"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!

“You know all that sympathy that you feel for an abused child who suffers without a good mom or dad to love and care for them? Well, they don’t stay children forever. No one magically becomes an adult the day they turn eighteen. Some people grow up sooner, many grow up later. Some never really do. But just remember that some people in this world are older versions of those same kids we cry for.” Ashly Lorenza

What a powerful quote. These words hold truth. I sure can contest to that!

I will add....

There is hope! Our Heavenly Daddy will heal those painful wounds.

But there is a catch....

We have to let Him!


  1. Hi JBR,
    In Christ, there is always hope. How awesome is that? Thank you for sharing and may God bless you

  2. That is an amazing quote - and I absolutely agree with it. Your comment, "We have to let Him!" ... so powerful, and so true. I absolutely connected with this post.

  3. That quote offers an amazing perspective! God is so able when we allow Him!

  4. That is a great quote, and there is so much truth in your post too.

  5. That's definitely something for people to remember-- to be compassionate and supportive of all abuse survivors, regardless of their age, gender, orientation, religion, race, anything.

    Thank you for your continued support, JBR. It means so much to me.

    Be well,

  6. That's a good quote. ((HUGS))

  7. Hi hon,
    Opening up to Father is easy, it is the letting go and trusting Him that is hard, but the wonderful thing is that as soon as you do it, He is right there to catch you and help you.


  8. oh that's so true. there are many 'children' hidden in the sea of grown-ups we pass each day... me? i just hit 21 *grin* love and hugs!

  9. Pain has an amazingly effective way
    of helping us to the solution
    if we just don't numb it down.
    That, I think, is the hard part.
    Sometimes I ache over all the pain in this old world
    and then I have to remember the cross,
    remember how redemptive His heart
    and how fierce His love
    and how sweet and thorough His comfort.
    Oh Lord for grace to have compassion
    and faith.

  10. This is very true - the teenagers that some older people sneer at have broken hearts. The drug addicts and prostitutes have broken hearts.
