Still Juicy and Sweet

Christine is on a roll; her third installment in the series on understanding the heart-led way discusses gates and filters in our human perception. I would reinforce her statement that such things are simply a part of us, but that we are far better off being more aware of them.

On a related note, I can testify that one of the nastiest problems I carried around for years was a huge load of emotional wounds. I was born highly sensitive to human vibes of that sort and easily hurt. Unfortunately, I grew up in a family and subculture that made it a sin to be sensitive like that, so I got no good training on how to turn it into a talent.

It was part of what pushed me near suicide repeatedly until I was near forty years old. There were a lot of things that worked toward my healing, but I assure you that discovering the heart-led way was rather like the crescendo of the symphony that made life worth living, even while I’m quite eager to go be with my Savior. I knew Him as my Savior long before that (age 9) but I could never hear His voice until I knew to listen with my heart.

    You sound like the same thing I went through for way too many years. You father’s favorite complaint to me was” you need to change you are too sensitive.” I spent many days thinking of suicide. I wish I could have had the wisdom to help you and myself both. I still am far too sensitive but I can’t help it. That is why it takes very little for me to get really upset at Doug. He has a really cruel tongue at times.. I have good days and bad days. I sometimes wish I could be single but then I know that I need to be with someone. I too wish some days that God would take me on home. I have to keep telling myself that with God’s help nothing can hurt me.
