    I survived a severely abusive DV childhood with the help of Tennessee Ernie Ford hymns. I've been struggling and very distressed over a friend in another state in a DV situation with her brother. She is choosing to not get help and to pretend she is safe. I finally came to the end of myself. Sarah Young in "Jesus Calling" says we can just call out Jesus Help! when we don't know what else to pray. After tears, I started praying for a family going though a serious health crisis. My prayers turned to praise. I started to sing. I fell asleep during the chorus of "Great Is Thy Faithfulness". I got up to fix dinner and in the living room I heard KCMS play two songs I had sung. I just stopped what I was doing and said, "God you are so good". My homework in DBT this week is to report which (of the 5 senses) distress tolerance skill I used. I don't know where singing and following asleep during singing would fit into the homework. But I do know God used "Help!" and turned it into "Praise!" In the midst of my childhood I didn't see or feel God. But looking back, I couldn't have survived without His strength, and I see His handiwork and His help, especially in the darkest days. God is good! His mercies are new every morning!
