Because of Faith
"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." ~ Psalm 139:13-16 If I told you that I have had an easy life I would be lying. As a victim of childhood abuse and as a result of that abuse, growing up chained to the horrible addiction of self-injury and bulimia, I have surely had my share of heartache. However, despite all the odds that have been stacked against me, I have been blessed way more than I deserve. On December 18, 2010 I married my high school sweetheart. At the young age of 19 everyone thought that we were crazy, but after spending 5 years courting him I had no doubts in my mind. God had sent me the perfect mate. Throughout this first year of our marriage we have had some very hard times. He lost his job, my parent’s divorced, and we were excommunicated from his side of the family. However, God has been faithful through it all.
