The Power of the Word

I am a child of God. I am a child of God with bipolar disorder.

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in my later adolescent years. I talk about this more extensively in my first book, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil.” While I viewed this as a curse in my life at first, the Lord turned it around and made this diagnosis a blessing.

~”But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” ~Jeremiah 17:7-8, NIV~

My confidence, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, comes from the Lord. It does not come from man. It does not come from woman. It comes from Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior.

My confidence, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, comes from the Lord. It does not come from material things. It does not come from wealth. It comes from Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior.

My confidence, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, comes from the Lord. It does not come from books. It does not come from knowledge. It comes from Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior.

I have to keep telling myself these Words of promises from the Lord daily, as reminders to myself, that I am not just a woman diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I am a child of God with bipolar disorder. These words of power, from the Lord, remind me who I am in Christ Jesus: a child of God with bipolar disorder.

The more that I continue to remind myself of my identity in Christ, the more that I am reminded how my bipolar disorder diagnosis plays a role in my identity, not just as a child of God, BUT a child of God with bipolar disorder. These words of power, from the Lord, remind me who I am in Christ Jesus: a child of God with bipolar disorder.

When I remind myself who I am, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, I gain confidence in God and confidence in myself. I gain confidence in my identity in my bipolar disorder diagnosis and in my salvation power, which is of Christ the Lord. These words of power, from the Lord, remind me who I am and always will be: was, and is, and is to come until the day I reach eternity: a child of God with bipolar disorder.

~”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”~ 2 Timothy 1:7, KJV~

If you are planning to get a copy of my book to be published, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil,” you will be able to get it once it is released in February 2022. Grace and peace!
