Try Something New Tuesday – Let God Work Through You!

When the time is right, I, the Lord will make it happen.    Isaiah 60:22

Happy Tuesday!  One problem that is prevalent in our society and  depending upon where you live, may not be addressed adequately, is mental illness.  Mental anguish can be just as painful, if not more painful, than physical pain.  Some of the nicest people I have known have committed suicide, thinking whatever they were facing was too difficult to handle.  In addition, there are people living in deplorable conditions due to the need to collect and hoard trash from dumpsters.  I see it every day with my work.  There are others who don’t have proper hygiene. Finally, just about everyone I know has suffered from depression from time-to-time.  While there may not be much you can do, and if you are not a professional, you have to be careful in how you deal with these people, you can let them know that they are loved by God.  You can also email your representatives and let them know that there needs to be more funding for mental health in the future.  Finally, let them know you care, and try to help them to obtain the professional care they need.

So, today I challenge you to let God work through you.  Join me in making a difference for those suffering from mental illness.  God bless you.
