The Cure For Breakdown

Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life
Proverbs 4:23

Mental illnesses, like depression, are largely triggered by life events not genetics

In life we shall encounter many trials and much tribulation, it is inevitable.
Our sin and rebellion against God is the leading culprit that the world/medical system ignores and papers over with drugs.
Jesus Christ is the only one who can cleanse and erase our sins as He paid the price for them on the cross.

It is a gift from God

If we carry this weight alone on our own shoulders we will eventually break when the weight becomes unbearable.
If we learn like King David did early on to allow the LORD to carry our burdens and look to Him for healing, we will make it through the treacherous parts that cross our path.
Without the LORD, our life is hopeless.

The only thing the expert$ can do for you is turn you into a drugged up zombie, never getting to the root of the problem.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.
3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 23

  1. Good commentary, Marcel. The anti-God faction regard people not as animals (that would be bad enough), but as machines. Therefore any problem with the mechanism can be tinkered with, e.g., with pharmaceuticals. The Bible regards people as very high beings made in the image of God (albeit deeply fallen). BIG difference.

  2. Thank you, so much going on as time winds down.
    How low the high beings have fallen.

    The evil anti-God ones are blinded and really believe they are God, having replaced Him. WOW, are they in for a big surprise!

    corrupted, many beyond healing

    Babylon has suddenly fallen and is shattered!
    Wail for her [if you care to]!
    Get balm for her [incurable] pain;
    Perhaps she may be healed.
    We would have healed Babylon, but she was not to be healed.
    Abandon her and let each [captive] return to his own country,
    For her guilt and judgment have reached to heaven
    And are lifted up to the very skies. Jeremiah 51
