My current reality:
Eating sucks, yawning sucks, sleeping sucks, TMJ sucks, and as a result constant headaches/migraines suck. At this moment a heat pack has taken residence by my jaw. I have met the bottle of ibuprofen almost daily. Frankly, this sucks. I would love to eat normally again without worry. (I get both headaches and migraines since I was 8years old, but TMJ has exasperated this). The TRUTH:
My God still heals. His will is for us to be whole and well. I trust in this. Yes, TMJ is real and the pain sucks, but I refuse to agree that this pain has to exist. (I have been to the doctor..More times than I would like to count these last 8 months. I have the bills to prove it. Believing God still heals does not mean I don't go to the doctor. Doctors also have a purpose as well.) "How long until you take away this pain in my body and in my soul? Lord, I’m trembling in fear! Yahweh, return to me and deliver my life because I know your faithful love is toward me."
Psalms 6:3-4 TPT
Despite this pain Lord, I will praise you! You are faithful even when everything sucks. Haha I am still grateful and in awe of your never-ending faithfulness. Amen!
20 Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. 21 But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have seen and hated both me and my Father. 25 But the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled: ‘They hated me without a cause.’
NOBODY.KNOWS.ME. Going by my past journey, nothing has been more damaging than being in an unhealthy relationship.Studies show that men/women abuse each other equally. Emotional abuse is a form of brainwashing that erodes selfworth,security,trust&chips away to the point where we don't feel we deserve anything better&feel w/o them,we have nothing.It is more detrimental than physical abuse bc it disintegrates ones sense of self/personal value&cuts the core of our essential being,creating psychological/emotional instability.It occurs bc childhood wounds/insecurities.Abusers&victims tend to have traits of personality disorders like borderline,narcissistic,&antisocial personality disorders.It doesn't always lead to physical abuse,but it’s almost always present from either the victim or abuser.We quite often dont see the mistreatment as abusive.We develop coping mechanisms of denial, minimizing & hiding in order to deal w the stress causing severe emotional trauma, illness, depression, anxiety,PTSD or suicide.The most common signs 1.Lack empathy/compassion 2.Make excuses for behavior/has difficulty apologizing They never step up to take responsibility.They deflect rather than acknowledge&apologize.At this point you lose complete respect for them bc of the inability to own the issues that are causing the problems.Step1 is recognizing.Be honest w yourself to regain power over your own life&begin to heal.You can’t allow it to continue.Take care of yourself&put your own needs first.Stop worrying about pleasing/protecting.Set firm boundaries.Don't engage Keep quiet&walk away.Realize you can't “fix” them.You can't make them change.They must want to change/recognize the destructive patterns of their behavior&damage caused. Remember you’re not to blame.You feel like something must be wrong w you since you’ve been treated so poorly.It is NOT you.Rebuild yourself.It is possible that they can change if they deeply desire to.However,the learned behaviors/feelings of entitlement/privilege are difficult to change.They tend to enjoy the power they feel,as a result a low% of them change.Those going through the same,I feel the powerlessness you may feel but WE are not powerless at ALL
For anyone who might be needing a reminder of God’s faithfulness, I hope this encourages you... #Repost @thecashmans with @get_repost
It's funny what you find when you're moving. Shoved in a corner somewhere was a piece of paper with lyrics jotted down of a song idea I had begun writing years ago during a challenging time... The lyrics are very simple, but the #truth is timeless - God is faithful. I probably won't ever record this #song , but (before it gets lost again in this move and not discovered for another 4 years or never :)) I wanted to share a piece of it in hopes that it may #encourage someone out there as it has me...
"You are the God who loves me,
You are the God who heals me,
You are the God who rescues me,
And I will hold on to Your Word and be still,
Praying only for Your pure and perfect will,
Resting in the #peace that comes from knowing You, #faithful#God ." 🎶
Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold fast the confession of our #hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful"
For those guys trying to slide in my DMs & for any future tries: I am not single. I am not married, however, I live with my boyfriend of 5 years. When I say this to you, your reply should not be: so, do you want to meet up- NO. I'm not thirsty. I'm not unsatisfied. I'm not a hoe. I am in a committed relationship that is monogamous. Stop trying to disrespect me because you believe you have some magical situation I would lose everything I've built with a good man for. No boo boo. You are not going to make me leave my man for you. Not today Satan, not today. Talking about what's your sign. STOP is my sign honey. I'm a damn good woman, respect me or get gone.
Jesus jamais prometeu que nós, cristãos, nunca iríamos ter problemas. Ele chegou até a afirmar que os seus seguidores haveriam de passar por tribulações. No entanto, devemos entender que esses problemas não são a nossa derrota. Tudo que acontece conosco coopera para nosso bem.
Uma experiência difícil pode parecer incompreensível agora, mas depois seremos capazes de entendê-la e até mesmo de aprender com ela.
É como o traço de um desenho bonito: o traço sozinho não é belo e nada comunica, mas o desenho final dará sentido àquele traço.
Boa noite, amigos. Boa semana!!! 😀
God wasn’t attracted to you and didn’t choose you because you were big and important—the fact is, there was almost nothing to you. He did it out of sheer love, keeping the promise he made to your ancestors. God stepped in and mightily bought you back out of that world of slavery, freed you from the iron grip of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know this: God , your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations. But he also pays back those who hate him, pays them the wages of death; he isn’t slow to pay them off—those who hate him, he pays right on time.
Deuteronomy 7: 7-10 MSG .

Love is never wasted
It is the gift that gives
And even when it’s gone
Somewhere, somehow, it lives
So if you’re feeling empty
If you cry, my friend
Take a breath, remember
You will love again
Do not regret giving
All you had to give
For love is never wasted
There’s nothing to forgive
Those you loved deserved it
They needed it from you
And maybe when you’re ready
It will return to you
Oh love is never wasted
No regrets, no need
There’s an endless supply
You’ll love again, believe .

• You are slowly taking off your skin and wait ...
Time is coming.
Your era. Our morning. My case.
I care. About each of you.
For every written word.
For every voice I hear.
Calm outside - the only thing that managed to save.
Inside - the waves are still raging.
I'm not ready to give up. Otherwise, everything starts to give up.
-Kettle’s on, my friends🌿
• То самое время, когда медленно снимаешь с себя кожу и ждешь...Вот-вот настанет время.
Твоя эпоха. Наше утро. Мой случай.
Мне не все равно. За каждого из вас.
За каждое написанное слово.
За каждый услышанный голос.
Штиль снаружи - единственное, что удалось сберечь.
Внутри - все так же бушуют волны.
Я не готова сдаваться. Иначе, начинает сдаваться все вокруг.
