    Happy Holidays!

    Practicing the habit of giving thanks is good for us. Some say gratitude is the best attitude.

    I am thankful for you! Thank you for following this blog and/or following the author page. You are appreciated.

    I hope during this season you are filled with joy and gratitude.

    I Am Sending You Love This Holiday!

    For some, the holidays are a time of stress or sadness. Some are facing challenges and uncertainty. If that’s you, I am thinking of you. You are absolutely not alone. My hopes are your soul is saturated with hope; hope there are better days ahead than behind you!

    Perspective Gained From Street Mission

    One of the things I do on the side is volunteer at the free clinic and I take out teams to feed and clothe the homeless monthly. This past weekend we encountered a man eating out of the garbage. He was so hungry. He was grateful to receive several sandwiches and a bookbag full of food/supplies. I thought to myself, “How fortunate we are, those who are not eating out of the garbage and have family or friends that would take us in during crisis.”

    I spent part of October in Cambodia serving in the slums. Children and adults live amongst the garbage and have much less than they need.

    The man we encountered in the park lost his job, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and was living on the streets-eating out of the garbage.

    There is a quote I love, it says the following-“If we cannot be thankful for what we have, we can give thanks for what we have been spared.”

    I tell you these two stories in case you are searching for something to give thanks for this season. I certainly do not wish to minimize any struggles you may be facing.

    God cares about every detail of our lives, whether it’s homelessness, losing a loved one, joblessness, hurt, betrayal, tragedy, gross disappointment, or just loneliness.

    God cares! God sees!! God loves you!!!

    Here is a prayer and encouragement I placed on Facebook today:Encouragement & Prayer Video .

    I hope you are blessed by the 2.5 minute encouragement.

    I hope you seize the moment this holiday and enjoy it! I hope you look for someone else to bless and help. Sometimes it’s in looking outside our circumstances to another that we find greater perspective.

    This year has presented a few challenges personally and in my family. Continuing to look for others to serve has brought great perspective. I am not eating out of the garbage. I don’t have cancer nor have to sleep outside. I can thank God for what I have been spared and have compassion on those suffering.

    What are you thankful for this season? Write it down or speak it out.

    I am speaking life over you. I am declaring goodness over your life.

    May this be one of the best seasons ever! 🙂

    Be sure to stop by the Empowered & Free store this Friday for our Black Friday sale. Everything is 40% off. You don’t want to miss this. This is the last mega sale like this until 2019. Our Freedom Key collection only has a few items left. Once they sell out, those pieces may not come back. Get your holiday gifts on sale.

    Created for Wholeness!

    Part of what I do, aside from write books, is help people get healed from wounds of gross trauma, abuse, abandonment, rejection, and deep soul wounding.

    I never thought I would be doing what I do. I simply could not understand why there were so many wounded people in churches and in the world who were not getting better from popping pills or cognitive (talk) therapy or just reciting the Bible. Mostly, I wondered why some people were physically healed and others were not.

    God invited me on a several year journey into studying the soul (mind, will, and emotions). The body, soul, and spirit are connected. An injury to one can impact the others. I saw there were people with deep emotional wounds from trauma, abuse, mistreatment who were suffering greatly in their bodies.

    After years of training with Dr. Kraft and Dr. Bitcon, I embarked on teaching, training, and facilitating sessions with people to help them step into greater freedom with God.

    I have worked with people who are highly dissociative (have multiple personalities) and those so traumatized parts of their lives have been limited. I love seeing God bring freedom.

    I also do a yearly MasterClass to train others to do what I do. There are loads of traumatized and wounded people in the world who need help, freedom, and hope. I have even used these methods with children.

    God loves to heal! We were created for wholeness, not fractured living.

    If you are struggling with PTSD, wounds of trauma/abuse/abandonment/rejection-I would love to invite you to join me December 1, 2018 at 11am EST for a webinar on Freedom from Trauma!

    God wants us free!

    We Can Change the World!

    When we look at the news we see people fighting, mass shootings, hate crimes, rumors of war, poverty, injustice, bullying, name calling, and so many things that are not loving our neighbor. We can blame mental illness or look at the real issue, insecurity. We will not love our neighbor if we do not love ourselves. At the root of all abuse, lack of value for life, racism, sexism, and mistreatment of others is insecurity! There is a cure that does not involve popping pills and years of therapy! Read more here!!

    Becoming Like Jesus

    Happy Transformed Through Worship Sunday!

