Nothing can Separate Us...
When we have lost that spark to live with no motivation to go forward, God has made a way for us. He desires us to stand strong, and dig deep and hold on to that hope even when all else seems to fail us.
I have had to do a bit of soul searching in my life to see where it is going. During some parts of this journey...I have wanted to stop and just not go any further. I have attempted to abort my journey because some situations in my life have been too hard to handle.
A lot of you-some may not-know I have struggled with mental illness on and off for many years. It hasn't been easy to make the decisions I have made, but I know that God has directed my path.
I'm in such a place of peace and courage that I never could have imagined I would have been able to arrive at. A part of me deep inside is a fighter, and I never want to give up my life or have myself labeled as a lost cause.
The world says that someone with a mental illness can't have a normal life. I would like to say my life is as normal as it can get. It hasn't been as easy as some people think.
But, life wasn't meant to be easy for anyone, no matter what route God has you to take, you still have to make some tough decisions to get to where God would have you to go, and I pray that you are led by God's Holy Spirit when you have to make those tough calls in your life.
It has taken my many years to let go of what man thinks, and to be concerned with what God thinks. That was very difficult to be delivered from what other people think of me, and I still struggle with it at times. God has done it.
My message to the world would be to never give up. God has got so much in store for you, if you trust Him, and bright plans for your future. If you need help, get help. God can use doctors and can use medicine if you need them.
If you feel separated from God, and His loving-kindness, I pray that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind to experience all that The Father has for you, in Jesus' name.
I pray for a divine overflow of his very nature to be birthed inside you. Jesus is only a prayer away. Call on His name and you will be saved in more ways than one.
This is my absolute favorite verse of all time, it says so much to me.
NOTHING CAN SEPARATE ME FROM GOD'S LOVE!
...And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow---not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below---indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
