Prayer for Psychiatric Patients.

In The Name of Yeshua, we Praise God for His Faithfulness and for The Truth which sets people free!

Heavenly Father, we thank You for Who You are and for what Yeshua did for all the world on The Mercy Tree. We thank You that He tasted death for ALL mankind, that none should perish, but all would come to saving faith in Yeshua with true repentance.

We thank You Lord, that as it is Written, by His Stripes, we are healed!

Isaiah 53:5 King James Version (KJV)

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

 

We thank You, Lord, for complete freedom tonight! Let the captives be set free!

Isaiah 61:1-3 King James Version (KJV)

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.


 

In The Name of Yeshua, we LOOSE The Fruit of The Spirit into all mental health facilities in the entire world! We loose the peace that surpasses understanding, the fear of The Lord, healing and deliverance in Yeshua’s Name! We break and cancel ALL enemy assignments, including witchcraft, operating within the walls of ALL mental health facilities arrayed against the lives of both patients and staff members in Yeshua’s Name!

We give thanks, Almighty God, that right now You will deliver people from all mind control in Yeshua’s Name. Please shine Your Light on the darkest of places in this world. Wake people up to see what is really going on through Divine Revelation by Your Spirit. We thank you for shutting down and canceling the receiving of Illuminati  mind control with The Blood of Yeshua, making the masses immune to the plans of The Antichrist through mind control. Praise You God in Yeshua’s Name! Amen!

In The Name of Yeshua, we BIND ALL fear, suicide, depression, death and destruction, homosexuality, perversion, and all other spirits contrary to the Spirit of God. May all of these mental health facilities now receive the love of Yeshua instead. In Yeshua’s Name, we remit the sins of all mental health facilities and doctor’s offices so that people can receive The Gospel and be born again right now. Thank You, LORD.

We give thanks and praise YOU, Almighty God, right now in The Name of Yeshua, that all medications, foods, and beverages within ALL psychiatric hospitals, facilities and doctor’s offices are now PURGED and cleansed by The Blood of Yeshua with NO side effects. May all of the patients be blessed and healed by all medications now. We thank You for deliverance today, Lord God! We break and cancel any backlash or retaliation against anyone in any way as a result of this prayer, and we praise You for all these things,

In Yeshua’s Name, Amen!

Prayers for David Arthur

Please pray for Brother David Arthur and the ministry that God has given him to soar and change the world in the greatest of ways for the LGBT community. His Testimony is precious and Glorifies our Lord. The hurting people need to know that if God can deliver David, He can deliver them too! †

The following biography is from David Arthur’s website which you can visit HERE.

Meet David Arthur

David has a powerful testimony of deliverance from a  sexually perverted life, including homosexual & transgender prostitution, drug addiction, gambling, alcohol, and so on,

as well as being healed from his deathbed with full blown AIDS,

no immune system, infections in his brain and blood, severe

Osteoporosis, diabetes, and the list goes on and on.

What a Mighty GOD we serve!

David was sexually abused from around the age of 5. He contracted HIV/AIDS at age fourteen.

And by age 37 he was on his deathbed. That was in 2009.

With his body weakening, in a hospital bed that was placed in his bedroom at home, David knew he was headed for hell. He cried out to God in desperation. He was afraid to die and he didn’t want to go to hell, yet he knew hell was what he deserved. David Arthur hit rock

bottom and turned to God. God heard David’s cry.

Jeremiah 29:11-15 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord:

and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you…”

God not only rescued David from the captivity of his addictions, but freed him from physical & spiritual death.  He is healthy and strong, today. Praise God! This is a miracle!

He was so far gone that the doctors sent him home to die, giving him 3 months to live. David prayed for weeks, repenting of all his sins – in detail, as he prepared for death.

Then one day David woke up with an incredible peace inside, what he calls his “Moment of Grace”. A peace like he had never experienced. He was free of sin that held him captive! David still believed he was going to die, but he was no longer afraid of death and knew that he was not going to hell. He was at peace with himself, because he knew, without a shadow of a doubt,

that he was forgiven by God. David hoped that through his

death others would come to know Christ.

But God surprised David. His bones started getting stronger. Within weeks David no longer

used a walker to stand up. Then the doctors told him his diabetes was gone.

After that, David stopped most of his medications. And within months

AIDS was no longer detectable in his system. He was undetectable.

Depression, anxiety, PTSD and many other “diagnoses”

were gone. David knew, at that moment,

that those were just symptoms

of being in the world.

