Prayer To Keep Going….

Dear holy Father,

When the pressure mounts and the troubles of this world begin to close in, give me the grace to return to you. I don’t want to be a hero. I don’t want the easy way out.

All I want, all I need, is your loving mercy. Never leave me Lord. Keep me under your wing. Even if I don’t feel you there, at least let me understand that you are there.

Give me the strength to take up my cross and fight the good fight. Let your grace allow me to believe in the only one that gives me truth and clarity despite the pain and struggle.

And if it be your will, fill my heart and soul with the overwhelming joy that only your Spirit gives. For in the Messiah, I find my resurrection. In Christ almighty, all things are made new again.

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Happy Friday…..

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future. Look forward to having you read my blog, 𝓞𝓵𝓲𝓿𝓲𝓪 𝓑. 𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓹𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓭 💋
