Thank you to my struggles
March 28, 2019
This may sound weird, but I’d like to say thank you to all my struggles. Thank you to my depression, low self-esteem, abusive relationship, and mental abuse I inflicted on myself. Lastly, I would like to say thank you to Cerebral Palsy.
I know you are reading this thinking that all of these things are negative or at least thought of as negative but they are actually what the other side of faith looked like for me at one point. We know that the Bible says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen,” (Hebrews 11:1) but that side also comes with being talked about and afflicted. These are all things I experience with saying that I have faith and that God made no mistake when he made me. So I say thank you to everything that tried to come against me. It cracked me a bit but it didn’t break me. I owe the biggest thank you to Cerebral Palsy because this is something I couldn’t drink or sex away. All I could do was embrace it because this was one thing that wasn’t going anywhere no matter what I did or how I felt. What we’re going through is probably nothing compared to what others are going through. We must learn to look at the negative and find the positive, learn how to say thank you instead of why me.
“Be thankful in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. “ 1 Thessalonians 5:18
