When I turn my life over to Christ, it seems more like He turns it back to me with trust to do His will. As I prove myself worthy of His trust He sustains, enables, encourages, supports, helps me find the words I need when I need them, helps with my timing, coordinating, and calendaring, so that things and events fit together neatly. It seems like life is filled with little miracles, even amid the pain, the trials, and the certain challenges we all face.

So, in a way I understand what you mean when you say you turn your life over to Christ, but I'm not sure exactly what He does for you when you do that, other than be saved.

Turning my life over to Christ, becoming a Christian, and becoming saved might save me later on, but what would it do for me right now and how would it heal mental illness?

I define turning my life over to Christ as empowering the faith in God it takes to keep the commandments and become a person God can trust and be happy with. There is healing in that alone.

As a parent, I feel joy when I see my children walk in truth. God also feels joy when he sees His children walkinng in truth and faith, and being obedient to His commandments.

I see much healing within joy. After all, isn't joy the antidote or opposite to depression?

What exactly do you do when you turn your life over to Christ? How is it done? Does it help you keep His commandments?
