My Heart: My Bruises and My Scars

It has been an eventful past 5 years with Jesus. Jesus has reveal my heart’s bruises and scars through the Celebrate Recovery program.  My intention was to help my husband begin the ministry within our church.  Little did I know, Jesus would reveal the brokenness that I hid from myself and the world!

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 20 years, have a successful career as a scientist (microbiologist) and raised a child who is currently attending her first year of college. From the outside looking in, I have a wonderful life.

Most people don’t know that I have carried the bruises and scars of being molested as a child, raped as a young woman and married to an alcoholic for twelve years.  Needless to say, I have some major trust issues.

Jesus has patiently and lovingly brought out each of these past situations for me to deal with.  I couldn’t have done this on my own.  I am so grateful for My Savior and the loving Celebrate Recovery family He has blessed me with.

I thought that recovery was for the chemically dependent but I found that could be further from the truth.  Recovery is for everyone that can’t navigate this life on their own.  With the tools from Celebrate Recovery and the love of Jesus, we can’t lose!
