On a very serious note. Anyone suffering with anxiety’s and depression. Hands up if anyone can actually sit and read these or actually use them to help?? I’ll be honest the fact that I need these, my brain doesn’t take the information in or concentrate long enough to actually benefit from it.
Am I the only one that looks at this and it feels them with dread and panic?? #healthinmind#panic#anxietyhelp#cbt#amitheonlyone
Do you have a hard time RECEIVING or BELIEVING in the Goodness and Blessing of God? This is a question that has been stirring in my mind and revealing a spiritual stronghold in my life. What's a Stronghold? According to Webster Definition of stronghold
1 : a fortified place
2 a : a place of security or survival b : a place dominated by a particular group or marked by a particular characteristic
Makes me think of 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 " We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ." This verse has me thinking... Like most people, I have had some tough seasons full of really hard things in life ... Have I gone into defense mode in a way to protect myself? To even keep my faith? Have I been taken captive by a stronghold? Is it easier to believe that a walk with the Lord means that it will be hard, trying, and always a battle? And Lord knows it is HIM who has sustained me and given me inner peace through every single challenge that comes. BUT GUYS the word also says this in John 10:10
"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." ABUNDANT LIFE!! Wow Is that something I have thought would happen? Believed in? Had hope for?? Honestly it scares me to death... LIFE has been HARD for so long that I am afraid to believe that it Can be easy OR EVEN GOOD and BLESSED!! WHAT???? Can we say I might be captive in a stronghold that needs to be taken captive to Christ?? #lordhelpme
Now please hear my heart. I am not saying I should get all Name it and Claim it, or Expect GOD to be a genie in a bottle... I think most of us have discernment against such thinking... BUT do we get so worried about doing it #thisfaithlife wrong that we don't have OPEN ARMS to accept that there will be GOOD, there will BE HARVEST, There will BE HEALING, there will be RESTORATION and FREEDOM...
