Mental illness is real, it’s not a joke. Never laugh at someone else’s pain. Pray for them instead. You don’t know every detail of someone else’s life, which is oftentimes why some people who appears to be happy ends their life or becomes mentally unstable. I preach “protect your peace” ALL THE TIME!
I’m constantly saying this because our minds are war ground, people! Everything that has ever happened in this world, happened with a thought! You control which thoughts to fertilize with your words and actions and you determine which ones to either cast out or uproot and kill! The only ONE who can deliver true peace of mind is Jesus, but it’s up to you to focus on God alone. Money won’t give you peace of mind.
No amount of friends or family can give you peace of mind, only Jesus can. He gives us the peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7). Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” – John 14:27
Look to Jesus, the author and perfect or of our faith (see Hebrews 12:2).
You really get to see other people’s true colors when someone else is going through a mental breakdown. So many people judge. So many people mock. So many people call those individuals crazy, but it’s our job as the body of Christ to pray, listen, understand and most importantly, love. In the end, it’s the love of God that’s going to pull the person out, just like it was His love that has pulled each and every one of us out!
Oh, if it wasn’t for the blood! 🙏🏾🙌🏾
