Don’t Give Up On Yourself God Hasn’t

This evening the Lord brought David to my mind. I was thinking about how many times over the years people have said to me, “ You don’t know what I have done. It’s so bad that God won’t forgive me, He doesn’t want me. Trust me I can never be forgiven.”

Someone needs to know that there is no one so bad they will not be forgiven.

Remember David, the giant killer in the Old Testament. He was highly anointed by God. He was God’s man. Yet, at one point in his life he fell into lust with Bathsheba and had her husband, one of his soldiers, murdered so that he could have Bathsheba to himself.

Yes, it was bad. But through a series of circumstances God brought David to ask his forgiveness. David repented and was restored to fellowship and never did anything like that again.

When God anoints you, you do not lose that anointing as long as you ask God’s forgiveness, repent and avoid sin.

We may give up on any of us. We may give up on ourselves, people may give up on us but when God has a calling on your life, He has a calling on your life.

God has something for you to do beloved. Something you were called for. Pick yourself up and start again.

Do You Have Unanswered Prayers? Here’s Why

The other day was my birthday and usually on my birthday I like to think about all the things that changed, for better or worse, during the past year.

As I pondered some of the hard things that happened I begin to speak to God about them. I thought about the fact that I had many prayers to God that He had not answered. I thought about how many promises that God spoke to my heart that hadn’t come to past and the longer I thought about it the more I told God that I didn’t understand it. I said, “God why are you not answering my prayers? I am serving you, I am trying my best to live for you and yet you have seemed to turn your back on me.”

Maybe you are thinking, “I can’t believe you talked to God like that!” Yes I did but be honest with me, at times you feel the same way. Yet, like me, you are still here and you are still trusting God.

You see Abraham questioned God, so did David and so did Job. That’s called relationship. It happens when we have relationship with God. We don’t just know about Him we know Him because we walk with Him and talk with Him daily.

He wants us to come to Him with our feelings, good and bad, because that shows Him how very much we want to be in a right relationship with Him. If God never answered another one of my prayers I still know how blessed I am!

I will tell you something else. Not for one moment do I think He will NOT answer my prayers. His timing is perfect and I trust Him that there are reasons for delays that I do not know about. I trust His love. As I was crying out to Him I could feel His presence surrounding me, I sensed His hurt that I didn’t understand what is going on.

Beloved, when God is all you’ve got, God is all you’ve got. That alone is enough. We have to trust that our answers are coming and when they do come they will be better then we ever thought they would be!

God has told us that in these last days things will be hard. I know that God has shown me that there is so much interference on a spiritual level that often keeps God’s help from getting to us when we think it should. There is a spiritual battle in the heavens. The goal of Satan is to keep us in so much doubt that we turn our backs on God. We know that God is stronger and that no demon in hell will keep Him from getting our prayer answers to us!

Our answers are coming quickly I sense it in my spirit. Do not give up beloved as I believe we are on the brink of miracles! God will not forsake us. Recognize the satanic interference and pray against it. I often walk around my house and tell Satan to get out, in the name of Jesus Christ. I can literally feel a great sense of peace as I do that! Please do that yourselves. If you need prayer write me. I take every prayer request to the Father!

Regarding Suicide

Before I start my story let’s get this out of the way, yes I know life can get hard sometimes and I have compassion for those who feel like quitting. I know that sometimes the pain gets to be too much and that sometimes the person in pain just wants it all to end. Having said that let me show you the other side of suicide.

In my humble opinion suicide is the ultimate Narcissistic act. It’s the person saying my pain is more intense then my love for you, my child, my parents, my siblings or my partner. It’s a lifetime sentence for the people left behind.

Some of you know that God works through me in mystical ways. I don’t like the word mystic but it’s my only way to explain it to folks who don’t understand the gifts of the Holy Spirit, so please bear with me.

One day many years ago, while doing spiritual counseling with a client, I saw first hand the aftermath of suicide. The woman sitting in front of me was a physical therapist at a facility that I too worked at. I knew nothing about her but that.

Immediately, as she sat down, God showed me a very agitated woman standing in back of the physical therapist. I tried to ignore it but the woman kept agitating. Finally I stopped long enough to hear the woman say, over and over, “Tell her I am sorry, tell her I am sorry, tell her I am sorry!”

I said to the PT, “ I am sorry but before we go any farther there is a woman standing in back of you repeating over and over, “Tell her I am sorry.”

The PT’s eyes got big and she started to cry. Huge body wracking sobs were coming out of her. I was taken a back, and stood up to go comfort her by giving her a hug. She just collapsed into that hug like a child whose heart had been broken in a million pieces.

When she finally gathered her composure she told me the following; “You don’t know this but when I was 12 years old my mother shot and killed herself in front of me and my two younger brothers. I have wondered my whole life if she had any idea of the pain she was causing me, and my brothers, in order that she could escape her own pain. You have just given me the closure I never had!”