He was no longer ‘of this world’.

God healed him!

It’s a miracle! And now David spends all of his time giving God the glory for his new life.

You don’t want to miss hearing David tell of GOD’S Amazing Grace

and the Freedom from any & all sin.

**Added April of 2016**

Allow me to be transparent for a moment. Many years ago (in the 1990’s) I was accused of a crime for which I was not guilty. I was, however, guilty of committing that very crime many times over, just not in the instance in which I was accused. Let me begin with a few facts. I was molested (recruited) as a child. The men who had traumatized me used the fact that I had no father in my life (he had committed suicide)

to play on the fact that I was seeking love and attention from a male figure.

I do not state these facts to blame or to excuse what I did once I was old enough to make those decisions. I was a monster! I did unspeakable things to men and teenage boys across this entire country – which includes intentionally and purposely trying, and succeeding, to infect many with HIV. Yes, a monster!

And please do not pity me. I made the choice to become a monster, and I know

it was a choice, because now I choose not to do any of those things

by The Power of JESUS CHRIST within me!

From turning to homosexuality and then transgenderism, and ultimately becoming a molester myself

(a recruiter), that dark movement became the false sense of love and

security I sought for so many years. I then watched how common it

was for children to be “recruited” (molested) into that dark world.

These children, younger than teenagers, were being lured in with money, drugs, alcohol, a place to stay,

material things and whatever else might seduce a common teenage boy or girl.

These boys and girls are used in ways I’d rather not describe; and passed around, profited from, and then tossed away like a common piece of garbage. I believe this is why so many young men and

women on the streets are addicted to drugs, alcohol, and on psych medications.

These vulnerable addicts are used in the porn industry, sex-trafficking

and on street corners, selling their bodies.

Scary, I know! I was part of this movement. I know that the focus has always been to gain access to children – to your children and grandchildren, which they now have by the way. After all, that is how I was recruited. I know what is potentially in store for your child when they doubt their sexuality, or struggle through

that awkward stage of puberty with raging hormones.

If they choose to confide in a teacher or counselor at school they can be referred to an adult lgbt activist

(that has no degree in social work or psych) that is allowed to visit your child’s school

specifically to meet with your child in private, without your knowledge or permission.

Do you want your child, or grandchild, to be alone with a predator while they are experiencing

the normal confusion of puberty and hormonal changes? Do you want a predator to have

access to your child’s deepest and most cherished secrets, thoughts and insecurities?

Please understand that GOD has rescued me from homosexuality, transgenderism, and even my death-bed from full-blown AIDS and numerous infections. I had no immune system and was sent home to die! Death is what I deserved for all I had done! And I did die! The old man has truly passed away and the new man

has risen up and was rescued from the clutches of the most evil movement on the face of this planet!

So don’t pity me because because I had it rough! Don’t pity me because I fell victim to this evil! I deserve nothing but judgement and wrath but GOD chose to grant me His grace and mercy. I give God that glory! By rescuing me from the cesspools of this world HE has allowed this Truth to be written to you here and now!

Psalm 40:2 – “He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay,

and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.”

Wake up! Know that it is time to stand up, and speak out to save these children! NO more children should suffer at the hands of this movement! No more children should ever have to endure what I had to endure! No more boys or girls should have to be seduced or lured into darkness and fall into hands of this movement!

*****ABOUT THE FOLLOWING PHOTOS : Please know that I do not show them to boast or brag, but to show and prove that it does not matter how deep into sin you are, how far gone you might think you are or how far you have taken those sins… there is a way out. The Truth, JESUS CHRIST, can and will set you free.*****

If you or someone you know are struggling with sexual perversion, transgender issues, or homosexuality, take ❤️ heart. Yeshua/ The Lord Jesus Christ can set you free today!

A Prayer For The Broken and a Conversation with The Church.

Father God,

Tonight I’m crying out on behalf of everyone in the world who is hurting. Everyone who has no idea of how precious they really are in your sight. For the dear souls that Jesus bought back with His Precious Blood on The Cross at Calvary, who have no idea that they are made in The Image of The LORD God Almighty.  Lord, it is written in Your Holy Word,

Psalm 51:17    The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Psalm 34:18   The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

God, we come to you brokenhearted tonight and just lay it all on the Altar. You have shown me today God that there is a pain so heavy we cannot bear it and are not able to process it. Especially at a very young age. Trauma. It is my minuscule understanding that there are places someplace inside of our being or our mind where these particular events are hidden away so that we can function.

