For a few years now I’ve tried to find a way to share my story with the hopes of reaching others and giving them hope or simply letting them know they aren’t alone. Each time brought me to various frustrating halts from fear to inability to recount without horrifying the reader, or crushing pain from the memories. Lord how do I use these things You have brought me through to reach others without harming myself more, or scaring the pants off people?
Then it occurred to me the truth at times is painful, and it’s ultimately what sets us free, people have the choice to read or not and if my writing is begun with prayer asking God to guide my words then concern can be set aside for how its received by those whom it’s not intended for anyway. I can trust that God will guide those who need to hear my story to what He has me share with each post, and that God will strengthen and enable me to write without it crushing me.
