Acknowledgements

This writer would like to acknowledge the following:

Jesus / Us / Eternity

Jesus is Lord
Jesus is the Savior of all who believe
Jesus died for my sins, and the sins of the whole world

We are not God. We are humans – frail, fallible, needing a Savior
We need Jesus all the time, and He is always there. Always.
We are forgiven, clean, redeemed, bought with the precious blood of our savior, Jesus Christ.

Eternity with Jesus will be worth the wait. No more pain. No more tears.
Eternity has been bought and paid for by Jesus at the cross.
Eternity is assured for those who are in Christ.

Thank you, Jesus, for dying for our sins, so we could be with You forever.

Here is a big question for you: “What is it like to have psychosis?” I pray that you and I never find out. I know has got to be scary. I would ask that we join together to pray for those with mental illness. May they come to know the love, grace, security, and peace of Christ, and may they find help for their illness.
