What if it’s you?

Winning Wednesday- it could be someone has wronged you and you are upset deep inside where no one can see it. Maybe it’s so deep you can’t see it. Maybe it’s you who have wronged another. Friend, remember that you have both been forgiven. #BEBRAVER and Agree with His mercy that triumphed over His judgement – and yours. Love-d 

 

Triumph Over a Bad Day

Motivating Monday

Yes. They are talking about you. Again. Fix your thoughts on Him. Somebody else ratted you out. Fill your thoughts with good. They passed you by on promotion day. Watch Him change your future. You just vented to somebody with more words than they needed. Praise Him. You have thoughts from a gutter. Press through with thoughts from heaven. You feel confused and forgotten. Govern your private world with his ideas. You are ALIVE. Let the spirit of your mind be inundated with heaven. Fill your business with Him. Fill thoughts for yourself with GOOD!!  Fill your friendships with good. It may have started as a bad day, but you choose to triumph over evil with good. See you- out there where our thoughts become words. Let the words be from heaven!  You are more than a conqueror! You are triumph!!

Nowhere to Run

I grew up with a sister who wanted to love me but didn’t know how. She wanted to be loved and accepted just as I did; yet she too was unable to find a safe place for her heart. Frankly, I can say the same about sister number 3 and sister number 4 (who has now moved to heaven) – none of them were cared for in a way that made them feel loved, protected, cherished or honored. We were among the many dysfunctional families who did not know how to love or be loved and we had nowhere to run as wherever we ran – there we were. Even talking aloud was an issue because the fear of being verbally rejected was so strong. We wrote letters to each other to ask questions or confront issues. After I gave my life to Jesus, my sisters really wanted nothing to do with me – more than usual. Over time, the Lord melted their hearts and brought them out of their mindset of hatred, not only of me but also of  others. We were being set free. Through the power of consistent love and persistent prayer, each sister embraced love and embraced loving and being loved. Each can now tell you that His Love truly is a force that is stronger than death. Each one belongs to Him.

Never give up on your loved ones who seem to have turned their backs on you. It is not personal! They just need the real love of a tangible God Who loves them unconditionally. So, learn to love those unlovables who scare or intimidate you, and find yourself winning their hearts over to the Lord. Do not allow yourself to be a victim of hate and do not treat others as victims of hate. Let’s Pray together below!

Pray with me

Father, I have let the way others have treated me affect the way I treat myself as well as other people. God, I desire to see them and me through Your eyes so that I can forgive and go on. Jesus, where I have been a victim of hate and where those who have harmed me were victims of hate – God, I CRY OUT TO YOU! Help us oh God for we want to be like You! Surround me with people who have been healed by Your Holy Spirit and understand real pain. I love You and need You to heal my heart and soul and body in Jesus name.

Share with someone who can help others not be a victim of hate.

The shelter of pain

My siblings grew up under the shelter of pain, rejection, beatings and misunderstandings. We were not the Christ filled, love centered home. We had a daddy who had grown up in the depression in a household where you got three bullets and a gun and your grocery store was located in the nearby forest. If you came back with only 1 bullet, the rule was that you had to also come back with two rabbits. Dad had been brought up by a mom who had been married and divorced nine times before her death at 91. So, he never knew the loving kindness of a father figure. He only knew the betrayal and abandonment of one woman and nine men. Our dad was a drill instructor in the navy, back when beating the troops was just a part of the day-to-day training. Our mom was born in obscurity and embarrassment and poverty. Because of her own shame, rejection and abandonment issues, she rarely stood up to the violence and anger alcohol brought into the home. So, it is understandable that all my sisters knew how to give was the very thing they had been given – abuse. Our parents had each been a victim of hate and us kids too had each been a victim of hate.

But we did not have to remain victims. There is a place inside where you grab hold of Truth and become victorious. You must decide today to #BEBRAVER than ever and get free from your past. Your past does not have to be your today. Your parent’s abuse is not your today. Grab hold of God and let God’s Truth give you a new today. Today, you turn to victory in Jesus name. Let it be.

Victim of Hate no more

NO LONGER A VICTIM!

The Work of an Enemy

As a little girl I found out that no matter what I did to please my sister, it was never enough. It was my heart’s desire for her to love me. Inside my mind were the thoughts of the enemy saying to me how much my sister did not want me and how much I was unwanted by everyone in our family. All these were lies. I did whatever I could to get her attention and gain her acceptance. My heart desperately wanted to be with my sister. My thoughts lead me into wanting to be her tag-a-long, because I wanted her to accept and love me! Unfortunately, no matter how I attempted to show her how much I loved her, it never worked. The enemy had poisoned her mind toward me and without realizing it, she wanted nothing to do with me and so no matter what I did to “make her love me”, it was never enough. She was a victim and I was too.

