I love the actor Liam Neeson. I tease my husband that they should make a third one. I could star in it. The plot would be that Liam needed me to rescue him. MY Holy Hottie didn’t agree so we dropped the subject.
I am particularly fond of the Taken movies. They remind me what a father’s love will do when a child is in danger. In that way I realize how God must feel about me. How much He wanted to protect me, have me healed from my past, and deliver me into His plans for my life to bring me hope and a future. He sent His son to redeem me from slavery. But, someone had to lift their voice so that I would know. Someone had to write the accounts and gospels. Someone had to die for me to know the truth about Jesus.
The great thing is that because He did, and because they did, I can now use my voice to set others free. I can be a real life superhero that brings the good news to the bound, broken, damned, doomed, and lost. What kind of superhero wouldn’t save the women, men, and children that are victims of the sex trafficking trade? My superpower is Love.
Check out this post over on the Exodus Road Blog. You don’t have to be Liam or Jason Bourne. You just have to be the you that you are. There is a video there. Be sure to take a look at it. Please share the blog post with those who fight for freedom, or who would. Thank you for being a light in the darkness to those God loves and adores. Just like you.
Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others. I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile. Blessings to you and yours, <3Melinda
