On the discussion of fear — ask yourself this question: “Do you fear people?“ I feared everything about them — on the inside of my house, that is. Outside of the house, I was okay, well, kind of. People pleasing is fear. I was an ass-kisser for the early part of my life. I believed,Continue reading “F N’ F”
On the discussion of fear — ask yourself this question: “Who taught you to fear?“ Who taught you to fear? I would suggest that it wasn’t God that taught you to fear. It was God that has taught me to not fear.
It’s been a hard journey for me to find and believe in a Heavenly Father that loves, forgives, encourages, and believes in me. A father is supposed to protect. I had no experience with any of this. None — absolutely nothing from my father but murder, rape, and mayhem. How do I learn and reteachContinue reading “F N’ F (Fear Not Friday)”
I was reading an article by a great pastor this morning. He said, “Your biggest enemy probably isn’t who you think it is. It’s not Satan, and it’s not the world around you.

Isn’t everything okay now? If everything is okay and there is no line between what is morally right and whatContinue reading “Does Wickedness Prevail?”
Incest left a scorched path of intolerable pain that I needed healing for. No amount of reparenting my soul was going to touch that pain. A yoga session was not going to be able to quench the sting of this long-laid plan to destroy parts of me and still the lost integrity to my soul.Continue reading “A Healing Balm”
Remember these words today: God is your friend. God is for you, not against you. God understands the limitations of being human and loves us unconditionally. God is our strength when we are running on empty. God forgives me — I need to learn to forgive myself. Have a beautifully blessed weekend!
I was taught that I had no rights, only privileges. My father spoke this over me time and time again. That’s a powerful weapon. I was taught I had no right to speak, eat, drink, laugh or play. Everything had to be given by him through a privilege. WTF! Right? I had to earn everythingContinue reading “A Rebel Cry”
