Broken by Fear, Anchored in Hope
One in four of us will experience mental health problems. Shame, fear, anger and despair are our unwelcome fellow travellers, as Rob Merchant knows to his cost. We can resort to self-medicating through consuming, working, or other distractions, to hide who we are. Rob has tried them and discovered they don’t deliver. Healing starts when we accept our vulnerability. True mental health – and true resilience – develop as we surrender wholly to Christ. Rob explores how we can move away from terror and self-loathing. As we acknowledge our vulnerability, and our place before God, we can discover forgiveness of others and of self, and find hope. It is never easy, but it works, because it’s true.
