In Other Words Tuesday


“There was a time when [you fill in] defined my life and left me physically void, cocooned in a prison of fear. It stole my every hope and dream. But God’s love, and His Word set my heart free. I learned that within the confines of God’s story, nothing had been stolen from me, rather everything was given to me. My life, which felt so out of control, was in reality in complete control – God’s control.”: There was a time when rejection defined my life, and left me physically void, cocooned in a prison of fear. I felt as if everything I did was not good enough, that I was a total failure. I felt as if I were not worthy of any ones love, I actually thought that the world would have been much better off if the abortion had worked, instead of me surviving. But, praise God, He loved me through my hurt and pain. He was in total control of my life from the very moment of my conception. He blessed me by saving my life, and then saving my soul. A double portion of precious blessings were given to me. I thank Him for freeing me from the chains of self doubt, and self hatred. He controls my life, and I am so glad He does. He loves me, what more do I need?? Nothing.

{{hugs}} sweetie. You are never rejected by the One who created you. I'm so glad He defines your life.

You are right, Denise. There are times in our lives where we think we can not go on. But than God sends a gentle reminder (or not-so-gentle)how much He loves us.
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on this week's quote.

So glad you stop and remember who you are in Christ. So good to be defined by Him and none other. And the truth shall set you free. Thank you for your testimony. Hugs and much love always!

Denise, the circumstances may be different but I think most people, especially women, can relate to being defined by rejection. Thank you for sharing that with us today.
