Graceful Perseverance: The Spirit Never Forgets!

Posted April 6th, 2014 @ 08:04pm

The Spirit Never Forgets!

04/07/2014 . 7:00 am . Debra Pauli

I woke up this morning and realized the world is full of hurt and pain for so many people. We live in a world of vulnerable little ones who are being raised by people who claim to love them, and teenagers who are lost and misdirected, who struggle to find their way. There are millions of adults who smile through their pain everyday. But the truth is, the spirit cannot be camoflaged with a broken smile. If we truly knew or felt someone elses pain, would we still judge them? Men and women of this world are held hostage to their pain. They have been taught and they have learned to suffer silenly, so as to not let the rest of the world see their deep seeded pain that someone else instilled in them. When will the storm clear? When will there be a break in the clouds so the sun can bring light to such a painful subject. When will light overcome the dark skies of our pain and suffering. When will love come for the lost and hurting souls.

In my 52 years, I still wonder how and why darkness hasn't been thrown into the deepest, darkest parts of the sea to never return. How long must this go on before we can experience  "Heaven on earth." How can any of us turn this around and bring light to the lives of our children and equally for the adults who continue generation after generation to fall victims too only repeat this horrific darkness because they know no other way.

So I cry out to the Heavens, “God, why don’t you do something?” Why don't you, at the blink of an eye, heal the broken and renew their spirits through your divine love? Why must there be suffering? I'm just trying to make sense of all of this. Could it be that the more we experience fear and pain, disappointments, challenges, set backs and loss the more we turn to you because we have hit rock bottom and there is no other way but up? Is it that the failing outcome of our life experiences is when we realize we need you? Is it that our lessons make us stronger? Are you strengthening our spirit? Then what can stand against us, right?

I cannot bear the thought of another child brutally beaten, many beaten beyond one more breath. Or children being sold for slavery, and young girls being sold for sex. It breaks my spirit to see people living in poverty next door to the millionaire who worships money more than his God, and then calls himself a humble Christian. This is not the spirit you blessed us with when we entered this world.

So again I cry out to the Heavens, “God, why don’t you do something?” "Why don't you, at the blink of an eye, heal all of us and fill every heart with your love?" Why must we suffer? Why must we helplessly watch others suffer?

And you know what God says back to me each time I cry out to him? "Why don’t you do something? I created you. I know every hair on your head. I know your heart's desires before you do. I see the end, while you are experiencing the middle. I gave you life, I gave you a story to tell. I've already written your story on your heart. I am the author of your life. Now go out there and change the world and follow my plan for you. Be the voice. Teach others what I've taught you. Be my vessel. Be the voice to what brings your spirit alive. Your childhood history will be your legacy because you are a witness too me."

The spirit never forgets. My spirit remembers every minute of everyday of my child abuse inflicted by my mother. I remember every minute of the first three years of my life in a small, dark closet floor confined to a homemade straight jacket. But if it wasn't for God's soft voice whispering to me, "Hang on, it will be over soon!" I would have given up and I wouldn't be writing this blog for you right now, 49 years later. But it was with his soft voice that He revealed a gift of perseverance and hope that what I was hearing as truth. It's because of my story, because of my spirit that I speak out as the voice for the silent victims. "One Survivor's Voice for Millions of Silent Victims!" TM. I have walked in their shoes, and I know their pain, which is all too familar. The children who are feeling physical, emotional and spiritual pain right now, my spirit is connected to theirs. My spirit can feel their spirit's pain. This is because we are all connected in this universe through our spirits and through God's love. As a innocent soul, there is nothing more frightening, scary and painful because we do not understand why any of the darkness is happening. And as we grow into young adults, we carry all of this darkness around, while our spirits have been sacraficed. Unless someone takes us under their wing and brings us through years of love, nuturing and healing, our spirits may carry this throughout our lifetime. Yes it does take years of unonditional love, patience and compassion to help these children overcome this horrific experience. I was one of them. And because I was one of them, I want to stand up and do something now.

Okay, if not me, then who? If not now, then when? It’s time for not just me, but all of us to do make a difference. There are no limitations. Failure has never been an option, only faith, passion and perseverance. We are fully equipped to step up and end this generational disease called abuse, neglect and maltreatment.

There must be an end to all of this pain, there must be an end to the pain and suffering. We can't keep telling ourselves it's going to be alright. If a small flame can turn darkness into light, then each of us are the flames to create a fire and turn this darkness into light.

It's exhausting to talk "awareness" year after year. Our world is beyond awareness. We need prevention. We need action. Every single day, more stories then I can count of child torture, abuse, neglect, starvation and maltreatment over whelm the nightly news and social media. But our spirits only feel empathy for the three minutes it took to read or watch these stories, but then we move into living a life of apathy and convince ourselves there is nothing we can do. Then we sit back and wait and wath until someone else stands up to do something.

Are we not to be God’s hands and feet? Or is it conditional for most of us. We will never change if we don't move. For what doesn't change simply remains still.

So one more cry out to the Heavens, “God, why don’t you help us save the children?” "Why don't you, at the blink of an eye, open our hearts to these children?" Why must they suffer. Why must we helplessly watch them suffer. Equip us, empower us to rid this darkness from this world, with the blink of your eye!

Love and Light,

Debra Pauli
