Jeremiah 29_11  

My life has changed so much since being at the Refuge for Women. When I first came in I was so hurt, so ashamed, and so broken.  For the longest time I thought I was doomed to live the same life.  I have always known, I always knew there was something missing, I just didn’t know what it was! In October 2012 I finally found what I was missing, and that was God!  Ever since that day I have never been the same, Thank you Jesus!  He has changed me from the inside out, I have learned about and felt God’s love and there is nothing like that feeling.  I have learned that despite the heart ache I have had over the choices I have made, it’s never too late for Him to sculpt me into something beautiful! Even though I have had to walk through a lot of pain and had to leave everything that I have known behind to come here, there is a reason.  It has been swallowed by grace, and I do not want to miss what He has for me, believing there is something worth going back for.  So I let it go!  The Lord has told me to and it’s time to walk.  There is nothing compared to the freedom that I have found in Christ Jesus!
