Not many people know this but I am a Christian and do believe that God can pull you out of the darkest places.
There was a time in my life when I was lost. I had a baby at 21 with someone who just wasn’t the right person for me…I’ll leave it at that. I was miserable and wasn’t sure how I was going to take care of a baby on my own. I was working for a church daycare and was really close with the pastors wife at the time. I talked to her daily about my struggles and she kept encouraging me to come to service one Sunday. I would just brush it off and continue to wonder when I would have it easy. One morning after a huge fight with Adylee’s dad, I woke up and decided to go to church. I didn’t know anyone but the pastor and his wife and my other Co-worker. So I sat with them with my 3 month old and felt like the sermon for that week spoke to me. One of the worship songs was Walk by Faith. I knew from that day on, I found my church home.
Over the next few years, I would have a very up and down relationship with church. But, one thing that never waivers is my faith. Walk by Faith has been one song that I always heard when I would need it the most. When I felt like giving up so a couple years ago, I got it tattooed on the side of my foot. It is my favorite tattoo to date (besides the one for Adylee). It’s right there every day and every moment whenever I need the reminder that I walked through some hard times but thanks to faith…I have overcome them.
Thanks for sharing your faith
