Soul Healing

As I was experiencing some minor health symptoms today I sighed, “How long, Lord? When will my miracle be complete?”  Oh, it’s close.  It really is.  I am healthier than I have been in 30 years.  These minor issues are the final step.  But the Lord reminded me again of the key:  “Dear friend, I … More Soul Healing

Christmas

Christmas is a strange time of year for me.  Christmas in the western part of the world tends to revolve around children.  For most people, that is a wonderful time to recreate.  However, for me, childhood is hardly a place I want to revisit. The first Christmas morning I have a memory of I was … More Christmas

From Death to Life

The Lord has been speaking to me about the fractures in our lives.  Mine were more pronounced due to the type of abuse I went through but we all have them whether we admit it or not.  When we are hurt or go through difficult experiences we try to shut down the pain of those … More From Death to Life

Agreements

The spirit realm by design is profoundly legal in its structure.  This includes both the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness.  Agreements and vows made are powerful.  When they are made in accordance with the principles of God’s Kingdom they secure us to His will (i.e. when we “agree” with the Word of … More Agreements

Altars

I was on a mission this morning.  I was going to de-activate this blog.  I hardly write anymore.  These last few years have opened up the truth that is too painful to write.  So much of my life that I thought I knew has turned out to be wrong.  Rather than go back and attempt … More Altars

New Beginnings

To say 2015 was a difficult year is a huge understatement.  There is a quote going around on social media that says “There are years that ask questions and years that answer.” (Zora Neale Hurston, American folklorist and author.)  2015 was a year that answered and the answers were very hard.   Most people don’t … More New Beginnings

After the Rain

It’s raining here today.  As a kid, rain was a comfort to me.  Not sure why.  The louder and more demonstrative the storm, the better I felt.  I wonder sometimes if it was just my way of feeling heard.  I did not know how to address or articulate the storm inside me so I quietly … More After the Rain

Transforming Truth

“Truth is connected to memory – both in our personal histories as well as the history of God’s redemptive actions performed on our behalf.”~ John J. Parsons.   As a survivor of sexual abuse, my view of my life was that of a series of horrendous events that left me a mess in not just mind … More Transforming Truth

Being Human

I learned a new concept recently.  It’s called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – PTSD. Boy, does that explain a lot!! PTSD is a term for the various symptoms a person experiences following a traumatic event.  For those who have been sexually abused as children, PTSD usually shows up immediately in some form but can resurface … More Being Human
