Dear friends, With all of what is going on, I just wanted hopefully to allay some of our fears with a little scripture that came to my heart this morning. I have hope about all of this, and trust that our Lord will see us through. Also, please forgive my indulging in foul language recently, but the freakout gets me talking like that, and really that is the language of mental illness at times, for some of us. I know we are all being tolerant and kind, so thank you for liking my recent post that had the f word in it.
That being said, back to the scripture remembrance that I hope may speak to some of you reading. It has really helped me out through the years, and particularly with overcoming the delusional thinking of my personal mental illness of #schizoaffective disorder. Here come the scripture from the Old Testament, or as many say, The Bible.
“5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
These verses help me to remember to get out of my panic and anxiety, and to share my ideas with others, who can help me to rationalize and see flaws in logic, or reasoning, or stinkin’ thinkin’.
While I am not one of those folks who can literally hear the voice of God, I can read my Bible to hear the voices of the faithful prophets and disciples who cherish our Lord and share wisdom with all humanity in a spirit of love. I pray that these challenging times will teach us to “make our paths straight” with His guidance always in Heart and Mind. This is my hope, and this is my appreciation for the learned scientists who are working to get us through all of this as safely as possible. Thank you helpers and carers, and thanks be to God who will see us through.
