My counselor had an opening today which is normally our "off" week (we are only scheduled once a week but I really want/feel the need to meet weekly but right now can only do so if he has a cancellation). Anyway, we were doing work today on dealing with those lies. In my case they are mostly lies told to me by my mother. She is my mother in the sense that she gave birth to me, but she never nurtured/cared for/loved me the way a mother should love her child. I was robbed of the childhood I deserved, the childhood God would have wanted me to have. It would be easy to just be angry and bitter about it, but the truth is we live in a broken world and that means sometimes very unfair things happen. This is the hand I was dealt and God can take what the enemy meant for evil and use it for good and it is my hope and prayer that He does that in my life. As I wrote yesterday...
- Every day when I get up my ONE GOAL is to LIVE MY LIFE IN A MANNER PLEASING TO HIM
On my way home today the song "Remind me Who I Am" by Jason Gray came on the radio. Coincidence? No... another God-incident. After a session with my counselor dealing with addressing those lies and replacing them with the Truth about who God says I am - I hear this song on the radio. It was an awesome reaffirmation to me. Here are the lyrics:
