Living in Fear is a Trap

When I look back over my life of 52 years, one thing stands out the most. I’ve spent a good share of my life “living in fear.”

I lived in fear of an abusive husband finding me. In fear of judgment having run away, leaving my two children behind. And fear of what other’s thought about me. In other words “fear” consumed my thoughts and held me captive in darkness.

The Unusually Vivid Dream

It was a cold winter morning in February of 2015. As dawn began to break, I woke up remembering an unusually vivid dream. The dream, so lifelike, as if I was standing in the dark cave watching.

She could see and hear before the illness, and after the sickness, and could communicate somewhat with Martha Washington, the six-year-old daughter of the family cook. And by the age of seven, she had more than 60 signs to talk with her family.

The Transforming Grace of God

This is a follow-up post to proclaim the transforming grace of God. The previous post “proclaim the grace of God” ended with me saying; “I must share what God has done for me.” 

After given this some deep thought, I selected one glorious thing God has done for me. I believe this “one glorious thing” is the most misunderstood and without this one thing, nothing in life would be glorious.

The one glorious thing is;
