Light in the Darkness

They say: “Behind every successful man, there is a strong woman.”

I would like to add: “Behind every strong human, there is a strong mother – or father, sister, and grandfather.”

We should never downplay the importance of family support in the success of an individual.

Which bring me to the painful subject of emotional abuse:

How can we feel our best when we still remember the abuse we experienced as a child? When the toxic dynamic of our family have left us so wounded that we struggle to believe in our own abilities? When we see every potential relationship as an open door to pain and suffering?

Emotional abuse is real, and all the sadness, anger and shame that comes with it is as much sharp and real.

However, God asks us to honor our parents; God asks us to forgive.

In our difficult walk towards healing, God wants us to lay our heavy burden on him.

Like he did 2000 years ago, Jesus wants to carry our sorrow to the cross, and nail – destroy – it there.

He wants us to remember that he is our light and hope – and the light will never shine as bright as it does in the darkness.

Blessed are those who have experienced much pain and sorrow in this life, for the light of the Lord is shinning upon them even more strongly!

God is reminding us that we live in a fallen world, and that we don’t belong here.

The good new is that he already made a way out for us; we just need to follow him.

Amen,

  2. Amen. We as Gods children are a peculiar people and pilgrims just passing through. And on this journey toward our eternal home, we plant seeds of love as others follow along and water with mercy, compassion, kindness and tenderness, until we are all gathered together with our Saviour at the marriage supper. Celebrating with love and praises to our Lord….the way God meant it to be. ❤🙌
