“Stupid, stupid hyperactive conscience! How it gets me in trouble. How it harangues me, stifles me, keeps me from experiencing Jesus. I’m so busy recounting my losses and failures, then determining to “do better” that I miss His capability inside me. I am so capable, so in control, that I miss His power.”
“Folks may wonder why I’ve spent all this time looking back, dredging up what God sees of my story, what my eyes see. Jesus says truth sets people free. This is my way of doing that—of telling the stark truth on the page so others can be set free. .. why do I go through all this recollection? So God can renew me so I can help others find healing.”
These are quotes from Mary DeMuth’s amazing memoir, “Thin Places,” in which she opens her heart to reveal painful memories of abuse, abandonment and rejection.
