Disney singer Demi Lovato shared about her new found relationship with God after she nearly died from a drug overdose.
On July 24, 2018, the pop star almost lost her life because of a drug overdose. She was found unconscious in her Los Angeles apartment. Since, Demi has revealed that she has been desperately searching for God.
“I was not really a big church person, like even a month ago,” Demi said in an interview. “I tried to seek God through other experiences, whether that’s through other relationships or substances. And it’s just like, I had to realize that the God that I’m seeking, the God that I love and the God that I want to be my God is available 24/7, always at an arm’s length and constantly with me. I need to focus on myself and my relationship with myself and my relationship with God.”
She also admitted that she turned away from Church because she felt rejected.
“I shied away from church for many years, I didn’t feel welcome. I was also questioning my sexuality,” she said.
The 27-year-old artist’s turning point was when her manager Scooter Braun invited her to a Bible study. He also helped her look for a church.
“He was like, ‘Hey, do you wanna go to Bible study?’ And I was like, ‘Wait, aren’t you Jewish,’” she jokingly shared. “So he took me there and I just heard God clearer than I had heard Him in a long time.”
At the Grammy Awards, Demi performed the song “Anyone” where she shared how broken and alone she felt before her hospitalization. Now, the pop star says she feels safer and renewed after strengthening her relationship with the Lord.
