Sometimes in marriage we live our lives with a lot of untold truths,baggage, and hurt from our past. We don’t want others to know that wehave been damaged and broken by others–as if we’re weak–
This was ME…
I lived my life hiding behind a tough girl persona. For years I
allowed myself to live a life separate from who GOD called me to be and
INDEED created me to be. I never knew how to truly love myself nor
others. I was a little girl searching for love from men. I never had a
Father to show me how it felt to have love, be loved, and give nothing
in return. I did NOT love GOD, myself, or others!
**IT WAS JUST ME AGAINST

moment my husband decided he wanted to leave. I told him things like:
“I have a house to go home to. I don’t need you” or “I can take care of
You see, what I saw as a child was women in unhealthy
relationships. They were with their spouses because the bills were paid.
But, the love was gone. I thought that was what a marriage was supposed
to look like…I took those things I saw into 14 years of my marriage. I
ALMOST lost it ALL!
I finally had to recognize the thing that was hindering me was ME!!
I did a self check, some soul searching, and healing. All these things
combined made me a better wife, mother, and friend. I stopped allowing
the enemy to have so much power over me! I stopped speaking in the
atmosphere things I was afraid of. I started to 🙏 even when I didn’t
see a quick turn around. I modeled the fruit of the spirit! I was
determined to be healed and finally have peace!!
It has been a hard battle, but well worth the fight! DON’T YOU DARE
GIVE UP! You have one more round left in you. Remember who loves you
