"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!

IN A NAME

Therapy yesterday was a continuation of the problems I have with accepting my name Grace. My t. asked me to do a diagram of my name and what it represents.

As you see in this diagram two versions. One with lowercase letters representing little Grace and then the capitalized letters representing present Grace. I was asked to attach to my name on both feelings I feel/felt that go along with it. Naturally it was easier attaching the negative feelings to the little one than the positive ones to the adult.

In looking at these offshoots about myself from my name, especially the little one, gives a more clearer perspective to what I actually felt and believed all these years about myself. Not just that, it brings to light more of the trauma of the day. The lying monsters of emotional pain I still must face. Not only with my little one, but viewing and writing the offshoots of positives, is just as hard to face. Because now I am dealing with truth! Wo-

  5. I grew up with issues since my mother was an alcoholic. It is a known fact how insecure we can become. My husband has said to be a million times "your an adult now, get over it." Well seeing your chart with all the insecurities attached no one can just drop them and move forward but I am thankful that you are making such wonderful progress and finding that you are not those things. ((HUGS))

  9. I think it helps to put down on paper what is going on in your thoughts. It helps you to better understand things and also to learn to cope with what is bothering you and find and rejoice in the good. I hope you have a nice weekend! :)

  10. That's a really good exercise in that it allows so concretely for the past to be separated from the present. You are blessing so many by being so transparent with your process. God bless you richly!
