Has fear invaded your life? Are you suffocating under the pressure of being known and being enough?
Good News! You Do Not Have to Live Under the Oppression of Fear and Anxiety When It Comes to Living an Authentic Life.
It’s easy to lean on your faith when things are going well, and even when things are just a little tough. But when you’re living with a false identity, the pressure increases, day after day, week after week. Small defeats chip at the false version of you until the weight feels like a mountain pressing down with no relief. In those times, faith feels complicated and is hard to come by.
April Poynter suffered from General Anxiety Disorder for an entire year. The ordeal was so intense that at one point she even contemplated suicide. Yet at the bottom of the pit, and at the end of herself, the Truth of God’s word began to press through her feelings and embedded itself into her heart. Perfect Love was found at the bottom of the bottom.
“I overcame the darkest battle of my life by pressing forward.” April declares. “And so can you!”
I felt as if she had cracked open my heart and mind and was able to put into words what I am feeling.
