Paula Baker on Living Boldly Like Never Before

Journey is a six-month course providing in-depth discipleship and prayer support with the goal of helping individuals experience Jesus in their relationships, sexuality and identity.

We recently connected with Paula Baker, Journey alum and leader, who shared her experience with the course and how it changed her life.  Paula was encouraged by others who had been through Journey previously and like many, she wrestled with the financial and time commitment that is required.  Eventually, she realized that ultimately God would provide all she needed to take the leap. 

How did you decide to get involved with Journey?

Paula:  I just did it.  Did I look back and think, “What are you thinking? This is such a huge commitment.  Are you really ready to do this?” Yup, sure did. However, my obedience to the call of God outweighed all the chatter and now that I’m on the other side, I definitely have no regrets.

In what ways did Journey impact your life?  What’s different?

Paula:  The biggest change for me was getting my voice.  I have been saved for 48 years and have been to several different churches.  Having lived in three different states, I’ve also been involved in the Church in many different capacities.  I always was involved, but I’ve never had the freedom that I’ve experienced from going through Journey. 

Some short background info – I am from Syracuse, NY.  I am the oldest of three and the only daughter.  My brothers were both born with disabilities that required them to need a lot of attention.  I experienced trauma and sexual abuse starting at a very young age. That’s actually when I first met Jesus, at age three. I knew He was with me and He held me and I felt His safeness at 3-years-old.  I didn’t know who He was and I couldn’t see Him but He was as real as you are right now to me. 

Because of the abuse, I learned early to be quiet and not to tell anyone anything.  I believed I was “marked” as a target for all kinds of trauma and abuse until I was about 40.  There are many stories I could tell in this space, but I want to share more on where I am now.  Looking back to where I was when I started Journey and comparing to where I am today – I am at a place where I’m not afraid anymore to use my voice, to stand up for myself, and to declare who I am in Christ boldly like never before.  I’m at a place where I no longer isolate.  I have the attitude that I have Jesus, so what the heck do I need people for?

What is one thing you learned in the course?  Is there an area of your life that has changed?

Paula:  The biggest change I’ve made is that I’m not going to ignore emotions because I perceive them as negative.  I’m a human and to feel is human.  

This is a quote from a book I was reading – “When we deny our pain, losses, and feelings year after year, we become less and less human.  We transform slowly into empty shells with smiley faces painted on them.  Sad to say, that is the fruit of much of our churches.  But when I began to allow myself to feel a wider range of emotions – including sadness and depression, fear and anger – a revolution in my spirituality was unleashed.  I soon realized that a failure to appreciate the biblical place of feelings within our larger Christian lives has done extensive damage, keeping free people in Christ, in slavery.” (Peter Scazzero, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: Unleash a Revolution in Your Life In Christ)

God is an emotional being who feels.  Having been created in His image, we have the gift of experiencing emotions.  In the past, I feared that if I opened up about my feelings, I would fall into a black hole never to return.  That’s a lie!

I learned that God is actually able to handle years and years and years of stuffed emotions.  I become free and alive.  I discovered His grace and the depth of His love.  I’m not afraid anymore to speak up, to share my story, to advocate for myself.  He is truly ALL I–or any of you–EVER need.  He’s my source, our source for all we need!  He’s my forever friend and my TRUE SAVIOR.  Without Him, I surely would not even be alive to tell you this… for real! 

How are you involved with Journey now and what do you hope to share with others?

Paula:  My journey with Journey continues.  I am now on the Journey team supporting others in this course.  I’m looking forward to the upcoming sessions and seeing others move forward in freedom.  I would encourage anyone who wants to move deeper in their walk and, even more importantly, to become free in areas you never would have realized otherwise – join us in Journey.