My entire life I have not forgotten that particular counseling session. The pain that poor woman had inflicted upon her by her own mother was simply overwhelming. It shaped my whole opinion on suicide from that day forth.

Please, if you feel suicidal, consider the pain you are transferring from yourself to your loved ones and get help.

As Christians we are reminded of the scripture, “The Lord giveth life and the Lord taketh life, blessed be the Name of The Lord!” God gave us our lives and only he has a right to take it. There is a time appointed for each of us to die. When we commit suicide we show that we think that we, and we alone, have the right to decide when to die. We play God.

I know it hurts but find someone to counsel with and get help! God has a better plan for your life and Satan wants to disrupt that plan through death. Start praying for God to help you and He will! What you may see as the end of your life is actually a doorway to a new beginning!

Surrender To What Is

When things are happening that we are not pleased with because they might not be what we want to happen and we might not be where we really want to be but for whatever reason it’s what’s happening now and where we are now, then all we can do is surrender and go with it for now.

Surrender = peace

If you catch a fish on a hook it might start to thrash about trying its darnest to get off the hook. But very rarely will it happen that the fish escapes the hook. It’s caught and that’s just how it is.

Today I said to God that I need to have some encouragement because it feels as if He has me in a holding pattern. I want to land and go forward on my journey. Yet God whispered to me that the time is not yet for my prayers for certain things to be answered with YES. I don’t have a “no” answer but I have to surrender to what is for now!

Are you here with me beloved? If so take a deep breath or two and surrender to what is. Be still and confident that your answer is not here yet but it will be soon because God wants to give us the desires of our heart. But rest assured that when He does the time will be absolutely perfect. It’s going to be better then you ever dreamed it would be. Completely perfect.

Quit thrashing around and surrender to this moment.

Breaking! A Word From God Concerning Warfare

“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabits the praises of Israel.” (Psalm 22:3)

Beloved today I am impressed to share the above scripture with you. As I sought the Lord today I began to sense a lot of confusion in the Spirit.

I sense that a lot of God’s people are confused about where to go, what to do and it’s causing your faith to be tested more severely then it has ever been tested. I sense that some Christians are at a point they feel ready to give up. Some of you have felt like no matter how true you are to the Lord and no matter how often you fast and pray nothing is changing.

God began to speak to me that the cause of such severe confusion is a hoarde of interfering demonic spirits unleashed to create so much confusion and deception that His people feel defeated.

It is not Gods will for His people to be defeated. Beloved the Lord says in the Word that he has come that we may have peace and abundance. He wants us to have enough provision that we can not only pay our bills but help others to pay theirs also. It’s not God’s will that we go around downcast without our needs met.

The scripture above tells us that God inhabits( lives within) the praises of His people. So when we start praising God in the middle of bad circumstances he dwells among us, He stands right by our side. No devil in hell is allowed to cross the blood line that Christ puts around His people.

When an army goes into battle if at first they don’t succeed what do they do? They bring in better, more powerful weapons. So seeing that these confusing spirits are trying to keep our blessings from us in these last days we are going to have to bring in more weapons. I urge you to lift your arms and walk around your home and start praising God. When you get in your car start praising God, when you go in the shower start praising Him! If, and hopefully you do, you pray in tongues then this is the time to praise Him in tongues too!

God is going to bring breakthroughs that will shock and surprise your enemies, both in this world and the spirit world! Bring God into covenant agreement with you by praising Him in the middle of your situation!

Please let me know when your breakthroughs come so that I can share them with others for their encouragement!

The Heartbreak Of Family Estrangement

EF32001F-AB79-4A0B-BCCF-E44EE1B42D24

Some of you will understand this, others will not, but I am going to say it anyway.

I was thinking today about the wonderful, fun get-togethers my family once had. Simple fun, laughter and good food. Then certain people marry into a family and they seem to be jealous of that closeness and they set out to spread lies and tear a family apart.

When we marry into families we need to NOT be jealous of our spouses other family members. It’s ridiculous to act like that. One day you will look back on that and realize how much time you wasted like that. Time you can never get back. 

Jealousy and fighting are straight from the pits of hell. Do not be jealous of the relationship your spouse has with their parents or brothers and sisters. They are not going to leave you because of those relationships. Your spouse will love you much more for loving their family. On the other hand when you divide your spouse from their family they will hold resentment against you. They may not say anything but they will resent you for coming against those they love and expecting them to choose between you or them.

I know sometimes things are said and done by family members that we don’t like. We have to let those things slide off our backs. Surely God has given us enough Grace that we can overlook these things for a few days of a visit once a year. It’s called respect.

Spend time together, forget your grudges!