    Worship is more than singing songs, it is a heart posture of yieldedness to God. It is a surrender in intimacy of all that we are to all that He is. Worship is not about us and what we like. It’s about loving a King! He is worthy of the worship that causes His heart to dance. Lord may we love you, who you really are, not a “god” made in our own image-created in our imagination to suit our needs and wants.

    We become like the gods or God we worship.

    We will imitate the God we know. It is quite simple to worship a “god” created in our own image instead of the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. Traditions of men, our own ideals, and things we have been taught can replace intimacy/abiding relationship with God. The gods we worship write their names on our faces, and our rhetoric will sound like the one or ones we worship. Our mouths speak what our hearts are full of and only unity with God’s heart produces agape (sacrificial, unselfish, compassionate love). We will smell like where we have been. The aroma of heaven invades true worship. Only the true worship of God for who He is will reproduce disciples who love, live, and behave like Jesus (John 15:4-5).

    Love,

    The Ministry of Jesus

    Morning Thoughts: The Ministry of Jesus & Heart of God (Isaiah 61 Reflection). Comforting those who mourn is just as important to God as physical healing.

    Certainly still on Cambodia time. That’s okay, I will get back to my time zone eventually.

    Awakened an hour ago thinking about the example of Jesus. Jesus only did what He saw the Father doing and only said what He heard Him speaking. Jesus did not feel the need to prove His diety. “Come watch how many miracles I can perform to show you how great I am!” Yes His ministry demonstrated the great love and power of God, yet His motivation was not to gain the applause of people nor boost His ego. His motivation was to honor the Father, bring glory to the Father, and demonstrate compassion. Jesus was moved with compassion and healed the sick.

    Jesus did more than heal the sick in body. Jesus healed the souls of people, comforted those who mourned, gave hope to the hopeless, ministered to the outcasts and displaced of society, spoke life, delivered the oppressed, spoke truth in love, and everything else aligned with Isaiah 61.

    Our culture can be hyper focused on one aspect of God’s nature, and ignore equally as important parts of His attributes.

    I love the ministry of Jesus was and is focused on loving people in whatever capacity is needed at the moment. He comes in with love to heal the body, love to heal the soul, love to comfort those who mourn, love to wipe tears, love to give the perfect gift, love to provide family and blessings, love to demonstrate radical generosity, love to hold a hurting person, love to befriend a lonely person, love to impart courage, love to sacrifice even when we have a need, love to get low instead of position ourselves high, love to work behind the scenes, love to elevate instead of diminish, love to pursue what is best for another.

    I love that Jesus lived out of this place of extreme security in His identity. He knew when to be bold and when to be quiet. He knew when to lead and when to submit and follow. He knew when to be with the crowds and when to steal away with the Father. He knew when to step forward and when to pull back. Jesus, beautiful Jesus, operated out of radical confidence. He knew His true identity was approval already given by the Father. He walked in boldness and great humility. He could speak with great authority and profound gentleness.

    Jesus is my role model and best friend. If I am to emulate anyone, may it be Jesus. I see through Isaiah 61 the multifaceted heart of God. Comforting those who mourn was and is just as important as sharing the Gospel.

    Isaiah 61:1-9

    The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,

    To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

    To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

    And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.

    Aliens shall stand [ready] and feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

    But you shall be called the priests of the Lord; people will speak of you as the ministers of our God. You shall eat the wealth of the nations, and the glory [once that of your captors] shall be yours.

    Instead of your [former] shame you shall have a twofold recompense; instead of dishonor and reproach [your people] shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double [what they had forfeited]; everlasting joy shall be theirs.

    For I the Lord love justice; I hate robbery and wrong with violence or a burnt offering. And I will faithfully give them their recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with them.

    And their offspring shall be known among the nations and their descendants among the peoples. All who see them [in their prosperity] will recognize and acknowledge that they are the people whom the Lord has blessed.

    God cares about every detail of a person’s life, it all matters. I love that Jesus knew and understands love is the highest aim of the Kingdom!

    Once I gain my bearings, I will share with you some of the amazing things God did in Cambodia. God is so good!

    Handling Unfulfilled Promises

    Sarah & Unfulfilled Promises (Devotion)

    I am discouraged by people who make fun of Sarah. She laughed at God. So did Abraham, yet his issues are often overlooked. People who have not suffered in God’s waiting room, just from my experiences, are clueless the pain it brings. Imagine wanting a child and he shows up when you are 10 years away from death. It makes a great story, that’s because we are not the ones who must live the process. The same with the woman with the issue of blood. It’s great to celebrate the miracle, people can forget her 12 years of extreme suffering.

