Im so very sorry for disappearing. So many changes are happening and i feel like a failure to myself, too vulnerable to continue, and a disgrace left in solitude. Of course, your mind tricks you always when you are close to victory...it utters you to give up; stops fighting back. But here I am now.
I have new courage and it's so unlikely for me to feel how i did. Im going to face my monsters, accept my wrongness and forgive. Because to Love is to forgive. And to Forgive is to be forgiven. Isn't that what Jesus came to the world in the first place?

  3. Hi Ashley!
    I've been reading your blog for some time now, and seeing your faith in Jesus has really encouraged me in my own walk with Him. I'm so inspired by what you write and even as you go through this hard time, remember that:

    "O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and rising up; You understand my thought afar off. Even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me."
    -Psalm 139 : 1, 10

    Just thought I'd share it with you; I'm going through a little rough patch at the moment as well, and have been comforted by that verse. Chin up! (: Eyes on Jesus.
