I want to start by saying the following content includes a lot of Jesus talk so if you want to stop reading, by all means stop. But I’d be lying if I said I’ve gotten this far on my own.
I’ve always gone to church & listened to Christian music & I’ve always considered myself a Christian. I really THOUGHT I knew, but I never really knew what trusting Jesus with my whole life actually felt like, until now. When you’re laying in a hospital bed, lifeless, you really get to thinking. & when your faith is all you have left, you hold on for dear life & you run with it. & I wanna encourage everyone reading that Jesus has really changed my life & my perspective & He can change yours too! & I want everyone reading to know that you can always look me up on Facebook if you have any questions or just need someone to talk to. I may be young but I’ve been through a lot & it helps to talk to someone who understands.
Before I got sick, I thought I had everything I could ever want. I had a few really good friends, I was in love with my best friend & I thought I had a really good relationship with my family. But after I got sick, I only had a few people text me or come see me & I’ve found some really good friendships in my therapists & nurses that I know will last a lifetime. My relationship with my husband is incredibly strong now, not that it wasn’t before, but we’ve faced some really tough trials & came out on the other side! Oh & we’re pregnant!! I can’t stress enough how great God is y’all. & we find out what we’re having this weekend & of course, I’ll tell y’all all about it! & last but certainly not least, my family is closer than ever now. For those of y’all who don’t know me, my mom & I have always been sooo close. But now, it’s just crazy how close we are. I never in my life imagined being any closer with my mom than we already were, but we are now. She’s literally my best friend.
That’s just my story & I owe everything I’ve ever been through to Jesus Christ & I will always stand by that! A lot of people would look at what I’ve been through & feel sorry for me but never ever feel sorry for me because what I’ve been through has 1)magnified my faith 2)strengthened my relationships with my husband & my family & 3)grown our family. I shouldn’t be alive right now & instead I have a baby growing inside of me & I get the wonderful opportunity to spend time with my family every day, something I took for granted before I got sick. So for those of you who think believing in Jesus is ridiculous, always remember my story. I’m living, breathing proof that believing in Jesus is NOT nor will ever be ridiculous. I really & truly believe that my faith in Jesus Christ is the reason I’m alive today.
