Let It All Hang Out Before God

When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. Psalm 32:3-4 NIV

Some time ago, a pastor referred to the Holy Spirit as “the hound of Heaven.” He was making an analogy to describe how the Holy Spirit brings us under conviction. It seems like there are many times that we need to “unload” before God. It’s not quite the same as getting things off our chest, as is commonly said. And it goes beyond rote confessions.

I’m DONE!!

I’m not going to let my past hinder me from the greatness I know that for me, God has PREDESTINED ! God is stronger than any pain I have felt, any situation I’ve been through. Greater than any loss I’ve had to face. I was DUMB enough to let the devil fool me for waaaay too long! I already knew how GREAT and MIGHTY and POWERFUL GOD IS!! My weaknesses (fear, doubt, lack of trust, anger, resentment, pain, etc..) allowed that tired old clown to come in and water the seeds I already planted myself. I’ve been burned so bad by love, by my mother and its been horrible to my self esteem.

‘Trauma’ Getting Stuck

Trauma definition:: ‘Something that happens to us that is beyond our control that causes us to feel intense fear, horror, or helplessness; an event outside normal human experience’.
Quoted from ‘Healing Trauma’ Elijah House Teaching Series pg.4.

“My People are broken-shattered-and they put on Band-aids, saying,’Its not so bad. you’ll be just fine.’ But things are not just fine!.Jeremiah 6:14.

Veils

I scurried around the kitchen taking care of my children’s hunger while worshipping along with the music on my laptop. Suddenly I had to come to a dead halt, not knowing that MY “hunger” would be met that afternoon. Leaning onto my elbows on the counter, eyes shut ~ the One being worshipped reached down to touch me: depositing into me the only way to feed my longing to know Him more intimately.

“…the veil of the temple was torn in two.” (Luke 23:45)

“Victoria Sands” belonged to a large family who raised their own households according to their personal specific preferences. They had little to no patience for people who did not meet the standards of what they declared to have been the overall worth of a person.

Born Again

One summer day, when I was a child, I went to stay with my my cousin, who lived in a village in Manitoba (Canada), and she took me to her church. For the first time in my life I went to Sunday School and heard about Jesus and His love for me and that I had to make a choice to accept him in order to be a child of God.

This is what God has done for me

I have been cancer free for one year. My Lupus has been in remission for four months. I have had depression free days for three months. I have been anxiety free for three weeks. I have been walking God’s path through reading worship and praise for twelve years. Many times during that twelve year journey I have turned back to my old ways of worrying, over spending, disrespecting and disobeying the ones I love and lying.
