I don't know if this will help but there's a good message by Keith Daniel here at SI titled, "Don't let the past cripple your future". I'm not at all implying this is what you're doin, but I myself just listened to it again... Maybe that might shed some light on a few things.Only Christ can heal us when we cast all our burdens and cares upon Him.
thank you , i will be sure to listen and i will keep praying for all of us.
I am very sorry for much that you have experienced and shared. Many (all) know personally about such hurts, maybe not so pilled on as you share. It is a fallen world we live in, with blind, hardened, selfish, starving people. Some just do not have, cannot come up with enough to share comfort with others, or make good decisions for themselves or others. They just are not able in very obvious ways. Most of us are not able in more subtle ways.I am praying for you. Whatever else is said, you are alive. You got enough food and shelter. Thank you God. And I am thanking God for your tender heart. and that He gives rest for the weary and how faithful He is to grow us. and that He enables you to intercede for your nieces and nephews and be flesh and blood for them, one who understands what it is to experience pain. And that He gives you wisdom and direction.You may be the only member of your family who really knows what you know about Jesus, the only one who can keep their eyes on Jesus."The eternal God [is thy] refuge, and underneath [are] the everlasting arms:" -- Now that is real support!
