It was the night before my 12th birthday, and my sister and I were holding each other crying in my kitchen. Tomorrow everything would change for us. My family was shifting, both of us splitting separate ways. At this point I knew God, I just couldn’t figure out where He was. When you’re in Jr. High you barely can get in control of your emotions, so it was hard to believe that your family was going to be okay. It felt like my life had failure written all over it. Thoughts began to race in my head like what is going to happen to us? We will get through it? Am I always going to feel this ugly? Those thoughts surrounded me. Years of hurt, anger, immense insecurity, and unforgiveness. I believed God so loved the world, but me. But He came in at the perfect time (as always) and moved around the puzzle pieces of my life. Somehow I ended up at a private school I didn’t think I could even go to, best friends that genuinely loved their lives, and a church that introduced me to the overwhelming love of Jesus. It wasn’t an overnight change, it was moments that began to shift me from the inside out. I saw myself as beautiful, my relationships with my family began to get better & I woke up everyday believing that God is for me & has nothing but the absolute best for my life, my future & my legacy. My whole life was changed when I came close to what God is doing @at_newlife. If you’re in a hard time in your life, God sees you & loves you & the best is coming your way. This is my story.
