I read Untreatable Online pretty regularly. It’s not particularly Christian from my perspective, but the author has great wisdom in understanding mental illness. Here is today’s post:
BPD Awareness Month – Best Parts About Having A Mental Illness
To his list I would add the following:
6. Recognizing God‘s mercy. I would never have as deep an understanding of God’s mercy and care without my illnesses.
7. Seeing God’s people in action. In the same vein, God works mightily through the smallest and strangest of places (and people!). It really is a joy to watch God at work, even in the midst of great sorrow and pain.
Those are mine. What are yours?
