  1. I just finished reading this article and I want to thank you for letting the Spirit of God work in you in this way. You have impacted something into my life today. I have been so much touched and humbled by your testimony. One thing I can see here is that coming out and walking in the light may not be easy at first for many of us who have made it a habit to hide in the dark. The light will first blind us, and then expose all our faults. But with the help of God, our sight gets acustomed to the light and the Holy Spirit, who does not love working in the dark, will be able to purify us and rid our hearts of guilt and shame.

  2. I’ve personally dealt with panic anxiety problems my whole life. It started when I was just a teenager and I’ve had to cope with them since then. I’ve finally figured out that has helped me get them done once and for all. I will tell you that it wasn’t quick or easy, but after a while I was able to finally get rid of them. I’m no longer dealing with them and its like I’ve started a new life not dealing with panic attacks. I also saw a Dr. Oz special a few days ago, sometimes it isn’t a panic attack that is the root of the problem, I’d also recommend talking to your doctor. Good luck!
