    This song is great for inspiring others who may be down at times or struggle with a constant depression. I do feel that the video is a little “fairy tail-ish” when the girl ends up getting the guy from the meeting where she went for help. It sends the wrong message to those who are lost from struggling too long. I’ve been a Christian for over 35 years and suffered from a major Depressive Disorder since. There are times when the depression gets so dark, you can’t see clearly and something like an idea of this sort would mislead. I love the part of the video of the girl in the water, that’s amazing. I would liked to have see her break through the top of that glass like water in the pool and then go on to surf. I like the idea of the meeting and her being helped leads her to reach out to others but leave out the implied romance of overcoming depression.

    Thank you for allowing me to express my opinion. If you ever have the time, let me know and I will share some truths of what a common Christian can go through when dealing with a chronic disease of Major Depressive Disorder, PTSD and an anxiety disorder is like. I’ve had some of the best Christian Psychiatrists and Therapists out there along many denominations covering a few hospitalizations and overcoming it for MANY years.

    Because of Him,
