It is not God's will for you to be ill, mentally or otherwise. God sent His beloved son to die for you, not just for your eternal salvation, but also so that you can have "life more abundant" here on earth. "He was bruised for your iniquities, the chastisement of your peace was upon Him, and by His stripes you are healed." I don't begin to understand why some people are instantly healed, and others go through a healing process. God didn't keep Daniel out of the lion's den, but he did close the mouths of the lions so they couldn't hurt him. God didn't keep the three Hebrew boys out of the fiery furnace, but He not only kept them from burning, He got in the furnace with them. And God didn't send a bolt of lightening to kill Goliath. He let little David fling a stone and a lot of faith to take the giant down. I don't know why it took 40 years for the Israelites to get to the Promised Land, but they did get there.

I can't answer why you are going through what you are, but I can assure you it isn't from God. It was satan who came to "kill, steal, and destroy." It is satan who is "seeking who he can devour." God can not only deliver you out of this, but He can use it to your good and to the good of others.

My heart goes out to you. My best advise is to find a good church, not a "religious" church, but a real, Bible-believing full-of-faith church to help you in this journey.

Get on your knees before God. Pour your heart out to Him - the good and the bad. Trust me, you can't shock or surprise Him. Remember, even as Jesus hung on the cross, He asked God why He had forsaken Him. He understands. If you haven't committed your life to Him, consider it. He is a "gentleman", and unlike the devil, He won't enter your life without an invitation. You won't regret it.

And get into a good church! When your faith is weak, they can pull you through.

Please let me know how you are doing as time goes by. I really do care.
