  1. I feel very badly for Fantasia and can completely empathize with her situation. Unfortunately, I have been where she is and know it is a very dark and scary place. I had a suicide attempt several years ago, and I also (stupidly) had an affair with a married man years ago and the man’s wife came after me too. I am very ashamed of my actions So, I have been exacly.

    But, out of that experiance, I found God. Sometimes it takes hitting the very bottom for some people like me to finally turn it all over to God. “Friends” and family may leave you or turn on you, but God will never forsake you. He also promises us that “All things work together for those who love the Lord.” That means he can take ANY situation and turn it around to make good come from it, even the situation where Fantasia finds herself in right now. I pray that she will turn it all over to Him and let him work his miracle in her life.
