Mental illness is such a reality of life, and for some people those two words are so taboo. The stigma attached to mental illness is based in both fear, and misinformation. I truly don’t understand why. I deal with social anxiety, and have dealt with depression quite a bit. It’s something that I can’t control, but it’s not something that I hide. It’s a daily struggle, but I have learned to trust in God during these times, and have received some comfort. While many Christians may not realize this, people regularly reach out to them because they need help in dealing with the symptoms of mental illness. As people called to spread love and hope, we must step out and offer what only the people of God can offer. Some times we might not know the correct words to say, but the Bible is a great source of encouragement. What are some of the Bible verses that can help bring comfort to those battling mental illnesses; including depression, & anxiety?
I have found comfort in the following: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”- John 14:27 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 1 Corinthians 1:3-4
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
I might not have all the answers, but I know who does. I will ALWAYS try to inspire you, and bless you. I hope that if you are suffering, you can take comfort in the Bible verses I posted. Remember, you are beautiful, you are smart, you are powerful, and you are blessed!! My goal in life is to spread love and that one day someone tells me that because of me they didn’t give up. If you are ever lonely or sad I am just a message away. Love to all of you!! #amatoencouragement
