God's Blessings in the Trial

I can say that God has truly blessed my life. How you say? Well He has kept me through many hardships, Abuse of all forms, Sickness, Self-harm, and times of true tribulation. I know we all go through trials, but each of us handles them in a different way. I handled mine in silence. I couldn’t speak out, I was afraid. I could only call out to God in prayer, and he always heard me. He may not have answered my prayers in the way I wanted, but he always gave the right answer.

As I sit and write this I must say I have been touched by God. I have a renewed sense of belonging, of acceptance, and of renewed Faith. I have been struggling in my walk. I have not understood where I was being led, what I was to do with my life, how I was supposed to go on. God has made me realize that all he wants is for me to walk in his Salvation, walk in his Love, and be the Jesus others need to see. I can just go day to day only concerned for myself, but that is not what God wants. God desires me to walk, talk, and show the Love of Jesus Christ. I need to be an example and I am sorry I have not been doing that. I have been selfish, self-centered, and not concerned with others. My eyes have been opened and now I must CHANGE!

I have known my whole life that God had a purpose, he had to have. Why you ask? Well because he has sent me through the fire and I was not consumed, he has sent me through the waters and I didn’t drown, he has been with me every step of the way. I know he was keeping me safe for a higher purpose. Why must we go through the bad, because God is wanting to test us, see how strong we are and we must have experiences and a testimony he can use to reach others. I learned early on through my Grandma and Grandpa that all you need is Jesus.

I want my life to reflect God’s grace, love, faithfulness, and devotion.

I am starting today, at this very second to repent, walk the walk of Salvation, and give a promise to God and all those I influence or may meet, that I will be all God needs me to be. I am here for support, to give guidance, and to show you love and concern.

I Thank God for his continuous blessings, safety, and love even when I didn’t deserve it.

Feeling Alone?!?

Feeling lost and alone

Always standing on my own

Needing someone to show they care

But not getting anywhere

So what do I do out in the dark

Always in the lack of light

Sun please shine so bright

And give to me precious sight

Sight to see the love that’s showed

From those who have been so bold

To admit they’re lost like, me

And willing to be comforting

A friend have I found indeed

One who also needs

Someone to hold tight their hand

So that in the dark we both might stand

Strong we comfort and show

That together you’re not alone

As we stand hand in hand

Love will spread through the land

Hello Everyone and Welcome to My Blog

I am Jamie Moore and I am first and foremost a child of God, an Heir to the Kingdom, and a Lover of Christ. I will use this format to tell of Christ and his love, but, also as a place to give help, love, and support to those who suffer with mental illness. I have PTSD, OCD, Anxiety, Depression, and I am bipolar. My desire is to help end the stigma of and to educate those unfamiliar with Mental Illness. Please know I am here for you and I will do my best to support and lend a shoulder whenever needed.

I want those who see my blog to know that it is possible to be a survivor and overcomer. It was not easy and I went through a lot of different things, but I know that I made it by the Grace of God and his Love. I believe that Jesus Christ the Messiah is a key player in my mental illness. He keeps me from harm, self or otherwise. Mental Illness is a real and serious thing. I know that I have come through all I have because of Jesus always having his hand on me. God has a plan and his Son keeps me.

My life has been riddled with abuse. I know what it is to be abused in every way possible. My abuse began at the age of 7 when I was first sexually abused by a family member and it seemed to snowball from there. Then growing up in a home where I was physically, mentally, and emotionally abused. I was picked on and bullied in school, raped, and then seduced at 17 by a 28-year-old and lived a marriage where the abuse continued. Now I must say that from my marriage came 2 beautiful children and 2 gorgeous grandchildren. I guess I went through all I did because I had been told and believed that It was what I deserved and that was all life was for me. Now let me say I gave my life to Christ at a young age, but you might ask then, how do you think Jesus kept you? Well, I think that all I went through God allowed because he needed someone strong enough to first withstand it and then someone who would learn from it and ultimately use those things to help others.

Was it fair? NO. Was it right? NO. Was it necessary? YES. God was molding and prepping me for the life I now have and the path I am fixing to take.

I was a nervous little girl who took nerve pills, because she threw up every morning before school. I was a teenager who kept to herself and didn’t socialize. In all this the one constant was my faith in God and the foundation I was on to go forward. I thank God for my grandparents who took me to church and helped lay my foundation. My parents didn’t go to church, so I sought out a church to go to on my own. I knew that one day my life would make sense and that God would reveal his plan, but I had to keep going. I eventually was diagnosed with several mental disorders and started on the road to recovery. I still deal with things and have days where I am depressed or anxious, but I know God has my back.

Now I start the next chapter of my life. I am beginning this blog, researching ways to start a community outreach, and offer my love, support and understanding to others who are on the path that I have already walked. I want to be the Jesus that people need to see and know so that they too can come to understand and feel their worth and faith. How is this going to work, well I am not sure, but I know that God is the pilot and am I going where he leads.

I am signing off and will return soon. I am not sure how I will format my blog, but I will be only an email away. My contact info is above under Contact. Please let me know your opinion and suggestions.

With all of God’s Blessing,

Jamie ❤

Welcome, my desire is that something I post will make a difference in your life. I don’t claim to know everything, but I do have experience and a life that has been riddled with abuse and pain.

Be Blessed and may God’s gracious and forgiving Love be yours daily.
