Dare to Trust
What is trust and why is it so hard to give it? 🤔
Trust is one gift I had as a child. I grew up a “Carne Kid” so being around strangers was common. In 1974, at 2 years of age, you would find me roaming the lots as we traveled from town to town. (Carnival lots are not the same now, but we were all just a big family.) My mom ran the duck pond and never worried about me.
It wasn’t until we left that life, and she remarried that things changed for me. At 12, my stepfather became different toward me. Instead of being my “Bobbarino” as I had called him when I was little, he became my personal nightmare. 😲
Heavily involved in drugs and satanic influence, he became obsessed with me. By the grace of God, he didn’t sexually abuse me, but he was physically abusive. He would often berate me telling me I’d never amount to anything, and I believed him. It took a while before Momma could get away from him and God protected me from the evil we lived with. 😱
My stepfather said I’d never graduate from high school, I’d have a dozen kids, and other things I can’t think of right now. But none of the things he prophesied over me came true. So, the question is why do these lies still linger? 😭
Over 30 years later, the lies of the enemy still echo in my ears.
Can you relate?
The reason is simple. These things that happened in your life — my life— were designed to destroy us. 🎤
“We know ALL things work together for good for those who love the Lord AND are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). 🙏💪
The enemy wants to paralyze us and destroy the hope within. He wants us lost and unable to share the love of Christ. We cannot let him win! Jesus already won this battle. Satan has NO control unless we give it to him.
We have a purpose and it is time to stop allowing fear, doubt, and mistrust to consume us. We have to stop living in fear! 🥰😘
