I am a servant of The Lord Jesus Christ. He is my Saviour and Lord. I am also a Christian mother who loves The Lord Jesus Christ. My...

I was born in 1965. I began writing at the age of 9, to process the experience of living. It helped me to cope growing up with domestic violence. Writing has been an expression of the humanity God has given me. It has been my only voice when I had none.

I believe I was saved at the age of 20 by the Grace of God. There has been a lot of forgiveness after that time. But God was faithful and is faithful. I can testify to His great compassion, mercy and love.

My prayer is that the Lord Jesus will use my humanity, imperfections and all. I pray that my writings will reflect God’s love for humanity.

I celebrate my recovery from cutting and bad relationships that caused me to sin, because of sheer loneliness which caused my desperation. I was a cutter for many years. It is my Lord Jesus Christ who has broken the chains! He has delivered me from the torture and the torment of cutting. If you have never been in this prison, it is a pit so deep, I scratched the walls to escape, and only scratched myself. It is a miracle. Cutters, you were not created to cut yourselves you were created to be in a relationship with Jesus Christ. He will take your razors away too, like He took mine.

God didn’t create women to be in adulterous or fornicating relationships. God created women to be His daughters, and to give them in marriage to one man, to be loved and cherished by her husband. Don’t sell yourselves for nothing. Jesus paid the highest price for you, when He was crucified on the Cross. Glory to the Lamb!

I live everyday only by God’s grace. He has forgiven me, and has redeemed me. I am saved by the Blood of Jesus. I live for Him.

The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
(John 10:10)

no one comes to the Father, except through Me.”

“For God so Loved the World that He Gave
His Only Begotten Son, that whoever believes
in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Jesus said, “Unless one is born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God."

For by Grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
(Acts 3:19)

Repent to turn away from sin, and turn to Jesus Christ, to be separated for Christ to be made holy. Repentance, recognizing that you are not good, and can never be good, desiring to throw your sins off like rubbish, you cry out to Jesus, because only He can save you through the Blood He Shed On The Cross. Justification declared righteous by God through the Blood of Jesus, upon faith in Him. Sanctification the process of allowing the Holy Spirit to make you holy. God says “Be holy, for I AM HOLY! (1 Pet1:16)

The Holy Spirit has asked me to testify to the truth of the flesh, it is scarred and fallen, and sets itself up as an idol against God. Don’t trust in your flesh, trust in the One who Died for you on the Cross, The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

To be transparent with my life, to help people to seek the Healer The Lord Jesus Christ, to tell the Truth, and the greatest objective is to glorify God the Father, Jesus Christ, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.

“I feel exceedingly good when I write, I have always loved to write, and my prayers are that the Lord Jesus would use me to write the things He wants me to. Sometimes, I still struggle with my faith. I used to be an angry person, have cut my arms and legs til there was only ribbons of flesh hanging, and blood was dripping down my legs and arms. Yes I am as human as they come, and I pray, “Lord use my humanity, my flawed screwed up life to touch the flawed screwed up lives of the others. God loves you, and I want God to use me to tell you so.”

President Donald Trump doesn’t protect the weak, he bullies them

Our President should protect the vulnerable, instead he blames them. This is what is horribly wrong with our society, the powerful do not protect the weak, instead they exploit them and use their power to take advantage of them and further oppress them. / Because we have allowed these types of men, like our President, to usurp the highest echelons of power we wonder why these things happen, and …

#Why I didn’t report what happened to me

I have never been raped, by the grace and mercy of God, but I was taken advantage of by men in power positions when I was in college, namely my college professors. Because I would sit in their offices to talk about the material in class, they noticed I was extremely lonely and vulnerable. They would invite me to their offices often, and later I was invited to talk to them about my personal prob…

Roseanne debacle

There is a clear difference between what Roseanne Barr said about Valerie Jarrett and what Joy Behar said about Vice-President Mike Pence’s faith. We are to forgive Joy Behar for her ignorant comments, we should pray that she comes to know Jesus Christ. / The Bible says that we are enemies of God, enemies of the Cross until we come to repentance. Joy Behar said what she said, because she is…

Roseanne

What Roseanne Barr tweeted was not funny, and was a racist comment. But Disney, who owns ABC is very selective about what they consider to be hate speech. As a result, of her comments, the show “Roseanne” was cancelled. Many applauded ABC’s, Disney’s decision to hold her accountable for her ’hate speech." But, where was this same accountability when Joy Behar of the show “The View” also on A…
