Have you ever felt wounded, like your heart was shattered into a thousand pieces? Have you felt like your spirit was broken? Or maybe you have felt worthless, or unloved, in such deep pain that you believed no one could understand….maybe you are living a life filled with shame and guilt….I know what all of the above feels like, I’ve been there.
This blog is my journey out of the dark and tangled confusion of abuse. It is God’s story of His healing in my life.
Our stories are food for friends to feast on together. God invites us to write and then rewrite our stories. We all need each other, to ponder our stories together, to help us write with more integrity and depth….we all need friends to laugh with and to weep with us…. we are called to tell our stories.
This blog is where I first began putting my story into the written word and it took a lot of courage…because of you, those who also know the pain of abuse and wounding, you are the ones who have feasted with me, and now my story is no longer one that I wish to deny….through this venue, my Abba Father has brought healing to me… words that felt lost to me, and a voice that was muted by shame, was awakened.
I had no idea when I first came here and began sharing my journey where it would take me, and with whom I would cross paths…but I had such a deep sense of hope…..I am honored to walk alongside many men and women of great courage, men and women who carry deep wounds yet are willing to let our Abba Father begin to heal those wounds….
We, as God’s children, are meant to be celebrated and honored…together we share our tears, our struggles, our laughter, and our miracles and joy….we are meant to be birthed in the care of others who know and love our story.
Through my own journey of woundedness and brokenness I pray that you will come to know that healing is possible. Do I still stumble, yes! Are there times when triggers cause me to lose my footing, yes….but, I have come to know that the love and grace of Jesus Christ is bigger than anything that has been thrown at us in this life.
Maybe like me, you’ve searched for love in all the wrong places. I eventually discovered I was searching for the wrong kind of love altogether. It was only when I came to know Jesus, the Way, The Truth and the Life that I found what true love really is.
God has taken me down a miraculous journey of healing and my desire is to journey alongside of women and men and help them to find in Jesus, the true love, acceptance, healing and freedom they are seeking.
And so it is my deepest prayer that through this blog you will see Jesus more than my own story of abuse….I pray that you will come to know that you are loved and precious to Him.
May you come to understand and know that God is both with you and for you in this journey of healing. God sees, knows, heals, restores, and redeems. May you God’s children, His daughters & sons walk in the freedom that Christ’s blood bought us….it is our birthright!
You can’t get away from a love that will not let you go. (Robert F. Capon)
