I see the light! There’s a light ahead, at the end of this seemingly never-ending tunnel I’ve been traveling and it’s brought hope. For the first time this week and in many days, I’m beginning to feel like myself. I can see the real me coming back out and it’s great!
Depression is not going to win anymore. I’m not saying I won’t still have some down moments, but because of my reaching out asking for support, I feel incredibly loved. Love and faith are going to get me through and help me reclaim my life. God is number one in my life, and I realized that I’ve slowly but surely let that slip. He has to be number one because my Savior is the one who makes all things possible. Sure, medications are good and of course are needed, but without God, I don’t believe that I can truly make it out the other side.
God gives each of us only what we can handle, and while these hardships may seem to be too much, they aren’t. I learned SO much about my faith and trusting in Him last year with my dream, and I need to not let that change. It’s most definitely not easy to put Him first, but it has to be that way. I’m going to make mistakes and have my moments and days where I question things, but it always needs to come back to my faith, my Lord.
Like I said, it’s a work in progress and I’m ready to step up and take on the challenge. Just like training for a marathon requires hard work and sacrifices, so does working on our faith. Getting up at 3am for a Saturday morning long run is hard. Dedicating my life to Christ, waking up each day putting Him at the forefront is also hard. But, not impossible. Like I said before, all things are possible with Christ!
Thanks to everyone who visits this blog and continues to support me. It means so much to me to be able to be myself and hopefully in the process inspire people. Life is a bump road, but we are capable of so many amazing things and getting to the finish line with a smile on our faces.
