I started cutting when I was thirteen. Yikes. I didn’t stop until the summer of my sophomore year. The reason I cut myself is because I was dealing with pain and didn’t know how else to make myself feel better. Cutting in my mind made things better, but really it made things worse. My family had to watch me destroy myself, I lost friends, no guy would come within a three foot radius of me. It was bad. But I stopped and I found something truly worth living for: Jesus. Now before you stop reading because you think I have become one of those psycho Christians (even though I have) just listen to what I’ve got to say because I know what I have is the very thing you need to get out of the situation you are in. My dad started going to church and forced my sisters and I to attend a service three times a week. I hated it, but it was the best thing he ever did for me. We started going in July and it only took a month for me to realise that the life I had been living was meaningless and with all the lies I had been fed I needed Truth. The only Truth there is is in Jesus Christ. Jesus died so that I could be set free from all my bondage. I prayed for the first time on the first Sunday in August in 2003 and I felt true joy. Since then God has done so many amazing things with my life. Now get this, Jesus wasn’t just my answer He’s everyone’s answer if you want to be set free from anything. He did it for me, He can do it for you. Just try it. What have you got to lose? I’ll tell you what you’ve got to lose: all the hurt and pain inside of you and He’ll take it. Let Him deal with it, you weren’t meant to. So pray.
