Prayer

 Once a man was asked,

“What did you gain by regularly praying to God?”

The man replied,

“Nothing…but let me tell you what I lost;

Anger, ego, greed, depression, insecurity, and fear of death.” 

 

Sometimes, the answer to our prayers is not gaining but losing;

which ultimately is the gain.

Rejoice in Him

As the painfilled memories flow

for they are memories

not actual acts of today.

*

Rejoice in Him

When the pain swells

to tidal waves within

it is pain that is being

brought to land,

sand filters, cleans. 

*

  Rejoice in Him

for your soul is being

cleansed. And as with 

any  new cleansing

it is put back in place,

new.

*

Rejoice in Him

for He Who loves you

removes the old within

a damaged soul.

Rejoice, for He fills those

area’s that have been left

vacant of those hurtful things.

*

Rejoice in Him

for He is filling, giving of Himself

to bring you to a place

where you can

rejoice in Him.

God Saved my Life – Testimony

Cyber Support Group

Written by Laura – Angels by Grace Pub. – Nov. 1997

A hospital in Jekyl Island was having a yearly reunion for those of us that had once been patients there. It included workshops on our recovery and was supposed to be a time of growth and renewal. I attended this reunion with the feeling that I had come far in my healing from childhood abuse. I had high expectations and when everyone was enjoying the Saturday night dance I was, too.

At some point during the dance I decided I wanted to go for a walk along the beach. The room was stuffy and I needed some fresh air. One of the men offered to walk along with me and I agreed. That was the turning point of a week-end that started out wonderful. It ended as a nightmare that I wouldn’t soon forget. I was raped.

During the rape…

I’ve Been Set Free, But…

The Lord has given us a tool to help set us free from the pain and suffering we may have from not only childhood but any abusive relationship.

So many years ago there was so much hurt and pain. The years of childhood were not happy ones and even though we go through many years of hard-core therapy to overcome those memories we can still be plagued by them.

How do we deal with the flashbacks, the times when we jerk straight up in bed awakened by a dream so real it feels like we’re reliving the event? Do we ignore what the Lord may be showing us through a dream? Do we assume it is a nightmare the devil is taunting us with? Do we wipe the sweat off our brow and finally go back to sleep ignoring it?

Several years have been spent reliving the traumatic events of an abusive childhood, the emotional attacks as well as the physical attacks. Child abuse leaves wounds to our hearts that seems to penetrate to the very cells of…
