But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
My name is Pamela Jensen. I am a woman who loves God, who thrives when I allow Holy Spirit to guide my steps and who absolutely adores Jesus.
The verse above is my “life verse”. I live in Oregon with my wonderful husband and our “fur-baby”. This blog is a result of sharing one of the gifts God has given me by writing and sharing what He puts on my heart.
I have enjoyed leading Bible studies both at a church and in my home. I have also written and led Retreats, which tend to be my favorite because there is nothing like pouring into people who have pulled away specifically because they long to be poured into. I am always humbled and amazed at how deeply God speaks to others through me when I yield everything to Him.
I was raised by a godly family, attending Sunday school, confirmation classes and church on a regular basis. I have, in my past, walked fully away from God and my faith (not realizing that even though I left, He was always there). However, God never quit pursuing my heart and finally I wised up and came back to His loving arms.
Throughout my life, because of my own poor choices, I have walked in many dark places I should not have walked. God protected me in all the terrifying situations and places into which I walked. No matter where I wandered, God was with me, whether I realized it or not. I believe that He let me go so deep into the darkness that I would know, beyond a doubt, that I never wanted to go back.
Since those wanderings into darkness, I have come back to His light. I have been healed, both emotionally and physically, in ways I never thought possible. In 2012, my dad suddenly died and through that traumatic experience I began to realize I needed to Slow Down and focus on what was important in life. At the time when my dad died, I was reading Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. That was not a mistake. As I read those words through tears of loss, I was introduced to the idea that how I thought affected how I felt and lived. God made it abundantly clear to me that my dad struggled with his thoughts his whole life and this was a time for me to realize that and to start a new way of thinking in my life and in our family. As I began to “think about what I was thinking about” God opened my eyes to His thinking about me and how very much He loved me. It was then that I realized how much I truly loathed myself. Upon that realization, God was able to start transforming my mind with His words and His love and it has been a journey of love and joy ever since.
Along these years, God has continued to pursue my heart. Often I would turn and run from Him scared of what would happen if I gave up my half-hearted desire for Him and fully dived into His love. Since I dove in, He has blessed me with such fruitful relationship in Him, more than I could ever have asked or imagined.
During these past years God has revealed hidden deep seated wounds and healed them completely. Spending time listening to Holy Spirit speak revealed to me where I had believed lies of the enemy and how I had allowed him to reign over my life in many areas. Those lies have been replaced by God’s truth and I am walking in the most amazing freedom I could have ever imagined. I may have other lies that have been planted by the enemy, but I know that “It is Finished” already and I continue to walk forward I have power through Jesus to eradicate them when the lies are revealed.
During this healing process, God made it abundantly clear that He desired me to become a Certified Personal Trainer. Like, So, WHY?? That was an assignment I completed in March of 2019, and renewed again in 2021. I am still not entirely sure what that certification will bring about but I know it’s gonna rock!
Thanks for coming along, I pray that the experiences and lessons of love that God allows me to share will help you on your journey. May God bless your journey deeper into His heart in you!
