As this song implies, we need Jesus to free us from the burden of our sins so that we can live our lives to our full potential. But before I dive into how that song has become one of my new favorite songs, I should mention briefly my journey to Christ.
I have always considered myself a Christian, however, most of my life I never fully lived like one, until recently when my world began to crash once more. I felt severe depression creep up on me to the point where I loathed myself and wondered why I was even here on Earth? Was God even real? I wondered those questions and more until one day at my weakest, I tried to commit suicide and failed. Then, a few weeks later I tried again. After the second time I failed I realized that that is not the answer either, and I felt trapped in a world that scared me to death, and even I could not achieve that much on my own.
I started to realize that I needed Christ back in my life and this time, fully accept him into my heart. Back in June I finally cried out to Jesus and asked for his help and since then I have been noticing my life getting better, starting with loving myself.
Now, I look back and am glad I failed attempting suicide twice because how my life is going now it's well worth living and living it for God. He gave me many talents like writing, baking/cooking, strong computer skills, and even the blessing of feeling happy when I can make others happy and smile. I want to use my talents along with my education in computers, and future education in nursing to become a missionary nurse.
The best part, I have my foot in the door already to become a missionary nurse as I work at a medical clinic as a receptionist and that clinic is a Christian based clinic that still goes on mission trips! What a blessing in disguise, or at least I didn't see it until recently.
My name is Sarah, which means princess, so therefore, I am a Princess of Christ and today is day one of my blog that will detail many aspects of my life, past, present, and future, and how it made me who I am today or who I want to be through Christ who gives me strength. ♥
