Some reminders for mentally ill Christians: 

– Your illness is not a sin.

– Your illness is not a punishment by God.

– Prayer is powerful and good but please don’t believe that you need to pray instead of getting professional help. Pray and take your medication. Pray and go to your therapist/doctor.  

– God gave us medication and therapy (He led humans to inventing it). Using it is not “going against Gods plan”, it’s using the resources God provided for us.
