I received some thank you messages this week for helping some people with life crises at different times. I am humbled by being able to help sometimes in the darkest hours of someone's life. I'm not an expert from having studied anything in the nature of social work or psychiatry, but I have my own experiences where I was in the deep, dark valleys of life. I remember asking God to show me what it is He wants me to learn. By asking this, it took some of the pain of what I was going through away. My focus was more on my lessons, all of the things that I believe God wanted to teach me. It is from having an open mind and heart to learning from painful experiences that I've been able to help others.
Many times I will tell God all of the things that I've learned or am learning, not because He doesn't know. I found by saying it out aloud, it confirmed how much I have learned!
I am now finding by speaking about the secret pains, sins and thoughts others feel free to share the same and begin to heal. Opening up about things that caused me shame has been one of the biggest blessings to myself and others.
Tomorrow, Saturday November 20th at 2 pm EST I am taking on a deep topic, suicide. I have had my own experiences of suicide in my family and will speak about this. My guest speaker will speak about his attempt. I have a huge heart of gratitude for him for speaking about his experience. I am also very grateful for all of the people who have joined my Zoom sessions to share their experiences whole heartedly! I hope this segment blesses you, enlightens you and helps you to be of service to someone who can use more love in their lives when they are not seeing their true value.
