Let Go and Let God

Have you ever felt weighed down by life’s burden’s and trying to control everything? The weight of the world can sometimes feel like it’s on your shoulders if you don’t let God be your center.. the Good news is we don’t have to feel like that anymore.

Jesus said –

Matthew 11:28-29 (KJV)

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

So Jesus is saying he wants us to come to him with all our troubles and burdens and lay them at his feet so we can find rest unto our souls, and because our issues are put into his hands we have the reassurance that he will work everything out (And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose Romans 8:28.) this gives us a peace of mind and heart. When we simply Let Go and Let God we are doing this.

Sometimes we need to take a step back and just let God take control because he know’s the plans he has for us (For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plan’s to prosper you and not to harm you, plan’s to give you a hope and a future Jeremiah 29:11) and because he is Sovereign. I also noticed that when we Let Go we are Trusting God and his Will for our lives, this gives us a great sense of peace and understanding.

Jesus wants all of your heart, don’t be afraid to trust him with all of Life’s issues too, Letting Go is powerful!

It truly gives me Joy to see this photo back at a time when I could see smiles on our faces. Haha yes it was a great hike, would love to do that again.

Hiking is super good exercise especially when you have an awesome brother or sister to hike along with makes it all the more inspiring.

Besides that Hiking also surrounds you with beautiful scenery like Gods creation, trees, flowers, rivers, etc. and sunlight if you go out early.

What? A miracle, or, What a miracle!

My Dad’s heart attack scare, which turned out to be an Amazing Miracle of God. Glory to God!

“God is still on the throne and prayer changes things.”–Virginia Brandt Berg, The Promises of God Are Streams That Never Run Dry

On Friday morning of April 10, 2015, I went to my doctor at a local GP clinic because I was experiencing some chest pains. I had had them for a few days but because I have recurrent gastric reflux, and had experienced this sort of thing before, I was not too worried. However, I had some pain on my left side, which was new, so I thought, to be safe, I should get myself in there to get checked out. (In fact, I had planned another meeting a few hours after my visit to the GP clinic, and was not expecting anything out of the ordinary.)

The doctor sent me down to their nurse, who did an ECG scan. I expected this as routine for someone presenting with chest…

My Mum & Dad <3

My Family.jpg2

To show my parents how much I appreciate their help and work with me, I decided to write this post. So they can see how much I love and care about them too. I know I am truly blessed to have them as parents.

Mum– Despite all the tribulation I’ve been through with my seizures and shoulder dislocations, my mother has stayed faithful, keeping record of my episodes in her diary and helping me by researching info on how to improve health and buying supplements. Plus a great cook in the kitchen!

She always knows how to bring me back up when I am feeling down and make me laugh. My mum has faith like a Child like no one else I know. Is very encouraging and a great Singer and Guitar player.

Dad– My Dad has some good bible studies and prophecy classes, which you can find on http://www.revolutionforjesus.com. He is a great public speaker and creator of creation ministries. My Dad has also been blessed with God’s wisdom through the holy spirit and I know he has a great heart. Thank you Dad for all you have done.

I also think my afflictions have brought a lot of stress and emotion to both my parents but they have stuck by me and sold out and still been faithful of which I am very grateful.

Thank you Mum and Dad for both being great role models in my life, I Love You ❤

I Hate Lies and Dishonesty

There is so much dishonesty now with information you read in books, in stories or on the net. I also can’t stand it when people lie just to make themselves look better or only give you half the truth because they are too proud to give you the whole story, yet there is still always going to be that confusion from the people that do this because a lie is a lie, also with the days getting darker it can be hard sometimes to find the truth in everything you are learning, but the answer is in God’s Word. Lies produce confusion and stress because lies are of the Devil, the father of lies and there is no Truth in him. He was a deceiver from the beginning.

