Let me start by saying my LS is one of the beastingest people I know! Fortunately, I can personally point out characteristics that make many of my LS’s quite THE BEAST. But this one in particular was my first president in an organization that promotes sisterhood and service and was rebuilding a chapter from the BOTTOM! She led us all through a time when many of us didn’t even know how to make it successful. She is an alumna of University of Michigan and THE Georgetown Law and has passed the BAR exam!! Other than that, she’s caring, hilarious, gorgeous, and pretty fly!
After I read her latest blog post, at first I was hurt that she is all depressed. Then, I was really excited that I have the opportunity to witness and share my testimony with her. I was just going to comment back on her facebook wall, but thought it was getting a bit lengthy, so below is my
hip and shorthanded candid response:
Girl, this chapter is the realest talk ever!! My first super testimony was my own experience struggling for a job. I prayed that His will be done! Similar to you, I had my own “revelation” moment. After months, I finally just got content that I was staying at home for a while, and even asked my parents (first time for everything) to get me these dream boots for Christmas! I used this time as an opportunity for me to get closer to my parents and closer to God. I had to find out what He wanted me to learn. Now, 2 years later, I realize that I wouldn’t have the close relationship with my parents that I have now had I not been home for those months. It finally got to a point where I stopped stressing. Soon after, I bought a flight that I couldn’t afford, and decided “I’d work it out”. But, Money got REAL funny. I thank God that a couple days before the credit card bill was due, I got my job, and they direct deposited my moving stipend in my account!
All of Matthew 6 is on point! Give to the Needy, Pray the right way and understand The Lord’s Prayer, study up on FASTING, Serve God not money, Don’t worry about tomorrow. Then, and only then can your testimony be greater than this “revelation” of depression. God Bless you LS, I’ve already sent a prayer up for ya!
