Whoa! Two posts in the same week.. that rarely happens..
I was in a Facebook group this morning for people with Trichotillomania and this person posted they needed the suicide hotline information.
Which triggered SOMETHING inside me.
I haven’t discussed this part of my life on this blog yet because it’s fairly new, only a handful of posts so far..
But it’s a HUGE part of my life so this post on Facebook triggered this post for me.
I’m am a believer.
What does that mean?
I believe without a doubt that Jesus Christ is my Lord.
So now that we have that out of the way..
…I should also mention that I’m a student of theology. I go to bible college.
I’m not sure if I’ll ever be a pastor or anything, but I do go to school currently for this Subject 😉
Why? I mean why go to school for that if you’re not gonna use the degree for anything?
Revelation not knowledge.
I have a business that I own with my husband that has nothing to do with the reason I go to bible college.
When you’re really interested in something, you study it!
Whether it’s a diet, a fad, a mental disorder **clears throat** or whatever – you study what interests you, right?
I’m someone with a passion for learning the things of God and I love Jesus Christ.
Okay, so that is out of the way, right?
So, what triggered me about this post of course was someone wanting to die.
I know with NOT just a head knowledge but heart knowledge too that God loves this person.
So, I’m sitting there staring at this post and God says to me (yes, God talks to me) “tell this person I love them!”
Mind you, I’m shy and in a group full of people…
So, I wrote it.
I wrote “God loves you. You have purpose.”
I spoke a few more words in love to this person after seeing their profile picture and then friend-ed them on Facebook.
I know that people don’t want to die.
They just don’t know of any other escape!
That hurts me because I know without a doubt that God loves them and that Jesus died for them to be whole.
They just don’t know WHOSE they are yet. Gal 3:26
They don’t realize the love that God has for them. Rom 8:38-39
So, maybe that’s why I got bible college? I don’t know.
I may have Trichotillomania, but its only because there is some subconscious truth I’m not believing God about and I do plan to explore this more with this blog as I talk through my thoughts… like this one.
I can’t imagine how many others with this hair pulling disorder want to die?
Anxiety is a bitch.
But it’s an enemy that’s defeated. Eph 1:21
But without the knowledge of this, I guess it’s hard to take authority on it!
So maybe that’s my purpose in this?
Maybe through revealing truths to people about who they really are in Christ, I’ll finally be delivered from this too?
God has already made provision for all the healing we’ll ever need. 1 Pet 2:24
Stay tuned if you can stand me still… 😉
Leave a comment.
I can take it.
