Living to spread the name of Jesus Christ!
Oh dear me :( I’m so sorry you’re feeling depressed! And if I can be honest, I know what you mean when you don’t feel good or pretty enough. I struggle with that from time. But, my darling (if I may)! I believe that you are beautiful and I believe that God has made you wonderfully and fearfully. Whether you have faith or not, I believe He created you while you were still in the womb (Psalm 139:13) - Google those numbers if you’d like! In terms of university, I was so scared too. And you know what happened? I ended up failing and having to do an extra year - just to get into uni! I’m not saying that’s what’s going to happen to you, but I’m saying that there is no need to be so afraid. There are other ways that we can enter into tertiary study! Do the best you can, and if it doesn’t work out, realise that there is a REASON for EVERYTHING :) Try not to pay attention to other people’s expectations, because you’ll find no happiness there! That’s what I’m learning as of a few days ago! With the cutting, I am so proud that you could refrain for 3 years.. and hey, we’re all human. We all mess up. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with God’s love but He assures us that we are so precious to Him. That because He created us, our bodies should be treated with love and gentleness. We are so precious, in fact, that His only son (Jesus the Christ) died for all the wrongs things we will ever do in our lives! He was scarred and beaten and hung on a cross to die. Heavy stuff! There’s a poem too, about cutting. It goes: “Do not be ashamed of your scars. After all, Jesus has scars too. Some people believe he got them in love, so you can be free to no longer make scars on you.” We don’t have to punish ourselves or release our sadness through cutting or drinking or smoking! We are free!! Feel free to msg me privately on here, if you want to. Or even anonymously. Remember, you don’t have to do this alone! I don’t want you to, either way. If you want to know more, here are some links I go to when I’m in need of support or have questions regarding faith: http://www.gotquestions.org/who-is-Jesus.html http://gotquestions.org/
God bless you x
WHAT!! Thank you so much :) And you are beautiful!
..because I’m under-weight? HAHA. It is in my genes though. I’ve gone to the doctor about it and he literally laughed and said “Eat more lollies” like ok then lol
This is the second question I’ve gotten haha. I’m Christian :) What makes you think I’m Catholic?
19 years young lol :) HOW OLD ARE YOU?
Does it matter? LOL. I seldom ever act upon it. Let’s just say no hahaha
I have had two boyfriends in the past :) I am currently living the single life and loving every second of it! Devoting my time and effort where it is most needed in this world!
No way! Why would you say that? We all have strengths and weaknesses, and those are exactly what another person can help us with. To expand our breadth of ability and challenge us in our faults!
Yes, so many times! Even unintentionally! Haha. Well, when someone does challenge me, I do try to take my time before responding - whether face-to-face or online. I am human and have feelings (and sometimes words hurt)! Nonetheless, I push that aside and realize that the Truth is Jesus Christ, and through faith/prayer and the Bible, I am able to give the person a full, thoughtful answer. Sometimes it’s not as elaborate, but I speak as God Wills me to. If a Bible verse comes to mind mid-sentence, I go ahead and use it. If God reminds me of my past battles, I testify :) I know He puts me in situations to help people in the future, as well as to ‘bear with one another’ through struggles in the Body of Christ; whether they’re next door, in my family or half-way across the world.
Though I must say, I have been belligerent to some people. I do/have lost my cool more than once. However, those situations only remind me that I must humble myself and not be proud; I don’t know everything and that in itself is a wakeup call. I should always look to the God of the universe for guidance and counsel :)