Before I go on, I want to explain to you that her hate for me was an unseen enemy who planted and lived and desired to destroy not just me but her as well. Think about it. She believed she hated me and because she hated me, I believed lie number 1: I had no worth. And that just served to add to my growing belief about lie number 2: no one loved me. Now, listen, this was not a plot just against me – this was a plot against her. The hate she felt toward me was also how she felt about herself and it was not really how she felt….it was a system put in place by an enemy….if darkness can convince us we have no worth, then we will live as if we have none. This woman – my sister – overcame this darkness and she has tremendous worth and sees my worth and EVEN sees the worth of those who seem to hate her. WOW. What a turn around.

This mentality of believing I had no worth and that no one loved me ruled my life, until I dealt with it at the cross. This is the same cross my sister came to that changed her from a vessel of hatred to a vessel of love. However, because I was thirty when I actually committed to living my life in Him, that mindset of hatred was my safe place for the first thirty years of my life. Those feelings toward myself did not just magically leave my heart. Because of the graciousness of the Lord, the Holy Spirit enabled me to believe Him, and what He said in His Word, about others and myself, and slowly but surely my mind changed. As I grew in the Truth about myself, I also grew in the Truth about what He said about my family. The Lord gave me understanding on the whys and the hows regarding our childhood. I began to understand that though she had chosen those thoughts toward me, she was not my enemy. She too had been a victim of the enemy, just like I had been, and only needed a revelation of God’s love to turn her around. Somehow in my heart I just knew she would one day choose Him and receive His great and wonderful love for her, and that would dispel the awful hatred she had toward me. Slowly but surely I embraced his Word of Truth for me, and one of them was a key to learning how to love my sister even when she seemingly had hatred in her heart towards me.

2 Tim 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

God did not want me to be afraid! God does not want you afraid! After the Lord showed me this scripture, I had to begin to let go of fear, and I had to learn how to embrace courage! Can you embrace courage today? Can you become #Braver? Unfortunately, I had lived under the rule of fear for so long, that it was not an easy process. Fear was a best friend and it was very very difficult to embrace another attitude. But it was not impossible. I realized that fear was why my sister had not loved me! She too had been afraid of love, and she did not really truly know how to love because she had not experienced pure love either. The truth was that neither one of us knew how to love or be loved. Do you? Love and forgiveness go hand in hand. Can you forgive? Then you can love. Can you be forgiven? Then you can receive love. God gave me a picture of my sister’s heart one day, and I could see her desire to be loved, and I could see her loneliness and her fear of abandonment and all the other junk from OUR past. The Lord brought compassion for her. No longer did I take it personal when she seemed to shun or reject me, because I knew it truly had nothing to do with me! It wasn’t personal! This was an all out war for HER SOUL TOO that the enemy had begun in her very early in her life, and I just happened to be a victim of it, not the reason for it. We had both individually been a victim of hate.

Are you a victim of hate? You do not have to remain one.

Father, I pray you will come and reveal truth and let Your perception go deep within the one reading. Let your LOVE and YOUR sound mind and your power embrace this reader and let today be a new day to begin the process of freedom in Jesus name.

NO LONGER A VICTIM!

You know, it is God’s desire that we know Him, the True Truth Giver and when we live lives apart from Him, all we can know are lies. When you grow up in a family not dedicated to Truth and not committed to finding Truth, all you can find are lies, pain and many times, abuse. Such it was in our family. Each one of us was a victim of hate.

John 17:3 And this is eternal life: [it means] to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real God, and [likewise] to know Him, Jesus [as the] Christ (the Anointed one, the Messiah), Whom You have sent.

Our family did not know the one and only true and real God. We did not know the workings of eternity. We did not know that love was the way – His way to Truth and life. Our parents did not know this Love of Living and therefore we as kids did not know This One Who gave Himself for us. We were ALL victims of hate. I encourage you to make new decisions today on your today, your yesterday and your tomorrow. What if all your anger is based on your perception yet….it is your own unforgiveness toward others that keeps you trapped in remaining a victim of hate?

Father, I ask You to show us all how to look into our lives and truly see the reasons for this and the reasons for that and let each of us grab hold of Your grace that forgives and receives forgiveness. Let not one reader remain a victim of hate.

To be continued…

Send this to friends who need some help coming out from being a victim of hate.
