"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

Comforting promise when I read these words that God will always be with me despite the barriers I may put up.

Also, on this wonderful day as America celebrates her birthday and we remember all who fought and died for her freedom, that I also claim this to be “My Independence Day.”

My independence to be my very own self which God intended to me to be in the first place!

    Have a wonderful 4th. We all have so much to be grateful for starting with our freedom of the bondage of alcohol and then freedom from bondage of self.


  17. Thank you for a beautiful post! We should all trust God to complete the work He started us, so that we can become who He created us to be. Have a blessed Sunday!
