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.

  1. I suffer from mental illness. I have generalized anxiety, social phobia and PTSD. I rarely leave the house now because of fear. I will say though, I am happy at home spending my life with God, my husband and my mother.

    Yes, mental pain can be worse than physical pain. I’ve taken sleeping pills twice in my life. A lot of my life I’ve wanted to die. Death seems peaceful and no more pain. Still, God is helping me to enjoy life with him by my side. He has helped me by giving me ideas for hobbies and also by just enjoying his company.

    1. Thank you for sharing. There are so many people in our society that do not want to admit when they have trouble and do not seek help or share with others. I apauld you for having the courage to share your story and finding comfort in God rather than negative elements. God is truly wonderful and I pray he continues to help you. I have heard stories of how service dogs help those with PTSD and anxiety maybe it can be of help to you. Just a thought. Continued prayers coming your way.