I do not believe as some do that these are alters, but places of refuge that the demons take advantage of when they have ground to torment us. Your Grace is Truly Amazing, Lord God. The peak I’ve gotten of Your heart brings me to tears. You are so Beautiful. I love you. You know I want to love you with ALL of my heart. This is why you have exposed the brokenness in me. What the world calls Bipolar Disorder or Multiple Personality disorder is just a term in Satan’s Kingdom of Pharmaceuticals and money to deal with the problem at hand.  The suffering is all too real for too many. Tonight I plead on behalf of the whole world for an awakening and revelation because You said in Your Word,

Hosea 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

The Churches today are not teaching The FULL GOSPEL, Lord. They cut Jesus off in Mark Chapter 16 at verse 16 (when He was STILL TALKING) in Your Description of The Great Commission to ALL Believers-NOT just the people back then. So much false doctrine and craziness going on today. Not many are walking in Power, signs and miracles as you gave us the Authority to do so, with Your Precious Holy Spirit living inside of us.

Mark 16:15-20   And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

The Church is unaware of Her Identity today, Lord.

The reality is found in Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

 

If we as The Body of Christ knew Whose and Who we are, we would truly be walking in power and love with signs and wonders following our witness and preaching. Perhaps the world, or at least some of the world would come to saving faith in Jesus. Our identity is in Christ, we are not ourselves anymore after getting saved. So, tonight, we cry, ABBA, Father! Please wake up Your People and let them know just how much they are worth and how You Love them! Let’s reach the entire world with our testimonies for your Glory and the saving of souls!

God, give us the healing and deliverance we need to feel your love and overcome the pain we have acquired over the years. You will bind our wounds and wipe away our tears…oh, how you really do love us. In Jesus Name, Thank you, Amen.

Brothers and Sisters, let’s  go back  The Cross and remember our First Love. Let us remember WHY we started this journey. I know so many of you feel like quitting right now or maybe just don’t see a way out, but know this:

Isaiah 61:1   The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

This is FOR THE WORLD. Discouraged Christians. Sobbing sinners. Hurting, broken people in a dark and dying world.

This is not a message of condemnation but of a heavy prayer burden. Child of GOD, You are the Light. We just have to use it and shine for them all to see! Shine for JESUS ♥

IF we share the Truth…If we seek His Face in our prayer closets, we will surely find Him and He will share His heart with us. Let us pray for one another in this dark hour, and for the soil to be tilled, and for The Laborers to bet sent forth to The Harvest. I pray this encourages you. If it blesses you in any way, it’s The HOLY SPIRIT. I’m just writing what’s on my heart. God has been showing me things lately…like how the wall of my pride has to come down. We don’t have to worry about what in the world we are going to do right now because He said He’d finish what He started and NEVER leave us nor forsake us. Sweet dreams, Beloved. Rest, knowing it’s okay to be broken. You do not have to stay that way… Jesus Christ paid for your debt and with all 39 Stripes He paid for your healing and hurt.

1 Corinthians 1:28

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

My Journey Through The Wilderness 2017

I have been on quite the spiritual journey in a dark sense now for pretty much all of this year 2017. It’s just about June and I feel led to blog about the matter and what’s been going on. Maybe you can relate, maybe you are not there yet. Maybe you are RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW with a sigh of relief that you are not the only one going through all of this! Regardless, through it all, we never face any battle alone. Jesus is ALWAYS there with us.

It began with research, watching deliverance seminars on YouTube, the purchasing of a couple books, studying and applying self deliverance (casting demons out of myself in The Name of Jesus, for example, the spirit of anxiety), leading to a heavier internal situation that I am currently living with. It’s like Incubus and Succubus only it does not only bother me when I am sleeping. I am praying for God’s Grace everyday.

So here’s what I’m noticing so far:

I have not yet learned to praise HIM in the storm.

I have not yet learned to appreciate this thorn.

  • I am studying 2 Corinthians 12:9

Sins that were hidden are sort of coming to the light right now. I can see my life a little more clearly spiritually in this wilderness.

I have been complaining A LOT.

