The Story And Testimony Of Cayla Jarrell “My name is Cayla, I am a young woman from Charleston South Carolina, I was diagnosed with autism at two years old and I am also visually impaired. Life wasn’t always easy. Especially, having vision problems and other disabilities and health problems, but God helped me through it as a kid and teenager. When I was a baby the doctors told my mom that I wouldn’t be able to walk, or talk, but years later I proved them wrong. When I got to be a pre teen, I was diagnosed with chronic migraines and I was going back and forth to the hospital a lot. When they found the right medications to get rid of those migraines,that was the time I fell in love with God, and started praying every night before bed, and I felt like God was right there with me. I struggled with anxiety as a teenager. Especially, when I was dealing with some health issues, surgeries, being bullied in high school, but God helped me through it. Back in 2018, I moved to a place called Midland. It’s a small town in North Carolina, where my amazing momma was from. I got to bond with my mom’s side of the family and got really close with them. Things started to change a lot for me after I moved to NC. I had my ups and downs, but God was there to help me through it. I was able to overcome all of my health problems and finally was able to come off of some of my medications back in 2019. Right around New Years I was diagnosed with pneumonia, but it was minor. Although I was so scared, I prayed to God to give me the strength to fight through this and He did. I got over the pneumonia within a week at home, I was so grateful to God that He helped me through it. 2020 has been the worst and best year with my anxiety, but I keep praying to God to help me through it and He did. On August 7th, 2020 I received “the calling” from God. I could hear God speak to me and He was telling me that I should become a youth minister. August 7th was one of the best days of my life, I started getting closer and closer to God. This year has been a wild one for me, but I know that God is always with me and He will make things better. These past few months I learned that some things are temporary, but God is eternal. I am learning how to handle my anxiety better and I have been praying to God to take my anxiety and anger away and He took care of it. I feel like I am getting closer and closer to God each day and I have never once lost my faith in the Lord. God never fails to amaze me. This year I have also learned to be grateful for everyone and everything I have, I am thankful for God, I am thankful for my mom, my two amazing grandmothers, my grandfather, the rest of my family, I am also thankful for my amazing friends that have been with me through the ups and downs, and for putting up with me even when I am at my worst. I am thankful for God’s Grace and love. God has helped me through the ups and downs, the traumatic experiences, the meltdowns, the health problems, the surgeries, the anxiety attacks, and He has help me through everything I have been through in my life. I have always believed in God ever since I was really little, but when I got older I started getting closer and closer to God, and learning about our Savior Jesus Christ, and how He died for our sins. I have started hearing God’s voice when I was a little younger and have had dreams about seeing Jesus Christ. I got the calling from God back in August, I realized that I wanted to become a youth minister and also want to be a photographer as well. I know that God will guide me and He will lead me on the right direction, I know this because I talk to God everyday, and I have faith that He will make me a better person and He will help me get through the trials and tribulations in life. I am excited for what God has planned for me.” Welcome to Living In Faith! I share my stories about me, I talk about my relationship with God as well. I also post my photography pictures on here because I love photography. Most of these picture quotes are made by me. I want to inspire others and make people smile. I hope everyone enjoys my blog!
