It’s simply the result of uncertainty, and the bible teaches the idea that uncertainty is, essentially, distrust with the plan of God.

Does God put someone on your mind?
It’s pretty cool because when that happens (a picture of someone pops into your mind or you are reminded of them or you have them on your heart) it’s usually God reminding you of that person for a reason. He is also drawing you into a conversation with Him (prophecy and intercession).
What is the primary cause of depression?
There’s no single cause of depression. It can occur for a variety of reasons and it has many different triggers. For some people, an upsetting or stressful life event, such as bereavement, divorce, illness, redundancy and job or money worries, can be the cause. Different causes can often combine to trigger depression.

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?

That verse expresses true sorrow from the heart of God. Even before God became man, it’s clear throughout the Old Testament that God feels sorrow, even weeps for the crushing blows of His people. If we are made in the image of God and we feel sorrow and cry, then I believe that God does too.
