What God Told Me About Suffering

img_1613

I have learned something in the past few years. What I have learned is that sometimes people expect you to be strong when the truth is that if some of the things that have happened to you happened to them, they would fall apart and curse God.

 

I know that’s true. In the past few years I have had to be the strong one when I should not have had to be the strong one.

 

Some of you are there; you are losing your job, for the third time. Your cancer is back and you are still weak from fighting it the last time. You are getting evicted and don’t have a clue as to where you will go. You child is ill or dying and yet everyone expects you to go on like nothing is wrong.

 

I have thought a lot about that lately and I feel impressed to tell you that you cannot depend on people to hold you up. You can, depend on God. We may not feel His presence but He is with us. He loves us and He is watching us and when the time is right our breakthrough will come and those who have given up on us will be SHOCKED.

 

I have been a caretaker when, if truth was known, I should have a caretaker. I have Lupus, a Spinal Cord injury, and I take care of my husband everyday who can do very little for himself.

 

Recently, I asked for help and with the exception of a couple of friends no one has helped. That’s fine because through this God is teaching me to be stronger then I ever have been.

 

I want YOU to know, in the midst of your troubles, pay no attention to those who cockily say to you, “You tell others to believe in God, how come you can’t to that yourself.”

 

Because for some of us it seems like it’s not one thing to be discouraged about, but it’s a lot of things. Even Job, was shaken when one thing after the other came against his life. Even a man with the faith of Job, questioned God and went to his friends for help. You find out who is your friend at these times too. Most people are takers. Then need YOU to do something for them. They need you to pray for them, but when it’s you with the problem, they find a way to shut you down.

 

I have been seeking God about these things. Like Job, I will never stop loving and worshipping God.

 

Yesterday God told me to start getting real with these blogs. He said, “There are millions out there like you, Cathie. Millions who think they cannot go on another day. He said, “I told you the last days would be like this. I told you that in the last days it would be hard to stand, but those who do will be with me in eternity.”

 

God said the following, “There are those of my children who are desperate for hope. They cannot get it from other Christians because a lot of my children believe that those who have troubles MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG. Therefore so many end up committing suicide from a lack of help. I have put you in these dire situations so that you will understand exactly how they feel.”

 

God told me “Continue your blog and get real with people. I am angry with my children who live in comfort and luxury and yet refuse to help others. I am sick of them and I am going to turn these things around. I want you to let these hurting ones know, I am here for everyone, but the hurting are especially close to my heart. I was spit on, I was scourged, and I was called a liar. You think I don’t understand your pain?”

 

He continued, “I had a mission to do, I did it out of love. Yet the first time something happens to some of my children they blame me, or they say, “There is no God.” I told you that Satan is your enemy. Instead of thinking that those hurting one have sinned you should understand that so many of them are PERFECT in my eyes. Satan knows that and he is hell bent on discouraging them. ENDURE TO THE END! ENDURE TO THE END!”

 

Matthew 24:12-14Because of the multiplication of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. 13But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the entire world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

 

1 Corinthians 1: 8-9He will sustain you to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God, who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

 

1 Peter 12 4:12-13 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. …

Beloved, we are never as close to God as when we suffer without just cause.

 

The night before last Jesus spoke to me, “These horrible tests are going to be the hardest. But when you share the dinner with the Bridegroom, it will all have been worth it. They did horrible things to me, so why do you find it so strange when the shoe is on your foot?”

 

The best thing we can do with these hardships is simply surrender to them, and let God be God. He has a plan, whatever it is we must accept it. We must tell Him the desires of our hearts and then leave those desires with Him.

 

He is getting ready to turn these things around. We have been severely tested in order to understand the hard testing’s of our brothers and sisters and help them through them. Please quit sitting in judgment of others! We have no idea what their lives have been like. We must pray for mercy for those who are devastated by the trials of life, and especially for those who find delight in their suffering.

 

In His UNCONDITIONAL love,

Please Help Me To Forgive Them Daddy God!

“Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter.” Matthew 26:30

There are times in life that test us. Times when it takes all we have to just hold tightly to Jesus. Times when we know that without supernatural intervention we will not make it through to the other side of our problems.

The last four years of my life I have felt as if the bad times would never end. Yet, I learned so much and felt like I needed to share those things with others who needed encouragement too.

I have 503 subscribers to my blog. I have encouraged people because that is my gift to the body of God. In 2001, prior to 9/11, I had been praying for God to reveal my ministry to me. In the middle of one night God woke me up and through a scripture reference told me to use my love of writing to encourage others. At the time I was fairly computer illiterate. But I searched around found “In Jesus,” and started blogging. Later I switched to Word Press in order to reach a larger group of hurting people, I have been blogging online, in one form or another, since that time.

