Lessons Learned…the hard way! (John 1:1)

Many of you may wonder why I write this blog the way that I do…
Well, as some parents may teach their children little by little, day by day, year by year with morals to the story so that each story has a deeper meaning and makes an impact in that child’s life, I only wish that my parents had taught me that way. Unfortunately, I had to learn my lessons the hard way! I had to experience all of the bad, to truly learn where all of the Source of good was… I had to be totally broken, before I truly found the One who could put all of the pieces of me back together.

Now, I could just start out with what I really want to do…SHOUT FROM THE ROOF TOPS THAT GOD IS THE ANSWER TO ALL OF THE QUESTIONS IN THIS LIFE… but, how many would believe me. How many would think it is just another “Jesus Freak” trying to push their thoughts and beliefs down someone’s throat. I never want to offend anyone…but I can tell you that each blog entry has been a lesson learned the hard way. I can write on so many subjects that I have studied in the SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS. But, I never want anyone to walk the path of darkness that I have had to walk to learn these lessons. I want everyone to find that Light that will lead them out of the dark and down the right path for their lives.

My heart goes out to each person who has ever fallen victim to the deceit that lies deep in the hearts of some people, the anger that lurks in hearts just waiting to explode, and manipulations of those who don’t care who they hurt. I never want anyone hurt the way that I have been hurt. No one deserves to be abused and broken. If only one person can learn the lessons that I learned just by reading my blog, instead of living the pain of it the way that I did, then this blog will be successful.

John 1:1-5 (NIV) The Word Became Flesh
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the Light of all mankind. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

Christ is the Light that will lead you out of darkness, reveal all truths, and heal all wounds. I pray that each person will reach for Him. Don’t wait to be broken like I was!

  1. I love how you connect your posts with scripture 🙂 I have spoken with many survivors of abuse/rape and many of them have given up on God or are angry with him for allowing these terrible things to happen to them. It’s good to find someone who sees that God can help with the struggle.

    • Thanks for following and thanks for the encouraging comments. I thank God for revealing Himself to me and saving me. See “Rescued! When I did not know that I needed it..” Just like other victims, we don’t even realize that we are being abused because we get so used to it. God is the Answer to everything! Bless you and every victim that you help!!

  2. I love reading your posts because honestly I find them inspirational. I admire you, because your painful experiences have made you hold on to God more; some people walk away from Him when they hit a rough patch because they feel God deserted them. I hope many feel inspired by your blog like I do. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for your kind words… In all of my brokenness, God was the one who got me back together. I was like Ezekiel’s dry bones that God had to speak life back into me as my bones were scattered all over. He is the Glue who continues to hold me together when my whole world seems to fall apart around me. I owe Him my life and the life of my children… He is an awesome God and I just want others to know it too.. May God bless you, my friend!!
