The rise…

The rise from depression and anxiety has been a feat in itself. The ebb and flow of the uncomfortable highs and lows of not being able to describe the exact reason for that particular moment of heaviness or the fast pace racing of my mind.

At times my faith seems stronger in the midst of my “fog”, its in those vulnerable moments where I find myself surrendering as I read the words from my favorite book, the verses of hope in my bible seem to jump from the pages, as I grasp onto each message of truth. Its in my realness that I realize, I no longer am depending on my own ability to overcome, but I lean into a deep longing and yearning for the transformation of my heart by the one who calls me his own. The abolishing of “fake it” till you make it or pretending to be “ok”, these strategies no longer work in the midst of my authenticity.

As I grasp the uneasiness of healing from trauma and line up my thoughts and actions to truth, moving forward…my life will never be the same.

Trauma…

Healing from trauma is a one day at a time process, and is never a “one size fits all” approach. The stigma behind mental illness continues to keep people suffering in silence. If you are hurting, please reach out to the following hotline for help, support or someone just to talk to:

1-800-273-TALK (8255)

You are not alone, you matter and God loves you.

Love is not blind…

“Let us (unselfishly) love and seek the best for one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves (others) is born of God and know God (through personal experience). The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God (does not and never did know him), for God is love (He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature).”- 1 John 4:7-8

carrying the wait…

Definition of WAIT: stay where one is or delay action until a particular time or until something else happens.

I will no longer be held captive to the ideology of carrying the WAIT.
