Mexican-American musician Carlos Santana revealed how believing in Jesus Christ helped him to overcome the chains of depression. When his wife Deborah left him after 34 years of marriage, suicidal thoughts haunted Santana. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he admitted he attempted suicide seven times. It was only through God’s grace that his life was spared, he said.
He explained going to a local church, hearing accusing voices saying his life was very miserable. But it was Jesus’ voice that gave him hope to live and brought him renewed joy that he never found in music.
