Author and Bishop Dr. Mark Chironna revealed how God brought him out of anxiety and depressive disorder by His hope and love.
Dr. Mark Chironna
In an episode of Equipping The Saints with hosts Che Ahn and Joy Ahn Ngu, Dr. Mark of Mark Chironna Ministries revealed his personal struggle with mental health issues and how God brought him out of that moment.
The majority of adults nowadays are suffering from mental health issues, particularly during this pandemic. Almost 75% of the people aging from 25 to 65 are experiencing languishing, a sense of stagnation and emptiness. It is the emotion we feel when we feel like there’s no better tomorrow and that we can never flourish. However, contrary to what many of us feel, Jesus promised us that we will flourish.
“We’re promised in scripture that the righteous will flourish like the palm tree,” Dr. Mark said. “Jesus said, ‘I have come that you might have life,’ which happens at the cross that you might have it more abundantly is the infilling of the spirit.”
Anxiety and Depressive disorder
Dr. Mark himself has suffered from anxiety and depressive disorder for more than three years. It was a difficult season for him but God never ceased loving him.
“I feel like there’s something wrong with me but God is letting me know He loves me. But the guilt and the shame of just even being willing to admit what I was wrestling with was very difficult.”
It was God’s love and hope that brought him out of his dark moments.
“I think I got reacquainted with the life that exists between the Father, the Son, and the Spirit and how the Spirit brings us into the communion of the love between.”
Just as God redeemed Dr. Mark from his mental health issues, He can also do it for you. You just have to learn to let go of the weight that has been weighing you down and accept His love.
“God did use supernatural moments that were grace gifts in the middle of all that. But I still had to go through the letting go of excess baggage.”
