After an overdose that almost ended her life, singer Demi Lovato has decided to seek more to to overcome her addictions.
In her first interview with a media outlet after her recovery, Lovato has expressed that after that experience, she is determined to look more for the God who is for her 24/7 attending church.
“I was not really a big church person, like even a month ago,” the singer shared.
“I tried to seek God through other experiences, whether that’s through other relationships or substances. And it’s just like, I had to realize that the God that I’m seeking, the God that I love and the God that I want to be my God is available 24/7, always at an arm’s length and constantly with me. I need to focus on myself and my relationship with myself and my relationship with God” she added in the interview with Apple’s Zane Lowe.
She found answers in God
Accompanied by Scooter Braun, her manager, and along with Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey, the singer attended church in the middle of a hectic day.
What she saw at the beginning as a kind of joke, since Braun is Jewish, became an experience that renewed the spirit of the singer, where many doubts were cleared, like, for example, her sexuality.
“He was like, ‘Hey, do you wanna go to Bible study?’ And I was like, ‘Wait, aren’t you Jewish?” Lovato jokingly explained. “So he took me there and I just heard God clearer than I had heard Him in a long time.”, she confessed.
“I just feel safer and I feel renewed”, says Lovato after reconnecting with God.
She found her true identity in Christ
Right there, she confessed to Apple, that insecurities regarding her sexuality separated her from the church for a long time, “I left the church for many years. I did not feel welcome. I was also questioning my sexuality,” Lovato revealed about her inclinations towards bisexuality.
After being in the church, Demi was able to find answers to so many doubts and change the perspective about herself and about who God is, outside the current of the world in which she was submerged, to the point of dying due to excesses.
