A Glimpse into Leila’s Story
“He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.” —Psalm 40:2
Having gone through some major life struggles with anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, and low self-esteem, I can empathize with those dealing with emotional or physical pain, living unaware of God’s love. Pain broke me, but God’s love remade me, lifted me out of the pit of despair, and gave me a newfound purpose for living— to uplift others with the comfort he shared with me! I take 2 Corinthians 1:4 very seriously—”He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.”
I’d love to say that I no longer have struggles, but as you know, life can be tough, and the enemy of our soul is relentless. Thankfully, God has taught me how to turn my trials into triumphs through the power of praise and worship!
“To know God’s redeeming love is to be forever changed. No longer do we live for ourselves, but for the One who set us free!” ~ Leila Grandemange
