There is a saying that I hear often…” you will get double for your trouble. “
In the midst of my pain, and when I was struggling to get free from my pain and addictions, there was no way I could believe my life could get better. I felt heavy and overwhelmed all the time and everything in my life was suffering. My finances were a mess, my children were out of control, and my relationships were failing because I had no boundaries put in place.
My life was a complete disaster. I had every excuse possible to stay in my addiction, but I wanted out. I didn’t want to remain the same, so with God’s help I kept fighting. I kept seeking, I kept crying, and I kept feeling my feelings.
Isaiah 61:8 “For I, the Lord, love justice. I hate robbery, and wrongdoing. I will faithfully reward my people for their suffering and make an everlasting covenant with them. NLT
What do you need to believe God for today?
Surrender your life to him, he is faithful. Don’t allow shame and guilt to hold you back anymore!
The world tells my nephew he has a disability, but after getting to witness him marry his bride this weekend-I actually think those of us who live without a labeled disability are the ones with a disability. We live with such limited beliefs, constantly caring what the world thinks of us, obsessed with our looks, or focused on the next level of success. We are the ones missing out, not my nephew with Down Syndrome. He is present at every moment, constantly happy with a smile on his face, wears whatever he feels like, never judges others and full of love. I’m in tears this morning asking Jesus to help me live like my nephew with a so called disability. Thank you Michael and Jessica Sharkey for being my teachers this weekend!! By the way as I was leaving this weekend he asked for this big hug. ❤️#downsyndrome
