Questions for Treasure Box
Hi â Iâm Kat, aka The Treasure Box.
I began my life with a Treasure Box that I wanted to fill with great treasures. Growing up I did not receive what I needed to have a healthy sense of self-love, so I struggled to fill my Treasure Box with riches I thought would make me truly happy.
Years went on and I filled my box with cheap baubles. I put in drugs, alcohol, sleeping around, and looking for the boy that would love me and make me whole and make me feel beautiful. I filled it with self-pleasure such as video games, computer games, movies and books. But I still felt empty, ugly and unloved. I went through three angry, controlling husbands and received five children. Everyone was a mess. I was just as angry and controlling. Hate and fighting raged through my Box.
Then in the year 2000, I finally saw Godâs Hand reaching down to me. He was offering different riches to fill up that hole in my heart. I accepted Jesus as my Savior and made Him the Master of my life. We struggled back and forth as I gave Him control and then took it right back. But in the end, He won.
God began to fill up my Box with True Treasures. He healed my broken heart. He gave me a sense of self-worth that is everlasting. He taught me forgiveness, and replaced the hate and anger in my Treasure Box with love. He showed me how beautiful I was in His eyes. And He took away my need to have a man in my life in order to feel loved. He has been the Father that I never had, and He has tenderly taken care of me. For the first time in my life, I am now whole, through His personal interventions.
As soon as I learned to depend on God totally, He blessed me with a great husband, and He has restored wholeness in my children. They now walk with God, too.
God is very Real and very Personal. He is my Best Friend and the Love of my life. Without Him, I would be nothing. I want to share those Treasures with you.
Treasure Box is off until September. One of the other counselors will be happy to answer any questions or comments you might have.
