As I write this, I am also reminding myself these things. Please hear me out:
I see you struggling. I know how you feel when it seems as if the world is falling apart. No one seems to understand what you are going through. Some days you are as happy as those around you. Those days, you aren’t really faking it to make it. There is a glimmer of hope. Happiness IS attainable! Some days, you aren’t as hopeful because you are disappointed with how things are. There are also days where you have had enough, you just want to hide or sleep forever. Your body just cringes at the thought of the word interaction!
I want to remind you of something very important today:
You are not the sick person you think you are. What I mean is, your identity is not Mentally ill or Depressed or Suicidal or Anger or Loneliness or Bipolar or cancer or Hopeless or whatever comes to mind when you are thinking of where you are and how you are feeling!
You are God’s beautiful creation!
You are a Child of the King!
You are chosen and adopted into His family!
You are sealed with His Holy Spirit!
You are loved!
You are an heir to His Kingdom!
You are and have been blessed with every spiritual blessing!
You are who God says you are!
You are made for a purpose and you are here for such a time as this!
You are given life so that you are able to tell your story because you CAN make a difference!
Wherever you are right now and whatever you are going through does NOT define who you are and what you will be!
You matter to those around you but most of all, you matter the most to the Heavenly Father!
Friend, I know it is hard! It’s tough! It’s discouraging at times BUT, there is Light not just at the end of the tunnel but where you are right now! Take His hand, walk with Him! He is NOT silent! He is close and He is right where you are! Speak to Him! You don’t need fancy words to tell Him how you feel, He knows, He wants you to ask Him for help! Know that He loves you so much!
“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:17-18
Praying for you,
