Jello in a Cannon

At times it seems that having mental health issues consumes me… And I need to step back…

Mental health definitely plays a major part in my life… When at its peak it does effect all areas…

Physically I’m exhausted and ache all over… Getting out of bed to get a drink of water or an effort of being Wonder Woman… Don’t even ask about showers or eating properly…

Mentally it seems like fireworks are bouncing around and finding the strength to find Bible verses is incredibly hard {see previous paragraph}

Spirituality it’s a battle ground… The thoughts… It’s easy to say “control your thoughts” but unless you’ve been there to get control is like using Jello in a cannon to stop the fireworks…

Isaiah 64:8 NIV Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.

My hope, my only way out is through God… Until I turned to God, Jello was all I had and it wasn’t doing squat…

Turning to God meant that I gave control to Him… I let Him start to mold me…

It wasn’t instant… And He’s still working on me but I have battle plans and an army of scripture to use… Sometimes I don’t even realize a battle has begun for a while… Spy’s have been poking and messing around..

Even when I realized the fireworks were happening I would still allow sparklers to fizzle away…

But slowly overtime I’ve been able to recognize this more and use proper tools for battle…

These are some I have gathered and use:

  • Phil 4:4-8
  • 1 Tim 1:12
  • 2 Cor 4:16-17
  • 1 Col 2:19
  • Isa 41:10
  • John 14:27–28
  • Psalms 9:9
  • 1 Thes 5:5
  • 2 Cor 4:6
  • Isaiah 59:21–60:1
