Give Me Life…

Psalm 119:37 (NLT): Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word

Life… How much do we value it? With mental health there are times where our lives seem worthless… Where we can be caught up… Or make that down… spiraling down…

Yet, God ALWAYS provides ways to halt the downward spinning… Psalm 119:37 “give me life through your word”

That pretty much sums it up…

There is a sign in our house that says “faith makes things possible – not easy”

The battle for the mind, the heart and the soul are constant… And the battle will only end the moment we see God…

Until God calls us home (note calls not us getting there by suicide)… We need to fight… fight the same way the Jesus did when He was on earth… Scripture… Reading, memorizing, growing our faith, networking with other people, attending church…

Maybe finding a Celebrate Recovery? Recovery isn’t just drugs or alcohol… It’s recovering and dealing with the hurts, habits and hang-ups we all carry with us… Nobody’s life is perfect… Celebrate Recovery has had a huge impact on my life in dealing with my mental health issues… CR is what set me on my path of healing…

Mental health illness has 2 areas of life to deal with… A physical side… Our brain chemistry isn’t correct and for some, our brain is physically different…

There is NO SHAME in needing meds to help!

Would you think any less of one who needed to take blood pressure meds or meds to control their cholesterol?

And more importantly… There is the Spiritual side… The going to God…

Is that easy? Absolutely not! Remember that this is a battle and we need God’s help…And as the verse says:

give me life through Your word…