I have pleaded and begged GOD to take this away from me!!! So far the answer is no, but I believe He has shown me I am being chastened. Everything in heaven, on the earth and beneath the earth is subject to The Name of Jesus Christ, but the demons that are afflicting me are allowed to stay for now. I am coming to terms with this daily. I have the worst negative thoughts like “Man, I must be the dirtiest rotten sinner ever!” as I sit in self pity. There’s so much more than the actual affliction though.

I’m not quite sure how I got myself into this mess.  I have learned one thing. If you go digging into and researching the spirit world or the occult anyplace, demons can and will manifest. For me, it all began at the beginning of this year when I was fascinated with the idea that there just might be a spiritual cause for my Bipolar Disorder because of some amazing points I had read online and how it all seemed to fit. I know we live in a spiritual world. There are only angels and demons, no ghosts and all the other stuff that is man made. Seeing a dead relative is actually seeing a demonic manifestation or apparition. Psychics only hear from familiar spirits, they have no special ability. Infected people can hear from familiar spirits too even if they don’t want to. This is where I believe Schizophrenia comes in. But that’s a different blog for another day I hope. Once I make it through this trial and if the Rapture of The Church hasn’t happened yet, I will certainly be updating my pages at the top of my main blog site. I have been learning so much about how we can really be set free.

I have acquired a lot of knowledge and can back it up with what Jesus said in The Bible. People can still be healed and have demons cast out of them to be free. Anyone who is a true born-again believer can do these things.

Mark 3:14-15 (KJV)

14 And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,

15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

 

Mark 16:16-18 (KJV)

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

 

John 14:11-13 (KJV)

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.


So much to say… On the positive side,

I am becoming more reliant upon God and therefore growing closer to Him.

My eyes have been opened so very wide. I will never see life the same again at all.

Now I’ve discovered this power is real but I cannot operate in it yet in ministry because I am being chastened by The Lord. This dark and difficult time is for my good though. I know my suffering is not in vain. It is certainly humbling. More to come later..

God bless you, and know that your suffering is not in vain. Amen.

With God I Can

tyLordJESUS

Romans 8:14-18 KJV

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

 

Praise God for The Holy Spirit reminding me tonight that I need not feel condemned and guilty for lack of servitude. There is great need and opportunity in my very path to serve and to help others, but I am not doing so.  I was reminded tonight that I cannot do it of my own strength. Thank you Jesus! I need to ask God to change me from the inside out and make me able to serve. You see, in listening to the enemy (the accuser of the Brethren), when pointing out my shortcomings I became very depressed. I went to sleep confounded without words.

After I got up, the sweet Spirit of God reminded me of this truth: Father God will finish what he began in me by Himself. He doesn’t need my help. I need His. I cannot change things myself by my own strength. It begins with my personal well-being. The devil has been attacking my entire daily life. I have been going around in a negative circle.  My body clock is off with poor sleep. I am napping around the clock without an actual nightly sleep cycle. Because I am exhausted, I am not exercising, not to mention the poor diet. I am not equipped for the job without my Heavenly Father doing the work in me necessary.  I may be weary and worn but I know that God can turn all of this around. So I give it to Him.

Not by might, but by His Spirit.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”   Philippians 4:13

Personal Journey

I Should Not Be Surprised.

Sitting here alone tonight and it’s almost 2 a.m. There’s so much going on in my life right now, so many things on my mind. I see the whole world gone mad and increasing rapidly day by day. So I guess you could say it’s like this great whirlwind of heartache and chaos from beneath my very own roof extending all throughout this world. Today I took an extra nap. I admit I’ve been feeling defeated with all of these problems and people that I cannot control nor fix. But then it dawned on me tonight…

I’m still in His hands. My God, my Father reminded me of how my 14 year old Chihuahua’s health has perked up and how she has come so far in but a couple of months. It was revealed to me by Him of just how far she had come and how bad her pain was. I recalled crying in my husband’s arms a couple of months ago when it looked like there was no hope at all. My baby was walking around with her tiny frame all contorted and whimpering along. I just knew she’d have to be put to sleep, forever… But we took her to the vet to get checked out. The X-ray showed that her spine was bent in the middle (the arch of her back) and the cartilages between the disks had worn so thin at the top. He didn’t mention putting her to sleep and I held my breath.

That day my husband, my mom and I returned home with some pain medication and antibiotic for her stomach and diarrhea episodes. We’ve went back a time or two for refills on the pain meds. She still requires maintenance but looks normal now. Sort of thin. There are days when she needs her meds…but my oh my, My God breathed on my dog, my baby!!!  And some days, she runs like a puppy. I can hardly keep up when I try and meet her at the mailbox! I know she is still elderly at 14 yrs old. If the Rapture of The Church doesn’t happen first, I will experience her loss. But not like I would have. I truly believe she will be in Heaven forever with me.

