When I was in junior high somehow I gained possession of this Christian fiction book about staying pure for marriage. I believe I bought it at a book store or Walmart or something. This book really impacted me as an adolescent. God used that book to minister to me at a very young age about true love and the proper place and time for intimacy. God loved me so much more than I understood then and even more than I am trying to understand now.
I did a Google search and I believe this is the book that I am talking about. Some other girls in my class would see me always reading this book every time I had a chance to open it back up. One girl took notice and was interested enough to ask to borrow my book. She never returned it. I know she was was blessed in some way. God reminded me of how much I enjoyed this book today. Hallelujah! God truly used this book to shape my own life at a very young age.

God is performing supernatural inner healing on my soul around the clock (more to come on that in the future with an updated testimony). He’s been dealing with the ACTUAL SOUL itself through the reliving of trauma for rapid integration as He’s re-knitting me together like He did in my mother’s womb the first time. I’m finally at a place now where God is dealing with the deepest inner healing aspects of forgiveness, strongholds, faulty belief systems, and sonship. God really wants His People to KNOW WHO WE ARE.
Praise God! He wants to reach the youth in the world, but we are His Hands and Feet. Are we willing vessels?

I have really enjoyed The David Series by Pastor Paul Daugherty at Victory Church out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was searching for messages about father wounds one night on YouTube and this was what I watched. It led me to watch the rest of The David Series, which was amazing.

Statistics around the world show that the majority of prisons, rehab centers, & homeless shelters are packed full with the majority of those who grew up with a FATHER WOUND. Under the surface of people’s chosen paths of self-destructive behavior lies a wound of unresolved pain from their father or absence of father. David knew how to be a PUBLIC SUCCESS as the King but often had moments of being a PRIVATE FAILURE as a father. Through this message, David discovers again that God’s love never stops even when he misses it as a father. We also learn in this message that there are no perfect fathers on earth, but there is a PERFECT FATHER in HEAVEN where we can find true healing in our hearts. I pray this message confronts you with the truth of God’s healing power to move forward in forgiveness knowing you have the Perfect Good Father in Heaven ready to help you in every way. QUOTES FROM THIS MESSAGE “Dad’s, do your best, TRUST God for the rest.” – Paul Daugherty “You can have VICTORY through the humble approach of forgiveness.” – Paul Daugherty “GOD does His healing through people.” – Paul Daugherty “Jesus adopted EVERYONE into His family to become the FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS.” – Paul Daugherty “GOD is not looking for perfect Dad’s, HE’s looking for present ones.” – Paul Daugherty “There are no PERFECT fathers on earth, but there is a perfect father in HEAVEN.” – Paul Daugherty SCRIPTURE 2 Samuel 18:6-9 https://youtu.be/C-gZsBTGEZI?t=152
