Even when we're walking closely with God, we can still stumble and get lost in the wilderness of tangled emotions, loneliness, and depression. This study guide will teach you and your group how to embrace God's hope even when darkness is all you can see.
In this five-session video Bible study (streaming included), bestselling author and pastor Chris Hodges explores the story of the prophet Elijah to reveal how everyone is susceptible to feelings of depression. But Elijah's story reveals that we don't have to stay there! We serve a God who meets us in the darkness.

But it only took a death threat from a wicked queen to send Elijah fleeing for his life into the wilderness. And it was there that he fell into a state of depression, praying that he might die and suffering in his loneliness. . .
