“One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.”John 13:23
During my last night in Laramie, I prayed my last request to God that would finally set me free from my burden I’ve been carrying for so long. It was one of the reasons I’ve lost so much confidence in myself even when I’ve asked God to forgive me. I just couldn’t forgive myself.
I understand that Jesus dying on the cross would and should be enough to convince me that I will be okay even though I wasn’t. There was no effort on my part. I was caging histories that made me feel ugly inside. When I decided to move to the Grand Tetons National Park, I knew I needed to be free from my chains to live to the fullest. It is where I want to find peace and healing.
God exactly did just that. My prayer was answered.
Ever since I arrived at Jackson Lake Lodge, I knew it will be an experience of a lifetime. I have met people who have given me so much more confidence than I have ever given myself. Being in the forest and going on adventures have given me more confidence in who I am in God. Being here is a constant reminder of the promise He has given.
