My name is Angie Cleary, and I’m all “about” sharing the unconditional Love, Hope, and Salvation, that is found in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is transforming me on a daily basis, and I know I fall short every single day. In all honesty my life is far from perfect. I’m just a broken sinner, saved by the grace of God, The beauty of my brokenness, is God takes all the broken parts of me, and puts them back together, and he will do the same for you.
I promise I will not hide the fact, that my life is messy. I struggle with doubts and insecurities. I’m not gonna pretend, and say my life is in order, and I have all the answers, because I don’t. I do promise to be real, open, and honest with you, and I hope it impacts your life in some way. My hope is by sharing my walk with Jesus Christ with you, (in all my ups and downs, valleys and mountaintops, and trials and victories, it will show you just how amazing, a follower of Jesus Christ can be.
A Christian life is NOT always as easy life, but it is a fulfilling one. Let’s build friendships, share some laughter, and shed a few tears. As We Walk Together In Faith And Not By Sight.
I would like to share a little of my background with you. I’m from Kentucky and I lived there most of my life. I got married at nineteen. You know how we are when we’re younger, we think we know everything…We Don’t. I found out the hard way, that I had no idea, what I was getting into. I ended up spending 15 years in an abusive marriage, that broke me. To this day I still suffer the damage, from that time of my life.
I have two children, Mark and Rebecca. I have 4 amazing grandchildren…Tyler, Gabriella, Kali, and Gavin. I can not tell you enough, how special grandchildren are, and they’ll change your life. When you hold them for the first time, it will leave you in awe, the Love you feel toward them. Sadly, we lost our first grandchild Tyler, at 4 1/2 months, due to SIDS. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.
Since moving to North Carolina, I found my husband Mike, and he has taught me, what unconditional love, is really supposed to look like. I had no idea, that kind of love existed, until Mike came into my life. Mike will do anything for anyone. He has the biggest heart, of any man I know. He loves the Lord, with his entire being. Mike and I have learned, that we need Jesus Christ, as the foundation in our marriage. As long as we keep God first, everything else will fall into place, according to his will and purpose, for our lives.
I currently work as a Phlebotomist/Medical Assistant at our local Oncology Office. I love my job, but it can be extremely hard some days. I truly feel, God opened the opportunity, for me to become employed there. I have several AutoImmune Disorders, and was feeling rather sorry for myself, for the longest time. BUT GOD, showed me through these amazing people, that I can have it much worse than I do.
For so long I tried to please everyone, and trust me, that gets exhausting. It is impossible. I fight shame, regret, bitterness, and worthlessness on a daily basis. There is always a voice screaming at me, that I will never be enough. Can you relate? But I will remind you, as I remind myself, with scriptures from God’s word, that we are more than enough, in Jesus Christ.
More often than not, I want to do things my way. But God’s mercy and grace reminds me, that I need to do it his way, not my own. Let’s face it, his ways are far better than mine. But God shows me his unconditional love and forgiveness, when I mess up. I hope my stories will encourage, inspire, and uplift you, but most importantly, I pray they lead you, to look to Jesus Christ.
In Jesus Christ we have hope, we find freedom, we receive courage, power and strength. Because of Jesus Christ, my heart has been made new, and set free. And who the Son sets free, is free indeed. I Pray you have put your hope in him too.
