Dear God, I Hate You


Have you ever hated God? Felt betrayed, neglected, or abandoned? Where was God through your painful days and anguished nights? Why did he allow you to to be molested or raped? Why were you adopted or a foster child? Born in an impoverished land? Why are your eyes slanty? Will you ever be pretty or good enough? Why you? Why? Why? Why?


Hurt? Broken? Depressed? Most of these emotions come from mental bondage and spiritual release will be your answer. Help lies ahead. Read on.


I see the broken and I see the hurting. I see your tears at night.  I hear your cries. May you find comfort in knowing God has taken care of your hurts and you can lay them at the feet of Jesus and begin to heal. Yes. Healing is on its way. Redemption lies ahead. For Jesus proclaims, "[...] Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

To help you rest, God birthed in my spirit a book entitled, Confessions of a Broken Heart to help women heal from the past hurts, shame, and guilt that keep them bound. In this book, I solicit raw testimonials to address what people usually shy away from - the ugly truth. Why shy away from the truth?  People need transparency so they can be delivered and set free from the bondage of their pasts. Thus far, I have received submissions from women who have been victimized by their pasts of abortion; adoption; rape; child abuse; homosexuality; racism. addictions; neglect; drugs; single parent families; suicide attempts; terminal illness; domestic abuse; STDs; gambling; porn; prostitution; incest; generational curses; gossip;, fighting; self-hate; jealousy; sibling rivalry; genital mutilation; prison; and other negative situations that leave us feeling utterly bitter and worthless. But God wants to heal us so we can become WHOLE in him. The walls are talking and people are dying to listen. From Nepal to Singapore. Kenya to California. Costa Rica to Sierra Leone. Eritera to Sri Lanka. Italy to Atlanta. Women across the world are connecting by sharing their stories and reaching for hope in Jesus Christ. Will you join us, today?

Ladies, if you are interested in being featured in Confessions of a Broken Heart, please pray and seek the Lord first and if he affirms, then submit your 700-900 word testimony to mimi@mimiqatkins.com. I will edit it to fit the tone and mission of the book and e-mail you back the edited version of your story.

You don't have to scream you hate God anymore. It's time to move past emotions and get to the truth. These truths leads to the path to healing. And we can heal - TOGETHER. Let's gather together to make Christ known and help women crucify the enemy and gain identity in Christ because Matthew 18:20 declares, "For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them." Remember, we serve an AWESOME God. He is beyond amazing. I love you, sincerely.
