I love Jesus.
I have a great family.
The abuse I experienced as a child is over.
I live in freedom from fear.
But I still suffer from depression and anxiety.
I cast my cares on the Lord only to pick them back up again later.
Some Christians say I just need to trust the Lord more.
I do trust Him…wholeheartedly.
Why won’t He take this from me?
Then I realize, He is preparing the way for my healing.
I’ve begun the process of healing and the process of forgiveness that I’d long abandoned.
The shame I used to feel in having these issues are wiped away, because I know His love for me.
I wasn’t created for this world.
I have felt His presence during numerous sleepless nights.
I have worshiped and praised when I was so low that I didn’t think I could take another step.
One foot in front of the other. That’s been life over the last year.
Like Dori on Finding Nemo, I “just keep swimming, just keep swimming.”
I am beginning to see the light. The fog in my brain is lifting. I am starting to sleep again.
I’m understanding that this season is merely a season and is not the defining factor of my life.
Not for a moment did He or will He forsake me. On the contrary, He lifts me up and pulls me through.
I am getting stronger. This battle has already been won.
Jesus is the Victor…my Hero.
My healing is coming.
