Psalm 23: Mental Health Remix Edition 

Jesus is my light and gives me all that my spirit needs to carry on.

God invites me to trust in divine love so that when the still waters run thick with crazy blood, my soul is restored.

God leads me down paths of giving my testimony for the sake of healing.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of mental illness, I will fear no evil, for God is with me.

God’s Spirit comforts me.

God prepares a table for all who carry the cross of mental illness; God makes sure there’s abundance, more than enough of everything for everybody.

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my crazy life.

And I will be in the blessed presence of God’s healing light and love forever.

Originally published in my book Blessed are the Crazy. This post is dedicated to the memory of Brett who recently died by suicide.
