15 months after he bought us a car and titled it in his name only, then stranded me with it refusing to title it to me, I finally own it in my name. My car is mine! I danced in the DMV parking lot–I was so joyous.
The years of financial sacrifices are finally not his gain alone. He doesn’t control my money anymore. I have learned by sheer determination how to manage my finances after years of being prohibited from doing so. I can account for every cent. No more can he gaslight me or unsettle me by keeping me in economic darkness and powerlessness.
He can’t see the phone # of every call or text I write. I have my own non-contract plan. What a relief to have those cold hard eyes of his off of my life.
I am one institution away from being legally recognized as my own self. So close to the end of signing with a name he never deserved the honor of me carrying.
Praise you Lord Jesus for teaching me the simple and amazing joy of trusting God the Father and for sharing the gift of eternal life. Praise to my Holy Father who keeps watch over me. And praise to the Holy Spirit whose living energy overflows my well of hope. Amen!
I am blessed. I am free. I am me.
