It's so needed. He's so needed.

It's so needed. He's so needed.

In 2017, I struggled through a season of depression.

If you know me at all... you know how hard it is for me to admit that.

There were days it was hard to get out of bed.

There were days it was hard to pray.

And writing? Most days, I could barely find the words.

I wish I could say I reached out for help.

I wish I could say I opened up about it. 

But I masked it with a smile and humor.

I carried on with a brave face... as I so often do.

As we, as women, so often do.

In this world of perfect IG squares and highlight reels... it can be so terrifying to be vulnerable. To be transparent. To allow the world to see your hurt. 

I want to let you know that it's okay.

Allow yourself to hurt.

Allow yourself to feel.

And then allow yourself to heal.

And let me tell you, I'm so thankful for the healing that Jesus brings.

It's never a pretty process... it's usually raw and real and rough and messy.

But it's so needed.

He's so needed.

His love is wide and deep and I promise it's enough.

I just want to encourage you to burn the highlight reel and to be transparent in your struggles.

I promise you'll never find perfection here.

But I hope you always find honesty and vulnerability from a broken girl who believes in a perfect Savior. 

Thanks for reading. Thanks for supporting.
