“I deserve it…”
“I have to hurt myself to feel…”
“It’s the only way I can get through today…”
Have you ever heard someone say these things? Is your child, grandchild, or friend struggling with self-harm? Are you stuck in a place of hurting yourself because you think you have no other option?
For 8 years, I struggled with self-harm, living daily in darkness. I was hopeless and could not bear the day without hurting myself. I felt lost, alone and beyond help; looking back now I would say I was addicted to the pain. As I traveled further through life with a blade as my companion, the darkness overtook me. Nothing in my life was greater than my desire to hurt myself.
But God is greater. God rescued me from the despair. Through the truths I found in the Bible, I found hope that life could be different. I found help that gave me freedom from the chains of self-harm. I was given tools to live through each day without destroying myself.
Come join me in this workshop as we look at the battle of self-harm. Find help, encouragement, tools and hope. Our struggles are strong, BUT GOD IS GREATER!
