I have no one. I have no one, except God, in my life.
God is my Comforter. God is my Rock. God is my Everything. I praise the Lord for being my Anchor in the midst of this storm.
~”We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.”~Hebrews 6:19, NIV~
Recently, I lost my job. While I will not go into the reason as to why I was let go, God is still good and still sovereign. God allowed me to lose my job so that I can depend upon Him to meet my needs.
Also, I feel really alone during this time of the Coronavirus pandemic. Not many of my Christian friends, both brothers and sisters in Christ, have taken the initiative to check in on me to see how I am doing these days. I’m not saying that all of them have not checked in on me. I am saying that most of them have not checked on me to see how I am doing. I pray that God will open their eyes and that they will repent for how they are treating me, even if it is unintentional.
I also opened up about my mental illness for the first time on social media because the Lord led me to open up about it. I cannot help but notice that since I opened up about it on social media that my friends on social media are commenting less and liking less. I knew that this would probably happen, but God is using this to prove to me to trust in Him and not in man to make me content.
~”Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.”~Philippians 4:11, ESV~
I have Bi Polar Disorder. I am also a child of God. God loves me. God loves me irregardless of my Bi Polar Disorder diagnosis. My friends on social media and outside of social media can change how and what they think of me because of my Bi Polar Disorder diagnosis. God’s Word never changes and will always remain constant in my life.
~”Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”~Hebrews 13:8, NLT~
I thank God for these storms that He is allowing to take place in my life. I praise God for using these storms to reach me and teach me to lean in on Him and to trust in Him. I know that God will provide for me a better job. I know that God is still good and still sovereign, even in the midst of my Bi Polar Disorder diagnosis.
Even if I do not know what the outcome of these storms are in my life, God is still good and still sovereign. Even though I do not know how God is going to use me to make an impact on the world and those in it through the book that I wrote (once it is published), God is still good and still sovereign. Even when my family ostracizes me and my friends on social media comment and like less and less, God is still good and still sovereign.
I thank the Lord for these storms. I am excited to see how God is going to end these storms and still prove His goodness and sovereignty in the midst of these storms. I will continue to claim the promises of God and remain strong in Him. God is my Strength. God is good. And God is sovereign.
Please continue to pray for me and my book (it is not yet published and should be published by June or July 2021) and that God will favor the editing and publishing process with my book with the Christian self-publishing company that my book is with in this moment. Thank you and God bless you!
