4 Ways Christian Faith Shatters Mental Health Myths and Builds Hope

Though troubles may assail us, remember: 

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” – 2 Corinthians 4:17

I think as Christians, we can get into a place where we become complacent when people start talking about that problem again. I’ve experienced it from a potentially medicated space, and I never end up using medication. However, it was presented and is a real fix for people depending on their different biochemical makeups. It is a real thing. It is not a made-up conversation. However, even though it is real, it is not permanent.

Now, some of you may read this and think, ‘Gosh, I’ve been taking medication for 30 years. It feels pretty permanent. I don’t have a choice.’ I believe that 2 Corinthians 4:7 teaches us that though troubles may assail us, remember our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us as a far more exceedingly eternal weight of glory. Whether we have freedom here on this side of heaven or not, it’s not permanent. You do not have to carry that as your identity.
