Broken- God put me back together...

by Yasmin
(La puente, California )

I was 11 when I started cutting and now I am 13..... It all started when my only sister ran away from home.. My brother went to jail.. I lost 3 family members (2 with drinking problems and one with old age)... My grandma got sick with cancer....... I had no hope... I've tried drugs and acohol.... I found no love in any of these so I just desided to cut myself..... After a while I started getting involed with church and joined a youth group... In the summer of 09' I found out that the youth had a camp so I decided to go... I stared talking to one of my youth leaders that I've known almost my whole life but never really talked to her... So that whole week of the summer camp we sat down and talked and she started telling me she has battled through the same things... It made me feel good that I was not the only one... She told me that I was not alone.. And tht God was there the whole time. When tht summer ended and school started.. I started going back to the same road... My friends started hating me.. I was in and out of relationships... I didn't feel loved anymore besides the love of my blade tht went through my wrist for about 3 years.... But still today I am much better nd still struggling a little but still have hope....

For those of you that cut.. Just know.. Ur not alone there are people who love you... If u think people left u well your wrong.. God hasn't..... If u want to accept Christ into ur life and ask him to come back and forgive, well u know he never left he was there the hole time waiting for u to notice him... Accept Christ into ur life right now.. He can change u just like he did to me...

God bless and know ur loved :)

This was such an inspirational post Yasmin, thanks so much for sharing your story and please stay on your quest to know the love of God more and more.

You're so right, God really makes life worth living.

Be ever blessed Yasmin is my sincere prayer. May you live fully and boldly out of a true sense that you are beautiful; that you are an exquisite masterpiece by the hands of God!
