& then one day, He came to me.
He came to me and He said,
"Daughter, slow down. Stop taking on more than you can handle."
I didn’t listen.
He came again and said,
"Daughter, stop! Stop and let me help you."
I ignored Him.
I had spun so far out of control that I crashed. I was no longer able to wake up and fake the smile, and no longer able to make it look like I had it all together. I had done so much damage, and had carried so much baggage that I couldn’t take it anymore.
& then he came again.
This time, He said:
"Daughter, what are you doing? I laid down my life for you, and this is how you repay me? You’ve had enough, and I’ve had enough of watching you destroy yourself. You may be young, but that doesn’t give you an excuse to waste the life that I have given you."
All I could do was cry.
"Daughter, come with me. Walk with me."
& from then on … He’s had a hold on me.
Don’t get me wrong! This journey is no easy journey. I’ve gotten tired, I’ve gotten irritated, I’ve gotten upset … I’ve crawled away, I’ve walked away, I’ve ran away … but once He has His hand in your life .. once you’ve accepted Christ as your Lord & savior … He’s not letting you go that easy.
& I thank God.
He’s my healer. He’s my redeemer. He’s my savior. He’s my friend. He’s my everything.
I’ve made a conscious decision to give my life to Christ; to let go and let God. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made.
He saved me from myself.
