music]. I sing a little tune to the Lord and, it doesn’t matter if you’re a singer. That helps get you out of depression, if you try it. You can tell people to pray, but I’ve heard people say, “I’ve prayed, and prayed with no results.” But, according to the scripture, we are told to sing spiritual songs and uplifting songs (Collosians 3:16).
The scripture speaks about laughter as medicine (Proverbs 17:22). With my son, he listens to music or watch humorous programs because he experienced depression as a child.
As Christians, we definitely have to know how to deal with depression, because that spirit will try to come on us too.