He Will Calm Your Storm

296AFE55-38B6-4931-AB90-F7BC68EE9EA0

In peace I will lay down and sleep, for you alone God make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8

Growing up, as a small child, we lived in the panhandle of Texas. Back then the wind would 

pick up in the Summer, the clouds would move in, dark and ominous, and we knew rain was coming. Sometimes that rain would bring a tornado or two with it. I remember trying to sleep at night but being afraid to because of a tornado warning. I trusted my parents when they told me to go to sleep because if we had to get to shelter they would wake me up.

Storms come to everyone’s life. A whole lot of times they are not weather storms but storms of problems. 

Life doesn’t always go perfectly for a whole lot of us who live paycheck to paycheck. We have unexpected expenses arise, and one thing like that can really throw our budgets out of whack 

and we often don’t know how we are going to make it. 

Then there are the emotional storms that come up, maybe it’s illness, death of a loved one, our partner leaves or has a drug or alcohol problem, we lose our jobs. It can be anything, I know because I too have storms.

The thing is that Jesus calms storms. We simply have to release them. We hold on to them thinking that unless we can figure out, with our little finite minds, what do to we are doomed. We think it’s all up to us to find a solution.

We have forgotten that we serve the God who parted the Red Sea. The God that created miracles then, is still in the miracle working business. 

I have had miracles that would blow your mind. I have had times when I lost everything and yet God replaced it and more. I have had Godly people give me just enough money to keep me going because God told them too. Miracles still happen. I can honestly testify to that.

I know right now you are afraid you won’t make it either. I am going to ask you to close your eyes. See all of your problems in a basket. Now hand that basket to God. Thank Him for taking your problems, your worries and have faith that he will handle them now. He’s on the scene. Your miracle is at hand! Keep your eyes on Jesus! Not the storm! Rest knowing if he needs you he’ll call you!

When It’s Hard To Trust God

Trust

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

 

Do you ever, like me, have times when you cannot understand what God is doing in your life? Times when you say to God, “I don’t know why you let this stuff happen to me?”

 

For me it happens less now, but it still happens. When it does happen I have to still my mind, start praying in tongues and say, “Father, calm me. I know this is your will for me at this moment!”

 

If you are in a place like this right this minute, you must trust God anyway. Say to yourself, “This is a test, I will take it and I will pass it with flying colors by trusting God and being patient.”

 

Through the years I have realized that we cannot learn to trust God if we never go through situations in which our trust is tested.

 

I have known people who never had a problem in their lives. They have never known what it is to do without the basic necessities. They come from wealthy families and that wealth has been turned over to them, commonly.

 

Those people, however, never learn to trust so when the moment comes when something unexpected happens to them they literally fall to pieces because they have never experienced losing anyone, anything, or doing without.

 

So, like Job, we learn that we do not have to be out of God’s will to be tested. God loves us and wants the best for us. It helps to remember that, during times of wondering what in the world is causing a delay to our prayers.

 

Without an unconditional trust in God our lives will be miserable. Each one of us has times when we experience the silence of God. We have times of questioning, as Job did.

 

The sooner we quit stressing, quit telling everyone our problems and just relax in trust, the more peaceful our lives will be.

 

I have found that as I let go of worry, questioning of God, and stressing and telling my problems to everyone, God miraculously answers my prayers quickly.

 

Take a deep breath. Breathe in to the count of four and then let the air out of your lungs slowly. It will be okay. Even if nobody in your whole life has been trustworthy, God is and will be with you through this storm and all the storms of your life!

In His Unconditional Love,

Coffee With Cathie 05/11/2018

This morning this scripture came to my mind

“My sheep know my voice and I know them” John 10:27

As I meditated on that a picture came to my mind of one of my children, when they were young and got hurt outside playing, calling my name.

Like any other parent I knew which one of my children that was. I never hesitated, I went running to help.

God knows my voice and he knows your voice and all we have to do is call his name and He stops everything and he comes running.

He knows his kids voices and we know His. Whether you are far away or near to Him, He’s standing and he’s calling to you, individually, he is wanting you, specifically to hear his voice and come running!

Coffee With Cathie 5/4/2018

What a beautiful sunny morning we woke up to! 

Lately God has been sending very mature Christian friends my way online. I am thrilled about that and praise God for them. In prayer this morning I asked God about it. His answer seemed to be that as demonic activity increases we will be needing to stick together in greater ways then ever! We need to continue to back each other up in prayer as those on the front lines are being buffeted by demonic activity more then we ever have been. 

There seems to be no basic manners anymore. There is no restraint. People say what ever comes into their minds and then act surprised when others are upset with them. In most things God has told me to watch my mouth and stay silent. It isn’t worth engaging with these people. We have read the book and know who wins in the end.

John 15:19 

If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

John 18:36 

Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”

Enjoy your coffee today with the calm assurance that He is still on the throne and His will WILL be done!

PS. God has shown me that things will be revealed this month. People that have been hiding bad motives will be exposed and the truth will come out. Be prepared to be shocked!

Finances are turning around. God is promoting people into greater areas of responsibility. Those who have been sitting in the shadows will now be seen by many in a greater arena of influence.
