With my own hands I tried to take the life that God gave me. Everything in me wanted the sweet victory and taste of death. Oh that enemy of our souls would not deceive your heart as he did mine.
So much around this event is a mystery, but there are truths abounding too.
TRUTH: God is with me. He always was, always is and always will be-I WAS NEVER ALONE.
TRUTH: God is my JOY. And joy is a choice. I can choose to wallow in the filth ones of this world and my life, or I can choose to look to the Lord, my God and put a smile on my face. I AM NOT DEFINED BY DEPRESSION. CHRIST HAS SET ME FREE.
TRUTH: Nothing I have done, or ever will do can change God’s love for me.
TRUTH: I am loved with an everlasting love.
TRUTH: I am alive today as proof that God is real, alive and ever present.
Oh, that the God of all would speak HIS OBJECTIVE TRUTH into your heart today.
I should have died that night. What I did to my body should have killed me. But God saw something in me worth saving; I see it now too.
I am tagging those who I remember that night and the following week in hopes to remind you how great our God is and the beautiful things He has done in my life and yours.
Tonight I get to celebrate God’s victory in my life with fellow followers of Christ. Tonight I get to join hundreds at God’s altar and sing His praise. Today I get to proclaim that God is my exceeding JOY.”