I’m not saying I’m perfect just that I Love Truth which is contained in the book of Life called The Bible, God is not the author of Confusion, and God did not give us a Spirit of Fear, but of Power and of Love and of a Sound Mind. The devil is the author of confusion don’t listen to him, he’s been a liar from the beginning and always will be. Start reading and studying your bible everyday (God says to meditate on his word), as we start to understand The Truth (God’s Word) there won’t be any room for confusion only wisdom. The Truth will make you free and unafraid to be who you are called to be and be an over-comer with the lies of man. Trust God for the impossible!

Joy in the Holy Ghost

Joy-SPACE-Visualization

What are your desires in life? Are you seeking to be happy and do you think money or fame is going to get you there? In this stressed filled lifestyle so many people are seeking some kind of happiness through the deceitfulness of riches and still never get there or find it. In this article I explain about what true happiness is, it’s a special gift called JOY.

There are so many people lost and searching and they don’t even know it, it’s so sad that people have been deceived by Satan and think that heaps of money is going to bring them happiness. IT’S NOT. Real happiness is called Joy and it only comes from the Lord. It is that deeper bliss within. I used to believe that Laughter was the Best Medicine because that was something I was used to hearing all the time (although there are a lot of good Health and Healing Benefits of laughter I don’t look at it as something that fulfills me to the core because so many people can so easily put on a fake laugh and still be sorrowful inside). Ecclesiastes 7:3 (KJV) Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sorrow of the countenance the heart is made better. I realized now that only Jesus could truly satisfy me and make me happy, that’s when I found this great Joy in the Holy Ghost. Jesus is Definitely the BEST MEDICINE!

Joy is a sense of fulfillment, being joyful in what God has blessed you with (being thankful) and helped you to achieve. When you have Joy, you find ways to look at problems to solve them, instead of stressing and you actually start looking at life in a more positive light, being joyful in what you do. Although If you are working I don’t recommend doing something you aren’t sure about, I encourage you to always pursue your dreams and who God has called you to be with courageous passion and love. While food can be good medicine to relieve stress, it no where near comes close to the feeling Joy brings, which relieves all tensions and brings about a sense of peace. It says in Proverbs 3:7-8 (KJV) Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord and depart from evil, It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. This is also what brings great Joy, fearing the Lord and not leaning on our own understanding, when we do this, it makes us thankful for what we have and what we have achieved, making us excited to try new things and to keep doing the work God has called us for, this is all good for our health.

Have you ever seen how happy and excited children get? Part of the reason is because children don’t get worried, that’s true, but Joy is mostly what they have and that’s because children are humble. Also have you ever seen someone who’s just been born again and how they become full of Love, Joy, and Hope once Jesus gives them a new life? (They contain all of the things children possess before they are brainwashed), If you read in Matthew 18:3-5 it talks about how we need to accept Christ Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. This means God want’s us to stay humble as a little child is, so we don’t become blinded by our pride which stops God’s Amazing Grace, Abundance, Joy and Truth in our life. Joy also comes from a sense of humbling ourselves because when our eyes aren’t blinded from pride and we can see clearly again, we start to see things in a more positive light, a Joyful one. Being humble is one huge step to being Joyful and those that fear the Lord are already half way there.

I notice that I’m less Joyful or I find it harder to be happy or thankful when I don’t trust in God or lean on him. God’s always showing me something or he’s trying to tell me his ways are not always my ways. So when we learn to depend on God more, we will be much happier and healthier as he directs our paths Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Speaking of Joy, I also believe that to have the fullness of Christ and his Joy in our life, we have to be living by the fruits of the spirit, which are Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Kindness, Self control: against such is no law. Galatians 5:22-23. Amazing as it may seem when we submit to our Saviour or when we become born again, a new person with Christ, God overwhelms us with his Love for us, we have an amazing sense of Peace and Joy and we can learn to forgive others because we know we are forgiven and God teaches us to be Patient, that tests our Faith. So when we are wholeheartedly submitting to him, we start to produce these fruits of the spirit, I believe it’s part of becoming born again but God is the one who puts these fruits in us and there is no greater Joy than living by them.

