TRUE LOVE TUESDAY: TRACKING PERSONAL GROWTH

I am beginning to see change in my life. Just reading past posts from this blog I see personal growth. I am not as fearful as I was when I started this blogging back in June 2007. I have jumped a few hurdles and ready for the next. I mean I am confident and excited about all the possibilities of right now. The New Year will be upon us and I am thinking with reverence about all that happened to me in 2007. It was tough, I can't even sugar-coat it. I was close to suicide, I was overwhelmed with fear and doubt and shame and grief. I couldn't breathe and I couldn't focus. But the whole time God was whispering. I barely heard God above all my mess. Each moment both joyful and painful held it's own magical lessons for me. BE STILL. BE STILL. BE STILL. Just by re-reading my blog posts I can see when I heard GOD and I began to change my perspective, my attitude and my mind. My faith grew stronger as the days went by and no matter what came at me and God knows, a lot came at me, I was able to let GO and LET GOD.
I am growing in my faith, I am growing as a woman, I am growing as a mother, I am growing as a person who loves life.

Hey, Babz, When non-believers ask me how I can believe in a
God that lets tragic things happen to His children, I tell them, my faith is not about protetcing me from tradgedy, it's about my Creator being with me, carrying me through, and providing me with the strength to survive.I am grateful to see He has done the same for you. We are so blessed to be His children. Thanks again for being honest about what it sometimes takes to get through this life. Truly, no-one gets through unscathed!

Yes I am feeling very mature these days. It is a lovely feeling to walk through fire and know you walked through fire and are better for it.

It's been a while since I've visited, and I can really see the energy has shifted.

I personally love blogging (look at all my blogs LOL) and I find that my personal blog, the one where I share my thoghts, ideas, and feelings has really been a catalyst for change for me.

For me, it's almost like going to a therapist... you know, the one that just sits there and listenes, and every now and then says... something short and to the point.

I'm glad to see that you are so on track right now!

May your christmas be blessed!

What a wonderful testament to your faith and God's love, and his bringing you through. We are all challenged in our lives to deal with difficult situations, difficult people, life defying moments that often test our faith. I was once told that these times are critical to our growth, these times strenghthen our faith. Like a weightlifter, lifts weights to get stronger...our trials are our spiritual weights, with each trial we overcome, we become stronger. God wants us to go beyond FAITH, he wants us just not to believe, but to KNOW his greatness, his love, his passion for us. Be blesses sis.

Ah! My fellow Warrior Goddess I read the growth in your blog and I know that we are meant for beautiful things. Shed those layers and keep growing in new and vast ways. You are made Light from the Great Deity and you must shine by that virtue alone.
