Sitting outside absorbing the luscious flora and fauna—sun shining, birds singing, flowers blooming—I thought, “What a beautiful day You have given me God. I am so blessed by You. Life is beautiful. Beauty-full. Full of Your beauty.”

I then remembered a time when my life was not beauty-full. A time when it was full of destruction, chaos, pain, addiction, isolation. When Depression and Fear were my constant companions. But that was me no more. It was on that sunshiny day that God birthed this blog in my heart. Lifeisbeauty-full.com.

If you are full of depression and despair. Hopeless and alone. A prisoner in your own life and you think there is no way out. I want to say, “Me too.” I was there. Addiction, depression, sexual trauma, isolation, unsafe eating habits, product of divorce, severe emotional suppression and wounding; me too. I’ve been there. I was living in the chaos and destruction I created for myself from one drink to the next.  But I also need to tell you The Truth. There is hope, peace, freedom, and true joy. There is a way out. The way out is up. His name is Jesus Christ.

He died on a cross for your sin. He paid the price because He loves you. “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9.

You can have a beauty-full life too. You can experience true peace, joy, and freedom. Let Jesus be Lord of your life today.
