Hello world. It’s been quite awhile since I have blogged. Well, I just want you all to know that I am busy coping with the changes in my life and overcoming grief. It is a process, but it is really giving me perspective of who is really there for me and how I really need to live my life. With that being said, I have been leaning on God now more than I ever have in my entire life. I have experienced spiritual things in my vulnerability that have shown me that no matter who comes in and out of my life, my God is always there for me and I need to strive to live for him. Yes, I was always a Christian, but I am a quite turned around Christian now during/after my grief. I have found God’s love even more meaningful and comforting. He has let me know that he is always there for me and that even though I no longer have earthly parents, I will always have him as my heavenly Father and he will be looking out for me as he loves me more than I could ever imagine.
I have been in and out of depression since my father died and God has always pulled me out. This past week has been horrible for me and I have laid in bed for days along with hardly eating. Then among all of this I thought of when Jesus woke the dying child and said, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!” I realized that I had to get out of bed and live my life. That this can’t put me in a coma. God is there for me and he will get me out of this and onto the life he has planned for me. I have made many changes in my life. I have given up all popular music and listen ONLY to Christian music. I am also reading Christian books about overcoming sorrow and living your life in a Godly way. I am now truly devoting my life to God and living it in his way.
With all this being said, here comes the main point of this blog. This blog is going to be different now. Sure, it may be about overcoming 20-something-year-old struggles. But, it will be about doing it with the use of God. This blog will now be a more Christian based one as I feel that is what God is calling me to do. Now, if this isn’t what you are looking for: fine. Feel free to unfollow. I have now been called to use my writing skills and devote it to God. Just a warning.
Final advice. For all people going through a hard time right now, I will close with these words: Matthew 11:28-30: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Also remember that if you turn to God, he WILL provide. God is good.
