The voices of the past, fear and defeat are always hounding us, but if you could come to a place where those voices are silenced, would you? If you knew that every step you took could bring you closer to experiencing peace, would you do what it takes to get there? If you answer yes, then this devotional is for you.
I lived decades of my life in the burden of my past and the destruction that came with it. Relational abuse and trauma kept me trapped in shame and self-loathing. But when I cried out to God and said, “I want freedom and I don’t care what it costs me”, things began to change. I mean, really change.
My life and past have been transformed by the love of God! That is the central theme you’ll find on my website, blog, social media, and any place you find me declaring God’s love. It is the ONLY power that truly transforms and heals.
Just look at the woman at the well in John 4 or the adulterous woman in John 8 or the woman with the issue of blood in Matthew 9. The blind, lame, possessed, and tormented. Every person touched by the love of God through Jesus Christ, walked away healed and changed forever. Even those who witnessed these miracles were never the same.
God has taught me to honor my life by honoring myself and where I’ve been. The wounds of the soul are sacred and must be honored before the celebration of our lives can begin. For so long we loathe who we were when we were injured and blame ourselves and the outcome is self-hatred and dishonor. When we begin to allow God to touch those wounds, we are transformed and begin to live a life that honors and celebrates the lives God has blessed us with, no matter how broken we have been.
God walked me through a very intense healing journey and in the process, I journaled A LOT! Little did I know that God would turn that journey and those journal entries into a devotional that you can now have access to. There is no charge, as He has freely given healing to me, I pass it on to you.
My prayer is that God would use it to bring healing to your life along with all the other resources you can find here at the website. I encourage you to access my POEMS as many of those were written out of my healing process that is ongoing.
