“Deep change is rarely a matter of knowledge. It is a matter of repentance. We have chosen a path apart from God; repentance is the process of turning back. We have chosen a different story, filled with subtle lies about God, questioning His love, care and compassion. Repentance means to renounce our story and believe that there is only one Storyteller. God alone is authorized to interpret our lives. Hope will only grow in the ground of humility.” -Edward T. Welch

Because mental illness is an illness and not a sin, it can be easy to feel helpless in the battle and like the victim. But a body struggling with physical difficulty, as well as a mind struggling to find joy and hope, can easily be enticed and dragged away by subtle lies before it even realizes how far it’s drifted.

Join me today in saying “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way” (Psalms‬ ‭139:23-24‬‬‬). Believing truth in a mind that is foggy and hurting can seem impossible, but praise God that nothing is impossible for Him!

Depression and faith can coexist.
