I was in the midst of an unbearable storm. It hit me fast and hard. All of the trauma was flooding out at once and I was screaming and crying and scared I wouldn't make it home. I was quickly approaching a bridge and knew where I needed to steer my car, and in that moment I turned my radio on and all the way up in an attempt not to come back to reality. Maybe it's ok, was playing and the first words I heard were the chorus. This song saved my life, literally...
I just came to say thank you to We are Messengers for this place for people to come to. Sometimes it can help just to verbalize what you are going through. Also, I saw you at a church concert and your stories and faith changed my life. Thank you so much for that.
My freshman year of college I received a message telling me that I was ugly,fat,manipulative,dramatic, useless,a waste of time and space,and everything else under the sun. It hit me hard I stopped eating, I went to the gym a lot,I distanced myself from everyone. I hated myself. But then I found myself going to God about it. I realized that no matter what God thinks I'm beautiful and loves me for me. This song came out a year after that and when I hear it, it reminds me it's okay to not be okay.
I've struggled in the past with anxiety and depression. Sometimes I get knocked down, but because I know God understands and is with me, I get back up. Know that God loves you, is with you always, and you can go to Him with whatever you're going through. When others fail you, He will not.
I was in an abusive relationship for nearly 4 years. Things quickly turned. I felt like I had nowhere to go and no one would ever believe me. I decided to go back to church. God met me where I was at. He gave me strength to leave. God has blessed me with a loving husband and two kids. I still struggle, but I have a hope that never goes away. I am loved.
