Painful Pasts And Addictions

If you don’t get the infection out of a wound it never completely heals.

If we keep using alcohol, drugs, sex, food or love Addiction to escape the pain, that we are afraid to face, we never heal completely.

There might be a temporary healing, it might form a scab of sorts but if infection is still present, even a tiny bit, it will fester and cause us trouble and pain over and over again.

It takes a conscious effort on our parts to find out exactly what the root of our pain is. It takes getting in and staying in the Word of God. It takes sincere heartfelt prayer asking God to show us the place where depression and emotional pain took root in our spirits. Once we understand where that place of pain originated we can then face it and get it out of our life.

We have to make peace with all the parts of our lives. No ones life is perfect. Bad things may have happened but Praise God they are over now! We made it through them.

Constantly dwelling on past hurtful memories will cause us to stay stuck in a place where we don’t move forward because we are still concentrated on the past.

In order to move forward we have to face the bad memories and look at them fully. We then say, “Past you no longer have a hold on me. What happened, happened. I see it, but I let it go because it no longer defines my life. The Word of God says I am a NEW creation.”

2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version (NIV)

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here!

You, beloved, have the power through Christ, Jesus, to overcome you past and to quit letting it have any control over your current life. When the hurtful thoughts come you choose to dismiss them with thoughts, instead, of the wonderful future God has planned for you.

The choice is YOURS. You no longer have to keep letting the past infect today or tomorrow. Let the wound be healed. Look forward now to the glorious future that can be yours. You know the past was a dark, unhappy place of defeat. Why do you choose to keep visiting it?

I feel impressed to say to you today that some of you are your own worst enemies. You must make a choice daily to walk in abundant new life. You must make a choice to be committed totally to putting the old behind you and daily doing what it takes to get you to your promised land.

If any of your addictions really helped you would not be feeling bad now. There is a big difference between numbing pain and healing pain. God wants you to know TODAY is your day to walk free from Addiction. Today is the day you and God find the strength to move on. You are the only one that can change things. Make up your mind to walk into your glorious future. Tell God you are ready to put the hurt and pain behind! As you do so door after door will miraculously open in front of you!

Compassion

When a person has such intimate knowledge of how you are hurting and what you are going through it’s because they too have experienced pain. Emotionally and/or physically.

Compassion is only learned from having been there too, in one way or another.

When I read something written by someone who can relate so well with hurting people I know they have intimate knowledge of pain.

Jesus had a human experience on this earth so, while in a suit of flesh, He could experience human emotions.

A Prophetic Dream 03/27/2019

I had a dream last night of strong winds that swept the globe. Interestingly enough the winds were not tornadoes but gusts of wind that came up suddenly and were more destructive then tornadoes. There was no warning.

They were happening in places never seen before.

It was around dinner time, I heard tremendous wind. I looked outside and saw neighbors mattresses, furniture, bicycles strewn everywhere and people crying and looking dazed as if they didn’t understand what had happened.

We were completely safe and not a hair on our heads was damaged. At our front door, as I looked down was a basket of figs. Not a blemish on them, as if an angel of God had placed them there.

Interpretation that God gave me just now.

Daughter, prepare yourself. The blood of the innocents has grieved my heart. The things that happen on a daily basis are grievous and unspeakable. I am going to sweep the earth with catastrophe. I have to use it as a way of bringing people to their knees. I have always used things I control, rains, wind, earthquakes to cleanse and awaken people of the earth.

My children will have a cloak of safety around them. Not a hair on their heads will be touched. People will know that these are the children of God. Remember Daniel? He was in My will. Not one of the Lions touched Him. These experiences will be everywhere for my children living daily in my will!

The fig Basket represents the withered fig tree. Anyone who lives only to himself is of no use in these last days. They give lip service but they are still living only to please themselves centered on money and possessions. Daughter, you have seen how worthless these things are. I have had to reduce you to nothing to correct your obsession with earthly possessions. Now you bloom forth with a sweet fragrance after having learned what is truly important is your relationship with me. Our relationship produces fine, blemish free fruit. I deliver a fresh basket to your door, my beloved, each day. It is symbolic of the Word my people share to encourage and help others. Those who do so will always be blessed.

