Sometimes when I was a kid I’d get verbal abused and picked on.

Now that I’m older I can reflect on my life’s journey and what has brought me more happiness since my first successes in my early 30s to now. I had been picked on so much as a child and it hurt me a lot. I had to have a good cry and reevaluate my life and my walk with God.  I had a spiritual experience one day. I felt the peace of God wash right over me giving healing to my soul and spirit. I was sure but I had doubts that God is good and God is also for me not against me. I had to start praying to God and giving God the praise and glory for how far God has brought me in my life’s journey to now. I’m 39 years old now. I pray and I am going to just get my bible and read my bible and turn everything over to God. I will pray every morning from now on and start my day reading my Bible and my Hebrew book of psalms. I love poetry especially the psalms. A friend who knew I was a poet encouraged me to read the psalms. I thought what an awesome idea reading the psalms and I’m a poet too.
