Should a Christian ever suffer from mental illness? I can say that I am a Christian and yes, I suffer daily from mental illness. Each day I wake up and wonder, how will I be today? How will my Bipolar Depression act today? Everyday is a struggle, but everyday I try my best to feel or at least act like I’m ok. I know those closest to me see right through my act but I still press on.
When I go to work I try to listen to encouraging music and spend some time with God but that doesn’t always help. I spend most days just going through the motions without much feeling or enthusiasm. Over the years I’ve had around (are you ready for this) 50 plus jobs. Yes, I am ashamed of myself for this.
How can this be fixed? How can a person move on with their life when they can’t fix the underlying cause.
“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light”.
I am on a mission to find out the truth about mental illness and why it is so difficult to get the help we need. I too suffer from mental illness and plan on investigating and uncovering help for those who suffer in silence with me. I want to be an advocate for those who have been swept away or looked down on for having a mental health concern. Join me on this voyage and together we can make a difference.
