And so it is with life.
Although all of these amazing people in my life only wanted to help and only wanted the best for me, none of them had the capability to make it better. Jesus was the only one who could bring me to the other side of this terrible darkness. Having a strong foundation in Jesus and turning to Him in my time of trouble was (and still is) the only possibility for weathering this terrible storm.
I still have dark moments of sadness, and I imagine that I will for some time. I am thankful that I can depend on Christ to get me through. I am also thankful for family and friends who will be there when I need them.
