Mental health that’s permanent and secure

Mental health is an issue that is often examined by the media, debated in political spheres and health insurance companies, and discussed widely on college campuses. Yet some of these discussions and debates are stunted by the “taboo” nature of the topic, and effective solutions remain elusive. The seeming prevalence of depression, anxiety, and stress indicates that many are still struggling to find permanent relief from the symptoms.

I understand. I’ve been there. I was one of those struggling to find reprieve from the constant roller coaster of highs and lows and the anxious and sometimes suicidal thoughts that would paralyze me with fear. And yet, I learned that there is a power greater than the seeming power of such dark thoughts. This power is God, who shined a light so bright as to permanently dispel the mental darkness I was experiencing, which led to a complete and permanent healing of depression and anxiety.

This light came when I was reminded about the power of God, divine Love, who created us. I came to understand that reflecting God’s goodness is inherent to my nature because I was created in the image and likeness of the Divine—whole, complete, and entirely good, as stated in the first chapter of Genesis in the Bible.
