Cutting and Depression is affected by Spiritual Warfare August 30, 2016, As I continue to grow in my relationship with Jesus I learn new things daily. Part of this season that I am in comes with a focus on deceptions I have believed. And a greater awareness of the spiritual battle all around me. When I was in my worst depression I said to myself and to others that “I am in the fight of my life and I can’t afford to lose.” That was true then. I find it even truer now. God is revealing that I am still in the fight of my life and I still can’t afford to lose.
