It creeps in slowly and little by little drowns out life. Depression is a slow and silent killer. It attacks when you least expect it.

Several weeks ago I was given the privilege and the honor of speaking to a group of women about the hope that awaits them on their journey of  recovery from sexual abuse. My story being used for His glory. Beauty for ashes. Victory was won that day.

The following weeks have been wrought with illness and the silent killer. It crept in slowly. Disconnect. Sleeplessness. Shame. Guilt and despair. The cloud has been thick choking out the joy of a life spent with the many blessings of Christ.

Today I fight back. I choose to give thanks despite a disconnected heart. Thank you God for the many blessings you have bestowed upon me!!
