Senior Pastor Tommy Nelson Talks About His Depression in Detail

Senior Pastor Tommy Nelson of Denton Bible Church talks about  his experience with depression describing it as a black hole that hijacked him. His joy was gone and he had lost the ability to do the things he once loved.  During his bout of depression his wife urged him to see a counsellor and it was in seeing his counsellor that he discovered that he was burnt out and the importance of getting some rest no matter how much he loves his job.

Ps. Tommy Nelson’s Sermon On Depression

Depression is also known as the ‘Black Dog’.  If you or someone you know are going through depression seek the help of your doctor.
