I know firsthand what it’s like to be captive to pain. Growing up, I often felt rejected and unloved by some who were supposed to love me. In effort to gain their love and approval, I became a classic “people-pleaser.” This approach to life never worked to give me the acceptance that I thought I so desperately needed. Instead, it seemed to deepen the pain and perceived need.
Now I can say that I’m finally free, thanks to God’s loving deliverance! He taught me how to turn from my quest to please others toward a life that’s free and exciting in Him.
Whatever the specific source of pain, I’ve been serving God by helping many others break free.
