"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!

33 second video which says it all!


  1. this video is so real JBR! i was so much rejected by the Catholic Church i grew up in. it can be so devastating.

    i applied as a teacher in one of the Catholic schools here about 13 years ago. they could not accept me as i was not married! i had excellent skills, i work diligently and very patient and creative. above all, i needed to work for my baby and my mom. believe me, just because i was so honest and real, to tell them i was not married and had a child, they couldn't accept me because i had to show a marriage certificate. wow.

    good thing an educational institution for women, miriam college, took me in for all my worth! i feel i still have to come to terms with this past. i can still cry when i remember that. but i'm so happy now, knowing you are there JBR...real and honest and true...

    warm hugs...


  2. Weena, thank you for your post. I am sorry that you were discriminated by the church. I can see by what you wrote this has been very painful for you. Glad you are in a better space dear one.

  3. Powerful message!

  4. At least God doesn't reject anyone!

  5. Wow. If the video was longer, nobody would be left.

  6. Ouch. I don't go to church. I couldn't handle that kind of rejection.

  7. Thankfully, not all churches are like that. It may seem like it at times. However, hurting people hurt people.

  8. No one should ever feel rejected by their church, unfortunately many do.

  9. Wow. Yep, I went to a few churches like that. It makes me all the more grateful for the acceptance I have found where I attend now.

  10. Wow! Finally someone puts it to video!

    I really don't like organized religion - and have you noticed that organized religion doesn't like people who want [a] God in their lives but don't want to do the normal Sunday morning put-ons? Where will it stop.

  11. Wow - I have so many thoughts about this...I grew up in a poor neighborhood in an abusive home (obviously). There was a church bus that came through every wed and sun to take the "poor" kids to Pentecostal church. I went twice a week. There were a 'clique' of girls in the church around my age. They did NOT accept me. I was poor white trash, I had short hair and did not wear dresses. They made fun of me, teased me and looked down on me because I was not "one" of them. They reinforced what I had learned from my parents - that I would not be accepted or loved and that I was worthless trash. Did they pray to the same God who never answered me as my father raped me?
    I don't know the answer to that....
    Do I believe all *christians* are like that? No -I don't. God may accept us as we are - without judgement or ridicule - but the people I went to church with did not. However, it was still better than being at *home*.

  12. God does hear prayers. It's the Church who are suppose to be doing God's work on the Earth. It's the church who isn't always listening and walking in love. The church will have to answer to God someday.

  13. Loved this! Acceptance says far more than rejection ever will. (Hugs)Indigo

  14. Praise God for loving us as we are.

  15. that is exactly why i stopped going to church---
    unfortunately , that is the same reason my 15 yr old daughter stopped as well...(over a year ago).
    i know many folks who long to go and belong to a church -- but feel they don't belong there.

    happy monday
