Today is World Mental Health Day. I am grateful for the hope that I have in Christ and for family and friends who encourage me when I need it most. My mental wellness is a daily battle but thank God, I’m not alone.
I still believe that the Church needs to do better in ministering to those who struggle with their mental wellness. And as God opens the doors, I resolve to speak out on this because I don’t think that Christians hear from their leaders nearly enough that it’s okay to struggle with mental wellness and still be a Christian.
I cling daily to one of my life verses:
Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” – Psalm 126:5.
