2. I am not bitter. I believe I have gotten through that stage a long time ago. I feel healed in that regards, and can look objectively back at the things that happened to me…and with thankfulness. Because I believe Romans 8:28 is true, and am beginning to see the fruit of God’s promise in my life.
So while I went through a really rough time emotionally and still have a few bouts here and there, I can honestly say, “Thank You Lord”…because I can see that I would not be the person I am today (and a better one at that) if it had not been these things that happened in my life.
But I will sometimes write with passion. As there are others out there going through something similar. I hate what lies do to people when they are in the middle of a trial in life. If I had known that there were others out there like me, in the critical parts of my “story”, I would have been so encouraged!
3. I will write in hopes that someone maybe encouraged through my experiences. I am not perfect. I am not a know-it-all, (though at one time, I did believe I knew most of it) and most of what I write comes through personal experience, and finding what I believe is the truth according to the Word of God. I will try to write as objectively as I can, but also know that I am human, and will tend to throw in a bit of emotion. 😉
4. I will write to heal. I have come a long way from where I was. Feeling like I was raped in my innermost soul, to feeling free and thankful, and unbitter. But there are still things that need to be dealt with…and I find that there is a burning desire inside of me to write. I process things and issues through writing it out. Issues seem to become more clear and more easily dealt with, when I write them out, and mull them over.
