In our daily lives we all go through struggles, whether it's family issues, school issues, work issues, or even issues accepting ourselves for who we truly are. Today I am here to tell you that you are not alone in this crazy roller coaster that we call our lives. It is a constant battle from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep. We all have our ups and downs but the key is to keep fighting through it all regardless of how hard it gets.
I don't say this just to sound nice to you or to bring your spirt up even though I hope to. I say this because I've been in your place of struggle. A position of frustration, sadness, feeling hopeless at life, pride, hatred, anxiety, you name it.
Before I give you one of my many testimonies...
I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Janelle. I am a 22 year old girl that
decided to give her life to Jesus at the age of 18.
I can honestly say this has been one of the best decisions
of my life. I am a worshipper and a writer. I look forward
to impacting lives through my blogs because I know what is
like to walk the hard road to salvation while still having
a constant battle with your flesh and mind.
So... WELCOME and remember this is a FREE and SAFE zone.
NO NEGATIVITY ALLOWED :D
... About a year ago I went through one of the worst experiences of my life. My parents separated after 20 years of marriage. For years I lived in a household filled with violence and emotional torture. It was all finally coming to an end.. Well in others eyes, I'd say because inside I felt worse than ever. My faith in God was truly tested. All I remember asking God was "Why?" ... "Why me"... The hurt I felt inside was something that till this day I can't describe with words. All I know is that there was such a void in my heart that only God was able to fill. After trying to fight my own battles and constantly failing at accomplishing anything. I finally surrendered my family, my emotions, my entire life to God and it was in that very moment that He showed me His unconditional and everlasting love.
Yes, I am Janelle, "The Christian Girl" but I am still human. I lived a situation where I doubted God, I criticized His ability to fix my family's former situation and I became anxious to what tomorrow would bring. However, I am here to show you that christian or not, we all have our moments of struggles but remember that just like there is such thing as darkness, there is also such thing as light. In this case my light is Jesus Christ.
So.. If this is you just know, you are never alone and is never too late to seek the kingdom of God. He will always welcome you and come to your rescue without hesitation.
This is just a piece of a story of a girl that a year ago had hate in her heart for her biological father and now can testify that Jesus Christ has restored that father and daughter relationship. It is still not perfect but it's way better than it has ever been.
Today, I encourage you to keep pushing through it all because something GREAT is waiting for you at the other side of tribulation.
God bless you ALL! :D
