Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder

I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.

Jewel: The fear of discovery is ever present in the world of healing. I don’t long to reel in some piece of my past that wrecked havoc in my soul, but it’s something I’ve had to do. I wish I could just leave the past behind without an exploration of it’s pain and tragedy, but that simply did not work.

When I left my past behind, unexplored and undiscovered, I didn’t know myself. Sadly, it somehow perpetuated the bad.

It kept me a prisoner. I am no longer a prisoner but I walk with healed wounds, scars that bear witness to my story.

Gem: When I am too weak for the battle, God redeems me. He speaks tenderly to me and says, “I have chosen you and have not rejected you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isiah 41: 9-10.

Metaphorical Gunpowder: This week I believe I broke another bond or agreement I had with my abusive past. When I kept quiet about my mother’s abuse or anyone’s abuse for that matter, I keeps me in a secret contract with them. I don’t want any more secret contracts with anybody. Shout your story out loud!

Leave your jewel, a gem or something you kept yourself free from with metaphorical gunpowder.

Happy Saturday!
