Surrender In All Situations

So what does it mean to surrender; to bring your spirit in line with God’s will, when everything seems like it’s upside down and it feels as though God isn’t there. How do you surrender, or rest or have peace when you’re in the midst of a trial and anxiety is high and troubles abound?

I Can’t Let Go Of The Past!

This post isn’t for everyone. I’m an extremely open person and there may be some things which not everyone will want to read here about my past etc. But if you are struggling with letting go of the past – the people you have slept with, things you have done, and things that have happened to you that have left you broken – This post is for you.

I want to expose my nakedness in this post in the hope that it will encourage anyone who may be feeling broken.

There Is Nothing Wrong With You

Good afternoon, I hope you are well. I’m not going to waste any time today and I want to get straight into the subject of this post – “I’m not good enough”. Have you ever felt like that, or had similar thoughts?

During my Christian walk there have been many times when I have not only thought this, but really believed it deep down inside my heart. It was that belief that lead me to think many other negative things and truly regard myself in that light. There are times I have thought I’m not good enough, not only that I’m not good enough for myself, but not good enough for anyone. Not good enough to be a wife, not good enough to be a mother in a family, not good enough to be successful, simply not good enough.

Peace For The Broken Hearted

Good Morning all, once again I hope this latest post finds you well & I pray you will be blessed by it. This week for me has been truly insightful & I wanted to shared some of the things God has taught me  with regards to peace, trust and emotional healing.

The things we do day to day such as work or school can sometimes mask the true emotions that we harbour and carry around with us inwardly. This week almost out of nowhere I was able to reflect and listen to my heart and spirit. Sometimes you have to stop moving and be still so you can hear clearly. One of the most important things we have to do is be honest with ourselves & I found myself facing my emotions head on. What came out, or what I was able to say to myself was Ferai, you are still very much emotionally broken, still hurting, still dealing with abandonment issues, still dealing with trust issues & still dealing with love issues. Now this entire blog focuses on the broken hearted and emotional healing, but this is still a process I myself am going through. The one question which stood out to me and one I posed to God through the course of this week was ‘how does one attain true inner peace?’. Not outwardly, but inwardly; how does one become totally at peace with themselves, with others around them and most importantly, truly have peace with Christ.

The Broken Hearted Break Hearts – There Is Healing In Christ Jesus

Good Evening once again, I hope this message finds you well. Today I want to write about people (myself included) who are emotionally broken or hurting & how this can effect not only them, but those around them. Without wasting time I will go straight to the point, people with broken hearts break hearts. This is a concept which may seem strange to those who cannot relate, but if you can, know you are not alone & I hope these words will offer comfort to you as we go through this journey we call life.

Last night my mother & I were driving home with a close family friend who too has been broken hearted & experienced the challenges being abused & broken bring when you try to pick up the pieces of your life. This woman knows me very well & is one of the few people I can speak to without holding back (I thank God for her life), & we began to discuss women. Not in general, but specific to those who are broken, beaten down in spirit & left without hope. We began to discuss how God heals us, but also how difficult the process can be. For me to explain fully where I am coming from I am going to have to tell you a little bit about my past and discuss in detail the relationship I have with my mother.

There Is Hope For The Desolate

Greetings once again I hope all is well with you & if not do not fear for there is always hope. As the year draws to an end, people generally begin to think about where they are going in life and reflect on their past achievements. My thought and message today relates to hope. The hope of which I speak is for those who may have given up or who feel broken with no way out. In my life I have faced many trials and tribulations but have found the word of God to be truly sound; it is living waters and heals, restores and breathes life to dry bones.

What do you do when you’ve hit rock bottom? In my last post I spoke briefly about my struggles with depression throughout my life, so believe me when I say I have been there and at certain points in my life have been so blinded and left so broken that hope seemed far away and out of sight; yes there are times when I have felt like I didn’t want to be alive literally. As you read my posts I will share with you all my trials and tribulation, but I take each day as it comes and today I will focus on hope for the hopeless.

Broken Hearted

Salutations & greetings where ever you are in the world, I hope this message finds you well & hope you will be blessed by it.

It’s taken me a long time to write my first post. When I started I knew what I wanted to accomplish by writing publicly, but was unsure how to go about it, but I know I am now ready & Christ will be my strength. As I write this I am still very much broken hearted and in a process of healing and restoration many Christians go through on the road to salvation.

Over the years as I have tried to move towards the righteousness of Christ, I have struggled to find fellow Christians to talk to about my past or areas where I have found the most challenges & difficulties. I hate to “think” or “suppose” where the matters of Christ are concerned, but in this one instance I will. In my experience I have found people really don’t like to be open about who they are and where they are coming from, but if you don’t know or hide where you are coming from, how can you know where you are going?
