If you have already read my writing, on “Daily Hope for the Hurting Heart;” you will see that today I am celebrating 59 years of life...54 years of overcoming pain and deep heartache, and 16 years of ministry work.
You know…I remember many times, when I just couldn’t celebrate my birthday; because you see…my birthday only reminded me, of all the pain and deep heartache I faced throughout the many years of my life.
I think the most painful moment in my life, was when my grandfather molested me. People don’t realize that when they hurt a person in this way; that these memories remain engraved within their life. It’s only been because of the grace of God; that I was able to let go and learn how to cope with life…without facing this dreadful memory, every day of my life.
Through each difficult moment of pain and heartache; God took me on a journey that allowed me to be blessed with a brand new life and a new beginning and so today, I don’t celebrate my birth…but today, I celebrate the time, when God stepped in and set me free and allowed me to begin a new life with Him.
You too, may be facing long and drawn out problems from your past…or even the difficult moments of this present time; but just know in your heart; that God’s grace is more than sufficient, to pull you through the moments; that just seem so impossible to get through on your own. Praise Him!
