A young woman, depressed and suicidal, finds hope after meeting a Christian in a mental institution she was admitted to whom God sent to speak to her.
Depressed And Suicidal Teenager
Growing up, Arynn had an arbitrary view of God. For that reason, she saw Christians as emphatic people who want to turn her away from anything fun. Although she went to a Christian college, the teen lived a double life. Hence, she decided to believe God just in her mind and at the same time just do her own thing.
At 18-years-old, Arynn learned to drink and party. The teenager felt edgy since she was breaking the rules and did things for the first time. She had fun until all her actions caught up to her. Arynn didn’t realize the destruction it brought in her life until it led her to depression and even cutting herself. Self-harming became her reward to herself.
One night, Arynn tried to end her life with a razor and slit her wrists. And for the first time in a long time, she cried. A friend took her to a mental institution a week after. That’s when she hit the lowest of lows in her life.
One day, as Arynn went into a room where all patients were hanging out, a Christian guy came up to her. He told her that God wants to speak to her.
“He said, ‘I can feel your pain. I can feel what’s coming off of you and I want you to know God loves you. And He hasn’t left you,” he told Arynn. The guy also urged her to read the Bible every day, starting through Psalms and the Gospel books.
And that word the young man released to Arynn stirred hope inside of her. Suddenly, she saw a vision of herself getting out of the mental institution and doing something good with her life. But indeed, that’s what God amazingly did.
“The only thing that can really fix your brokenness is Jesus,” she remarked.
