I keep finding new songs that are not actually new, except when you get new eyes to see them, and new ears for listening too. I love this one.

Well, anger surfaces again. Guess I still have stuff to work out. Just when you think you have something beaten for good, a new challenge comes along so I post to vent because it rattles me, but here I get good advice and support. The really cool thing now for me is this. I know I am not alone anymore. Not alone! I have friends here, and I have Him too. So with Him I'll push though this too and keep going, that I promise. In three weeks I'll get the chance to tell two more family members about this. Told two already, so just three to go. This telling stuff is freeing too, like one more chain broken and for good, and in this thread I can say I know who is breaking those chains.

I have now testified 5 times at three churches, and I will testify wherever I am asked to speak. I know where I was, and where I am, and who brought me here. Thing I realized lately is that if I forget where I was, I might take for granted this new freedom and who gave it to me. My mentor at church reminded me again too that I was never, ever defined by what people did or said to me, I am defined by God alone and He says I am a masterpiece. You too.

I don't know what this new year brings, but God does. Four years ago my life was totally broken, I felt like I was nothing more than a left over shell of some used up kid. Then I found out I was not rejected by God, and that opened a door to freedom. This past year has had it's challenges as you can see in my posts, and this fall I lost to family members to illness. They were believers and are with Jesus now in heaven. That I have to celebrate, because His healing is complete.

I am learning to take it one day at a time. I focus on today, God will focus on all of the tomorrows. It is not easy, and sometimes I whine, get tired, want to give up and even mess up big time. But my mentor at church told me "son if you mess up, fess up, and let Him help you get up." He does, and I do.

So this Christmas day, my prayer is that we can all find strength, love, mercy, hope and freedom in Christ. My prayer goes out to everyone here, even those who would hate who I am in Him. It is what Jesus wants from me, to be a reflection of Him. Whatever this new year brings, we are not walking this path alone <><....

A Huge Step

This week I finally accepted my past. Parts have always been blurry while others are so very clear. I learned early on that God already knows everything, and that in itself was big for me, having believed that if He did He could never love, want or forgive me. That was a lie of the enemy that I no longer believe.

However, it's always bothered me that everything from start to finish is not clear. I know more now than I ever did, thanks to my counselors and support from friends at church, but it's always bothered me that I do not know it all. I do not know "why".

This week the Spirit told me; "you still have not accepted your own testimony". For a long time He has been saying too that "you do not know who you are yet." Later he asked me if I believed that God knows everything, and that God is leading me.

I said yes, but I don't yet understand it all. I don't understand "why".

So He told me, "it's ok, God does" and asked if I could accept that. I told Him yes, and that I accept what happened as real. I know now I don't have to understand, know or get everything especially not the why. Why? Because the enemy has a hold on the lives of predators. Why did they pick me? I don't know but it doesn't matter now.

So I testified this weekend, Easter, knowing what the work on the cross has done for me. Whatever challenges lie ahead, this much I know. As far as the enemy goes I am finally, fully and forever free. Whenever the enemy brings up my past from now on, I will tell him about his future.
