I seriously need prayer right now.6 months ago, I woke up in a hospital and I thought I was dreaming or in hell. As I slowly realized it was only a traumatic brain injury that had taken my memory, my processing speed, and my ability to speak clearly, I started to pray again, because who prays in dreams? Not I. Who realized that she wasn't dreaming? I did. I was scared and I prayed because I couldn't do much else. Now? I almost have my memory back, I can speak, and my processing speed is half of what it was. And I still pray. Desperately. Because I'm 16 and scared of dying or of losing everything and forgetting about God. I'm scared of getting depressed again, of relapsing into my eating disorder and my self-harm addiction. I'm scared of losing everything. So yeah. Prayers much appreciated.

    Dear Girl,
    You are loved. You are priceless.
    It's great that you're praying--NEVER stop! God will see you through! Cling to Him! Take your fears to him. He wants you to cry out to Him! He wants to hold you and comfort you! ("How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings") 1 Peter 5:7 says, Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
    He cares for you! The God of the universe cares for you! He loves you with a crazy love! He loves you so much that He was mocked for you, beaten for you; He sweated drops of blood for you, He hung on a cross for hours for you, He rose again and is interceding to the Father on YOUR behalf!
    So no matter WHAT happens, He will love you. Nothing can separate you from His love.
    Hold On Pain Ends= HOPE
    <3 Love ya, girl!

    Sweet girl, before you were born, God knew you. He formed you in your mother's womb, and you are here. You are beautifully here. Your story doesn't end here. This is a pause. This is a stop, but it's just that. It's not forever. I too have struggled with eating disorders and depression. It's awful. It'll tear you apart. Something that helps me is to intentionally say three nice things about myself everyday.

    1. I am fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God. The very image of God. I am beautiful and loved.

    2. I am important. I've been placed on this Earth for a reason. God has a purpose for me. I may not always understand His will, but His will is the best thing for me.

    3. I am worthy of love because I am a person and God loves me. "Love your neighbor as yourself" as translates to "Love yourself as your neighbor". Take care of yourself. Love on yourself. Give yourself hugs, time, space, love, and things that make you happy.

    You are loved. <3
