I was at the lowest point of my life when God came into my life. Panic attacks, depression and eating disorders were my everyday life. My body was so emaciated that I fainted again and again. I didn't see much point in continuing to live, and just kept trying to function because of my children. God came into my life and turned depression into joy, fear into courage and confidence, hatred of my body into love of life. When he led me to paint this picture, I initially knew only the title: "Fear not", and I had the impression of painting an angel. I listened as so often Hal Leath worship music , and suddenly realized that I was not painting an angel, but myself at a young age. All the fear, the depression, the desire to die. Tears of joy ran down my face. Because God said, I was with you from the beginning, didn't miss you for a minute, cried with you every tear.... You came to me, I healed you, washed you clean with the blood of my Son, plucked you out of the valley of death!
I know that this image is for many people who suffer from panic attacks and depression.... I want to give you a lot of courage, his promises are not hope, his promises are the truth.
Over and over again, fear tried to catch up with me. But I put on the armor of God daily and repel Satan's insidious attacks. It was often not easy, but I defended myself with the shield of faith, against which the incendiary arrows of the devil bounced ineffectively. God's Word was finally victorious, and God completely freed me from anxiety and depression.
