Welcome to Prayers and Promises
My name is Diana, and I’d like to welcome you here. I appreciate you stopping by today. I am a Faith Builder in the Kingdom. I usually write about what is on my heart for the day. My posts might include thoughts on Spirituality, Health, Healing, and Recovery from Depression and Domestic Violence.
Part of Diana’s Story:
“I have lived in abuse, years upon years, relationship upon relationship. I have been married – more than once, and I have been divorced – more than once- to abusive men. I have been to the shelters, time and again. I have had restraining orders, had them broken, and called the police again. I have been to court more times that I can count. I have fought for my children and their rights for child support. I have lived through suicide attempts and thank you Lord, I did not succeed. I have been to the Mental Health Ward – more than once. I have gone to the counselors, taken the “happy pills” and lived in ‘la-la land” for months at a time. I have been treated for depression and at one time in my life , I did not get out of bed for 6 months.
I have laughed, I have cried, I have believed, and I have doubted. But through it all, God has been faithful. He has made a way for me and my children where there was no way. He has protected me and my children supernaturally, more than once. He has provided for us faithfully – oh the stories I could tell! He has restored my peace of mind. I am no longer taking any ‘happy pills’! I do not hear “the voices” in my head that used to scream things at me, or whisper and laugh at me. I do not live in the land of shame and guilt anymore, I have changed addresses!
I am not that same person. I have lived free from fear and abuse for the last 12 years, and today I can say, because of Christ – I am free! Thank you Jesus! A few years back God even blessed me with a Godly husband, one who encourages and supports me . We play praise music together every week at Church! It is rather healthy I have to say, and I am forever grateful. But I had to learn what healthy relationships were. And I had to learn to establish boundaries in my life.
Today, I do not live in fear. Today I am not a victim of abuse, I am a beloved daughter of the King. I am life that God touched, rescued, and changed. I know that God exists, He saved my soul from the pit, He protected me and my children, and I know He will do it for you too!”
