Our Presence and Purpose is Powerful!

Our Presence and Purpose is Powerful!

1 John 4:7

When we love one another, we remember we are not fighting for just ourselves, but we are fighting for humanity that the Word calls for in 1 John 4:7.

Did you know that, according to one Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report, which surveyed adults across the U.S. in late June of 2020, 31% of respondents reported some form of mental health care symptoms and are in need of proper mental health treatment?

And with the largest mental health institution in the United States being our prison system, the sobering number of unmet mental health needs is heartbreaking.

The beloveds that Blameless and Forever Free Ministries pours into may be imprisoned and/or recently released from state prison, but the connective tissue of true rehabilitation is in the transforming of one’s mind requiring relational community.

Every individual who has been incarcerated has a great need for appropriate mental health care treatment both during their incarceration and once released back into community.

Let’s face it, if you’ve committed a crime, there’s trauma behind it.

And to love one another, forgiveness is necessary (not negating the crime) along with meeting them right where they are at developmentally.

Building healthy individuals and families should be our number one priority so we have a fighting chance at safer communities and developing healthy generations.  

Future generations, meaning YOUR children and your children’s children, are being formed this very moment and what those little eyes see and hear now matters.

Until next time…

Blameless and Forever Free Ministries and Chaplain Tammy believes that love softens traumatic memories. Memories of being loved that we can access or create help us tolerate suffering. It all comes down to love. Happy Valentine’s Day!

It All Comes Down To Love…

It All Comes Down To Love!

So this is my command: Love each other deeply, as much as I have loved you. For the greatest love of all is a love that sacrifices all. And this great love is demonstrated when a person sacrifices his life for his friends.

God Is Love

Those who are loved by God, let His love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of Him. The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. The light of God’s love shined within us when He sent his matchless Son into the world so that we might live through Him (1 John 4:7-9).

This is love: He loved us long before we loved Him. it was His love, not ours. He proved it by sending His Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins.

Delightfully loved ones, if He loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life!

LOVE softens traumatic memories. Memories of being loved that we can access or create help us tolerate suffering.

It all comes down to love!

For all my friends who are overcoming being traumatized; there is no shame in being traumatized. God’s Love is so amazing, we need to focus on giving ourselves credit for being resilient enough to survive our adverse experiences along with surviving our difficult childhoods.

Our hidden wounds are healing now that we have the courage to address them with understanding, compassion and skill.

Cheers to viewing this suffering as a challenging experience that called us to acquire new inner strengths and coping skills. That’s part of the healing process in being the courageous, transitional person in our family tree that breaks the cycle of suffering. Hallelujah!

Daughters raised with a father’s love are more likely to feel worthy of love, and less likely to seek love in unhealthy ways.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Jesus wants to know, “Will you be mine?”

Until next time…
