Learning to heal: 5 ways Jesus sacrificed for you

Have you ever wondered whether your sacrifices were worth it?  Letting go of the past for a better future requires sacrifice… but it can be hard to look beyond the pain and hurt.

Letting go of toxic shame

Letting go of toxic shame

The sweat dripped down my forehead rapidly as I realized I had messed up again.  Getting lost while driving was common for me; I shamed myself for my miscalculations.  Even with the GPS on, I would get lost—fearfully anticipating the worst.  Over and over again, I would internally question my abilities thinking “Why are you…

Rest and Surrender

Rest and Surrender

When your heart is troubled, it can sometimes feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster. The ups and downs can continue with no rest in sight. It’s utterly exhausting.

Grief: recognizing that you don’t have to bear it alone

In loss, there you will find grief. It can come on suddenly when we acknowledge what we have lost.  Grief can bring us to a place of great despair. It’s hard to know what to do.  I was deeply stricken by grief as I came to terms with the losses I experienced from my childhood,…

The power of salvation for restoration

I felt like I was beyond repair; I needed to acknowledge that I had a problem, and that I couldn’t fix it on my own. I tried many times, but the compulsion to control certain things—brought on by unresolved pain from the past—overtook me.  I felt lost, and broken to the core, but knew that…

Is change really possible for me?

My doubts and insecurities in my identity were leading me to feel trapped and causing me to think I could not change.  I didn’t think I could trust God to change my mindset, even if I asked him. I thought this change would be too hard, and would bring me on a journey that was…
