I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.
A Jewel: Healing is truly a journey — not a destination. In other words, there is no end to getting and being better, right?
So often I hear stories from victims of childhood sexual crimes and they are just at the beginning of opening the door to the memories, the chaos surrounding them, the pain and loss. What I see is that most will stop their minds from further exploration believing they have enough of the story to survive.
I believed that — once. Until my mind, heart, and soul carried me on. God’s purpose for me was further exploration.
Because His love longs for my freedom.
A Gem: I would not be the adult woman that I am today without releasing the broken child that was hiding inside me. I no longer fear like I once did. I see the paths before me and I smile at my future.
Metaphorical Gunpowder: I know that there are rape scenes in my past that I haven’t yet explored, physical abuse that happened to me that I’d rather forget, and the pain and anguish of hurtful people filling my mind with insults and injury. That’s okay. If I need to go there, I’m fine with that. Today I have tools and skills that help me surf right on past them.
