Come and drink living water, and never thirst again!
I was freed from a life of misery some 6 years ago when the truth was manifested to me, and as the saying goes "the truth shall set you free"!
About 13 years ago I was 80 pounds heavier, working a dead end job for $8 an hour, living in fear, on antidepressants that masked the sadness but didn't fix it. A chaotic and unfulfilling marriage where infidelity, verbal, and emotional abuse was the norm. Sadly in the middle of the chaos there were innocent children one suffering from autism, one crippled with anxiety, and my youngest just a toddler at the time struggled with separation anxiety because I just couldn't bring myself to breastfeed her anymore. I was emotionally drained. She got 2 good years and all the plumpness my bosom possessed. I had nothing left to give, until the gospel of Jesus Christ saved me. He is very real and active today.
Where I am today: Work IN Progress!
I am healthy emotionally, and physically. When challenges arise, I don't fall apart, on the contrary I have peace in the middle of storm, no more crippling anxiety. I do my best and leave the rest to the great I AM. Work from home I have been given the ability to earn $50+ p/h. The success or failure of my marriage does not define who I am, His word does and He says I am more than a overcomer. My children are thriving and well and my heavenly Father says this is only the beginning of good things to come. Most importantly my hope lies in someone and something that cannot be taken from me.
How I arrived without smelling like the smoke of the fire I had been through
The problem was MY stinkin thinking:
"I believed if my circumstances were different I would be too"
That if I lived in a different neighborhood, if I wasn't neglected and sexually abused as a child, if my husband would get his act together, if mom had left my dad for his infidelity maybe I would have the courage to leave... If my dad hadn't left me at his girlfriend’s house to play "house" with her daughter, just maybe I wouldn't have been exposed to things little girls shouldn't know at 7.
That maybe if my dad loved me I wouldn't have worshiped a man that beat me then left me to die. But the truth was I was afraid to face the truth...
My life was the result of my own bad decisions; yes my childhood had a role in molding me but who's to blame now as an adult? Faced with these tragedies it wasn't long before the thought of death was comforting, and so I tried..... with no success there either.
What He said to me:
"The scars on your wrists prove that wounds do heal, don't hide them, use your pain"
Apparently there was a specific purpose for my life and the pain I endured, I did not have permission to end it. I truly believed that I was defined by everything that happened to me, in addition to being a government benefit recipient at the time I was considered worthless by the world’s standards. I'm only here today by grace to tell this story so that it may help others like me.
Now I choose to believe what God says and not what the world has to say; because it set me up to fail but, didn't have the authority to do so. Accepting Christ not only assured me of a better life here and now, but also in eternity. This is not home. We are truly saved from hell on earth as well as once we move on from this temporary dwelling known as our body, make no mistake Yeshua aka Jesus Christ is the only bridge and ladder to the Father the Creator of all .
