Mental health has become a very prominent issue in today’s society. We’re starting to realize, now more than ever, that our thoughts have power. The Bible says we become what we think (Proverbs 23:7 KJV). If we allow our thoughts to control us, they take hold of our emotions. Emotional health is next to suffer after mental health. Although our feelings shouldn’t always get to vote, sadly they do. If we let them, they end up dictating how we feel. Spiritual health is the most important of the three. We are spiritual beings before we are physical beings. We have a spirit and it needs to be nurtured as much as the rest of us, but it tends to be the most forgotten. When we become mentally and emotionally unstable, we become so preoccupied with doing whatever we can to feel better – be it make more money or acquire more assets – that we forget to make time for ourselves to heal whatever is wounded inside. We neglect finding the hope and spiritual healing we need to move forward and make progress in our lives.
“I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.”
(Philippians 3:10-11 NIV)
You can rise again. Jesus died so you can live. Just as He rose again, you can rise again. Jesus said He was the Resurrection and the Life, and so He is offering you the gift of His life and resurrection. Won’t you embrace it? In this book, I draw on various resurrection Scriptures and personal life stories to show you that it’s possible to rise again and overcome anything that may have tried to destroy you. I pray that God will use it to help you do just that – no matter who you are, where you are, or what you are going through.
