Tanya Chand, the operations director of Walk Like Jesus, shares to us how she overcame the mountain of depression and anxiety.
Before knowing Jesus Christ, Tanya experienced emotional abuse and trauma caused by her biological parents. Her past then led her to suffer from depression and anxiety and it even placed her life in danger.
“I faced a mountain in my life where I didn’t know my own worth and I didn’t feel like I was loved to the point where I was actually suicidal. I attempted to commit suicide and that left me on a life support machine for three days,” Tanya recalled.
Depression & Anxiety
Shortly after that, she found Jesus Christ and she gave her life to Him. But despite having a relationship with the one who set her free, she still struggled to overcome her feeling of rejection. It was a huge mountain in her life that is hindering her to move towards her destiny.
“It’s that type of mountain that sometimes can restrict a person. It’s that type of thing that can hold us back from fulfilling our destiny.”
God as a Father
That was when she decided to go on a journey of understanding God as a Father. Today, she is now free from depression and anxiety. Tanya is also using her testimony to help others who also have the same struggle.
No matter how deep your trauma is, God can turn your situation around because He is your good Father.
“God can turn those things around and use them for His glory. He says that God is a Father to the fatherless and He says that He will adopt us and take us in as His very own child.”
