If I could tell my 15-year-old self something it would be, “Learn how to be ok with who you are...step into who God made you to be, and don’t fall into the trap of caring so much what other people think of you. Don’t put your worth in that. Put your worth in how God sees you & cling to it every.single.day...because adulting is going to be hard.” Oh if only I could go back and tell her...warn her...be strong for her.
I can’t go back. But God is relentlessly pursuing and healing my heart NOW, reminding me of His TRUTH against all the lies and traps I’ve fallen into over the years.
Tonight, nervous and still a bit in denial, yet knowing it’s what I needed to do, I stayed after leading worship at #celebraterecovery for the Co-Dependency smallgroup... and my goodness, it was like a breath of fresh air. A weight off my shoulders.
If I can leave you with one thing, friend, it’s this: It’s ok to NOT be ok. It’s normal to NOT be ok. We all struggle with stuff. But there is SO much hope found in Jesus Christ. Give him your heart and ask him to heal it. Buckle up - he’ll do it! 🙌🏼
❤️Double tap if you relate. Let’s walk this hard healing road together.