I now see that I have taken this all for granted. This MIRACLE! Of course The Lord knew all about our special bond and how she’s been there all along. Since before my Bipolar diagnosis and through the loss of my dad she has always been there. Sitting here tonight in the quiet gave me the ability to really think. The Lord reminded me that if He could do such a great thing for my  tiny dog, Little Bit, how much more great things could He do in the rest of my life. I was discounting Him. The Creator of The Universe. I am learning to walk by faith and not by sight.  All for His glory. God is love itself. God is compassion. All good things come from above.

I am so grateful for the hundreds of people that cared enough to respond in prayer during that time for me. PRAYER is so powerful. It is so important. It’s so awesome that The Lord has brought me into networks with all sorts of Brothers & Sisters in Christ. In these dark times we really need one another to keep that fire going. I just wanted to share this with everyone in hope that it blesses you and may bring encouragement to a hurting soul.

If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ, He is only a prayer away! Find love beyond measure, peace that surpasses understanding, and the comfort of The Holy Spirit today! Don’t put it off. We never know what day may be our last.

Revelation 3:20  King James Version (KJV)

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

 

 

Romans 10:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

The Transplant

When I take a moment and pause to think about my life, I am overcome with joy and quiet laughter.  It’s because of the glory of God being revealed to me each day. His miracles are the sweetest things I’ve ever known. Every time with Jesus. He gives me butterflies.

Acts 2:25-28  King James Version (KJV)

25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

He knows we have little strength.

Revelation 3:8  King James Version (KJV)

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

But He takes care of us!

Matthew 11:28 – Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Isaiah 40:31 – But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Accepting the free gift of Salvation  (which comes through The Lord Jesus Christ, The Son of God, and He alone) CHANGES everything! With The Holy Spirit inside of you, a new heart and a new perspective… The Bible, God’s Word, will come to life unlike before you were saved! In Jesus you will find purpose. In Christ there is a peace that surpasses understanding. You are never alone.

Heart surgery was what I needed.

Ezekiel 36:26-27  King James Version (KJV)

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, I encourage you to see Him now because the soul goes on. You were created by Almighty God and will exist forever either way. Jesus is the only way. I pray you will make Him your way today. God bless. ♥

Romans 10:9

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

Why Do I Have So Many Issues?

By Lysa TerKeurst

issues

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 KJV

Have you ever looked at other people and thought to yourself, “How does everyone else have it all together? And why is it I seem to have so many issues?”

I understand. For most of my life, I’ve struggled with my weight and committing to a healthy lifestyle. My soul was rubbed raw from years of trying and failing.

I wanted something to instantly fix my issues.
I wanted to stop calling myself awful names I’d never let another person call me.
I wanted to be naturally thin like my sister.
I wanted to stop crying when I walked into my closet to get dressed in the morning.

So when I lost 25 pounds a few years ago and kept it off for the first time in my life, it was a huge victory.

But my real celebration hasn’t been over the smaller clothing size and reduced numbers on the scale. My real celebration is over the spiritual insights I gained while losing the weight and maintaining my healthy progress.

For me, this has been a spiritual journey — a significant spiritual journey with great physical benefits. I had been overweight physically and underweight spiritually and finally tying those two things together was life changing.

One of the richest lessons has been realizing the amount of mental and spiritual energy I wasted for years just wishing things would change. All the while, I was beating myself up for not having the discipline to make those changes.

If you have an issue with weight and food, you know what I mean. But no matter what issue you are currently dealing with, can I offer a bit of encouragement?

Jesus wants to help you with that issue. He really does. But you’ve got to stop beating yourself up about it and determine to follow His lead.

We like to identify our shortcomings, form them into a club, and beat the tar out of ourselves mentally. Over and over and over again. We label ourselves and soon lose our real identity to the beaten and bruised fragility we call “me.”

We compare, we assume, we assess, we measure and most times walk away shaking our head at how woefully short our “me” falls compared to everyone else. How dangerous it is to hold up the intimate knowledge of our imperfections against the outside packaging of others.

If there is one thing that living 40-plus years has taught me it’s this: All God’s girls have issues. Every single one of us.

