Looking back…

I know that I have always been singing to the LORD. When I was little, I would make up songs and sing to HIM while in the bathtub for hours, if mom would let me.

Never being officially introduced to the LORD growing up, I stayed lost for a long time. I was exposed to things little girls should never know about until they are adults and satan had his fun. My view of myself was pretty dark and I was in a downward spiral for many, many years. I tried to lift myself up with drinking, thinking I could escape, it only made my outlook even darker.

I was searching in all the wrong places, coming up empty every time, thinking there was no place for me. I was ready to call it quits, for good, when a dear friend heard my cry and took my hand, as I walked toward salvation, finally giving my life to CHRIST. Thank you Sari.

It took thirty three years for me to actually realize HE had been gently knocking on my heart. Those years were not time wasted, they were time spent experiencing life as the world defines it. I came to understand that there is a difference, for the better, when you choose to walk with CHRIST. I never did measure up to the world’s standard and I know now that I don’t need to.

I am made perfect in GOD’s eyes, scars and all. Just as HE made me.

I am learning to love me and inturn be able to better love on others. To be the vessel He strives for in me. To do HIS will and love on those as an outstretched arm. The freedom to love the “me” that GOD created. Knowing that HE never leaves us to the dark. HE is forever light and the love of my life.

I thank you LORD for the other love of my life, my husband Thomas. He has stood by me through my darkness, never giving up. He has always seen a light in me and for that I love you!

To my family and friends, I thank you for your love and support!
