As the sun shines brightly
I smile upon the arrival of the brand new day
I know each day is for His glory
Each day is made of His love and joy
I know of His love for many will never run dry
He gives us hope and a place to rely
He’ll be our companion when we’re lonely
The place to find rest when we’re weary
The place to be comforted when we’re teary
There’s no reason to turn away
But to seek His face daily.
Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking about my faith. There has been a lot I’ve needed to change in my life personally and spiritually. I’ve been spending more time with God than I have in years. With the time I was away, I made some drastic changes and I’ve been faced with many obsticles.
With school coming to an end the first week of June, I was becoming overwhelmed, I thought it was depression. My friend told me that it was probably just anxiety with school and what not. I agreed. Little did I know this feeling continued during the summer. Nights I’ve spent crying myself to sleep for no reason, days where I’ve wanted to just be alone, my friends getting irritated that I wasn’t spending time with them, and a constant battle between myself and I. I thank God that I’m not suicidal! It could just be me not having the guts to go through with it, not to mention the selfishness behind it and the pain I’ve felt knowing that two of my friends were suicidal, I didn’t want to put anyone through that. So this is what I have been going through the past month and a half.
I don’t really talk to any of my followers here, but all I ask is if you guys could pray for me, and for God to give me a new strength every morning, that would be beyond great!
