I found this picture last week and realized that the date it was taken on was August 24, 2013. This day three years ago. I was shocked and saddened that my eating disorder had led me to a place of such despair and ruin BUT I was mostly encouraged when seeing this picture. (this would be the interactive part where you would say) "Why Gabby???" And to you I would say this. I'm able to look at this picture and solely focus on the fact that Jesus RESCUED me. Jesus brought me through a time where I thought there was no answer. When I couldn't walk it alone, He carried me through. I recently found Isaiah 52:1-2 and it really resonated with me. It says, "Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your garments of splendor" and later says, "Shake off your dust; RISE UP, sit ENTHRONED" and finishes by saying "Free yourself from the chains on your neck O captive Daughter of Zion." When I read this, I thought out loud and said, "That. WAS. Me." I was that captive daughter of Zion God was so desperately encouraging to break free. The Ultimate Healer called me to shake off my dust and to RISE UP (*starts singing RISE UP from Hamilton*) (whoops sorry) and to live the life He was calling me to. He calls all of His children to a life that is FREE. A life of SPLENDOR. He calls for us to "sit enthroned" and to "shake off our dust". Our Jesus is a lover. Holy Spirit is power and our God is a healer. I am continually learning just how AMAZING Holy Spirit is and how powerfully God speaks. But, I do know without a shadow of a doubt that I am here and healed only because of the ALMIGHTY power of Holy Spirit and the MIGHTY name of Jesus. So this picture on the right shows me today!! 3 years later and healed!!! PRAISING GOD AND HAPPY DANCING ALL DAY WAHOO.
