Honestly it was a broken heart that led me into the arms of God. I was desperately trying to recover from a fall that at the time, felt as if it had the power to take me under. I made the decision to seek refuge in God, because I knew if I found it within myself I would not heal properly.
I spent the summer of ’18 in a season of isolation, calls went unanswered and invites were turned down. I had a conversation one night with God, with tears in my eyes I told Him to please hide me. I wasn’t well and I didn’t want to be seen in the condition I was in.
He took me under His wings and protected me as He began to repair my heart and my broken spirit. I felt overlooked, unworthy and ashamed that here I was another year broken hearted from a relationship that crumbled right in front of my eyes. I felt I was going around in circles because I was asking God yet again, to clean up the mess that had been made. But He never held it against me, He came right in picked me up, all my pieces included and carried me through. He loved me back to health.
I had been a little girl, who grew into a woman that chased after the love of men when there was a father waiting all along to love her. For the first time in my life I felt the love that I tried so hard to obtain, a love that filled every empty space in me. A love that made me feel seen, heard and important. A love that spoke to my heart and said “You are WORTHY”.
I always become emotional when I try to express just what God did for me that summer. All I know is, all it took was one touch from Him to change the direction of my life.
He took the blindfold off and for the first time I could see myself properly. It was in God’s eyes that I found me.
To date my life has never returned back to the condition it was in when He came and rescued me.
After everything I went through, it has been one of the best gifts God has given me. It’s my life’s mission to reach as many women as I can, I want every last one to see themselves through His eyes. I won’t stop until heads are lifted and crowns are fitted.
