  1. I am in awe every single time I See worship in the living and your writing about how God has moved you and been *in* your moments, it is truly worship. So beautiful. So line drawing to Him. That you moved as He moved you. That you served as He led you. It’s your obedience that is such worship.

    Rich blessings, Kaelynn, as He continues to use your every moment–the ugly and the beautiful–to make a magnificent story for Him.

  2. And it is so comforting to know that he cares and loves each one of us. So much so that he will send messages of warning to others who can help and intervene. In this case your aquaintance, fiance and husband. Sounds like he saved you in more than one way. What an amazing story. Thank you for sharing this part of yourself.

    • Lisa,
      You are right. It is so comforting to recognize the incredible love that Christ has for each one of us. He has a wonderful plan for all of his children and He will stop at nothing to make sure that it is accomplished! Thank you for sharing your thoughts! Have a blessed day!

  3. Thank you for sharing something so personal from your life. The enemy meant to silence you from God’s work and calling but God had other plans. What a blessing your struggle has turned out to be… what a powerful testimony for the Glory of our God.

    Keep moving forward with Him as He leads and directs.

    • Gloria,
      The Evil One is so clever isn’t he? He would love nothing more than to ruin God’s plans for His children. It is amazing and humbling to see how God can take all of our flaws and mistakes and turn them into something that can bring Him glory! Thank you for your encouraging words!

  4. Sharing your story, well, that took courage. But it’s such a clear picture of God’s redeeming and perfect love! Praise God He rescued you and lifted you out of the pit!!!!

  5. Thankyou for sharing, that was so inspiring! I am back in my hometown, unemployed, with no idea what the next step is. It’s an encouragement to be reminded that yes, He does have a plan for my life, even if I may not have figured it out yet!

    • I’m sorry that you are going through such a difficult time right now! I hope that everything falls into place for you soon! God Bless!

    • Praying for a job & God’s guidance in your life! May He give you His perfect peace, mercy during this time.

      Remember Jeremiah 29:11–“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you”.

  6. kaelynn,

    Thank you thank you thank you for you openness & honesty! The enemy is alwasy trying squealch us & deceive us into thinking we’re no good. But what he meants for evil–God used for His good–He turned ashes into beauty and gave you a wonderful testimony!

  7. Thank you for sharing this…I’m so glad God intervened in your life at that crucial moment.
    I spent 3 years praying to die…still have days I wish I could just end it all…but no longer every day…it is slow and agonizing…but I keep reading posts like this and finding that God still does reach down to His hurting children.
    I love the way God is using you and your experiences.

    • Hang in there! I can totally relate to your pain. I have spent so many days face down on my bedroom floor literally screaming at God to kill me. Life can just be so painful and lonely sometimes… God cares about you even more than you can possibly imagine though. He has a grand plan for your life that only you can uniquely fulfill. I’m praying for you tonight.

  8. This article was blessing to me. I am in the midst of very trying times now and there are times I used to have those thoughts though I have never tried to carry them out. There are times I just wonder if it is worth going on. I admire your frankness n sharing this and I shouted a big hallelujah at the end of it.To see how God made all things so beautiful at the end just gives me hope that everything will be alright. The devil wanted evil but the Lord brought out something beautiful even in the midst of despair

    • Christina,
      Life can be overwhelming… I think we all wonder if it is worth living at times. I’m sorry to hear that you are in the midst of a difficult situation, but I know that it does not have to be in vain. God has a wonderful plan for your life. He can take all of your pain, mistakes, and victories and turn them into a wonderful tool for your ministry. You are worth so much more than you know. Keep fighting the good fight! Never give up hope. God will make this painful time in your life something beautiful if you let him! God bless!

  9. Only God knows when your work is done. We hang on to our faith even when God said to my 4 month old Granddaughter or my 91 year old mother come unto me in my heavenly home, your work on earth is done. You, my dear, were saved because you have work yet undone! Look at what you wrote to all of us. Your words may be the foundation needed to make that difference someone is searching for in their own turbulant life. God works through us for the glory of his name. You have been chosen to be a messenger.

    • Phyllis,
      I’m sorry to hear about your losses. Life on earth can be so cruel at times. Thank you for the encouragement. I truly hope that God will continue to use my past failures to bring glory to His name. I don’t want any part of my life or my story to be wasted! I want to surrender everything to Him even the bad parts.