But we can make the choice to identify our shortcomings and instead of using them against ourselves, hand them over to Jesus and let Him chisel our rough places.

The grace-filled way Jesus chisels is so vastly different than the way I mentally beat myself up.

My mental scripts are too often full of exaggerated lies that leave me feeling defeated. His chiseling is full of truth that sets me free.

Oh what a difference.

Jesus doesn’t compare.

Jesus doesn’t exaggerate.

Jesus doesn’t condemn. Our key verse, Romans 8:1, confirms this.

He simply says, “Hey, I love you. I love you just how you are. But, I love you too much to leave you stuck in this. So, let’s work on it together. You can do this.

There is something so powerful in really believing that with Jesus’ help you can do this. Say it with me, “I can.” I can is a powerful little twist for a girl feeling deprived and defeated.

I can helps me walk into the dinner party and find the conversation more appealing than the food table. I can helps me stay on the perimeter of the grocery store where the fresher, healthier selections abound and smile that I know this.

I can helps me look at the drive-thru menu and order a fruit tray without even giving a thought to the fried foods I used to snack on. I can reminds me to look online for a restaurant’s nutritional information before going out, ensuring wiser choices. I can reminds me no food will ever taste as sweet as victory does.

Having issues isn’t the absence of victory in our lives. It’s simply a call to action reminding us victory is right around the corner. Today is a great day to start believing you were made to walk in victory and to say to Jesus, “Yes, with Your truth as my guide, I can.”

Dear Lord, help me see myself the way You see me. Remove the lies that defeat me more often than I want to acknowledge. You have set me free. Help me live like I truly believe that. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:

It All Makes Sense Now…

I just want to break loose from this flesh and its sin nature. I want to be forever free from the weight of the devil’s condemnation. I don’t really quote Scripture, while The Bible is The Sword of The Spirit. God’s Word is our Sure Weapon in this daily spiritual warfare we wage.

I’ve got so many songs to sing. I think I have some bitterness still locked up within me. Daily my mind is assaulted with the lies of the enemy. Much of the time these untruths get to me, deep and far under my skin. Oh, Lord Jesus, how long?

It’s becoming more and more difficult to be separate in this world. Living faithful is an ongoing battle between the spirit and the flesh. I know in the depths of my heart, Father God, it is my greatest desire to please you and to give thanks as much as I can express for all that you have done for me. Thank you for Jesus Christ, Your only Begotten Son. My Savior. My Blessed Hope. I know He keeps His promise and that my God is the only Rock of solidarity, reliable to cling to under the sun. The Holy Bible and Word of God is the only Truth. I woke up and found out it was all a lie…like the wars and world wars I studied in High School History classes and into College. Turns out Satan really is at the top of it all. There is a systematic order of powers that be. And we are at the bottom my friends.

Jesus is coming for me. Though I feel so inadequate and that I am finishing this face poorly…I know that His Blood covers every sin. I surrendered my heart, myself to Him many years ago in my youth. I lost my mind and drifted from the fold. After living recklessly, disillusioned by the chemical imbalance and caffeine all though my twenties…at 30 I realized this is what I was created for. Not for a private practice. But for sharing the Love that has been shared with me by my Maker. My God. So you see, I do have a purpose. I have had a purpose all along. My whole 30 years of life has been lived out according to His plan. What Satan intends for harm, our Father in Heaven works out to the good for us. Nothing is wasted when you are a Child of God.

Now I have peace that I cannot explain. I still have the memories and scars from my roller-coaster of a past. The flashbacks are unpleasant but I choose freedom in Jesus. I still feel unworthy sometimes. But…Truth is…none of us are worthy. That’s why Jesus died for all of mankind.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Our Salvation is not how we are feeling. Our Salvation is in Christ. Once you give your heart to Jesus, you surrender. You ask Him into your heart, acknowledging Him to be the Son of God who died for your sins on the Cross and rose again. You choose to repent or make changes in your life to live faithful to The Lord the rest of your life. Here is an example of a prayer you can pray to receive Him right now. If your really desire to change things and experience true joy and the many blessings as His son or daughter then the time is now. However, you just can’t call upon Jesus to become a son or daughter of The Lord God Almighty in your prayer and then go about your life living for the pleasures of this world. Following Christ is not going to Church on Sundays and partying the other 6 days of the week.

Salvation is free for all. Right now you could be set free…

Also, see Romans 10:9   and Acts 2:38 King James Version.

It can really be okay. No matter what.
