Demi Lovato Shares Powerful Photos From Her Trip To Israel Where She 'Had A Connection To God'
To stay sober, be healthy and maintain good mental health, Demi Lovato recently revealed that she took a trip to Israel that also served “to help ‘find’ herself again.”
She posted a few pictures where she is being baptized in the Jordan river and explained: "I am an American singer. I was raised Christian and have Jewish ancestors. When I was offered an amazing opportunity to visit the places I’d read about in the Bible growing up, I said yes.
There is something absolutely magical about Israel. I’ve never felt such a sense of spirituality or connection to God…something I’ve been missing for a few years now. Spirituality is so important to me…to be baptized in the Jordan river – the same place Jesus was baptized – I’ve never felt more renewed in my life.
This trip has been so crucial for my well-being, my heart, and my soul. I’m grateful for the memories made and the opportunity to be able to fill the God-sized hole in my heart. Thank you for having me, Israel. 💗"
While most celebrities go to great lengths to hide her imperfections, it has been known for a while now that Lovato is not one of those, and she is always quite determined to show off her body in its full, true light -- even if that means dealing with some of her imperfections.
In a recent post, Lovato showed off her body in a bikini, making no attempts to edit the picture in any way. In fact, it was completely raw, according to the description -- and did not hide her cellulite at all.
However, it does not look like the singer and actress was worried about any negative comments regarding her looks, but was rather eagerly anticipating them.
Lovato has made it clear in the past that she will not tolerate any kind of attitude from people commenting on her posts, and she has continued to live by that rule ever since.
Surprisingly, most of the comments were not actually negative.
Many people praised Lovato for her looks and her brave attitude, pointing out that she was quite different from most other celebrities of her rank, and that she had a lot to show to the world.
Moreover, Lovato's body looks great. While the small imperfections are certainly there, they are nothing more than what the average person has to deal with, and it is good to see that at least some celebrities have a more realistic perspective of their bodies and personalities.
Some have pointed out that this is also important for the more impressionable younger fans who might be watching.
It was a nice teachable moment just like the Israel trip.
