Serbian-Australian Christian Evangelist and Motivational Speaker, Nick Vujicic reveals how he once had a battle with a special kind of depression which he called “deep dark valley”.
Vujicic spoke with Tim Clinton, president of the American Association of Christian Counselors, during a show where he opened up about what Clinton called the “merciless bullying” and “deep depression” he faced as a child.
The evangelist said he’s “definitely not the biggest victim of bullying in the world,” but still needs the ‘beautiful Christian home’ that his parents in Australia provided to act as a refuge from what he was experiencing at school.
While sharing his view on this present generation he said these days,”the saddest moments of my life are seeing people who don’t see their value, who don’t see their potential, who believe the lies that they are ugly, or that they are a failure, or that they’ll never become someone that they are happy with..
“As strong as I am in my faith and talking to presidents about God, there are times when Nick has his ups and downs,” Nick shared
“I think it was 2011 where I went through a very deep dark valley for about two to three months, My flesh didn’t feel like God was there,” he said, noting that what he had to do was quote Scripture every hour.
“Faith comes by hearing of the Word. Keep going, one day at a time,” he advised others going through similar difficulties.
