Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. II Corinthians 7:9‭-‬10 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/2co.7.9-10.NKJV

I was reading a daily devotional at my Youversion.

Joyce was sharing about her negative experience with Christian counseling.

I have heard similar stories from Beth Moore, and my almost mominlaw lady.

I am thinking about this with Jesus. Asking Him for wisdom. It says ask freely for wisdom and He gives it without favoritism or stinginess in the book of James, right?

You know what I think?

I think that my own scary-hurtful experiences with counseling or Bible School or churches were the leading of God 🙏 too. (Not just the wonderfulwarmfuzzylifechanging experiences with those things.)

Turn my face to the 🌞

So instead of vowing never to trust a Bible school\counselor\church\friend again… I’m gonna turn it around. Reframe it. Reboot my ❤️.

Thank you God. You know about religious abuse and meeting the enemy where you expected to meet a safe friend. People are often messed up. Including me. No one gets to be immune to that. No one.

Except You. I Love You. I trust YOU to be the one thing that is right in my crazy, upside-down world.
