Jlissa's Journey

I don't know how to describe this blog. At first I didn't want to write a blog, because I enjoy my privacy too much. But I'm on a journey to get closer to God and to live my life authentically. And since this is a positive environment, I decided to just let it all out. Or as mush as I can.

  1. Action Cures Fear

    Today has been an amazing day. It started off shaky, I didn't feel like working so I started off reading a book called " The Magic Of Thinking Big." And it was absolutely the best thing I could have done today.

    I was having doubts about moving abroad. I still don't know what country I want to live in. And how can I just leave my husband to live in another country. And....... I just had a million reasons why I couldn't do it.

  2. I can feel my dream happening!!

    This week has been good. Today I received unexpected money in the mail. And received another brand new printer. And welcomed someone else into my home.

    And today I began thinking about all the funny things happening to me. When I started my first fast I wanted to be left alone. I wanted quiet time to pray to God, and work on my issues. A couple days after starting it, an acquaintance needed a place to stay.

    Now I started my 2nd fast, and another person needed a place ...

    I finished my first fast. It definitely was productive. It helped me to clear my head, and gave me the ability to recognize and clearly communicate what I'm feeling.

And being able to express my true feelings, solved the communication problems I was having with my husband.

    This Monday, I'm going on a longer fast. My goal is 30- 40 days. I want to tackle a bigger ...

  4. My Journey To Now Part 2

    And I clearly heard God say----" That is Your husband." And this really depressed me. For days I kept asking why.

    I had recorded the sermons, and I kept replaying them. And listening to new sermons. And I learned about God. I used to read the bible when I was younger. I knew and loved the stories. But once I grew up I stopped believing. Because I thought God was mean, and angry, and revengeful. And I didn't want to believe in a God that was like that.

  5. My journey to Now

    A series of sermons about marriage brought me back to God. Last year all I wanted was a divorce. I thought about it hourly. I dreamed about being in the courtroom. I imagined what it would feel like to be free. I only wanted to talk to my husband, if it was about divorce. Divorce was the promised land for me.

    Then one day I happened to catch a minister on t.v speaking about marriage. In 5 sermons, he spoke about the hardships his marriage had been through. He spoke about hating
