*Reblog* Understanding Exhaustion

Hands up if you didn’t get enough restful sleep last night. I’m raising both arms. I have sleep apnea. I stop breathing 53 times an hours. Sitting in the doctor’s office, I listen as he explained that even after getting treatment for sleep apnea, I might not feel rested like many of his other patient. […]

*Reblog* Anger, Bitterness, Anyone?

A great post from T. R. Noble! Really makes you think!

Are you harboring bitterness towards someone? It’s time to let it go!

Is there anyone you haven’t forgiven? Are you bitter? Does thinking about a past event or person still cause your chest to tighten and anger to rise within? ^ If any of the following is relatable, do you also feel like you are not connecting with God? Yeah, you may have guessed it. It is […]

*Reblog*Swallow Your Pride. Swallow The Pill.

Excellent post!

Fractured Faith Blog

I have felt my mood spiralling steadily downwards throughout the week. This has trickled into my writing which has been largely negative and downbeat. I don’t apologise for this as I have always said I would write honestly on this blog. Those who choose to read it see the good, the bad and the frequently ugly. Warts and all. I spent too long living a lie on social media so this latest incarnation is, if nothing else, a truthful one.

The reason for this? Quite simple really. I never bothered to order my repeat prescription for Escitaloprem which I take on a daily basis to combat OCD, Anxiety and Depression. It’s one little, white pill a day but they make all the difference to my mood and outlook on life. Without them I start to feel irritable, edgy and miserable within a few days. Negative thinking takes over and the…

*Reblog* Guilty of Being Chronically Ill

I came across this blog post today by Brainless Blogger and found it to be soooo true! I suffer from a chronic illness as well and find myself feeling this way a lot.

Yes, I am guilty of being ill. And we can feel this guilt acutely. When: We don’t perform to our standards When we don’t perform to what we think society’s standards are When we don’t perform to other’s standards When we cancel plans When we miss work When people try and tell us it is […]

*Reblog*Leigh’s Interview Feature

Back in December, The Bipolar Writer did a feature on me of what it’s like to be a Bipolar Christian. I don’t know why I didn’t think about sharing this until now but check it out! I think he did a great job!

The Bipolar Writer Blog - A Mental Health Blog

Imagine.

Being completely out of focus on the world around you. It is impossible to get out bed even for a moment. The struggle to be yourself is real, and the little things in your life seem to be impossible to get done. What do you do? What can you do when depression gets the best part of your day?

Leigh turns to her faith, “If I take a second to breathe and focus on God, I find that I’m able to concentrate better.”

This is the story of a brave soul dealing with the unimaginable depths of her diagnosis. Each of our mental illness stories is unique to each human being in the mental health community. Here is one story—a good one of Leigh S from Norfolk, VA.

If we could walk a day in Leigh’s shoes we would find someone stuck between two worlds. Leigh fights with her…

*Reblog* Reasons Some Will Not Come To Christ

Excellent points made in this article!

A Ruby In The Rough

This article struck a chord with me since I know some young people who will not come to Christ because they do not wish to leave their sins. May God grant them true repentance before it is too  late.


Reasons Why Some Will Not Come to Christ

Albert N. Martin

Bellini-paining-arms folded

Jerusalem was buzzing with activity during one of the high Jewish feast days. And now at the pool of Bethesda the controversial young rabbi from Galilee had astounded everyone by healing a man paralyzed for thirty-eight years! But instead of rejoicing, the Jewish leaders first confronted the healed man for carrying his bed on the Sabbath—this was work, they said, and God had forbidden all work on the Sabbath—and then condemned Jesus for His “work” of healing on the Sabbath day! Chapter Five of the Gospel of John records Jesus’ simple response: “My Father has been working until now, and…
