Our series is coming to a close but with every ending, God has prepared a beautiful beginning. There are several guest posts waiting in the wings and I am excited to share with you thoughts and experiences from current Christian Singles. And don’t forget about the giveaway this Friday, January 31st!
Ten years ago my heart was in so much pain, I could hardly take it. I was depressed for several months. Sometimes I am hesitant to share what I went through because some say that someone like me should have never gone through anything like that. Perhaps they’re right. I don’t know.
But I was at a crossroads, trying to make sense of the disappointments in my life.
I lost a lot of weight in a short period of time. Sounds good to some, but when you weigh 127 pounds, losing another 10 to 20 isn’t a healthy option.
There were whispers that maybe I was anorexic, or sick, or just fasting a whole lot. My clothes were fitting loosely, but I didn’t pay close attention to how small I was getting.
I’m usually the type of person that eats when they “feel” hungry. But sorrow dimmed all other feelings going on inside. It did so to the extent that I was not aware of hunger. I had no appetite. Therefore, food was the last thing on my mind.
At a routine doctor’s visit, is when everything got real. I was taken aback by her concern of my weight loss. She scared me enough to see that I needed to make some changes in my life.
For me, it all came down to one day and one moment. In that moment I cried, and then I got angry, and then I started my journey to get my joy back. It didn’t happen over night, but it did happen.
I shared all of that to say one simple thing….
It will not always
be like this.
Maybe you’re frustrated that you haven’t fallen in love. Maybe you’re dealing with pain of another kind.
The truth is, that God will carry you through it all and soon you will be on the other side. For every small step you take in faith, God carries you forward with giant leaps.
Months before the doctor’s office, I could not see myself healthy, happy, and in love. But look at God!
Hold On. Pain Ends.