If you are looking for the right path, it’s with Jesus Christ. The one who died for you and rose again. He wants your heart because he loves you, that’s why he died for you. All you have to do is accept him and believe Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Salvation is a free Gift of God! isn’t that Amazing. God can give you a new life like never before. Surrender your WHOLE heart 100% to him and he can give you outstanding Joy like no other, which cannot come from any other source but him. Real happiness called Joy is not a temporary feeling of bliss but a real feeling of contentment with the Holy Spirit within you.  All you have to do is believe in him, it’s your choice, like God said many are called but few are chosen because few choose to believe in him but if you do he can make you clean and bring you to the light. I want you to find him because it’s just so amazing when God makes you a new person, makes things clear for you and brings understanding, that’s the Joy I have in the Lord! I LOVE it! and I love Jesus! 

I feel my best/most healthy when I am full of Joy, that’s why I know Joy in the Holy Ghost is the Best Medicine, although to receive full Joy we must not lean on our own understanding, we have to be patient and learn to wait upon the Lord and he will renew our strength. Jesus says in Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. When you wait on the Lord, it forces you to trust and to learn patience, both of which test our faith and are both key ingredients in life. God wants us to wait upon him, to trust him in everything, when we do, he brings about great understanding and peace as he renews our mind and gives us hope for the future, that is what brings JOY. But God still wants your heart because it is not his will that any soul should perish, but all come to repentance. It says in Luke 5:32 (KJV) I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. So don’t turn away in wrath or pride (hard hearted) because Jesus can give you a life better than the one you have now, a life full of Joy, Love, Peace, Understanding, Hope and Thankfulness but Jesus wants you to come first to receive him wholeheartedly, turn from your Sin and your own understanding and abide in his truth (his light). Cling to his promises daily, obey his word and fear the Lord! BELIEVE. It will be health to thy navel and marrow to thy bones. It says in Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Putting your faith in Christ is what you need to do now, trust him for the impossible, and he will make your paths straight again and reward you (bless you) depending on that faithfulness and according to your own faith. With the world nothing is possible but with God ALL things are Possible! So trust him today!

Overcoming Anxiety with The Power of God’s Word

CW020-The-Power-of-Gods-Word-in-My-Life

Are you often caught up in your fears? Do you suffer from Anxiety? Does it tend to get a hold of you? Well believe it or not, all that can be overcome with the power of God’s word!

When we are fearful, it tends to hold us back from achieving a lot of our goals, it even can make it hard for us to get through a day. Fear is of Satan – the father of lies, it is not heavenly, for how many times did Jesus tell his disciples not to fear, the ones of little faith? God is ALL about Believing! Satan likes to bring us down, especially if we are doing a good work for Jesus. He is going to do anything he can to stop us from achieving that work or goal. Remember this verse. 1 John 4:4 which talks about, greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world! Remember Jesus lives in you.

I strongly believe that exercise and good diet, looking after ourselves and what we eat and put into our bodies is really important but I’ve found from my own personal experience, that ONLY God and knowing his Truth, believing in his promises and putting that faith into practice can truly set you free from fear. For God did say that man shall not live by bread alone, but every word that comes from the mouth of God. Also when you find that perfect peace within yourself through God, all irritation, uneasiness and fear will be gone. I’m not saying your life will be perfect but peace is far beyond anything man can understand as it says in Philippians 4:6-7. A lot of people that suffer from anxiety may also suffer from a broken heart, or have had it broken in the past, In Psalms 34:18 it says – The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit, and In Acts 9:34 it talks about a man that was made whole, And Peter said unto him, AEneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately. So remember, God’s word is powerful and sharper than any two edged sword! It has the power to make us whole again and to heal the brokenhearted, to feel like ourselves again, not trying to compare ourselves to what the world thinks but to what Jesus thinks, and being who we are called to be. Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 

