Depression a gateway to breakthrough

One of the blogs that drops into my google reader each day is "Deadly Viper". I love their rugged persuit of being agents of God's marvelous grace.

This post about C H Spurgeon on his depression was a real different way of looking at the subject.

"Spurgeon wrestled with depression most of his life.

I love this insight from him: “This depression comes over me whenever the Lord is preparing a larger blessing for my ministry; the cloud is black before it breaks, and overshadows before it yields its deluge of mercy. Depression has now become to me as a prophet in rough clothing, a John the Baptist, heralding the nearer coming of my Lord’s richer benison.”
