Wow, where did the month of October go? First of all, I just want to say thank you to all the new readers and followers of my blog. It means a lot to me to know that the work the Lord Jesus has done in my life can be used to help others. Domestic Violence is a tough topic and I hope that the three posts that I wrote from the perspective of a victim trying to find her way was helpful to give insight into the mind of an abused woman. If you haven’t read those entries you can find them at the links below:

Now the moment that I have been excited to announce is here! On October 1st I ran a giveaway contest asking for comments to let me know what topic you would like to see here. I got some great responses so in the future I will be writing on the following topics:
Accountability, Procrastination, Agape love, Thoughts, Self talk, F.E.A.R. False Evidence Appearing Real, Forgiveness (of self) and Sisterhood.
So without further ado the winner of the $25 Amazon Gift Card goes to:
Please send me a message with your email address and I will get your gift card sent to you right away. I will get busy on writing those topics as the Lord leads me. I am so excited to be challenged with these topics and cannot wait to see how the Lord will direct me.
Please watch for future contests right here at Beyond The Miry Clay!
It has been 121 days since I have written anything here. 121 days that I’ve allowed lies to stop me from doing what I know in my heart is what the Lord would have me do.
When we believe lies it can distort our reality. I was believing the lies that say “I don’t write anything worth reading.”, “Who do I think I am to tell my story? No one cares, no one wants to hear it.” I knew these were lies but somehow I believed them. The other day I heard a friend speak out a lie similar to these and at that moment I knew it was these lies holding me back and also trying to stop my friend from sharing as well. No more!
I’m crying out MAYDAY, MAYDAY! Almighty God I need Your help today! It is God who calls us to share our testimonies of the things He has done in our lives.
Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! (1 Chronicles 16:8-9 ESV)
How many times have I felt the desire to share a story here and yet I allowed lies to stop me in my tracks. Well no more! This ends today! I will say as Peter and John said to the men at the Sanhedrin when they commanded them not to teach or speak in the name of Jesus…
For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20 NKJV)
I will speak and write the things which I have seen and heard. I will tell of the greatness of Jesus who saves, delivers and sets free. I will tell my story and I pray the Holy Spirit will bring the right people to read my words and that it would help maybe just one person who is stuck in the miry clay.
I hope those of you who read this blog will forgive my absence and pray for me that I will allow the Lord to use me in writing the great things He has done in my life.
Please comment and let me know if there’s a specific topic you would like me to address here.
God bless you all!!
