Symptoms of depression healed

For many years I suffered from symptoms of depression. Sometimes it took enormous effort to get out of bed in the morning, and the daily tasks facing me seemed overwhelming to the point that I frequently was incapacitated and couldn’t seem to accomplish anything productive in my day.

My growing understanding of these lines of Scripture was very helpful to me as I prayed about this situation, and this understanding ultimately brought about the healing: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:26, 27).

During this period, I did some in-depth study of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy—the textbook of Christian Science—for a purpose seemingly unrelated to my efforts for healing in this case. As I did, I discovered that these two verses in Genesis are frequently referenced in the textbook.
