This article is a portfolio of Rodney Harrier, a Christian Content and SEO writer. He creates, edits, and applies the best search engine optimization (SEO) to articles, as the screenshots with SEO reports at the end illustrate.

On this chronological Bible studies website, one of the many things he writes about are individuals suffering from depression and then offers some hope. Mental illness is just as important to understand and treat as any other affected body part. However, because of the shame associated with it, it is only in recent years that it is coming out of the closet.

He’s no expert in science and health but gives Biblical principles, applied research, and offers practical help for those who suffer and those who try to help them.

Depression is one form of mental illness stemming from various causes. However, Rodney’s family has gone through depression, so in the end, he includes a personal story that he hopes will help those who suffer and those who care for them.

Reactions to Adverse Circumstances

Depiction of Job as he sits among the ashes in his depressed state while his 3 friends debate his faults

This first Bible study is from the life of Job: Job lost his business, family, and reputation within a week. How did he react? His response is very unusual. As his friends, how should we react? Please read it here

Responding to those who Suffer

Golden Apple

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver. (Proverbs 25:11, ESV)

The second Bible study talks about appropriate words we can speak to those suffering. Ever wondered what to say? Afraid you will say the wrong thing? This Bible study will help. Read more.

The Reality of Suffering Depression

Most of the rest of Job talks about all he suffered in graphic detail, both his mental and physical suffering. Added to his pain were the insensitive, know-it-all comments of his friends. Frequently, there is no immediate fix, and the pain continues for some time. How can we endure it? How can we be true friends to those who suffer? You will find these dialogues on Days 7-15, beginning here.

Rewards for Perseverance

In the end, God straightens out Job’s thinking and rewards him for his perseverance through this severe trial. He is never told why he had to go through that. Maybe you or someone you know feels that way, too. Is there any answer? Look on Days 16-17

Depression is no respecter of Persons

Another character who suffered from mental illness (depression) was King Solomon. He had everything, but even the rich could suffer this illness. This short series begins here, with the topic, Some Causes and Cures for Depression, Day 158

Hope for the Depressed and Those Who Care for Them

The last article featured is from his wife’s experience with depression and, to an extent, she still has it. She has agreed to let me Rodney share this story to help others, and it’s called how to survive situational depression and hope for those who do.
