A small snapshot of my journey intending to bless you.
I was withdrawn, unsure, and never felt loved. No one knew how I felt. I was a sensitive, passionate, creative person who always felt alone. My teenage years were much like the norm of my era, except I was too afraid to venture far. I did not have a sense of self or identity; I stupidly tried to find it in everyone and everything else, which led me to being used and abused. For 30 years, I was in a mentally abusive marriage.
But God –
He rescued me so deeply and profoundly. I was at the bottom of my pit! But because of His great love. Because I cried out with everything in me. Because I had praying friends. Because of His great grace and mercy….
FREEDOM came to me on every level and in such powerful, tangible ways!! My whole countenance changed before my very eyes. My family and friends saw it. I looked and felt younger! Deep joy bubbled up in me and happiness soared to new heights! Before I had confusion but now, I wore a perpetual smile!
You can have this same freedom experience, too. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work with in us, Ephesians 3:20 God’s WORD Translation
We all have our own unique life stories; usually filled with holes, wounds, and disappointments, which directly causes us to live our lives broken and beaten down.
You read this little blog about me, but my heart is for YOU! Jesus gave me the most spectacular joy-filled happy life. I want this for you, too! We find true freedom nowhere else but in Him. Seek Him.
