HELP ME IM A MESS - INTERNAL STRUGGLES (PART TWO).

Hey everyone,

Trust you are all well

Internal battles are very dangerous and I know this very well, the internal struggles within that you do not hand over to God can do more damage than good, that is why I encourage self-checks and honesty and transparency with God – because there are times we may not always want to be open with people but we shouldn’t take that same stand point with God ever.

He created us and knows all our struggles so there is no need to try to hide anything from Him. I want to encourage you with this to know that no two days are the same, life will get tough and at times the thought of giving up seems sweeter than carrying on. But in the midst of it all we must ensure that we are surrendered to God and that any open wounds that have gone unseen must be given to God, because we are not only punishing ourselves but also those around us.

Heavy with issues but saying you are fine, does no one but only you harm. So rise above the mask lifestyle and give all to God, your hurts, your struggles, your pain. Be free – be healed – be joyful and at peace.

I had father wounds that needed healing and did struggle internally for some time and though I thought I was okay circumstances that took place caused me to sit up and really face my character and get healing and since coming out of that this year, I have never looked back.

THE DANGER OF ANGER

Hey everyone,

Trust you are all well  

Today we will be speaking about the danger of anger; before we begin we will be using the scripture below as reference-

Ephesians 4:26 ‘And don’t sin by letting anger control you, don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.’

The bible speaks clearly on anger, we are humans and we are all bound to get angry, life happens, people say and do things to try to push our buttons, and we aren’t perfect and are emotional beings. But in all of that it takes maturity to be able to not make and take decisions when you are angry, upset or sad.

Because more times you will look back and wish you had responded and made those decisions with a sound mind and clarity to act wisely. When you are in a good space, internally healthy and at peace things will fall into place and make sense.

 

Let us break down this scripture into manageable pieces-

‘AND DONT SIN BY LETTING ANGER CONTROL YOU’ – Anger has the stronghold over you to control you to do things you wouldn’t do if you were of sound mind and calmness, it will make you do things in that very moment that when you come out of it you will look back and wish you had applied wisdom.

Your emotions can control you and when acting in the flesh there is no limit to what you can do when angry because you are heated, you are feeding the flesh and you aren’t thinking logically and in turn those around you will also be affected by it.

“DONT LET THE SUN GO DOWN WHILE YOU ARE STILL ANGRY”-  Don’t let a day go by and you are still angry, when the sun goes down and night falls and we are still angry, chances are we will still feel that way the next day , hold grudges and live it out daily.

The sad thing is people look back and regret and wish they had handled things differently, but in the moment they weren’t thinking that way and let the day go by with the anger still intact. That is not the way and that doesn’t help anybody in the situation rather it makes it worse.

 

“FOR ANGER GIVES A FOOTHOLD TO THE DEVIL”- (GRIP – FOOTING)

Anger allows the devil to have a foothold in your life – so your anger opens you up to the traps of the devil, it’s in this manner that the devil is able to get a way in, to dictate your actions whilst in the anger mode, because you either have not dealt with that matter or prayed over it.

Once you are gripped by the devil, you are its tool and so to avoid that it is so important that we check ourselves daily, forgive and love easily and hold onto no grudges. We have God to help us and so we shouldn’t allow ourselves to fall short for what is most likely a temporary situation.

       REFLECTIVE POINTS-

-      CHECK YOUR HEART

-      DO SELFCHECKS DAILY

-      FORGIVE EASILY

-      PRAY MORE

-      STUDY THE WORD MORE ON THIS IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH THIS AREA

CHILDHOOD HURTS - ARE YOU REALLY DELIVERED?

     Hey everyone

Trust you are all well

Rev 21:4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” We can look forward to this, look to God in everything and get your healing to progress and not stay bound.

Today we will be talking about childhood hurts, this is something that I myself had been on a journey on once upon a time, to learn about and heal from. Because remember in life everything that we do, think or feel, most times have a root that can be linked to our past, going as far as childhood and if it is not dealt with can affect us in a major way in different friendships, relationship and with family too.

Childhood hurts for many could involve abuse – physical, mental, emotional you name it, lack of family units, bullying, self image issues, not feeling good enough etc.

The foundations that we have known, which have shaped our minds and actions to some extent, can be tainted and unhealthy. For so long that baggage of the past has then been on many people’s shoulders and the question one must ask is “are you really delivered?” Have you really let God in to deal with deeper issues of self you either don’t think about or have suppressed it for so long. To be delivered from what others did to you, as well as receiving the inner healing you so desperately need to be made whole and set free and not repeating life in cycles.

As a qualified counsellor the journey to this point has taught me so much more about people’s behaviour, their speech, feelings and view points on things. You find that a lot of people have deep wounds from parents and people from their past that have done them wrong and they have lived in the hurt for so long that they no longer know or even recognise who they are.

One thing I want to say and standby is that the moment you take your hurts to God, repent, seek forgiveness as well as forgive those who wronged you, will bring you healing, growth and a healthier mindset that no one can take the credit for. But if you do not take the steps to speak up and do what is right for you, you’ll find that you will keep staying and repeating in disappointments, self-sabotage, grudges, anger and setbacks. Don’t ever let the things of old and what people have done to you affect you so much that you lose your peace, guidance, joy and happiness.

This is not to justify or water down what you have been through, not at all. But to get you to sit up and let this post push buttons that need to be pushed and lead you back to our Father for your healing.

Playing the victim never gets anyone anywhere, it only keeps you stagnant wanting sympathy and when that is not shown you react and think everyone is against you. No special one- that is toxic living and you need to receive the deliverance that will take you from where you are now to a better, more fulfilling place in Christ.

This topic has been heavy on my heart for while, probably more now than before because I counsel people and see and feel the pain when they share things.

Let this be a starting point to get you thinking and take all hurts back to God and if you believe you are okay, still go back to God and ask Him to show you your heart and if here is anything you need to let go of.

Praying for you all and pray that this post will convict you and get you closer to Abba Father to help you heal and move forward in a healthier way.

 

Loving you in prayer

WHERE ARE YOU OPERATING FROM?

Hey everyone,

Trust you are well

It’s been a while, but we are back with new and fresh content and pray it will bless you.

I want to share this with you and pray it encourages you to dig deeper and do more. So recently on my journey one evening, God gave me this amazing analogy using my car.

I had to move to the far left for the cars opposite me to be able to pass and as I did that I heard the Lord say clearly to me that ‘If I decided not to move and give way to the cars ahead, all the cars behind me will be stuck. And as a leader that’s not how to act, we must act in accordance to what is right, so that those behind us can learn, be equipped and move not stay stagnant.’

At the time, in that moment, hearing this message I was able to take away a lot from this and was really encouraged. Because we know that working with people at times, let alone leading in what God has called you to lead in, can at times take its toll it is not always a smooth ride.

BUT we need to be made aware that it is not about us, but those we are called to serve and helping them as led by God is key. Because let’s face it, the actions we do today is what those who are behind us will look at and follow. We are ambassadors here on earth for Christ, doing what He has called us to do and so we need to reflect on-

-      How do you lead those God has called you to?

-      Where are you operating from? The spirit or the flesh?

-      What is your focus?

-      What are your struggles?

I just wanted to leave you all with this, to bless and encourage you to do more and be bold in what you do, as God is always in control and loves you very much to lead you on the right path.

Stay blessed and speak soon
