My Redemption

  In the Bible, in the book of Isaiah it says, “For I have redeemed you. I have called you by name. You are mine.” One of the definitions of the word “Redeemed” is to fulfill or carry out a promise. God promises to work all things together for the good of those who love Him. 

Growing up and struggling with an abusive, abandonment, rejection, depression, anxiety and many other severe issues drove me to believe my life had no value and led me to attempt suicide. The majority of my life up till now was full of pain, sadness and brokenness.

For all the times I asked God why and for all the tears I cried because I could never see how He could make something good of my life; He finally brought me here…To this place of fulfillment, to this time of redemption in my life.

I finally understand that He had a bigger plan, to use my story and help other people through their pain. He brought me to a place where I see all the beauty in who my experiences shaped me into. I see all the cracks that let the light in. 

I see the calling He has given me as a person, as a mother and as a writer, to share my heart and my life with y’all and I will happily tell anyone how God turned me into The Redeemed Mama.

I am not afraid. I was born to do this…
