My following testimony is inspired by shapes' post in the "Worthy Q & A for Seekers" forum. And I quote, "How does God deal with those who have mental illness. Does he heal people from this affliction?" https://www.worthychristianforums.com/topic/219239-mental-illness-god/#comment-2777709
God dealt with my mind in a mess by giving me a guardian angel. I have seen and heard her. God had me born into an amazing family. They love, protect and provide for me. God gave me and the ability to discern real true friends. Only a couple dozen never gave up on me. God supplied me with doctors, psychiatrists and professionals. Medications, personal care and safety nets caught me when I fell, repeatedly. God commands my government, nation and community services to help me, however little and lacking it is. God dealt with me by interacting with my heart, mind, body and soul. Most importantly, God dealt with my sin by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to save, protect and heal me.
I have been saved since 2016's Christmas season. I dove deep into everything Christian and came up baptized on the last day of 2017 (also baptized as an infant). I attended some prayer meetings last year. They anointed me with oil and prayed for the healing of my mind. Since then, God has been healing and restoring me among other areas of my life. I feel shocks of energy surge though and jerk my body. I have been told this is the blood of Jesus running through me. When I am praying, willingly changing my thoughts to God's will, having revelations or meditating on God, I feel tangible physical healing in my temples behind my eyes. It has the similar sensation of a yawn, a condensed vibration. A Christian veteran I admire said something that stuck in my head relatively recently. "I don't even think like that anymore." It was a eureka revelation moment at the time and applies to what has been happening to my mind over the past year. I am becoming less like the Greg of the past and more like Christ. The Holy Spirit is alive and well in me and changing me for the better.
The short answer is, "yes," He does heal people from this affliction.
How God deals with sin, evil, death and even demons is by offering Jesus Christ a place in between us and all those "mental health issues." The secular world is leaving out God (in three Persons) as the ultimate and only real true solution, cure, coping mechanism and explanation, etcetera. I am living breathing proof. People would have a hard time believing my past. People in my past would have a hard time believing my present. My future will be hard to believe for anyone stuck in the secular world ignoring the one, true, living God. Jesus Christ is alive and well and has made me so, eternally, glory be to our Heavenly Father!
12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” 13 He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.

3 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.

7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Collage Puzzle 1 For this one, I am giving some information about how to use the application as well as the puzzle itself. Following are some tips / tricks / instructions, but I am not finished with them yet, but it will get you started - please consider though, responding to the poll about difficulty preferences, so I have some direction on what puzzles I should be providing. - On with the directions:
On this puzzle, there are differing numbers of puzzle pieces depending on the difficult level chosen.
The puzzle piece shapes vary with the versions also..
when you go to solve the puzzle, here are some things you should know:
I suggest that you read number 4 first!
1 On the lover left hand corner of the puzzle play screen, there is a little square that allows you to display a small picture, of what the completed puzzle will look like. You can toggle this on or off, with a click.
2 To the right of that, is the ghost button. The ghost button, changes you play board, to a lightly colored version, of the completed puzzle.
3 Next to that button, to the right, is the arrange/disarrange button. Disarrange, means that your puzzle pieces will be on the board, as they might have come out of the box, a bit messy. Arrange, means the pieces will be in tidy rows, easier to see. This button is dangerous, as it can place your pieces in piles, that you had sitting on the play board where you wanted them to be. The function is best chosen, before you start solving your puzzle.
4 Next to that is the gear symbol, these are tools and settings. Look these over, they are pretty self explanatory, but see what they do, and alter settings to suit your preferences.
5 Bottom center of the play screen, is display, that shows the percentage of you puzzle completed. Once you start playing, it also starts a clock, showing you how much time has elapsed since you began. The time begins when you move your first piece. Once the clock is running, a pause option appears. If you click pause, the clock stops, but also, the puzzle pieces disappear from the table, until you restart play.
6. To move a piece, you click on it to select it. Then you will see a shadow around it indicating it is selected, and you move the piece to where you want it. Click it again, and it "drops" into place.
7. When moving a piece, you may want to rotate it. You may do so, while the piece is selected, and use the right mouse button (or the equivalent on your device, to rotate it 90 degrees for each click, then left click it, when you have it as you want it.
8. If you have the sound on, there is a satisfying sound, somewhere between a thump and a click when a piece is properly connected to another.
More info to come at a future time, but that should get you started. Super Easy version of this puzzle - 48 pieces Moderately Difficult version of the puzzle - 99 pieces Quite difficult version of the puzzle - 204 pieces
I'll start it off with mine. Mine is John 3:16. Jesus Christ becoming our Lord and Savior by dying on the cross for OUR sins. He is Sinless! He sacrificed for us, so we could be freed from sin! Not to sin freely!
Share your scripture verse below and why. God bless, Jesus Loves You
John 3:16 KJV
