‘My second year of university was very, very hard for me. I wasn’t leaving my house. I was in depression because of the things that were happening. I met this guy who was wrong for me. It started to mess with my education. I wasn’t going to lectures. I was in my bed all the time watching TV and paying £9,000 for it.
‘Then, the verse for the day on the Bible App was Corinthians 12.9, which says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”.
‘I was crying my eyes out. I cried. I went about my day. I cried myself to sleep. Wake up, and repeat. But this verse reminded me that God could do anything, greater than I could imagine.
‘It took me a while to get out of it. I really lost myself. But it’s so crazy what God can do in a space of time if you allow him to. I didn’t think, then, that I would finish university. But now I’m about to start work. At times I feel down and when I’m not coping and thinking I can’t do anything by myself, I am reminded of this verse. Then I don’t worry.’
