Psycho-therapy Today


Before I start I want to remind everyone that I, too, suffer from Bipolar and I have chosen to choose a more positive influence in my life through Jesus Christ. Do I still suffer, of course, I do. He creates miracles, but that doesn’t mean he will wipe my life into all smooth sailing. For his own reasoning he has decided that I am to suffer with Bipolar, other mental health disorders and quite a few chronic pain issues.

Do I blame him for my suffering. I used to. So much so that I gave up my beliefs for 40 years. Now I have decided to follow his lead and trust his plans for my life. I don’t know exactly what they are, but I think they have to do with helping those that suffer with any disorder or disease.

I do this as I have understood his wishes to be. That may change over time. I am fairly stable now. I also monitor my own meds and have a few to play with to change my moods as necessary.

My therapist is proud of me. Of who I am becoming and what I am doing to help others  when I can. I have my negative days, but I have more positive ones now and I am much happier with my life.

I am writing and getting published. That has always been a dream. I didn’t think it would be about bipolar, but that is just the beginning. My writing blog is full of new stuff. 6 articles are currently published. Posted stuff on other blogs. Been interviewed by a few posters as well.

I have one book started and one serialized story on the other blog that just may make a book eventually with work. Now it is just working off prompts. There are some time line issues.

I am willing to talk to anyone who wants or needs to talk and to pray for anyone who wants or needs prayers. I am thinking of creating a prayer bowl. Although I am not sure exactly how that works yet. I know my parents kept one and I believe they prayed for everyone in there at once and were constantly receiving calls to add others to the bowl. My mom is no longer with us, but dad might remember.

    “The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17, NIV) Jesus SO delights in you, dear Tessa! What Jesus is doing through you is so powerful and so beautiful. I love you!

    As for the prayer bowl, maybe you could make a page on your blog, with a sort of contact form on it, but only for prayers? Not quite sure about how you would put a submission form on there, but it’s just an idea. Unless you mean a real, physical prayer bowl 🙂 Either way, your walk is beautiful and so encouraging 🙂 Never forget that you are delighted in, not because of who you are, but because of who He is. Prayers and hugs, dear friend!

      My head will swell if people keep praising me. But I know that is not the way God would want it. I am doing what I am called to do and I do it freely and with love for those that need it and for friends and family. I do appreciated being told that Jesus delights in me. I love you too. Thanks for being my friend.

      Good idea with a submission page, but I do mean a real bowl to keep the names in and make sure the prayer is there for all of them all of the time. My parents bowl overflowed and people called to be added or to add a friend or relative. I have to ask my dad how that worked. In the meantime I will work on a submission page for people needing prayer. Love ❤ to you my sister in Christ. Thank you!

    Great Idea for a Prayer Bowl. Create a Page labeled “Prayer” or “Prayer Bowl” (whatever you want to call it. Make a short explanation about it and at the top there is a button for contact page #7…press that and it will give you a bunch of gibberish but when published, it will allow people to contact you privately with their request. I have one on each of my “About” pages so people can contact me with concerns or questions. Such a good idea. Wow!

      I gather you are self hosted. I have a regular blog and figured out a page with a form in it that is customized to accept that info I would need. It is on my menu bar.
