Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

I have been meditating on the above verse. I found myself asking God if we had to wait till we get to heaven before all that this scripture promises comes true. For years I have suffered from depression. I know a lot about the sorrow, pain, and crying associated with depression. I know what it is like to be hurting so bad that you feel like you can’t go on. For those who suffer from depression it’s not something that can easily be explained to others. Especially those who have never themselves suffered from it. For only those who have suffered from depression truly know what it’s like. Even though these days there are a lot if different treatments for depression, I am not sure if any of them really work. I know all the ones I tried never seemed to work. In fact most seem like they do more harm then good. However, I have found that there is hope for the hurting. If you are struggling with depression you can be set free. That freedom can be found in God. God truly can wipe away all our tears and take away all our sorrow and pain. He can do it while we are still here on this earth.
We don’t have to go to heaven for God to be able to do this. No matter how bad your situation may seem or how depressed you are, or wished to no longer be on this earth think twice. God does not want you to give up. He wants for you to turn to Him and ask for his help. For I believe only God can truly heal those who are hurting and depressed. If you have faith in God and you turn to Him, He can heal you too. As it says in Matthew 11:28 come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.
