I spent a lot of my life feeling alone and afraid in one way or another. I would cycle through phases of panic attacks, social anxiety, depression, and anorexia over and over again.
Feeling hopeless, helpless, and unwanted were my usual state and happiness never seemed to last long enough.
I first started studying the Bible in 1st grade, I came to believe in Jesus in middle school and high school, but I truly dedicated my life to Him and dying to myself daily at the end of high school.
It was only through taking my faith into my own hands, reading the Bible for myself, meditating, praying, and praising God that I found Him, and myself in the process.
I have life and I have it abundantly! No long do I have to walk in fear for He has given me a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. I don’t belong to darkness, but rather to Light!
“You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. ” -Psalm 18:28
