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,

Align Your Mind With The Mind Of God

Thoughts

Psalm 34:17-18 the righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

 

Our moods can change really quickly. One minute everything is great and the next minute we our in a bad mood and obsessing over one problem or the other.

 

I recently had an incident in my life that I could not seem to break free of obsessing over. To me it is an emotionally painful situation and it never seems to get better no matter how much I pray. Believe me I have prayed until I am blue in the face and the situation doesn’t get better. I was praying in the spirit this week when God began to download to my mind a teaching for others and myself about the danger of obsessing over problems and how doing that makes things worse.

 

God began to show me what happens in the spirit world when we focus on one problem obsessively. Without knowing it the problem gets bigger and we actually attract more problems by constantly praying in a negative way about our problems. We have all been there. We start to tell the Lord about what is going on, from our perspective, and we begin to tell him how awful the situation is and that we “just do not know what we are going to do about it.” We go on from there with one negative confession after the other. In the Kingdom of God, one of the Kingdom principals is, “What we say is what we get.”

 

God begin to speak to my heart and said the following, “If this situation was completely rectified and everything concerning it was perfect, how would you feel?” I thought about how I would feel without the problem. I determined I would feel happy, peaceful and secure. God then said, “I want you to imagine yourself feeling like that every time you think about it and then pray to me with gratitude that you feel happy, peaceful and secure. Do not mention the problem, I already know your problems. Just thank Me as if everything was exactly as you want it to be. That puts your mind and my mind as ONE. I want only GOOD things for you always, you already have those things it’s simply the enemy of your soul who wants you fretting over things that you, already, have every right, as MY daughter, to have. Every time you start to obsess over things just STOP and go to that peaceful place in your mind where you feel happy, peaceful and secure. Before you know that it will become habit, and things will line up to bring answers to your problems that make you feel happy, peaceful and secure. You must align your thoughts with MINE and not those of Satan!”

 

You see, God has a purpose for each life. He never gives up on that purpose, and as we keep our mind on the positive attributes of God’s Kingdom, and His will for our lives, we shift the negative focus to one that is positive and the heavenly realms respond to it and bring back positive things in our lives.

 

The same thing can be said about our finances and what we see as a lack of money. We look at what we see around us and we panic. We say things like, “The economy is bad, the world is in a bad state financially and I do not know what to do!” Our minds do not know the difference. If we say those things then those things come to pass. Instead we can shift that by feeling the same feelings we would feel if we had enough money to pay our bills on time, do some things we want to do and bless others. We then start to praise God for the things we do have. God operates in an attitude of gratitude. So many times we hear people say, “Get real, tell it like it is!” Telling it “like it is” will keep things like they are, in our lives, forever.

 

The Word of God says, in 3 John 2;  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.”

 

What story are you telling everyone today? Are you full of self-pity and worry? Do you repeat that over and over every time you speak to someone? Doing that sets us up for failure. Instead write a new story for yourself. Set goals and see yourself as a person that has the power, with the help of God, to tear up the bad chapter in your story and write one in which you are happy, healthy and prosperous.

 

Focus on your God given purpose in life. Do not focus on the problems.

 

In His Unconditional Love,
