Life; The Fight!

I am sharing this because there are way too many nuggets in here to not share.

What a wonderful story Warren gives us. One of how life can knock us down and bring us to our knees.

A testimony, if you will, of how life sucker punched him, kicked him and knocked him until finally he came face to face with the cross. Life didn’t change after that encounter…Warren did.

As I said there are so many nuggets in here but this one spoke the most to me and it just happens to be true…To know that life is best fought, with a surrendered heart!

God bless you brother!

iWrite... my love story!

Life, can sometimes come at you hard; that you think you’re in a fight, a fight for your life. I learned at an early age, how to bob and weave pretty good. Float like a butterfly, no; I wasn’t the greatest, but I knew how to hold my own… heart. Life just wouldn’t allow me to catch my breath, so I just held it all in; breathing seemed to be optional. But life still decided to hit me with a sucker punch; it knocked me to One knee. I was absolutely stunned; life should have known, I wasn’t about to stay down. So I gathered up my pride, stuck it back in my heart and said; life, is that all you have… to offer?

So I got off my knee, got back in the fight; only to continue with the same bobbing and weaving routine. I wasn’t a sucker. Yeah…

Lord, Take My Unclean Heart And Make It New

I have sinned! A lot! Just like Paul, I consider myself the worst of sinners. That's why I can't look down my nose at anyone on this planet. Looking back at some of the things I have done in my life I'm sickened... I mean, damn.... What five year old boy, in kindergarten, asks girls… Continue reading Lord, Take My Unclean Heart And Make It New

Celebrate Recovery Is For Everyone

Why do people still believe Celebrate Recovery is just for addicts? Is it because they have seen the movie Home Run? Did they go to that bathroom or something during testimony night in the film, where the main character’s sister-in-law speaks of her sexual abuse as a child? Or could it be because everyone thinks… Continue reading Celebrate Recovery Is For Everyone

What I Lost When My Husband’s Porn Addiction Won

As I was reading Cynthia’s post I was floored. I have NEVER seen loss from a spouses addiction like this before. That is why I simply had to share this with you.

As an ex porn addict this cut me deeply but at the same time this quote proves that God works all things for our good…

“What I do know now is that what was lost can be found. What was stolen can be replaced with something better, brighter and more beautiful. And amazingly, what was once mourned will be celebrated.”

Guys, share the heck out of Cynthia’s post…not mine, please. Share her story and give other women hope!

Tears in a Bottle

There have been many losses in my life created by my husband’s porn addiction and intimacy anorexia. Many things were blatantly stolen from me throughout my marriage leaving me dazed and confused. But others were a slower trickle that I didn’t even notice until the emptiness engulfed my soul.

Either way, I lost. And my husband’s addiction won. It wasn’t fair that I was an unknowing participant in a battle I knew nothing about it. I wasn’t prepared. I had no warning. I didn’t even know it was occurring. I repeatedly got knocked down, each time multiplying the losses and shattered shards of my heart. Until one day, I lay battered and crumpled on the floor. My opponent oblivious and uncaring that he and his addiction were the cause. On my knees, I cried out to Jesus for mercy and help. And then I rose unsteadily, turned around, and hobbled…

You see, I was molested when I was around 9 years old by this guy my Aunt was dating. I… Continue reading My Story About Porn Addiction
