Burnout, Depression, and Healing: Lessons from Elijah

Feeling burned out? Elijah experienced a textbook case of depression resulting from life and ministry exhaustion. come discover God's response and the path to healing that is still used by therapists today. 

In this topic, I will cover:  

  • Elijah's thoughts and behavior that indicate he suffered from depression due to burnout. 
  • God's response which coincides with a cognitive-behavioral approach to treatment used by therapists today. 
  • how our own work, even work we do for God, can lead to burnout and ultimately to depression. 
  • how we can apply the principles God offered Elijah to restore our own mental health.       

Scripture: 1 Kings 19:1-18.
