Thursday Trench Truth
I remember when I finally came face to face with the reality of my own answer. It was
right after I had been taken off of work and placed on workers’ comp. I was like a lost
person wandering in an isolated foreign country wondering where I was going to land!
I was actually in counseling at the time, trying to gain coping skills for my son’s
addictions, and my therapist was Steve. He led me to a study called “Victim no More” by
Beth Moore and I’ll never forget what happened at the beginning of it; it was incredibly
pivotal in my relationship with God. As the words of the study pierced my heart and
began to peel back some layers, I broke down and I literally yelled at God, “Why did
You allow the abuse to happen? Why didn’t You make it stop?”
I received an answer, a very profound answer: “I wept every time it happened”!
We all have free will, and God will never make us love him; nor does He make bad
things happen to good people.
When we allow these truths to sink into our soul, we begin to surrender to serenity and
that anger loses its power.
Surrendered to our Loving Father,
