    Heard Joyce on your show today…we share the pain of abuse when we were young, i also carried that pain with me through my adult years and made many mistakes not letting go of that pain….UNTIL the LORD JESUS CHRIST hit me upside my head and said, through my pastor,”why are you acting like a child? A victim? Letting other people control you in the wrong directions? Letting people have power over you? STOP.. Take the control back through me. I will take that pain upon myself if you follow me and live your life loving me and putting me first” Over time, i felt the heaviness of the world off my shoulders… and my life is happier than i ever thought possible,all because i trusted in HIM. Thank you for reading this and thank you for all you do so gently listening to those who are in pain, i listen to you every chance i get, and you help me with things i didnt even know bothered me..yesterday i became a New life giver because i believe in all of you, and i pray you will be able to help others.

    Susan, you hit ME upside the head with your thoughtful and heartfelt reply. I, too, am a regular listener and minister to folks who, for the most part, don’t feel entitled to happiness–and can’t forgive. Until they hook up with me, that is. I make it very clear that MERCY and COMPASSION are heaven-sent rites of passage for us.

    I have just started a phone group (to allow for diverse schedules and addresses) of Survivors/Thrivers. I see many abuse victims still acting like children and victims. It’s my goal to nudge them to the release one feels–as you so aptly described–turning your pain over to HIM.

    Well said, Susan. You affirmed what I know so well. the Lord’s yoke is not a heavy one, but if you trust in Him, it’s the only one you’ll ever need to pick up again.

    God bless, Sister in Christ! Stay on the path…so you can blaze a trail for others.
