Powerful words from the singer
Selena Gomez has always been open about her ups and downs in the public eye and now she’s turned to a religious leader for support.
The singer revealed to her Instagram followers on Monday that she’d been enjoying the work of Judah Smith, lead pastor at The City Church in Seattle, and shared some powerful words that suggested she might be feeling a little lost.
‘Today I watched a sermon from one of my favorites. @judahsmith,’ Selena, 24, captioned a photo of Judah.
‘“I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.” Romans 7:15’
The reflective message sparked concern amongst many of Selena’s followers, with one asking her: ‘are you ok? in your story you looked a little sad love’
‘are you okay ?!’ another commented, whilst another advised her: ‘You can’t let other people tell you who you are. You have to decide that for yourself’
Others wondered what might have prompted Selena to share the very intimate words.
‘Just curious what made you post something like this 😒 @selenagomez,’ one fan enquired.
Selena hasn’t given anything away about what might be on her mind but we hope all is okay.
Things have certainly seemed fine and dandy in her love life recently given that the star has been dating The Weeknd for several weeks now.
Earlier this week the pair were spotted out in Paris together ahead of Paris Fashion Week – and thankfully avoided running into The Weeknd’s model ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid.
The new romance comes just months after Selena was forced to call off her Revival world tour due to experiencing anxiety, depression and panic attacks caused by the autoimmune disease lupus.
‘I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off,’ she explained at the time.
‘Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best.’
It was then reported that Selena had checked herself into rehab to deal with the issues.
We hope the singer’s latest Instagram post isn’t a sign that she’s struggling again.
