Dear God I’m Grateful For Mental Health


One of the main ways most we neglect ourselves is by not caring for our mental health. We celebrate the grind and #teamnosleep, but forget to take time to rest and prioritize caring for our mind and spirit. So here are 3 ways to recharge spiritually and focus on your mental health.


1. Focus On The Good


It’s easy to internalize negative news, sadness, self doubt, death, fear and the many other factors of negativity that we are exposed to on a daily basis. With information so easily accessible it’s important to monitor what we take in and and focus on the good. God is good and he instructs us to spread the Good. News of Jesus Christ, so focusing on the good in life will ultimately bring us peace. 


“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬


2. Speak life


“Kind words are like honey— sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” - Proverbs‬ ‭16:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬


Mental breakdowns can often be triggered by what we believe of ourselves and accept in our hearts. The more we speak kind words to ourselves the more we believe and take on the characteristics of these words, and embrace them in how we think and speak to others. 


3. Prioritize Rest 


It is useless for us to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones. (Psalms‬ ‭127:2‬) 


The Bible talks about a special rest still waiting for the people of God (Hebrews‬ ‭4:9‬) which can only be found in Jesus. So let us prioritize rest and allow Jesus to carry our burdens as mentioned in  Matthew‬ ‭11:28‬: “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”


Mental Health is important and how we care for ourselves reflects how we care for others. As my husband says, “It’s important to take care of your mental health, and care about people enough to not destroy theirs.” - Durand Robertson
