    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!

Quarter by quarter, interception by interception, our doubt was growing. My son Hayden even said, “It’s going take a miracle.” I had gotten to the point where I Read More
