From Bondage to Freedom

My name is Cassie. I will soon be 45 years young. My life is proof positive that God exists. How do I know that? Because I have had enough big bangs and somethingsoutofnothings occur in my life to make me a downright expert on the subject! Throughout many portions of my life, it has not been God’s existence that I questioned. It was His sanity. Because He has allowed me to go through so many hair-raising and heartbreaking things that at times I was almost convinced that He was crazy. I found instead that He wasn’t crazy at all…simply outrageous and incredibly wise. This blog is all about freedom. Freedom from what, you ask? I’ll give you the short list

• Severe depression• Severe anxiety • Severe chronic pain (Five years) • CFS (Four years) • Rape • Child abuse • Molestation (from age 7 until I was 16) • Beatings • Homelessness (2 years) • Major panic and anxiety attacks • Psychiatric hospitalizations (6 in a four year span) • Job loss • Loss of all personal possessions (several times) • Loss of husband • Loss of home • Son taken away from me by my father when he was 10 • Eating disorder And that’s just the short list.

Only God—the ONLY God—could have delivered me from so many tragedies and bring me through into a land of victory, peace, and joy. So, you can argue about the existence of God and the fickleness of fate and that there is no purpose nor meaning to anything that happens in our lives. But my very life proves that there is not only meaning to suffering and hardship, but glory involved in those very things.

In this blog, I will share my struggles, my fears, my doubts, my anger against God and the fates, and the absolute faithfulness and trustworthiness of the God (my Father) Who loves me, believes me, and has great things in store for me and for you. For through my sufferings and struggles, you, too, will find that your life has great meaning and worth and that your life is far from over.

The best for you is yet to come. All you have to do is believe. The greatest miracle to me, however, is that, even when you do not find it in you to believe because of all that you have been through, that God is there to encourage you and love you to the place where you will be able to—like me—to be able to say that God is not only good, but the most loving Father and God that could ever be imagined.

I invite you to join me on this journey from bondage into great freedom and liberty. And if in the end, you still do not believe, I guarantee you that you will at least be curious and have to question your own doubts and beliefs. And that is the beginning of freedom for YOU.

This blog is going to be part commentary, part editorial, part autobiographical, and interspersed with my thoughts and insights about God, His universe, His people, and the world at large. There’s no telling WHAT I may be posting, so don’t miss a post!

      I have been researching God my whole life and I have a pretty good idea of Who He is and what He is like. My life is absolute proof that God exists… because only God could have set me free from all that He has an my liberty grows greater every day.
      Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and to comment. I appreciate both. Your thoughts and feelings are important to me. Cassie

        Let me add that I have a personal relationship with God and His Son Jesus Christ. God has healed my body from severe chronic pain that lasted for five years. He has healed me from CFS, which had me imprisoned within my body for four years. And He has delievered me from all of my fears. I come from a life of great suffering. God has used my suffering to help others and He has told me to share my life with others so that they, too, can have hope and healing and freedom in Him. I pray that you will experience the freedom and the personal knowledge of the One Who loved you so muuch that He sent His Son to die for you and set you free. Jesus is on His way back much sooner than people believe or think. My message is one of hope, encouragement, and also a reminder to prepare your heart for the returning of our Lord. God bless you.

      I am so glad that God has been there for you, just as He has and still is here for me. I am sorry for all that you have suffered, but it is what has made you the amazing person that you are today and preparing you to help others who have been throgh similar difficulties as you.
      I’m so glad that you have shared your heart. It is precious, both to God and to me. God bless you and keep on holding onto His Hand. He’s got you!
