I Figured it Out

Well, here I am. 43 years old (I think. I’m not trying to hide it, I just forget a lot :). There are so many things I’ve wanted to do in my life, and one of them has been to write. But God had things He had to do and let happen first. So He could get me to a place where I could be myself. Man, I’ve really wanted that too, I just had no clue how to get there. Not being me just made everything else I wanted to do not work right, so He just held me back until I could figure it out. And what I figured out was that I thought everyone took from me the ability to be me, but really, the truth was I handed myself over. I was always free, and I freely gave me away because I felt that gave me worth. I just had to figure that out so I could take me back.

  1. Dear Subrena, Thank you so much for writing this blog. Your words and honesty have touched me in so many different ways. I see so much of me in you. You give me hope…thank you.


    • Tanya, I am so glad to hear that :). It is exactly why I wanted to begin to write a blog. There are so many of us out there who are hurting in the same ways and we need to be encouragement for one another. Beginning this week, by Friday or Saturday, I will begin blogging as a follow-up to a marriage conference that my husband and I shared at that was held at our church last weekend. It will cover topics that were shared with the women in the group separate from the men and the women have been encouraged to become a part of an ongoing “conversation” on the blog. I hope you will jump in :).
