Jesus could heal your mental health today, but sometimes he walks through the crowd of sick people and doesn’t heal them. And that’s okay.
Jesus died on the cross for your sins. And if he never answers your prayers the way you want ever again, he’s still done enough for you.
If you have poor mental health or mental illness for the rest of your long life, that will still be 0% of eternity. We are promised PERFECTION with Jesus forever.
