Thank you for that testimony. We all are broken people in one way or another. I have dealt with chronic chemically-induced depression ever since childhood, and I have to daily cry out to God to help me get up another day and face this dark cloud that follows me around. He is my only hope, and as long as I go to Him, He carries me. When I stubbornly resist Him, being overwhelmed by it, my depression is worse. Without Him, I would cave in.

Dear Joni, I consider my schizophrenia as grace of God because it is God's way of preserving my life for His Kingdom. In this way I am bearing more fruit and when I am weak He can preserve me from the temptations of this world and bring me safely to heaven with Jesus.
