Why I’m not mad at God for my anxiety and depression

Many believers ask where is God in mental illness? First, let me state I am not mad at God for my anxiety and depression. I believe the enemy (aka the devil) has nothing to do with anxiety and depression.

As a community of believers, we must get to the point where we practice what we preach and this includes trusting God even when we do not understand. Proverbs 3:5 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” 

We must learn that the absence of mental or physical health is not the absence of God. Mental illness just like physical illness is an indication that something is out of alignment in the body, not the spirit. In my experience living through illnesses deepens my faith, trust, and love of Christ.

If you are working through any mental illnesses know that every day you wake up is a sign God is with you.
