Two weeks ago we gave students the opportunity to anonymously share things about themselves no one knew. We passed out note cards and played music while students poured out the depths of their souls.
“Sometimes I wish I could fall asleep and never wake up”
“I sit in front of the mirror almost everyday and tell myself all the reasons I hate myself…”
“I am anorexic. It hasn’t helped, but now I don’t know how to stop.”
“I grew up thinking that abuse was normal punishment for kids.”
“At times I think God wasted a life on me.”
“Everything I do is based on what others will think of me.”
“Suicide seems easier than this life.”
You just read 7 of the 70 notecards that were turned in. Some of the secrets had names on them so we can now walk this journey with them. Unfortunately the majority were anonymous. Pray for us as we bring light into the darkness. Pray for these teens to meet Jesus. Pray they will ask for help and trust our leaders with their burdens. Darkness cannot extinguish light, the darker it gets, the brighter the light appears. Oh, what a light Jesus is!
