using my sword to fight

time to get real friends…
I started counseling last week.
wow, why is that so hard to say outloud?
One thing I am learning is that I need to be me, and right now “this me” is going to counseling.

The best part of my counseling is that my counseler is a christian.
We pray, we ask God to intervene, we ask God to be the one to change my heart.

We ask God to give me the bravery to use my sword to fight off the lies and hurts that Satan has been attacking me with.

Yesterday I sat in my counseling session with my eyes closed recalling memories from my past. Memories that all led back to a lie I have been believing for so long. A lie that has impacted every relationship in my life.

I believed the lie that I was an outcast and that I didn’t belong.

This lie has led me to be insecure, defensive, outspoken, over the top, and emotionally unstable at times.

During my session God revealed me to His truth.
I am His child {John 1:12-13} , He CHOSE me {Colossians 3:12}, He loves me { 1 Thessalonians 1:4}, He forgives me {Ephesians 1:7}, I am accepted {Romans 15:7}.

I knew these verses before my session but this time I allowed God to remove the lies that were living in my heart and replace them with these truths. Truths that I am finally accepting as mine.

Truths that define me.

I still have a ways to go in my sessions but I starting to feel free already. Free to move forward with truth as my weapon.

What truth are you not letting into your heart even though you know it in your head??

I was provided a free JORD Wood Watch to review. No other compensation was received and all opinions are 100% mine. When JORD reached out and asked us to review one of their watches, I may have squealed and did a little happy dance. #kiddingnotkidding I knew right away that Jake would be the one […]

When I first saw the trend of Woven Wall Hangings, I fell in love at first sight. I could help but daydream about the textile possibilities. But daydreams and woven textile Pinterest boards were as far as my relationship went until… Until I saw the 3.00 gem at a local thrift store. And this bundle […]
