Up And Running

April 28, 2013

WOO HOO!!! We fixed our problem and are finally back in action! Funny, but somehow our site was given this special unatainable code to allow access to post or do anything on our site that neither Kelly nor I had activated. We felt like such computer wimps, and after many tech support emails and lots of head scratching, we finally fixed the issue. Phew!

So…since you missed both of Kelly’s amazing posts meant to wrap up our month of studying the Proverbs 31 woman, we will be using this week to play catch up and post them for you. Technically half the week is in April any way, so we can fudge a little, right? πŸ˜‰

As for May… as promised we will be addressing the topic of self-harm through the eyes and words of some trusted women who have walked that path themselves. Unfortunately, Renee Yohe with TWLOHA had to back out of writing for us, so we will fill in her gaps with hopefully some other bloggers and materials for you to read. But our dear friend Jenna who posted for us in September will be back writing about her experience with self-harm, and you surely don’t want to miss that.

We love you girls. Thanks for sticking with us, and we are anxious and excited to move into some new topics and discussions with you. Again, if you have a topic idea or scripture passage that we have not covered, email us with the subject “Topic Suggestion” and we will take a look and hopefully try to address it for you at some point.

Love you!

Heather and Kelly

    The next month will be a blessing. We all have ways of dealing with emotions. Cutting just happened to be mine for the longest time. It was a way of turning my emotional pain into physical pain…validating that I had a reason to feel the way that I did.

    I just celebrated my one year free from cutting, and I know that I still need to work on better handling emotions. I’ve been pouring into music more and more. I’ve found that for me, music is a way to express my emotions and turn what I’m feeling into beauty.

    There are so many others out there right now who are caught up in the cycle of self-injury. It is a vicious and painful cycle. I still have days where I struggle very hard with wanting to be able to cut again and take the easy way out of feeling my pain.

    If there is any one reading this right now, know that you are loved so much. The cycle can end. Redemption will win.

    I liken my recovery to a puzzle. I have a variety of pieces that were used to help me along my journey. A huge piece was my friend Aaron. A very large piece was Tenth Avenue North. Heather and Kelly, you two were also a piece in the puzzle.

    In all, putting all of the pieces together, it has pointed towards a more complete picture of who God is and of who he wants me to be.

    I’m so grateful for everyone that God has put into my life to help me break the cycle. I could not have done it alone.

    Also, Heather, I’m now in very early recovery for my eating disorder. In terms of puzzle pieces, you were the largest piece there. I would have never gone back to therapy if it were not for you.

    You ladies are changing lives. I’m so glad that God has equipped you for this role. We may on our own be completely inadequate, but God very much equips us to do things far greater than ourselves.

      One of the greatest things ever said to me was by my counselor… You are enough. Right now. You are enough. God doesn’t need you to do anything. Over the years he and I spent together working through my junk he repeated that often. One day I started repeating it myself. Somehow, through a power only God can provide, I started believing it for myself. I am enough. Right now. I am enough.

      I’ve been free of cutting for nearly 20 years. Not only is God ABLE to heal us, He WANTS to heal us. You are enough. Right now. As He walks you through healing. You are ENOUGH. He is in the process, not just the end result. I’m praying for you.

    Girls seeking to fulfill Proverbs 31 are usually the last to achieve it. Those seeking to be fulfilled by Jesus will be first to achieve it.
