"I got tired of hearing how I was a sinner and a bastard and how I was going to go to hell and die. I was seeking my place in the world." Step 2 showed me but I wasn't a lost cause and that I could be restored!"
We have been told that in order for us to live powerful and successful lives, we must be able to manage. Manage jobs, manage a house hold, manage responsibility. They forgot to teach us and we forgot to learn how to manage ourselves.
In this Episode my desire is give you my listeners some insight into who I am as a counselor as well as the foundational background of why this podcast is essential. I had periods in my life where I felt lost, wanted to commit suicide, was told many times to get my head out of the clouds, I suffered from (low) self-esteem and self-worth issues, sexual abuse, and self-abuse. But this time felt different. It felt like God was giving me another chance to get this thing called life right. Roman 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Everything I had experience along the way was going to be used for good. I realized that I had been strategically called according to God’s purpose. I also realized as I was going through, I was coming to. I was going through these experiences and coming to know the immeasurable gifts that God had place inside of me. So let me introduce myself.
