Mental Illness

This was put into my spirit last night and I have to post what the Holy Spirit of God asks. There are literally millions of people in this world who suffer in silence from mental illness. Still there are thousands more who will not acknowledge that they need help and seek the proper treatment. First let me assure you that it is nothing to be ashamed of and that you are definitely not alone in your suffering. This, like anything else can be managed with help from all sorts of treatment, some not including medication. God did not create you to suffer alone in the darkness. He created you a victor and not a victim! There is power in Christ and seeking His comfort for any issues including depression, paranoia, bipolar, etc... He will lead you toward the right treatment. God is not one to leave us nor forsake us as His children. He wants you to live the life that He has planned for you. Your steps are ordered and if you accept His love and help, you will ALWAYS be guided by His glory towards the best plan of action for your life.

 I know how difficult it can be to accept help, especially when you're a man. You tend the think that it is considered weak to need help, no matter how small. I applaud any man strong enough to take a leap of faith and ask God for direction with his trials and tribulation.  This is a very personal post for me, because my son was diagnosed with ADHD two years ago. He's now on medication and doing great! It has been a whirlwind of emotions and changes to adjust to his behavior. But I'm happy to announce he has been living well for over six months now. My own husband has had to battle a bout of depression and needed medication and now lives a full life walking toward his destiny without it. We were able to get him back on the righteous path that God has for him and he's no longer on medication or needing any further counseling. Your story may be different and you may need more or less to get your life back, but one thing is for certain.....ALL THINGS WORK FOR THE GOOD FOR THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD!!!!!
