YES, MENTALLY DISTURBED, IN AN INSTITUTION AND WRITING A HYMN!
That's my story and I would like to share it. Would you sing the first verse, please?
THERE IS A FOUNTAIN verse 1
My life was a disaster. By the time I was six three of my siblings had died. Then, my mother died as did the baby she gave birth to.
This began my mental and emotional troubles.
My father placed me in a school and there a bully pick on me and terroized me all the time. When my father moved me to another school it was much the same so I threw my Bible away and attempted suicide.
Several of my friends encouraged my father to put me in an asylum which was directed by a strong Christian man who loved poetry. He became a great encouraging friend and I finally accepted Jesus as my Savior though depression haunted me all my life. I am so glad Christ never gives up!
Another hymn I wrote is God Moves in a Mysterious Way. Read sometime when you are in the depth of doubt and dismay.
