As a Christian who’s struggled through the confusion of “having the power of the Holy Spirit” yet feeling powerless against anxiety and depression, I want to offer you hope and solidarity that you are not alone in the middle of the mess.
We may be holding everything we’ve ever wanted and still feel sad, overwhelmed or anxious. And that can take a toll on our faith and self esteem.
Feelings fluctuate. Faith falters. But Jesus’ love for us in an unstoppable force that remains true no matter what we face or how we feel.
When we realize Jesus already fully loves us, right in the middle of the mess, we can begin to reframe everything through the lens of His love.
