I am a survivor of extremely severe ritualistic childhood abuse and sadistic systematic torture. Without God's intervention in my life I wouldn't be here - NOW is the time for me to tell MY story by speaking the TRUTH about MY life. I will be silenced no more! On this blog I share MY life, MY healing journey; helpful quotes/stuff I come across and MY thoughts along the way. The more I speak out the more liberated I am from the shame and trauma of the abuse. My broken wings are gradually being restored. This blog has helped me begin to get my voice back and documents the journey God is taking me on to heal me from the trauma and damage caused by that most appalling abuse.

BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN WOMAN

A friend sent me the following poem and I thought it was so good it was worth sharing here.

”A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her”

When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living. I'm whispering' I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven'

When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it

When I say 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain, I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon HIS name

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!

Pretty is as Pretty does but, Beautiful is just plain Beautiful
