I awoke early this morning,my first daily pratice,is prayer and devotions to the Lord.Light a candle as a pray vigil,for many situations of betrayal,happening all over the world today.The scripture passage,in (John 18-25 NIV) How Jesus is telling his disciples of the up coming betrayal.He metioning that one of them will betray him,Simon was asking Lord,who will it be.This passage brought so many instances in my days of youth.When the ultimate betrayal,would come upon my pure nature.My family always had large,family dinners each week,and always on the holidays.Little did I know that four men,in my family would be the ones,to take away my percious dignity.This was a long healing process for me for many years.I was just this little ball of light,happily going about my adventures,of my youth.I was withdrawn and quite for so many years,I felt like the whole world crashed all around me.

I went through all of the stages,of soul grief,anger,and rebellion,it has taken longer to develope trust in others.This process of healing went on for a number of years.About fourteen years ago,I discovered there a serious liver condition.If I was going to be around for any length of time.I would have to find forgiveness,in my heart towards theses me that tresspassed on my soul being.I know this wasn't my fault that this occured in my youth.This is wide spread problem,in our society today.I have survived this broken trust,and ultimate betrayal.Through the compassionate heart,of Jesus Christ who binded up my wounded heart and soul.And shows me the path of decernment,and how to choose people who will have a firm foundation in thier lives walking with the Lord.

Today two of these men have found the Lord,one has sinced passed away.The other one is contemplating following the Lord.Through my diligence,in long hours of prayer and reverence to the Lord.My life has been restored,my health is improving,my little light within is shining brighter than before.This ultimate life betrayal,has not kept me from reuniting with my heavenly father.I will pray daily for all who are in the midst,heart and soul,and thier lifes betrayal.Blessing to you all,may the Lord's heavenly light sun upon us all daily.
