Anxiety is love’s greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.
– Anais Nin
There is power in prayer! See yourself the way God sees you. I used to write encouraging words on a sticky note & place them on my mirror so I would be reminded of how I am created in God’s image as well. You are not alone. Declare that you will fight through this and rebuke that spirit of depression, anxiety, and/or suicide in the name of Jesus!
My tattoo; A reminder of what I have conquered. A reminder of who He is. A reminder that even when I fall, as a warrior I will continue to fight. I know how it feels. I’ve been there. The anxiety, depression, thoughts of suicide, and even attempting it. I did not want to be here. I have tried ending my life many times. After waking up so many times from suicide attempts, I always questioned why I hadn’t passed away… God would always tell me, “Hold on, just a little bit longer.” The enemy told me I was a mistake. But, God told me I have a reason to be here.
Listen, I don’t know what you are going through but no weapons formed against you will prosper. In Jeremiah 29:11 it says “For I know the plans I have for you… plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I am a living testimony of what God can do, hope, and power in prayer. Hold on; Just a little bit longer. Don’t worry. Look at how far you’ve come. You will defeat those battles. These chains will be broken in the name of Jesus! You are beautiful and you have a purpose! God will release all of His promises for you. You just have to hold on even with the little faith that you have. That’s all it takes. Stay strong!