Overcoming our fears is all about faith, and then putting that faith into practice to overcome them, it’s called facing our fears. The only way of overcoming fear is by facing it. Remember that with God ALL things are possible, God rewards us according to our faith, like Jesus talks about in Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Only perfect love casteth out all fear, which is finding that perfect love in Christ, for there is no one else perfect but him. When we do find it, and continue to praise God and be thankful for every good gift he has blessed us with, the fears will begin to vanish. When we praise God, the Enemy flees. Have you also ever thought or wondered why you become Anxious? and sometimes think that the things you worry about seem stupid but you just can’t seem to get them off your mind? I’ve had the same problems, I know it is the enemy attacking me, because I know there is really nothing to be afraid of when God is for me. In a way we can be thankful in all of this, when we do have trials in life, because it will just be drawing us closer to him, forming us more each day into the image of Christ, and remembering that he has something much better planned for us in eternity.

I also wanted to talk to you guys about good health and exercise because both I believe are so vitally important along with God’s word, especially with overcoming anxiety. Good nutrition, whole foods that contain fiber, vitamins and minerals are the best sources for relieving stress. Also the Glowing Green Smoothie, which I drink everyday, is a fantastic drink that makes me feel calm and clearheaded and boosts my vitality and energy. It is also a great detoxer and when we detox and remove toxins from our body, our body naturally becomes more alkaline, which is what contributes to reducing stress symptoms and removing weight from our bodies. When we are low on magnesium, we can also have a tendency to stress out more. There are large amounts of magnesium in seaweed, and we can also find it in avocados, bananas, nuts and seeds and dark leafy greens. If we can get more greens into our diet it can help a lot, so we are getting the vitamins and minerals our body needs to help us function and feel like ourselves. 2 other foods that improve our mood are dark chocolate, without the added sugars or milk and Almonds which contain Iron and healthy fats. Dark chocolate reduces cortisol, the stress hormone that causes anxiety symptoms and instead creates feelings of love, it also contains magnesium to relax us, and Almonds are great because of their Iron content, which when we are low on can cause brain fatigue, that contributes to both anxiety and a lack of energy.

Exercise on the other hand is also very powerful, it is a great way to relieve stress and feel relaxed. When we exercise we are also helping our brains development. It has helped me to overcome a lot of my own battles but in saying that I don’t believe exercise works alone, or diet for that matter, they both work along side each-other following after God’s word and clinging to his promises because God tells us that our body is a Temple of the Holy Ghost, so we should be honouring and nourishing our bodies not abusing them. A lot of people that suffer from Anxiety use exercise as a mood enhancer and stress reliever, but to get the most out of your workouts (The Green Smoothie helps with this) its important to live a healthier lifestyle and eat more nourishing foods. I also find when I mediate on the Word of God while I’m exercising or Listening to some Praise Music, I feel more uplifted, and being in nature and hiking, seeing all God has to offer in his creation is also really relaxing.

So this is how I categorise the stress relievers, in order of priority.

  1. God – He’s most important, in everything. Put God first.
  2. Diet – We are what we eat, so if we want to feel better, we have to start eating better.
  3. Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins which create feelings of happiness, this can help with relieving stress.

All 3 together is amazing, once you are into the word and leaning on God and his promises you might begin to have the faith for a brighter future, one where you are exercising and eating healthier whole foods. And remember to never give up, this is a battle we all struggle with in life. So it is not just necessarily our bodies we are battling against but demonic forces and evil spirits (which are the very reason our bodies can become sick), that’s why we need to be on guard Mentally, Physically and Spiritually so remember to stay in the Word, look after your Temple with good nutrition and exercise and Meditate on the Lord day and night, until eventually you will have the Power to say goodbye anxiety and start feeling more like yourself again. Think less, live more! Psalm 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?  Fear not, only Believe. :)
