Just hours away from being abortedA child of divorceTwice adoptedThree different last names by the age of 16Married the love of my life who – 48 years later – promised me, "Your life will be hell!"4 times displaced from my homeEmotionally abusedA casualty in the war of divorce Left heavily in debt, with little resources and a bad credit ratingCan anything good come from such a life?!? Absolutely, if God is in it.When I was 12, I met Jesus. That began a love affair that still continues to grow. Family interference started two years later with restrictions as to when and if I could go to church. During those disappointing, tough teen years, I found two Scriptures that became my solid foundation:1 John 3 – reinforced my identity and revealed my characteristics as God’s child. Sadly, so many people today live in spiritual poverty because they don’t know who they are. But that’s another book. Ephesians 4:11 – became my life verse. It taught me that contentment wasn’t dependent on where I was or what I had. It gave me a mindset based on God. He was in control of my life. Wherever He placed me and whatever my circumstances were, I was there for a purpose – a purpose that would glorify Him and benefit me. So, what then is God’s take on forgiveness? The answer is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. When we meet His conditions, God promised to forgive our sins and heal our land. To me, ‘land’ means what farmers need to produce their crops. I’m not a farmer. What, then, is my land that God will heal? What are my crops?Land in the physical brings forth fruit. So it is in the spiritual. My very existence is the land that God heals. When I am forgiven, I am in a position to receive healing from the wounds caused by those sins – whether my sins or other people’s. As that healing takes place, my capacity to produce spiritual fruit (Galatians 5:22, 23) increases. Unfortunately, people – like my husband – stop at the ‘forgiveness’ step. Never receiving God’s healing leaves the soil of their lives uncultivated. Journey with me through these pages. Listen to a dialogue between God and his child as He shares insights of His actions.
