What is RAD?

RAD is sin.  It's core is pride.  Always thinking of oneself.  Selfishness.  One way attaching struggles shows itself is through controlling behavior.  RAD is hell, a burning pit full of fire.  It is a lack of trust.  It is anger.  It is habitual like an addiction that needs to be broken.

What's it like living with attachment struggles?

These struggles are sad, unpleasing, stressful, painful, lonesome, and frustrating.  The struggle can cause anger, hard-heartedness,  and bitterness in the person who is sinning and the people who are dealing with them.  

Why are you led to share your experiences with others?

Because it is the story God gave me.  I'm not ashamed to tell it.  I may help someone else who is going through the same struggles.   I am accepting my past/early life.  God gave me a beautiful life.  Hopefully I can help others as I fight this battle with trust issues and learn to submit to HIM.

Thanks so much for sharing your struggles! We all have them, you know, and they are never easy! Your courage and transparency in sharing your story will, I'm sure, help someone to overcome their own struggle. I prayed for you when you were a little girl and you have now become a beautiful young woman. Never, ever, ever, forget how much Jesus loves you and that God's perfect plan for you is unfolding each and every day. Some days are really tough, even if you don't struggle with RAD. I'm a Mom with a wonderful husband and two beautiful daughters and I still struggle with pride and selfishness and loss of self control. I too, don't like it when I sin but I know the Lord is refining me and helping me to change so that I can be more like Him. And I know that He loves me and that His grace is sufficient for me. Hang in there dear one, draw close to your Savior, and He will draw close to you! Love Julie
