I wish I could tell you that every day would be bright and sunny and everything would go smoothly, but I can’t because each day brings disruptions.
So how do we deal with life’s endless dilemmas that, at times, seem like they are choking the joy out of life and leave us feeling tired, alone, and afraid?
Whereas other days feel blessed beyond measure, and we are skipping the cobblestone-like we didn’t have a care in the world, yet oddly enough, the day before was no different than today.
The Bible says,
In Matthew 6:34,
“Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Informatively YHWY is telling us that daily troubles are a part of human life. Thus we rely on God’s positive reinforcement to see that difficulties don’t mean God has left us or that the world is ending.
Romans 15:4 is encouraging, whereas Paul says, “For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
Too often, the Bible is looked at like a skull and bones, as if our dear God would leave us words to harm us when, in fact, they have all we need.
Searching the daily scriptures is the bread, and without eating a healthy meal, of course, we will feel empty and sick.
If you went thirty days without nourishment, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you would feel tired, sluggish, and irritable. At the same time, your body would begin to look old and frail and without hope.
Furthermore, you would feel sick, and the things you used to like to do will gradually become unimportant; piece by piece, your body would fail you, and life would fall apart. Why!
It’s all because you chose not to eat. How about people who consider themselves Christian and haven’t read a Bible in years?
What about the Catholic or Christian who uses it as an idol by placing the Bible unopened on a nightstand or shelf as if the book will protect you?
The scripture’s primary purpose is to know God and not memorize the word like a school book. All scripture is breathed out by God, written by the Prophets and servants of God who penned the thoughts and visions of our heavenly Father.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV)
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
God’s word restores our sight and brings us a new vision that eases the daily ordeal of life. The reason scripture tells us to not only read it but do what it says lest we be deceived.
Do not merely listen to the word and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
A good portion of our lives is a mixture of confidence and insecurity while, at the same time, it’s laced with deception.
Satan deceives us from a very early age as he begins to chip away at the godly foundation, which is the character we are created in by the time we enter the womb.
At the same time, the scales weigh heavier to one side for those who didn’t receive the proper love and nurturing at a young age.
Throughout our lives, we rely on that love and confidence taught to us as children so that as we mature and life begins to increase in complexity, the intricacy doesn’t destroy us.
Our brains are therefore formed healthily by love and tenderness, and proper discipline, leaving the chemicals in the brain to secrete into the body evenly.
We can thus manage stress with the right coping tools, and troubles don’t turn into tornados.
In contrast, a person that didn’t receive this nurturing but was raised with violence in fear not only learns to see the worst in things but our brains are modified by the constant flight or flight response in terror, thus changing our chemical makeup and creating havoc on our nervous system.
The reason for irritability, irrational fear, doubt, short temper, excessive crying, snap judgment, and impulse reactions turn a temporary situation into a long-term battle in the mind and body.
I, like many of you, am traveling this path of healing, and as Holy Spirit gives me these words to say, my heart feels heavy, and sadness blankets me, but I know and believe in the miracles works of Christ. I have both seen and experienced them not only in my ministry but in my life, and our confidence is in Christ that we will be healed completely.
We are confident that healing is for everyone, as Exodus 15:26 tells us that God is ‘the Lord who heals us.’
Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17, and 1 Peter 2:24 tell us that Jesus, on the Cross, bore our sicknesses and carried our pains to remove them from us, and by His stripes, we have been healed.
Still, stress emphasizes the pressures of life, creating anxiety and worry and, for some, brings about physical symptoms like fatigue, depression, insomnia, and oversleeping.
Stress can also cause hair loss, weight gain or loss of appetite, and binge eating while also ghost pains and things like Fibromyalgia.
Today I want to encourage you that you are not alone. We are in this together as a body of the Church, and through Christ and with Christ, we are healed.
We only have to study, stand together, learn, pray, trust and grow in faith as we progressively do the work needed to understand who and where healing comes from and how to receive it rightfully.
I am grateful that Father is using me to help you while you navigate this windy road of awakening and healing.
At the same time, we are recovering; we are out here sharing this revelation with the homeless and the sick
God is moving!
I endured a lot of trauma in my life, and as it helps me to help you, you all are critical to me, and together we become one through Christ.
Philippians 2:2 (ESV)
Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
You are going to be alright. 💕
God Bless you,
