Every week we get together and share our Faith with prayers, words of encouragement and inspiring women that lift one another up. It's a wonderful party on Twitter and I encourage you to join us!
Tonight Kate has chosen the word BREAK. We have 5 minutes of unedited, fast typing as we listen to our hearts as God supplies us with what message He has put upon us to write.
Ready, set, GO!
Last Saturday I spoke to a group of Christians regarding my childhood. Before I went up to the podium I was shaking uncontrollably. Honestly, I don't know why- it wasn't the first time I ever spoke about my upbringing. But this time was different and I knew it. Afterwards, I saw the faces of those women that my message effected, and I hurt for each one of them. All I could do was offer hope and a place of refuge... Our Lords loving arms. You see, women who's been abused can be weak and filled with fear. They aren't sure who to trust and opening talk about what goes on behind closed doors. So, God used my story to shed the shame of abuse, to be a beacon of light for salvation, and the courage to be bold enough to speak the truth.
1 Corinthians 16:13-14 Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be Strong. And do everything with love.
My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Find refuge in His arms
