Key Takeaway

God is for you, and He is with you in every moment. He is not punishing you for your mental illness—He is heartbroken with you.

  1. Mental illness is a real issue, and it affects our spiritual and physical life.
  2. Dealing with mental illness isn't a one-time thing—it's a process.
  3. Seek disciplines to help your mental illness—whether that's changing your diet, exercising, taking medication, going to therapy, etc.
  4. Not everyone will struggle with mental illness, but every single one of us should make our mental health a priority.
  5. Not having a healthy relationship with technology keeps us from living a healthy life.
  6. Our life mission is to love the Lord our God with all our mind, heart, & soul.
  7. It's important to have a right and true picture of God.
  8. God can handle all that you're going through.


"I understand and have been in the trenches of mental illness, but I also know and believe that God is in it, and He is fighting for us."
