Anyway, I'm a Christian with a few very close friends of varying degrees of faith. My church is not large, and has few other moms like me. I'm looking for a place to share and grow, and perhaps loose some of my baggage.
Everyone's got it, but I find as Christians we hide the ugly bags lest others find us lacking. That is the one thing about us that makes me crazy! I believe we need each other to help us on our walk with Jesus, and we need to open the bags and deal with the stuff in there, but I'm afraid.
Jesus lives me, defends me, and God forgives me, but I'm not always sure how my church family feels about me.
Whoa! did I say that out loud?
Ya, too much too soon? Probably.
Sorry 'bout that. I may as well put it all out there right from the start.
Anyway, good night all, and I look forward to meaningful conversations.

Hi, Dee. Welcome to Worthy! You're upfront, open-hearted, humble and honest. You've laid your cards on the table for all to see, so to speak. Your heart is troubled... Your mind is plagued by irrational thoughts. You need healing for your wounded soul and solace that only your Saviour can provide... The peace of God, that passes all understanding. You've come to the right place, dear sister. I understand the "baggage" aspect... And yeah, we all have events and trauma from the past that can haunt us. If we allow it to. The baggage in hand is yours to release and walk away from. There's also baggage that is shackled to you. And you're desperate to be free from the bondage in which you've become ensnared. This is no easy thing... I know. You've been victimized. Here is sanctuary. There's encouragement of the Word, prayer teams and godly counsel. It's yours for the asking... But it may take time, depending on the depth of your injuries. Right now, the Lord wants to embrace you with His presence. Allow Him to do that. He also wants to comfort you. Give Him permission. God bless you, Dee. There's already a multitude of prayers being offered up in your behalf. Trust in that. And most of all, trust in the Lord your God.

PurpleDee. You've touch on some pretty deep issues that have the ability to hold Christians in bondage. The good news, as you know, is that Christ has paid the price for our freedom. Jesus is in the business of setting the captives free. Welcome!
