Years after the abuse, I still suffered shame and lack of self-esteem. I didn’t believe that I was worthy of love and I suffered from a life-threatening eating disorder.
Counseling helped a little but I finally found my freedom in Jesus Christ. God healed my mind.
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6, KJV)
That millstone held me captive. Perhaps that is your story too. Oh friend, choose freedom in Christ. It is there and waiting for the asking. This is his promise to us.
Isaiah 61:7-Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours (NIV).
Give up your millstone. Freedom is free and waiting and available through Jesus.
Prayer- Lord God, thank you! Amen.
