Before I had this beautiful relationship, I was sad. Everyday I would wake up feeling disgusted with what I thought I was. Not pretty enough, not “cool” enough, just not good enough for anyone. I encountered a reoccurring thought, “It wouldn’t matter if I was gone, would it?” Ending my life became an option, but I never took it. Pastor Nick prayed for me, and I began to see my worth. I was shown the never-ending love of God, and I realized I had a purpose. I am an instrument of the Lord.
