Thankful Thursday


Thanks to Sonya-Lee for hosting T.T. Want to participate? Post 5 things you're thankful and add your name at http://truth4thejourney.blogspot.com/


Last year when I started writing....I struggled with not wanting anyone to know the things that had happened. I believed there had to have been something wrong with me that caused those things....The reviews I've gotten have blown me away..
Today...someone who read the story pulled me aside....I'm not alone anymore...if you can do it....I can too. Others have told me my story has given them hope and they're using the tools to work towards freedom....

So this week I'm totally thankful for:


1.the courage to go through with publication
2.God using what I wrote to help people know there is hope and freedom
3.God redeeming people's broken lives and setting captives free
4.my close friend who believed in me, pushed me, and knew God was going to use what I wrote....even when I doubted or wanted to give up. I'm also thankful for her compassion to sit in the dark with me when I couldn't stand for her to even look at me.
5.forgiveness....because he forgives me....I am free to forgive those who hurt me. There is amazing relief and freedom in that...

I am thankful that God has given you the courage to get all of this out into publication! Your testimony and transparency will help others find healing. Jesus came to set the captives FREE!

God bless!

Sarah,
I am so thankful for your friend who encouraged you, too. Today I told someone about your book (story)who had been through alot in her life and she was encouraged by it also. I told her she might have a book to write, too. :)

Blessings,
