I believe…

“I believe that the potential and life of the bi-polar patient should not be truncated because of the limitations associated with the illness. I believe that with proper medication, counsel, and support, the bi-polar patient can live fulfilled, without stigma and mental imbalance.”  –  Precious A. E.

The above statement is a part of my profile on this blog. Over the months, this has been my motivation to share my thoughts and experiences on mental health and bipolar with the world.

I believe. I have not stopped believing.

I believe that individuals suffering from mental health should have access to opportunities that can enhance their lives.

I believe that being diagnosed with any form of mental illness is not a license to self pity.

I believe that persons managing any form of mental illness, be it bipolar or not, have some much untapped potential.

I believe that mental health patients have a role to play in eradicating the stigma associated with mental health- There is a need to speak out! There is a need to break the culture of silence!

I believe that, irrespective of the mental health issues, our loved ones can be educated on how to love us when we first understand ourselves. Secondly, by loving ourselves first, thirdly, by confronting negative thoughts and actions that tend to push our loved ones away!

I am aware that there are no permanent medical solutions for most of the health issues that people are faced with today. Nonetheless, I am encouraged by scriptures like Jeremiah 30: 17, Daniel 4: 34 & 36; 5:18. Even King Nebuchadnezzar had a chance. He was healed and restored. His understanding, reasoning, glory, Honour, splendor and kingdom were restored to him. I believe God can do the same for you!

I believe that what God is offering everyone who is managing, dealing or in recovery as it concerns mental health or health in general is Healing. I believe that God’s Healing comes with restoration, not just cure. Cure is the smallest part of what God has to offer as far as your health is concerned.

Still, I believe that you have to take your medication and not avoid your appointment with your doctor, psychiatrists or psychologists, but put your trust in God’s ability to heal you, while you are at it.

I believe… what about you? What do you believe? I would love to learn from your feedback. Please send to idaretoblossom@gmail.com

Ask God for the grace to believe Him for total restoration and healing. Please note that healing is the children’s bread (Matthew 15:26). You have to become a child of God to access this. See John 3: 1-21, Matthew 11:28-30

The New King James Version of the Bible: John 3: 1-21, Matthew 11:28-30, Jeremiah 30: 17, Daniel 4: 34 & 36; 5:18.
