"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!

REAL


That is what my journey is all about, being real.

There is only one of me. Created to only be me.

And....

There is only one of you. Created to only be you.

God has been mending my broken painful areas within my core for over two years now.

The frighten little JBR still gets frightened when uncertain or has not faced a particular fear; but not as often as before. Little JBR peeks and ventures out more from behind the heavy door she created for self-protection. In doing so more of the real JBR has emerged.


We have a real life of our own. Yes, we do.

That empty feeling, that senses that everyone except us has a life - an important life, a valuable life, a better life - is a remnant from the past. It is also a self-defeating belief that is inaccurate.

We are real. So is our life. Jump into it, and we'll see.

Today, I will live my life and treasure it as mine.

  1. I am trying to find the real me that God created too... I know I have not been living my full potential. Too many distractions and fear to change. Sometimes I wonder if staying put is safer???

  2. Naturally Gaia, we are used to our comfort zone. But for me, my comfort zone is where I hide because of my past pain. I do not want that anymore. Yes it is very scary to step out. That goes without saying.....but I have seen so much more freedom in my life since stepping out. But God is right there along side of me. We all heal differently. Our time table is not the same in healing. Our desire to get healed is not the same also. It matters how much you want it! Blessings.

  5. JBR I have seen so much growth and hope in your blog the last year. Yes there are up and downs, but there is a real healing process going on. I don't know if you are like me and think things should be going faster, but it's on God's time, not ours. We have both had a lot of stuff to over come. My little Wanda is still so afraid, but progress is being made. I want to be here with you through your journey.

  9. The best response ever! I received by a woman who responded to my young naive questions many a years back was a simple....

    WHY DO YOU ASK?

    taught me so much and has helped me many a time. Silences those who are too inquisitive. Makes the others a bit defensive...when they respond you simply say

    Oh?....with no emote :)

  10. CHALLENGE and a Windor Mirrow; what do you say? I say: generally, e = mc^(n-1) for the n-dimensional room. I say this is

    close to self-evident. You think not? Then prove the contrary!

    SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.
