“God has restored my mind and given me a hope and a promise for my future.”
“I have battled depression and anxiety my whole life; but two years ago, I had a massive breakdown, which was triggered by feelings of rejection. It all felt so dark and hopeless. I became so isolated. I didn’t want to talk to my friends. I didn’t want to go out. I had lost my will to live. Most nights I’d go to bed thinking, I will be okay if I don’t wake up tomorrow. Medication only seemed to make me more anxious.
Over time, I came to realize Jesus was the only answer. I started recording messages from Hillsong Channel on my DVR and watching them when I got home from work. One of my favorites was a series by Carl Lentz called, “Making Progress.” These messages, as well as messages from Brian Houston and John Gray, gave me the courage to fight the battle raging in my head. Instead of going to bed fearful and anxious, I’d go to bed with good thoughts.
The daily renewing of my mind over time has been life changing. I am pretty much fully recovered. God has restored my mind and given me a hope and a promise for my future. I truly believe the best is yet to come.”
