My husband calls me a seeker. And, I guess I am. I think we are all seekers in our own way. All I know is my greatest desire is to have a personal relationship with God and to live out His will and His purpose for my life.
My journey has been one of discovery and recovery. They say we all have a cross to bear, and I think that’s true. Some crosses are physical, some mental, and some emotional. My struggles over the years have manifested in physical ways. I experienced an emotionally traumatic event around the age of 11 that changed the trajectory of my life forever. I buried my wounded spirit with food at first and then later, alcohol and drugs. I sought love in all the wrong places and from all the wrong people. I turned my back on God and ran fully into the arms of pain and destruction. That’s all I believed I deserved. At the age of 23, God loving reached me and plucked me out of my mire of despair and placed me on a path of recovery — physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
My story has many twists and turns. I believe God is at work in our lives every moment. He desires to be involved in every little aspect of our lives. His love for us is immeasurable.
