Can you remember a moment in your life when you felt unseen? Meet my new friend Louise Goodwin who is the NoVA First Impressions Director and Sozo Inner-Healing Prayer Ministry Lead at National Community Church in northern Virginia. Who at a young age God shared with her that her life is worth living even when she felt unimportant and misunderstood. Louise talks briefly of her suicide attempt at 15 years old if that subject is triggering for you (8:15 - 10:21). However Jesus interceded in a miraculous way and because of that Louise decided to stick around to see why.
"Our fight is not against flesh and blood. There is a spirit realm and we are partnering with God to bring the Kingdom of God into earth. But,we will face troubles and trials in this world and so it is going to require that we ask for help." - Louise Goodwin
Our Conversation Points:
Grateful for Louise's parable story and her willingness to dig through her past so she could stick around and live in the truth. If you are contemplating suicide, please don't do it and keep fighting for the long game, it is worth it. Your life matters. Know you are loved and please talk to a safe friend, family member, or call or text the National Suicide Hotline 988.
