I’ve come to an awesome and somewhat terrifying reality. I have no family to rely on in this life. I’m a yankee far from “home,” living alone in the South with a traumatic brain injury and having survived a serious suicide attempt with a shotgun…Things are a bit hectic and tough lol. What am I to do?!

After I lost everything, physical looks, money, vehicle, possessions, self-esteem, and any worldly attachments, I’ve been relying on myself quite a lot. I’ve learned a lot about myself through this: grown tremendously and changed a lot

Most of all I’ve discovered I’m not alone in this. Jesus my God, Savior and Lord has been my rock: and His Church has been my anchor! I cannot imagine doing this on my own, and am so thankful I don’t need to. The road is rough, treacherous and uncertain, but I know my guide is absolutely trustworthy and knows the way home! I am so thankful for God’s protection, provision, guidance, and mercy in all this. I’m so thankful for Christ’s body, His Church in caring and loving as He.

I am not alone! I’ve lost the whole world and gained it back as it should be one hundred fold! We are not alone in, Christ: take heart brothers and sisters, our, God lives and reigns, and is with us!

Father God we praise and thank you for your care! Thank You so much for Your provision of us, for guiding, leading, and protecting us. We love you Lord, You are indeed a Good Good Father! We rely on and glorify You completely, in Christ’s Holy name. Amen
