#170: The Christian and Mental Health

What is it and Are We Manifesting Mental Health?

Christian and Mental Health

One of the greatest marks of the Christian life should be the manifestation of mental health and stability. Yet it seems that in these days, the struggle to maintain mental health is getting more and more difficult. If we are all honest, everyone to some degree has challenges in thinking and emotions that are difficult to overcome. Yet so many are hiding in shame over their battles, or they feel helpless in getting any better.

As address this subject, Melissa and I want to raise the standard of making mental health a greater priority in the body of Christ. We pray that more and more people will create safe zones of relationship for people to process the battles of the mind they carry. We are hoping that resources like this episode will encourage more people to be equipped to heal the hearts and minds of others in an effective way.

There should be no condemnation when it comes to struggles with mental health, as everyone has some kind of battle they are facing in their minds. The battle to maintain love, peace, sanity and joy seem to be rising up, but there is hope for us if we make being healthy a priority.
