Are you just 

Surviving?

or

Are you Thriving?

  If the urgent sidelines your important

again. and again. and again…


If you are sure that today is the day you will be calm and
respond rather than react, but then the triggers hit 
day. after day. after day…

If your weight has gone up and down 10, 20, 30+ lbs
over. and over. and over…

If you have bought and not followed through on
every planner. every system. every program…
or

you have dreams that you know are waiting for you,
but you’re stuck in the waiting…

AND

You or your mother have experienced any of the following:

  • sexual regrets, trauma or abuse
  • infertility or miscarriage
  • crisis pregnancy (overt or covert)
  • abortion (attempted or successful) or 
  • placing a child for adoption

“You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother’s womb…

You even formed every bone in my body when you created me in the secret place, carefully, skillfully shaping me from nothing to something. You saw who you created me to be before I became me! 

Before I’d ever seen the light of day, the number of days you planned for me were already recorded in your book…”
Psalm 139: 13, 15-17
(Passion Translation)

From the
Beginning of Time,

God has been
Waiting for You

God has good plans for you and those plans are meant to prosper you.  

But the enemy has come to steal, kill & destroy what is good in your life.  Throughout your life, he takes every opportunity available to offer something “better” than what God is offering you. 

In times of trauma, those offers can look irresistible.

In times of trauma, those offers can look irresistible.

Trauma.

We need a working definition of Trauma in order to understand how often we receive these offers – and how often we accept them.  

Definition of trauma from Miriam Webster Dictionary

1.  a) an injury (such as a wound) to living tissue caused by an extrinsic agent

     b) a disordered psychic or behavioural state resulting from severe mental or emotional stress or physical injury

     c) an emotional upset
// the personal trauma of an executive who is not living up to his own expectations – Karen W. Arenson

2. an agent, force, or mechanism that causes trauma

Pregnancy

is intended by God to be a beautiful experience that brings a new life into this world.  But there are so many circumstances that keep it from being as wonderful as it was intended to be when this world was created.  

Crisis Pregnancies as a result of physical health problems for Mom or Baby are easy to recognize and understand. But emotional turmoil can result in just as much trauma to Mom and to Baby.  When Dad and Mom are fighting, not together or the pregnancy was the result of sexual trauma or abuse, as the years pass, you may not recognize how the effects of the trauma are still affecting you, but if you have not intentionally done inner healing work (and often, even if you have) there is a very good chance that your body is holding onto the emotions you felt during the crisis and you have not made the connection between the symptoms you are experiencing and the root cause of those symptoms – your crisis pregnancy.  
 

Align yourself with Father God.
  
Imagine the possibilities.

Believe
as you achieve.

Embrace His perfect timing.
