Lighthouse 1: Giving Yourself Grace
Your mental health is connected to many things, like your body, habits, relationships, brain chemistry, experiences, and spiritual life. Mental health challenges are complex and often out of our control.
Maybe your mental health has been impacted by world events or a recent loss. Maybe you have a clinically diagnosed mental illness, and you’re trying to find lasting peace of mind. No matter what you’re going through, your mental health challenges aren’t signs of weakness.
Maybe you’ve also felt shame, sadness, and embarrassment because of your mental health. If so, you’re not alone. But here’s the thing: God isn’t mad, frustrated, or embarrassed by your mental health. Instead, He wants to help you find hope and healing.
So today, breathe and give yourself grace. Regardless of the source of what you’re facing, God is with you, and He loves you.
Pray: God, thank You for being with me when I feel lost. Please give me strength through Your grace so I can find peace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