Amen.

Do You Know You Are Really Beautiful?

“So, God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God, he created them; male and female he created them.”

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14

I often think about my friend from where I once worked, Rita, when I think of lessons God taught me about low self esteem.

Rita was beautiful. A petite Spanish woman with thick beautiful brown hair and big brown eyes, she had people’s attention when ever she walked by.

She was one of the hardest working people I had ever met. She worked her first job from six o’clock to 2pm and then went to work as a beautician in a nice shop from 3pm to six pm.

We became friends after the Lord gave me a Word for her one day. She was drawn to the things of God and God used me to mentor her. A single mom, she bought her first home from the sweat on her brow.

I was fascinated by the fact that her self-esteem was so low. I could not figure out why, with all she had going for her, she always thought she was unattractive.

The day came when she was having a party to celebrate her new home. I was excited to meet her sisters and brother.

It was that day when all I needed to know about her low self esteem was revealed to me by God.

Her mother and father were divorced and her father, a very handsome and successful man, simply adored Rita. She was clearly his favorite.

When I saw her sisters I was shocked. Even though she thought she was the ugly duckling of the family, none of them compared with Rita.

I begin to watch their interactions and I heard all the put-downs coming out of their mouths towards Rita who, like Cinderella, was waiting on them hand and foot.

Then God said to me, “Cathie do you see how hurtful words can be? These people were so jealous of Rita that they put her down her whole life. The poisonous words took root in her spirit and she believed them. Watch your Words my child! They have the power to destroy potential.”

So I ask you today dear reader, Is your low self esteem rooted in reality or is it a product of jealous people trying to put you down to squash your potential? Have you believed lies about yourself that have been spoken over you your whole life?

What if you are the beautiful butterfly God says you are? Beloved, spread your wings and FLY.

The Evil Tongue

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21

Words are so often used as weapons. I believe that words used by bullies and abusers carry with them a pain that lasts longer then that of physical abuse.

I have recently started a YouTube channel. For most it would be no big deal but for me it was a case of surrendering all my insecurities to God.

As an adult I can still remember some of the cruel things my mother said that were stinging to my soul.

When I was about five or six years old we were shopping in a department store when one of my mothers friends saw her. Evidently they had lost contact after high school. The woman said to my mother, “What a pretty little girl you have!” My mother answered, “Well she’s not pretty but she is a sweet little girl.”

Those words, and many others, she said led to a lifetime of low self esteem caused by her words. Later on I married a man who was extremely verbally abusive, often making fun of me in front of others.

Recently I saw online a woman who told the story of how she escaped domestic violence. She may have escaped physical abuse but the man she is married to now is verbally abusive.

The basis of most of our insecurities start in childhood where people, who haven’t submitted their tongues to Jesus, are used by Satan to destroy our potential. We often marry abusive people because it feels comfortable to us because of what we have put up with our whole life.

Starting that YouTube channel was hard. It’s not like a selfie that you can photoshop. What you are is what people see. When God directed me to start the channel I wrestled with it because of insecurities about my looks. Finally I realized that if it is for the glory of God it will be taken care of by God. Truthfully it has been so freeing to finally let people see the real me!

Watch the words you use. Are we building people up or tearing them down with our tongues. Pray for God to tame your tongue around your children. Are you blessing them or are you cursing them. What you say is what you get. Don’t allow anyone to speak death in the life of your child.

In His Unconditional Love,

How To Control The Thoughts Satan Puts In Your Mind

When God delivered me from depression He taught me that my depression was now my choice. The mind is our battlefield and it’s Satans favorite battlefield because he loves to put thoughts in our mind to bring us down.

When Jesus was in the wilderness Satan came to Him with little taunting to try to get Jesus to sin.

For instance in Luke 4:3

New Living Translation

Then the devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become a loaf of bread.”

Now what does Jesus do? He comes back with the Word of God.

New Living Translation

But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

So THATS how God wants us to combat Satans assault on our minds!

