After the last couple months, I can see a healing taken place within me. I have been living up in the state of Wisconsin for about 3 years now and have felt very alone. I use to live in Tennessee and was constantly surround by family and friends, but up here I have my husband's family and not really any close friends. But, in August, when I started to feel depressed due to the medication I was on, I wanted to kill myself to stop the pain. I believe God knows the pain I was suffering because he sent my friend, Kerrie to me to help me. She asked me to be a part of the praise band at our church because she said that God was telling her to. Every since then, I am no longer thinking of killing myself like I was. I am healing. I have no more migraines ever since I went to the Barlowgirl concert at High Point Church (Madison, WI). I feel like I need to say this because if people hear my story, they know we all have similiar stories. God can heal anything. He knows our suffering.
The following quote in wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarlowGirl from the Barlow sisters caught my attention:
"We believe that God has one perfect man already chosen for us; therefore we have no need to worry ourselves in searching for him. When the time is right, we know God will bring us together. In the mean time, we are not hiding in a closet avoiding all males, we are still living our lives, just without the pressure of having to have a boyfriend."
Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 7:32-35 that unmarried life makes it easier for us to focus on the most important thing in life - God.
Thank you for your dedication. I too have been sorrowed by the falls from grace. I heard you or superchick was crossing over? i don't know what that means exactly for you, but I pray the best for you. Here is a verse for your change into the secular world...Mattheww 6:44 "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." (Also Matthew 6:29..this is the work og God, and Luke 10:19...I give you power!)
Well, hello, hello... It’s been a long time since I've written one of these bad boys. And I'm hoping to make it more of a regular thing. Cause let’s just admit it.—Who doesn't want to read what's going on in my little head? You know you love it!
