Rescued, Redeemed and Restored.
I’m so thankful you stopped by today. I am a Christian writer who wants women with a story-book past or a prodigal story to know they are seen and loved.
If you’re like me:
● What you want most is to know God loves you.
● You want to grow in your relationship with Christ and need some practical steps to get there.
● What you desperately desire is to replace lies with truth.
● You need the courage to live the life God redeemed and restored.
I understand how you feel! After living too long under the lies that I was not good enough for God to love, He rescued and redeemed what I thought I completely lost—learning to live that restored life takes grace, time, and courage.
Most days, it means grabbing onto one word from God, one passage of scripture, one truth to replace a hundred lies. It means finding the courage to live one word–loved.
I hope you will join me.
And courage is not what I imagined. Courage did not feel like being brave or having superhero strength. Instead, it was weakness and being frightened and still doing what I imagined would kill me. It’s thinking, “If I must die, I must die.” Courage is picking up stones in the face of giant-sized fear. Courage is believing, “may it happen to me as you-God–have said.”
God loves us so much that He sent us the perfect gift. In a tiny baby, we were presented the gift of life and love. There is nothing you and I have to do to receive this gift. We don’t have to straighten up our lives and put on our best behavior. No, all we have to do is say, “Yes, I want Jesus.” Then, we unwrap the greatest gift of all.
When time and distance separate us from loved ones, our heart aches, especially during the holidays. But when a loved one, a family member, our children or friends are not well or hurting, that distance grows, and their difficulty becomes ours. In these times, prayer is our comfort.
