What Does The Bible Say About Autism

I’m a man who suffers from depression. I’ve been on medication for years, but it hasn’t worked very well. The only thing that helps me cope with the symptoms of depression is writing. I have found that when I write about my feelings and what’s going on in my life, it helps me feel better emotionally—and even physically!

Bare Your Soul

The Bible says, “You are not alone.”

We as a community have been fighting this fight for so long, and it is only now that we have begun to feel the effects of media attention on autism. Autistic people still suffer from prenatal testing, being institutionalized or being put up for adoption because parents don’t know what to do with us. We still face discrimination in schools and workplaces because our brains work differently than those around us. We are constantly made fun of for our stimming behaviors, which help us cope with overwhelming situations in our environment (like when we’re overwhelmed by sensory input).

The Bible reminds us that no matter what happens during this lifetime—we will never be defined by our struggles. We may experience some hard times here on earth, but ultimately God has plans for our lives that go far beyond anything we could possibly imagine right now!

You are not alone

If you are a parent of a child with autism, you may feel like no one understands what it’s like for you. You may also feel alone in your struggles and concerns. However, you are not alone. There are many others who have been through what you are going through, and there are people who will be willing to help or listen as well!

It is important to remember that your child is not his diagnosis; he is not the disease that he has been given. He is still the same person who was born into this world—a child of God whose life matters greatly to Him. Your child needs your love and support more than ever right now because he needs someone who will stand by him without judgment or condemnation during this difficult time in his life. This can be difficult when all around us society tells us how “terrible” autism really is (and we’ll talk more about that later). Remember: Your son or daughter isn’t causing any problems—they’re just trying to fit into this crazy world where everything seems new and different from what’s familiar! It can be scary for them too! So keep reassuring yourself that everything will work out okay…in time…and remember: You’re not alone either 🙂

Fight On

You are not alone in your fight against depression and autism. You can win the fight. You can be happy again. You can be the best you can be, and you can be a good person and a good parent.

There are many things that will help you on your journey to happiness and success, but there is one thing that I believe is essential: Fight On!

You Are Not a Diagnosis

When you hear the word autism, what do you think of? Do you think of a child rocking back and forth, staring at their fingers? Does it make you think of a person who is not capable of social interactions or communication? Or are they just like everyone else; they just have some challenges in life that need to be addressed.

Let me assure you that none of these things are true. You are not your diagnosis and I would encourage you to never let anyone tell or imply that they know your limitations because there are none! You may have some challenges but they don’t define who you are as an individual or limit your potential for greatness!

There is hope for a life free of depression.

The good news is that there is hope for a life free of depression.

If you have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), it’s natural to feel overwhelmed by feelings of hopelessness, sadness and anxiety. But don’t despair—there are many things we can do as individuals and as a society to help alleviate the pain caused by ASD and make life more enjoyable for everyone involved. In fact, there’s reason to believe that children diagnosed with autism today will not only live longer but also enjoy more fulfilling lives than their parents did thanks to advances in treatment options over recent decades.[1]

The Bible is a powerful tool for those who are struggling with depression and anxiety. It can help you find hope in times of despair and give you peace when things seem impossible. But more than anything else, the Bible is about love—God’s love for each one of us and our call to love others as Christ loves us (John 13:34-35).
