30 Days of Thankfulness: Days 23-25

The Lord always sends a life preserver when we need it. For day 23, I am so thankful for Mountain Life and the family I have found there. When I found them on Facebook it was truly by the grace of God. I sent Pastor Manny a message, he had me call his wife Pastor Cheryl and that was it. She found me a ride to church that Sunday from Craig and Kathleen and I continued there until I moved. The days before that, I would lay in the floor and just cry out to a God. My heart was crushed, my life was in pieces. I knew God was the only one to fix it, but I didn’t even know where to start. I don’t think anyone ever believes they will fall prey to abuse of any kind. I was disappointed in myself, embarrassed that I had allowed it to happen, there were times I begged God to just take me from this world. I felt nothing but love from the moment I entered those church doors. I will be forever grateful for the love and guidance I found there. I went from having no one in Colorado to having an entire church family, one I will cherish forever. #11.23.18

Ahhhh, those Cripple Creek Donkeys. I am so thankful for each of them. God used them to heal my heart. I can’t even tell you how many times I looked up from a bad day to see a herd coming to greet me. They were my friends when I had no one but April. Trapped in a relationship with a narcissistic man is one if the worse places to be. Who do you turn to? You can’t tell your family, you’ve shut almost everyone else out. But God. He sends a herd of donkeys that listen and brays back. Ha! Only God can do that. Day 24, I am so thankful for those donkeys. #11.24.18

Today, day 25, I am thankful for the transforming power of the Holy Ghost. As I posted earlier, I’m not the same woman I was this time last year. I still struggle with many things and my Poppa knows this. All day I have been surrounded with doves, a symbol of the Holy Spirit. It’s His reminder to me that I’m not alone, I’m not doing this alone, and everything He has promised me will come to pass. What a loving Father. He knows me so well, He sends flocks of doves to reassure His daughter His Word will come to pass. I just have to allow that life changing power to keep working through me. #11.25.18 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

  1. I also was with a narcissist for way too long. It punched a huge hole in my heart and soul and left me desperately floundering. I also was drawn to Mtn Life church when I was at my lowest. I am just beginning my journey of healing. The waters may be rough before they improve, but Jesus gives me blessed peace all the time. And the Holy Spirit is teaching me how to be more like Jesus, which makes me very happy. I ❤ that you call him Poppa. Our Poppa is so good, huh?! I miss you, but know you are in good hands! Keep those blogs coming, they make my day! Love you lots! Patti B