My husband and I are committed believers in Christ. We are givers. We believe that anytime God blesses us he calls us to bless others. Please know that I am not boasting about this giving heart of mine. I am trying to share my heart with you and as this blog post goes on you will understand why I am bringing this up. I fast and pray for people and I offer mostly free counseling. Some rare times I have been payed, but I try to never let anyone’s ability to donate for counseling stopped them from getting help.

Recently, because of an emergency situation where my husband and I were being threatened with eviction, not because of not paying rent, not because of destruction of property or illegal activities but because I asked our landlord to possibly fix a few things, he sent us a two week eviction notice. Our lease will be up July 1st, but he had sent a certified letter extending that until September 1st. We agreed and then I made the fatal mistake of asking him about the ceiling mold, etc. He then sent us an email telling us he was recending the certified mail and we had two weeks to get out.

We are older, we are both disabled and, frankly we cannot move our stuff ourselves. In order to move we would have to hire movers. We have no savings because my husband went in the hospital 4 years ago for an operation and ended up with a flesh eating disease that ate his sternum and ribs. He was in the hospital for three months and had seven operation. This wiped out our savings and his life as he knew it. After that the IRS went after us. My student loan payment, that had been deferred, started again. I could go on and on but you all get the picture.

After praying at the end of last week, I set up a GoFundMe account and received not one dollar, not one, “I am praying for you,” nothing. I sure got a lot of looks though from people nosy to find out what was going on. I put it on my FB account. Friends there were folks who had needed help before and I had contributed to their GoFundMe accounts. I had prayed for these people, counseled them, bought from their online businesses and yet not a one of them gave a dollar, or offered a prayer. After 72 hours I deleted the GoFundMe account and my FB account.

People, believe me when I say that I NEVER ask for help. I go directly to God and I did so this time too and felt God advising me to do the GoFundMe account. We need money to move and possibly for a hotel until we can save up for another place to live. We are disabled seniors and no one, even in our own families, offered a dime.

We are in the middle of a lawsuit against the doctor and hospital that damaged my husband. In my prayers for help I had prayed and told God that not only would I pay back anything we got but doubly bless anyone who helped us.

I am writing this because my heart is broken into so many pieces that there is not enough superglue in the world to put it back together again. I am praying for God to help me forgive all the self-centered selfish “so-called” believers. What part of helping your brother and sister in need did they not understand. If they had nothing to give they could have at least said, “I am praying for you!”

Not a word, not one word! I know I am not the only one. Has this happened to you too? If so, comment and tell your story. Get it out here! People need to know!

I still don’t know what to do, but as much as Satan has used people to hurt me, I STILL have not turned away from my daddy God! He’s all I have!

Jesus was betrayed too. Did you know that? Yes, the Bible says he was disappointed that not a one of them stayed awake with him the night before his betrayal. Jesus was spit on, denied and, at first, no one would help him carry the cross! So, if like me, your heart is broken and your soul is weary from being betrayed by so called Christians you are not alone!

I am a writer, writing helps me to get my feelings out! Thank you for reading and please share your own story! With your permission, I will share it here.

“What you did to the least of these you did also to me!” Jesus

In His Unconditional Love,

They’re Here!

jesusandsatanfighting

About a week ago I began to sense a demonic oppression around me. As I went into my time of prayer with the Lord, I could literally feel, in the spirit, powerful entities gathering around me. It literally felt like my prayers were being purposefully stopped. I had never felt that interference any stronger in my life. I wasn’t scared, because I was mentored as a young woman by a woman who had a deliverance ministry. I know that God is greater in me then Satan and his cohorts. No, scared wasn’t what I was feeling, rather I understood that as we are in a battle for our principles, here in this physical realm, we are experiencing the same thing in the Spiritual realm.

I began to pray in my heavenly language and the oppression ceased. I said, “Wow, Lord, what was that?” Immediately God spoke to me “end time demons,”

That night I had a very lucid dream. I was being accused of something I had not done and I was being handcuffed and taken to jail. After praying about that for almost a week tonight God brought this scripture to my mind, “Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life.” Revelation 2:10.

We have entered a period of extreme evil on the earth. Kathy Griffin with Trumps bloody head and a play depicting His assignation. I don’t care how much you hate Trump,those things are EVIL.

If you can’t see what’s going on you are spiritually dead.

They are here, and you can’t get rid of them by loving them unconditionally. We have to put on our armor and press through the darkness and spread the light.

Did God tell David to go out and give Goliath a hug? No, he told him to take a slingshot and put a rock in it and get rid of the giant.

I am not advocating violence, but it’s time to fight back. Pray and ask God what he wants you to do. Ask for wisdom. Your gift was given to you so that you could use it to prepare the coming of the Lord.

Now is the time to step into your full anointing .

Pray, pray like your life depends upon it because it does!

In His Unconditional Love,

Cathie
