When we are young and our days seem to be endless, we turn to our own thoughts and wish we could be, could have, or could go and find peace, joy, and fulfillment for the lives we live in the emotional trauma.  But not me, I often wished for a new home and a new job or business with freedom from the neglect and abuse I encountered daily.  

God has brought me full circle this trip back to Charlotte, North Carolina, where my daughter lives.  He has brought me back to where it all started in 1963 to work out those wishes and find some wisdom from it all.  I’m determined my healing will tap into a depth that will bring me into his presence and plan for the rest of my life.  I will not give up until I see the joy of the Lord in my life again.

Join me today in your present circumstances and trust God will bring your circle closer to Him instead of creating a circle filled with regret, shame, and guilt for not knowing what you did not initially understand as a child.  Let your inner child experience a love that can only be felt through a relationship with him and find the Peace that surpasses all understanding.

A Reflection in The Truth
Psalm 28:7

The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
