This was the second most important thing I have ever done in my life.
I have spent a large part of my adult life trying to heal the pain that has at times has been paralyzing and has not allowed to me to emotionally mature in some areas. I have tried counseling and psychiatry. I did 2 things this weekend that have changed my life. I verified that the boundaries I set with my mother and the forgiveness I gave her prior to the boot camp have released the chains in that area of my life. I also forgave myself. I have written volumes of journals that are actually my conversations with God as well as prayer and studying scripture. Those are all necessary but the boot camp gave me the tools that brought it all together for me.
I have periods in my life where my heart was wide open and my relationship with Christ was tight. I had surrendered my will to His and those were the only periods I experience TRUE peace and joy. However, even during those periods I was unable to totally forgive myself. The Holy Spirit was using me to do the Lord’s work. I slowly allowed a wedge to be driven in that relationship and couldn?t find the way back. The boot camp reminded me that I am at my strongest when I am at my weakest.
