Amazon reports that Water Walker “reminds us that it’s possible to live free of the hurt that keeps our souls in chains.” Doesn’t that sound great? Living free from a chained soul? I can attest to that freedom. For a huge portion of my life, I suffered from clinical depression and anorexia nervosa. I didn’t know a day that didn’t involve a certain amount of pain. I felt like a prisoner in my own body. And I wanted out. I hated myself and wondered daily what I was doing on earth. I felt like I was taking up space. But the Lord led me to an amazing Christian counselor who worked with me for many years to tackle my demons. It wasn’t easy. I had to unearth years of depression, abusive relationships, an out-of-control eating disorder and give all that pain to God. There were times where I walked out of her office absolutely spent, scared to deal with any more pain. But guess what The Lord helped me to do? Forgive myself. Forgive myself for not getting off of my own back. Forgive myself for my self-hatred. Forgive myself for not trusting Jesus Christ with all of my pain.
Forgiveness is not easy, but it is so worth it. We cannot live our lives effectively for Christ until we tackle forgiveness. And our situations are vastly different, but Christ can set us free. All we have to do is ask Him. God Bless each one of you! <><
