There was nothing like telling my mom “I am healed, Mom. I have a new brain. I don’t have this disorder, Mom,” and seeing her know just from my eyes that her daughter was her daughter again.
Like I said, Jesus has renewed Cassie. I hate the voice of deception I once had. Moreso I can’t even understand the ways of that voice. The thought of explaining its deception out loud makes me sick, and I see it for what it is. In Jesus’ timing, so that others might see only Him.
In the midst of tons of other food today (suuuuper hungry), and literally feeling like a different person (movies with some of my best friends tonight; actual 100% focus on the movie, all of them getting, “Cass you seem different”). I’m giddy, I’m laughing at things, there is so I have energy. And a complexly wonderful body that is ALREADY EQUIPPED to tell me when it’s hungry! Not designed to be instructed by constructed “rules.” It tells me itself when it wants to eat and when it’s done eating! And it’s so simple and just not whatsoever the focus of life– oh how I idolized the restriction of it, oh the pride of that deceitful way. Jesus is all my life is from, for, and through. And His Holy Spirit is so preciously loud.
I have a yummy recipe for y’all that I whipped up on the whim for a snack on my way to teach dance!
