It’s Okay to Have Jesus and a Therapist Too

Today, I had a therapy appointment. I’m so glad I did. After yesterday, I felt so lost and confused. I was trying to be still and listen, but I just felt defeated. I was ready to just give up and stay put – but I can’t get so used to pain that I forget happiness is an option.

My therapist urged me to continue pursuing my passions – writing, blogging, working with social media, and creating digital content. I’ve since applied for a couple of part-time freelance writing opportunities to do for fun and build my resume.

One thing I’m thankful for is my therapist urging me not to give up on my passions. God created these passions in me for a reason. I just know it. 

Jeremiah 29:11 reads, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord. ‘plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”

Proverbs 31:25 reads, “She is clothed in strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future.”

Thank you to both Jesus and my therapist for reminding me that I should not fear the future because He has a plan for me. Thank you to both Jesus and my therapist for giving me a sense of calm in the chaos.
