A smorgasbord of daily mental wellness soothing biblical guidance.
The year was 1978, when one day I was on an airliner and I noticed a sadness in my soul. I was returning to the United States from Adelaide, Australia. During the previous two years, I had served the Lord with the Australian members of the LDS church and other people. Rather than melancholy, it was a dark depression I had experienced the last three months I spent in the Land Down Under. Therefore, I encountered helplessness, as I missed my cheerful and happy self for a few months. Other symptoms I was having, were negative, intrusive and repetitive thoughts in my mind. These thoughts caused emotions of darkness I had confronted for a while.
A few years after I had returned to the states, a psychiatrist diagnosed me with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and later, another doctor said I had Bipolar Disorder. So, I have coped with chronic depression and anxiety episodes during my adult life; however, today, at moments, I experience emotions of goodness, because I am happy and calm.
As I have come to know my mental illnesses and the skills to manage my symptoms, this has allowed me to take off moments and turn them into a good day. I prefer to label bad moments as off times, because I want to convey a positive attitude to you, the reader, to have an optimistic outlook. During a day, the therapy that has helped me the most to lessen the anxiety I experience, is in the Holy Bible – in particular, my best counselors, my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
Futhermore, I take my condition as each moment passes and I continuously move one step at a time towards psychological health stability. Rather than enduring illness, currently I have shining moments of positive emotions and reasonable thoughts. I am happy, because I have a thorough study of mental wellness scriptures from the Bible everyday. I attribute this optimistic change of mine to constant scriptural study, which I have discovered from reading many uplifting verses. One scripture from the Bible that has indesribable meaning to me and other children of God states, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7 King James Version) What this verse means to me, is that it describes to us the peace and comfort our Father in Heaven will give us, and that Jesus Christ will guard our souls — specifically, as we pray and ask God for the spirituality we need.
Another biblical scripture is available – where the Lord watches over his disciples — that helps us to feel real peace and comfort. In Matthew, it states:
23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
—Matthew 14:23-25 (KJV)
