I wanted to apologize for not posting a blog on Monday. I had a busy weekend with 3 photoshoots (which is good!) so I wasn't able to sit down and type up a blog. I will try to have a new blog up on Monday, but it's my birthday weekend, so we will have to see!
As I come up on my 24th birthday, I am amazed by God's grace and mercy. When I was 18 and 19, I was in such a deep, dark depression that I wanted to end my life. I thought of ways I could kill myself without anyone knowing what I had done. I hated who I was. I thought that no one loved me. I felt worthless and unimportant. Wow! What a change God can make!
I got to the point where I was sick of my depression. I was tired of letting depression win. I made a choice to serve God, even if I didn't feel Him. I had to remind myself every single day when I woke up that I had to walk by faith and not by sight. I didn't understand why I was dealing with depression and anxiety. I thought Christians didn't have to deal with those things. I was wrong! Looking back over the past few years of my life, I can see where God brought my from and I couldn't be more thankful. I have the opportunity to help others who come into my work so broken and scared. I get to witness to them about God's love, grace, and mercy. I have the privilege to watch God open their eyes and hearts to His truth and it's the greatest blessing!
Like I said, I will try to have a new blog up Monday, but I'm going to try and make the most of my birthday weekend with my friends and family. So, if I am unable to post on Monday, please forgive me.
In the meantime, I would love it if you would check out my vlogs! The newest one is below!
