"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!

WE ARE NOT ALONE!


Many times through out my day I have to continually remind myself that, “I Am Not Alone.” When the waves of emotional pain roll in, I have to remember there is the Greater One who stands along side of me. Some waves take a little longer to subside than others, but they do recede.

“Loneliness and isolation go along with the guilt and shame we feel about who we are or what we have done. We may feel so cut off from others that we feel lonely even when we are around other people. Guilt, fear of being hurt, and self-hatred can make us unable to believe in the love others have for us. We can feel all alone in the struggle even when there are people beside us who want to help. Being willing to accept their love is part of the preparation for making amends.” (The Life Recovery Bible)

I know the above can be hard for many to accept. Trust is certainly not easy for any of us who have been hurt. But, I can say in my experience since going on my journey to freedom, there are some really caring people out there that only have good intentions for me to become well. I pray this for you!

  9. Trust for me is easy to give but once tested hard to get back. It's not easy to trust so when someone violates that trust, it's not pretty. I recently had a situation that tested my soul. It stung to the degree of how the person handled their end. After giving it serious contemplative thought, I let it go and reminded myself one person's poor taste will not change how I feel about others. And I remind myself of that every day.

  14. We are truly never alone unless we willingly walk away from God's arms. Even then, we simply just need to look back and see that He never leaves, He just waits patiently for us to invite us back in and He'll even meet us there.
