A little over a week ago, I posted about Reconciliation and my desire to reconcile my thoughts and beliefs about myself to what God says about me, the truth. The first lie/core belief that I decided to attack was the lie that I am unloved and unloveable. I wrote about this a few days ago.
And wouldn’t you know just how good God is that He keeps bringing it up to me.Read More
To my friends who love Jesus but struggle with anxiety and depression
Today is for you, not just you as this message applies to anyone who loves Jesus, but today you are on my heart. You are on my heart because we are the same. Because this is my struggle, too.
This picture popped back in my memories and spurred this post.Read More
On Sunday, I wrote a post about a word given to me, for me, from Jesus. The word is reconciliation. You can read about it here: https://momstronglife.com/2022/05/08/a-prophetic-word-for-me-and-maybe-you-too/
Here’s an excerpt:
I need to reconcile the lies that I have believed for so long with the truth of who I am in Jesus. I need that arrow of light to pierce the heart of the matter – my own core beliefs. It’s time to let go of the lies I was told and believed and reconcile my thoughts so they align with God’s thoughts. I need to make my thoughts compatible with God’s thoughts. I need to agree with God on who I am and what He has for me.
So, I’m going to take one lie at a time, one core belief at a time, break it down, and begin the process of truly surrendering that belief to Jesus and letting it go.Read More
So, things got good today. Good and interesting and real.
Last Sunday, I went forward to be prayed over. I have a block in my spirit, something holding me back. I am struggling with anxiety and unrest. I prayed to forgive others who have hurt me in the past. I prayed for a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit. I’ve prayed all week. I wrote a blog post saying that I choose to worship God and continue even though I feel empty and dark.Read More
I’m going through a weird season right now. An empty season. A season with more anxiety than peace, more restlessness than rest. A season that feels more like hopelessness than hopeful, more despair than delight, more illness than health.Read More
In January, I decided that my word for this year would be “identity” and that I would pursue learning and embracing my identity in Jesus. Life has been busy and it got pushed to the side, but there’s nothing to say I can’t start now.
I decided to start with this identity first – that I am a child of God. That we are children of God.
What does it mean to be a child of God?Read More
Foreward: I spent this whole blog post saying, “Ok, God… what next? What do I write next?” He literally helped form this message FOR ME so as I was writing, I was learning and hearing from Him. Just wanted to share that! This message is from Him!
I’m going through counseling again, I’ve mentioned that. A big part of this season of counseling is getting to the deep core issues of my negative beliefs. It’s an interesting journey and I haven’t shared the icky stuff yet because it feels embarrassing and, well, yucky.Read More
