When I was hit with the death of my Grandmother in 2012 I was absolutely devastated and spiraled down into a depressive state. For a couple of years I let it define me and allowed my sadness and hurt get the better of me. I was angry at God, and I did not want him in my life any more, but he did not leave me.
I started to reject him, and every chance I got I would rebel, just to spite him and my parents. I started going out to parties, drinking, and became extremely immoral.
Last year I came back to God after my teacher told me that she was a christian and I realized that she was the kind of person I wanted to be. I looked back at the last few months and realized that God had been working in small ways to repair my life and put the right people around me.
I still struggle in major ways and I find myself calling out to God at all hours of the night asking desperately for help. But God has made himself close to me, and he has helped me to trust him.
Whenever I am scared, the first thing I do is look to him, ask him for help.
When I mess up, I ask him for forgiveness and guidance to make something good come out of the situation.
I have had to realize that being saved doesn't mean that things are going to be perfect. Sometimes things will get so bad they are unbearable, or I find myself making a mistake that I think I'll never forgive myself for. But I am still saved, and God will offer is undying love and reassurance, he will ease all pain and soothe raw wounds.
The Lord God Jesus Christ, Lord of all, is my saviour and for that I am eternally thankful.
"He lifted me up out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand." - Psalms 40:2

I too went through a similar period because I’ve suffered for so long under the hands of evil unjustly for no obvious faults of mine. I almost wanted to leave my faith and yet God did not abandon me. After this whole ordeal a revelation was given to me and I for the first time truly felt in my heart just how much our Lord Jesus sacrificed and done for us to save us when He suffered at the hands of wicked men. I want nothing now except to be with my God and my Savior forever.

Let us walk with endurance until the very end, because “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.”
