In 2013 my marriage unraveled. Years of deterioration collided with tragedy and loss and I found myself in a place of hopelessness and despair. I remember being paralyzed in my own pain, unable to function and on some days I couldn’t even get out of bed. I met with my counselor and desperately pleaded with her for help. “Give me two years,” she offered empathetically. I looked at her through tear-filled eyes and committed to two intense years of therapy that would eventually turn into almost four.
She led me on a faith-filled journey of authenticity and vulnerability…down a path of healing, restoration and redemption. It was such a powerful experience that I vowed to pay it forward.
So to those who have walked through divorce, loss, betrayal, depression, anxiety and/or fear (gosh, haven’t we all) and are looking for hope and ultimately, a restoration of your soul, I say welcome. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” It’s time to find that sweet place of deep breaths, intense introspection and discovery of the fullness of life.
