"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!

Feelings are becoming so much more real to me now.

I was lying in bed again last night, and I would have a memory come up during my struggling years, as a teenager. This is happening more readily now.

I believe since now I am more relaxed in the Holy Spirit, the memories which I can "feel" and sense now, besides when they actually were happening at the time, seem so very real. The colors and even the smells are so vivid. A lot of loneliness and isolation. The feeling of not belonging or being accepted among my peers. Disturbing at times, where I will have to pull myself out of the pain of the memory and recover and give it over to God to help me continue to accept myself as I am. That I am of worth!!!!

I am so amazed to how I suppressed so much of my 'feelings," in order to survive.


  1. memories will remain suppressed until we are ready to deal with them... hugs and love!

  2. Take it one day at a time. Don't force the issue. Let the memories come when they come.

  3. Memories are just that, though they can be vivid they can not replicate the actual harm found in them. Good to see you're coming back to the world of the right now kiddo.

  4. I'm glad you're seeing these memories for what they are - something that happened, that's over. Better to face them and figure out how to live on, than to run for the rest of your life. I pray God puts a special healing patch over each memory that surfaces and surrounds it with His love. So, ultimately you remember what happened, but bigger than that - God's love.

  5. Continuing to pray for you.....prayers of peace, comfort and strength. Prayers of healing....both in the physical and emotionally....lay all the hurts at The Great Physicians Feet.....He will never forsake you.

    Exciting to read. Take the leading of God's hand. You're doing great. He's with you.

  7. AS you release yourself to the Lord he will give you more insight into what you need to see. God Bless.

  8. It is amazing, isn't it? Sometimes I find myself thinking about the same - memories that come to my mind and I wonder why I forgot for so long. Don't worry, my dear, those days of suffering are gone and you are very well accepted and loved now. A big hug.

  9. The work you are doing and the acceptance you are gaining of your whole person and your existence is really WONDERFUL. One of the amazing things that I realized for myself is that I AM STILL me in spite of it all.

  10. Praying for you, today.
    Blessings and hugs, andrea

  11. God is moving in you. Digging up the old stuff, replacing with His love. You go girl!

  12. Our memory and our memories are indeed amazing. I know when I am in the midst of working on my book, our family's memoirs, there are times I just have to stop, because it is like reliving those times all over again. Very, very real. I have to remind myself that that was then, and this is now.

    And as one of your other comments said, it has been my experience also that God doesn't allow us to remember specific things until we are ready to deal with them and be healed.

    Keeping you in prayer,

  13. It's so awesome that you can feel the feelings and then turn them over to God. I'm learning how to do that now too... Hugs to you!

  14. I think the pain is because we didn't feel the feeling. Feelings can't kill but the suppression of them kills our joy, wonder and gratitude.

    Thanks for your writing.

    I have need of reparenting links at

  15. You are becoming stronger and stronger. Praise God.

  16. Hi dear, it's a constant struggle isn't it? we can tell each other to focus on GOD, but it still gets to us ... our worth! We need prayers huh?
    I'll be thinking of you. Bless you.

  17. I agree with what the other comments have already said, you are doing much better, coming right along and I'm with you, girl! Hugs and love your way :)
