During one season of life, I was so emotionally chaotic that almost every decision was fueled by a reaction to what I was feeling. Combined with constant approval seeking , I felt hopeless, powerless— and distant from God.
After reaching my spiritual (and emotional rock bottom), I knew that I could not go on just existing. My unpredictable (and unstable) moods were starting to tear down the life that I was trying so desperately to build and maintain.
Developing a closer relationship with Jesus helped me to realize that I didn’t have to keep struggling just to keep my head above water. Neither do you.
