I havent believed the truth about myself I haven’t believed I am loved I haven’t believed I am forgiven it’s a hard thing for me to wrap my head around. I hang my head in shame and I wallow in sadnes about the the people who have betrayed me. Jesus has given me freedom and the persuit of getting to know his character is never ending. Gods character never changes he is the same yesterday now and forever. He is always good!. I won’t be afraid to be vulnerable before him.. his power is made strong in our weakness.

In one of his Instagram Stories, Bieber wrote, “I’m getting there one day at a time. If you’re going through it, don’t give up.”
The Canadian-born musician, who is a devout Christian, also spoke of how his love for God has helped him through tough times. “God’s character never changes, he is the same yesterday now and forever. He is always good!. I won’t be afraid to be vulnerable before him… his power is made strong in our weakness.”
The 25-year-old pop star has been open about his mental health struggles in the past, revealing back in March that he took a break from music to focus on himself and his marriage to Hailey Baldwin.
“I realized, and as you guys probably saw, I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that,” he wrote on IG. “You pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour.”