Watch the thoughts that come into your mind today and use the Word against them!

WooHoo Satan you are a defeated foe! Later dude! 😁

Hateful Christians

Galatians 6:1-2

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

 

Romans 12:15

Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.

I find it very hard to ask for prayer. As an retired ordained womens’ minister, and also a counselor, I am usually the one doing the prayer and counseling of others. However, and I am sure this will come as no shock to most of you, I too find myself in need of prayer and counseling from time to time.

God tells us we are to bear one another’s burdens when we are asked.

What we are not to do is give the Christian who has been brave enough, and humble enough, to ask for help an egotistical “ I am perfect and you obviously are not,” reply.

A person told me once that he had gotten to the point where he felt badly about asking for prayer. He said one woman said pointedly to Him, “The Holy Spirit is your counselor!” Then another man said to Him, “Take you burdens to the Lord, son!”

We are at a time in the body of Christ when we make other Christians feel like they are out of step with God when they ask us for prayer one to one!

Saying things like the ones above just pour added guilt on a man or woman of God when asking, out of desperation, for help.

God spoke to me once about using scripture as a weapon. He said, “Don’t do that again because I know your heart, you are trying to use my Word to put that person down!”

Jesus was patient and kind with “sinners.” Yes, we can see if a person is out of Gods will, often by the way they are living. The last thing we want to do is be so rude in telling them what God says about it, in a hateful way, that the person doesn’t lovingly trust us to guide them back to Christ.

God told me to encourage people, that are out of Gods will. That way we can loving lead them back to righteousness by our love expressing the unconditional love of Christ.

When I was backslidden there was a semi-retired minister of God who I worked with. He asked me if I was living with my boyfriend at the time. I said, “Yes.” He said “ Cathie, I love you in the Lord but that’s called fornication and you folks need to get married.” He then left it alone.

Every time he would see me he would say something like, “Baby girl, God loves you!” It started wearing on my conscience because of his love and patience with me. Eventually we got married and he was the pastor that married us. Had he said, “You are a sinner living like the devil and Gods going to send you to hell,” I would have avoided him like the plague.

My point in all of this is simply this, we need to approach folks with love and kindness, meet their needs and not act like demons from hell when approached by folks.

We cannot be mean and ugly to people and expect them to see God in us. The world is full of mean, angry people that are full of judgment. We need to be merciful and lovingly help those who are hurting.

Satan Masquerading As A Christian

I prayed about this. I wondered whether to share this or not. I slept on it, I believe God wants me to share it. I am entering deeper and some strong demons have been unleashed on me this week. I notice many of you have experienced the same.

Yesterday evening I went to check my FB account and a woman had left me a strange reply to my latest “Thus Sayeth Yeshua.”

First of all I am pretty sure most of my friends here know that style of Holy Spirit uttering. The majority of my friends are people who minister in churches or my different online ways.

Because of that they understand that God will often give me a message during one of my prayer and praise sessions.

These messages are from the Father for me and my friends. I start it on my own, Thus Sayeth Yeshua, and then I am simply a scribe for Him, as I write down what he tells me.

I had a strange feeling come over me as I got a recent friend request. I am careful and only took on the person because we had a mutual friend.

To make a long story short I had not dealt with a demonic presence like her in years.

She totally shredded me. Some of the things she said were that I am not saved, I am religious, I am sanctimonious , according to her. It went on in a psychotic rage. I knew it was a demon working through her. I was reading it all to Chuck as it was late and we were in bed. She seemed to be having an alcoholic or drug fueled breakdown. It was painful to read.

Her FB page looks contrived. I did a lot of research and she supports some far left people on Twitter. She’s a leftist herself and I think she masquerades as a Christian to argue with Christians.

I blocked her but at least one friend from here has her on their FB friends list too. That’s why I took her because it said that on her friend request list. I am warning that person you are hosting a demon on your friends list!!

It was if it Satan was using her mouth to try and hurt me. Even knowing who was behind it, her cruel words hurt me so badly that I stayed up praying and trying to let it go until 2:30 this morning.

