Healed of bipolar disorder

As a kid, I lived for the excitement of Little League baseball. I loved the anticipation of pitching for my team and the determination it took to win. I never could have imagined that as a teenager I would be wishing life was like a light switch that I could just turn off.

Today, I often think about one of my favorite passages in the Bible, from the book of Galatians: “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would” (5:16, 17). I am grateful to be walking in the Spirit and receiving the peace that a God-centered focus brings, and I am grateful to say that finding this walk in my life freed me from diagnosed bipolar disorder.
