"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!

ACCEPTANCE


All my life I have struggled with self worth. My past has contributed to that. Coming from a broken alcoholic home at such a young age. Full of judgement and criticism. Leading to shame. Lack of nurturing, attention from my parents. Not having anyone or any means to express the emotional pain I was going through along with the trauma that was unfolding before me. Only turning within. Stuffing my pain. Searching out survival techniques to get me through life in order to function as best I could. All of these methods establishing what little JBR was to become in order to survive.

But,

Now learning that what others and what I have believed about myself negatively is not truth. Even though I struggle and continue to work on my self worth issues and receiving and giving of "love," I am depending more on the Word of God. What it says about me. Who I truly am, and who I truly am in Christ.

Applying these truths will take time. If any of you know me from my readings, you know I prefer instant healing. In fact who would not? But, as I have been told many times, "what has happened to me in the past did not developed over night." So my healing will have to take time as well.

  1. JBR you've come a long way. I get excited when I read about how God is working in your heart. Changing you daily. One day at a time. You're learning and setting an example for all of us. God Bless.

  2. You're right I think we all would prefer instantaneous healing but we are learning things through the process that we never gain otherwise.

  3. One day at a time, one hour at a time, sometimes one minute at a time, he is with us, helping us to get through it all.

    God bless

  9. I think I have told you this before. I feel like Im reading my own words when you write. I think we have a lot in common with our childhood, except for the alcohol thing.
    I actually start counseling tomorrow to stop picking at the scabs in my brain,which opens them up and Im tired of it
    I am old enough now that I need to just move on to the future,talk about the past to my counselor and not look back no matter what!

  11. LOL> Instant healing - I know this wish ever so well. Considering how much time I had spent being dysfunctional I simply wanted to be healed and done with it. And please not so much pain and struggles on the way....
    It is good however to know that whilst I was so very dysfunctional for so many years, it doesnt take the same amount of time to heal. You have worked wonders and you truly can be proud of you.
    Love and hugs