There are ravenous wolves in the camp. Please use the Spirit of discernment to weed them out. I have her name if anything similar has happened to any of you Message me. I will give you her name.

I ask for your prayers. I know God is surrounding me with angels and, though it painful, no weapon formed against me will prosper.

Do You Need A Money Miracle?

Are there some of you who are believing the Lord for a certain amount of money? I mean it might be for a bill, a business, your house payment or your car payment, some specific amount that you desperately need?

I am feeling like you are believing for the largest amount you have ever believed for and you are trying to build up your faith and you have no idea how God is going to do it for you but you are still believing regardless of what it looks like in the natural.

We can believe for gas money or food money but this is different. Now most of us tell God, “you know as soon as you bless me Lord, I am going to bless Sister so and so or brother so and so.”

But I have learned, in order to really get Gods attention we have to give when it’s the hardest to do so. The widows mite moved Gods hand. Elijah asked for bread from a widow who only had enough for herself and her son for one more day and yet she gave and from that day forward the Bible said she never went hungry again.

When you open your hand and give to somebody else in need God will open his and give to you too.

Find someone else in need and if all you have is a sandwich give them half of it! Then watch God move in your behalf too!

1 Kings 17:7-16 New International Version (NIV)

Elijah and the Widow at Zarephath

7 Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. 8 Then the word of the Lord came to him: 9 “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.” 10 So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, “Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?” 11 As she was going to get it, he called, “And bring me, please, a piece of bread.”

12 “As surely as the Lord your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread—only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it—and die.”

13 Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. 14 For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.’”

15 She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family. 16 For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah.

The Peace Of A Renewed Mind

If you’ve been following me for very long you probably know that I went through a period of God renewing my mind.

I had been through so much earlier on in my life, that I was experiencing a lot of what I would call paranoid thinking. I had read the book Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. I had come to the conclusion that my mind needed to be renewed. You probably know the Scripture in Romans 12:2 says “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

I can remember the exact day I was sitting in front of my computer and out of the blue Satan put a thought in my mind. I begin to think on that thought and the more I thought about it, the more I begin to get this whole scenario going on in my mind about what I thought was going on in the situation. The more I thought about it the more my imagination went wild.

Suddenly, God spoke to my mind, “Cathie none of this that you are thinking is true. You think it’s true because it happened to you in another situation. Cathie, Satan is having a heyday with your mind.”

God begin to teach me that the thoughts we think expand. In other words if we are worried about something and we dwell on that, before you know it our thoughts are completely out of control. Not to mention that demons are attracted to worry thoughts and when we worry every demon in hell shows up to try to destroy our mind.

God begin to teach me to control my thoughts. When worry thoughts began to bombard my mind, I began to say to myself STOP. Then immediately I would force my mind to go somewhere else. I would turn on a move, I would play a game or I would read a book. Two thoughts cannot exist in our minds at the same time. It’s up to us to take control of our minds.

We may have spent a whole lot of time worrying about things. So we’re going to have to take time to renew our minds. Worry is a choice. We can just as easily choose not to worry.

We need to pray for God to help us renew our minds. God will meet us right where we are and help us to renew our minds. Once we’ve been doing it for a while we begin to feel overwhelming peace in the midst of problems, simply by not getting into worry about them.

I am convinced that every single occasion to sin in starts in our mind. For instance I noticed that when I’m trying to lose weight I might start thinking about a wonderful hot fudge sundae. I begin to see it in my mind, I imagine the creaminess of the ice cream and that wonderful chocolatey taste of the hot fudge. If I don’t stop that thought, it will eventually lead to me eating a hot fudge sundae.

If we do not let God teach us how to control our minds, even we Christians can get in all kinds of trouble. Trusting God is the antidote to worry, a spirit of imaginations and of fear that these things in our mind cause us to have. In Matthew 6:25 Jesus commands us not to worry.

If we have spent years letting our minds control us it may take a while, but with constant practice we can renew our minds.

There is a peace that God gives that passes all understanding but we will never find that peace until we make the choice to let God renew our minds.

In His Unconditional love,

Cathie
