My mother passed away when I was eight years old.
After her death, I carried around the baggage of rejection, fear, anxiety
and depression. Later, after marriage, negative self talk, and thoughts
God had gifted me with a strong mind and a learning spirit. So for years, I was able to look courageous and successful on the outside while suffering emotional pain on the inside.
Soon the pain of my emotional wounds began to get the best of me. My job was no longer fulfilling, I became anemic, I felt my family didn't love me, I thought everyone was out to get me and I was unable to keep up with the demands of family and corporate life. It was as if a hornet's nest was built in my mind and was feasting on my thoughts. I sensed in my spirit that God was telling me that I needed to take a TIMEOUT. I sought God and he lead me to Whole Person counseling.
Dr. Frasure showed me how to put my identity in Christ and cleanse my emotional wounds.
I experienced a sense of peace.
I have more confidence.
I have God's word to now assure me.
I can now step back into my life and glorify God, without the emotional baggage.
