Jesus dwells were mental illness cannot go.
..our inability to feel better is not a direct result of some missing prayers or lack of faith. It takes time to heal the mind.
I used to think "Why did God allow this." Evil wants nothing to do with God, and we have free will in this world. Combine evil with free will, and you get evil acts.
I walked alone that morning and prayed for tension and issues back home, and God delivered this to me, what I considered the sight of angels coming to escort me through the year. It has been just over a year now, and I can confirm that is exactly what it was.
I managed to talk myself out of the relationship we share, because after all, this world was speaking louder than my God.
I was my own interventionist when things got out of control in my adulthood. I knew there had to be more than depression or this crazy alter ego of 'sex, drugs, and rock n roll' I was living.
About now I am praying to hear His voice loud and clear, or wishing for one of those talking mirror mirror on the wall things.
If you are a Christian dealing with a mental illness, it can be difficult to look at the Word of God and believe the messages apply to you. Well, they do.
Colors of my mind.
Survival requires surrender. Surrender requires courage in letting go, and moving on. Get to know the warrior you are!
