God NEVER makes mistakes when He creates people, for He makes them for His purpose.
Society, the world, the things in the world, these are the things that will try to mold you. They will try to shape you, they will tell you how ugly, how stupid, how unloved you are.
When you are raised in a dysfunctional home, you learn dysfunctional things, you learn to live and accept dysfunction in your life, for this is all you know. You search for love, and even when, and if you find it, you do not recognize it, for it doesn't come as the kind of love you are familiar with; dysfunctional love.
In 1999 I was diagnosed with a mind disease. Society said I would have to be on mind drugs all my life, or I would never be able to function without them. Society said it was incurable. Unfortuntately, I accepted and believed the lie, and so I lived the lie for some years, because I didn't know God, nor the Power of God. I had two very abusive husbands which I finally left them both, after each time getting brave enough to leave everything behind, including one child in one of the instances. Hurting people make hurting and desperate choices, and my failed marriages only validated my unworthiness I felt in my soul and mind, and that I felt about myself, because of all the hurt and pain instilled in me. When you don't have God, you will never know the worth in your own-self, nor in other people.
Somehow I managed to start reading about God. Without knowing Him, or His Love, I felt a stirring of peace inside me I had never experienced before. Though I failed many times, God would not give upon me. He loved me, and even though my life was the life of the Prodigal Daughter, my God, my Father, my Abba Daddy, He welcomed me home into HIs Loving Arms of Peace and Comfort. He had never left me in all the things I was running to or from. He waited patiently on me,, for He knew my heart. He knew I would finally find the love in Him I had always longed for, I craved, and this love, His Love, is all the love I had ever needed to be fulfilled.
I am an OVERCOMER!! through Christ Jesus who gives me Strength, for you see, when I realized God had the Power to take away my sickness that I had accepted, I called upon His Name. I begged for forgiveness the way I had lived. I told God I did not want to be like I was and He heard me. I told Him that I knew I was meant to be more than society had made me to believe I was. I have endured my storms, I have climbed my mountains, I have come from the deserts and walked through dark valley's, BUT GOD, He was there all the time leading me to my destiny!! He is still directing my paths. HALLELUJAH !!! and it is His Destiny for me, that I will always follow.
You see, society builds up lies, they go against all that God says He can take care of. He heals, but society gives excuses for you to live lies. Society will give you doubts and fears. These are lies from satan, the enemy, for God can, and will do everything in your life to draw you UNTO Himself. He can make you whole when society says you cannot be whole. I am living proof that God will do just exactly what He says He will do............I do not take drugs for this "mind disease" that society had tagged me with. God is blessing my life in many things, and in many ways.......and He will do the same for all those that are sincere in heart, and call upon His Name.
Your GOD, my GOD, He is an awesome God, and He has all the answers to any of our needs..........HALLELUJAH! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME! We have OVERCOME !
