For those of whom are suffering from a mental illness, You may be feeling like you are lost and dont know what to do or how to get back on track. That is how i am feeling now. I went back to church last sunday and it really did help me feel better. It has been years since i have set foot in a church. Sometimes believing in a higher power can be a cathartic feeling, Knowing that God has a plan for you. the sermon that was taught last sunday was about how god may not have planned what has been done to you, but that he set it up to teach you a lesson for what he has coming for you. The analogy he used was that there were 5 trees that have been planted, only 4 of the trees have grown to be big and strong and the last one was still trying to grow, He had asked why the 5th tree has not grown to be big and strong . the gardeners said that they have been whipping it to be big and strong. What this means to me is that what has happened to you in the past may have been what you needed to learn the hard way in order for you to become bigger and stronger than you can imagine. I am not trying to force religion or faith in you. I am just letting you know what has worked for me. To me attending church gives me a sense of community and connection because knowing that you are not alone in your struggles and that people around you are not going to judge you and they are sincerely caring about you. The sermon was so powerful to me that i was crying the whole sermon. The lady that was sitting next to me was trying to comfort me because i was crying and with her doing that has made me feel cared for.
so in conclusion, going back to church has given me a sense of peace and believing in a higher power that does have a plan for me gives me the peace that my life will be purposeful.