    There are the parades of Christians who quote Scripture to those suffering, tell them to just trust God, while they walk past them with the promises they did not have to wait long for nor contend for long. They have no experience in the waiting rooms of disappointment, no after no from physicians, the disdain and judgement of their peers for not possessing something society says makes you valuable. “If you just had enough faith and believed God, then everything in your life would be perfect.” Well, no. Jesus stated in this world there would be troubles, yet take heart, He overcame the world. The early disciples of Jesus suffered greatly. Many were martyred for their faith, some tortured. Jesus suffered greatly. I do not know of anyone with more faith than Jesus.

    My prayer is we cease telling people if they just believe enough, fast enough, pray enough, tithe enough that they will live in heaven on earth. Heaven is not simply a place. It is a person. God offers Himself to stand with us through the trials and disappointments of life.

    Some people have no grid for suffering over hope deferred, therefore their counsel lacks genuine God compassion.

    Some will tell you to settle and give up the dream! Some will grow tired of your waiting and avoid the topic or avoid you. Some will bombard you with every “Christian” phrase of God keeps His promises. You may even get a Jeremiah 29:11 sticker to put on your window. People quote to you, yet is rare to find one that will wrap their arms around you in compassion and weep with you.

    Everyone is okay talking negatively about Sarah and desperation, yet unless you have walked through painful waiting and seasons of profound disappointment, it is impossible to speak into the life of another waiting and being seemingly denied over and over.

    There is a compassion that is built during suffering that can not be simply imparted. It must be learned through experience. It is not a mantle for everyone. It is for some.

    A woman’s worth…

    It’s 2018 and I feel the pressure to be a wife and mom. It’s one of the first things Christian women ask other women. Then it’s, “Well don’t you want to be married? Don’t you want kids?” People feel at liberty to stick their nose in your business where it does not belong. I wonder if they ever think, “Maybe this person was married and their spouse died. Maybe they were told they can’t have children. Maybe me prying into their personal life is intrusive, rude, and unkind.” So I cannot even imagine what it must have been like for Sarah. She lived in a time and culture where barren women were seen as cursed, less than, shamed, and the inability to produce an heir was looked down upon by society. Oh Sarah!

    Desperation and despair can be bedfellows of prolonged waiting for a promise. You can fast, pray, decree, dance around the mountain and still hurt. You can worship, appreciate God, believe God can, and still hurt. You can hope and still hurt. Why? Prolonged waiting followed by repeated disappointment, can still bring heartache.

    I wish so very much in Christianity we could be like Jesus and Paul and be honest. Jesus was in anguish facing the cross. He knew the Father was good. He was still human and understood His flesh was about to be ripped from His body. He knew and believed the promise. He still felt the depths of agony of what He would walk through, and not be delivered from facing. Paul faced incredible challenges to which He responded with honest expression. He stated there were times they were almost pressed to the point of giving up.

    If you are like Sarah, it’s okay to process your pain, disappointment, and true heart condition with God. You don’t have to pretend to be a super hero for God. God knows it hurts and stings more than anyone. You may be watching others enjoy their promise and you have been waiting, waiting, waiting. Maybe you have endured the insensitive Christian or just slap a verse on it. Maybe you are beyond tired. Maybe your heart is breaking. Maybe you have been pushed to the point of utter desperation.

    I am not going to quote scripture to you. I am not going to tell you to trust God. I am not going to tell you to do the Christian things that are sometimes tools to try to manipulate God. I am going to tell you that God loves you and Jesus understands the depths of your sorrow. I am going to tell you it’s okay to gently tell people to mind their own business or you are not accepting their poor counsel. It is okay to rest. It’s okay to cry. Jesus wept. It’s okay to process the pain instead of stuffing it inside. It’s okay to be human. It’s okay to escape the mobs of people to just process with God. It’s okay!

    I hope this helps someone today process pain and step into greater freedom. Giving people permission to be human is powerful.

    Disclaimer:

    Also this post is NOT about me wanting a child or spouse. Please DO NOT try to set me up, email me about someone, etc…I wrote this post because I am examining the process of desperation and suffering. I have promises that are NOT related to marriage and family that are long standing. I add this disclosure because some people think unmarried means marriage is all you want or think about or view you as a project to marry off. No! No! No!! Just putting it out there to save myself some drama and people sticking their nose in my personal life. One of the biggest promises I am contending for is the salvation of my entire family.
