> I guess the question I have dealt with the most os how do I reconcile my weakness and inability to handle everything by just trusting in God with my need for therapy and medication.

First of all, Ephesians 6:13 says that having done all to stand, stand therefore. By therapy and medication, you are doing that which is in your ability to "stand". You do all you know to do, physically and spiritually, and THEN you wait on God. If you broke a leg, would you consider it weakness to go to the hospital to get help? God provides us with many, many paths to healing. (By the way, most of the time, healing was, is, and continues to be a process, not an event.) If I were you, I wouldn't reject ANY of the avenues to healing that you have available to you.

> I feel that others look at me with such condemnation for my lack of faith.

You need to take a close look at some things here. Is it just a "feeling", or is someone really judging you? Feeling tend to lie to us. And the Bible is clear on not judging others. What others are you talking about? In your church? The bottom line is: Romans 8:1 "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus." Get into the Bible and find out who God says you are. Get so rooted and grounded in the Word that nothing moves you.

> As I look at myself the same way.

You had better lighten up on yourself. You probably already know you can be your own worst enemy. Treat yourself with the same grace you would treat, for instance, a cancer patient.
