    virtual hug!!!

    because this is such a gem – I dunno, I find it hard to believe that an article like this could exist (also in the best possible sense!! heehee xx), in a world of – Stop Worrying And Pray More; You Need To Trust God More – More Faith, Less Fear; Let Me Quote You Scripture … and all the other stuff people commonly (& absolutely annoyingly) use respond to the Christianity x mental health discussion .. this is a refreshing gem <3

    "Our struggles don’t disqualify us from Christianity: in fact, they can be evidence of it. As believers we expect suffering; and MH can be a part of this." <- I can't believe someone is saying this (do you know how much validation you're giving- validation that many people often take away), & I find it even harder to believe it as true, but in the meantime I will just bubble with delight at this gem I've found. Whether I can bring myself to believe it (yet) is another matter, hahaha.

    Hugs – this is such a gem! <3

    I’m reading this on a psych ward, while feeling about as inadequate a Christian as it’s possible to be, but while also clinging harder to the Lord than I ever have before. Sometimes I think it’s only when we’re truly broken and at the bottom of the pit that our need for a saviour genuinely sinks in.

    Praying for you now Lucy. 2 Corinthians 12:9-11Living Bible (TLB)
    Each time he said, “No. But I am with you; that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people.”
