I’m back! Lol. It’s really been a crazy couple of weeks, but great! My sister had major surgery & God did a major miracle! She’s been recovering incredibly quickly!! Much better than expected. God is really good!! 🙌🙌 Also this weekend my brother is visiting. It’s always so much fun when my brother comes. We all get together & just eat, talk, & laugh. 🙂
I’ve been busy making graphics for the other ministry (they take some time lol), & praise God that site is almost at 30k followers!! 🙌🙌 It’s been growing a lot!! 🙏❤
I wanted to share something that happened to me yesterday. So, during the week, I like to listen to sermons at least 2 or 3 times a week. I listen to Tony Evans, whose app I highly recommend you download!! HIGHLY!! And a ministry from Puerto Rico who is on 🔥🔥🔥 for the Lord!! It’s called Maranatha Radio Ministries.
Anywho, I’m really glad I listened to Tony earlier this week. Because he was talking about resting in the Lord, having the Lord’s peace DESPITE our circumstance. I know this is something many of you have probably heard before, but you know the Lord has given him a great way of explaining things, & here’s a quote from that sermon that really impacted me:
“Rest does not mean nothing is wrong, it means that your circumstance has no effect on your wellbeing.” — Dr. Tony Evans
Wow! That really made it crystal clear for me! ❤🙏 So back to yesterday lol. I was driving, happy as can be because my brother was arriving! Then it hit me, I was suddenly just, overwhelmed with worries & sadness. All I could think of, was what is WRONG with my life. My bills. My mood just shifted into sadness. I sat there in my car waiting in a red light, & I just noticed that mood change. I was like, well maybe I’m PMS-ing 🤣😂 But pms doesn’t make me DEPRESSED. I was, suddenly, SAD. Worried, stressed. Having I doubts. I felt like a really deep feeling of sadness which reminded me of those years when I was depressed. I felt so helpless & hopeless for a minute there, I could hardly pray.
So I did a quick errand & when I came back in the car I just reflected & I just knew this was the enemy attacking me. I can talk & reach out to GOD WHENEVER because of JESUS, but why do I feel that I can’t pray?! Or too weak to pray? Because those were the enemies lies. He was trying to steal my joy & my peace!!!! Oh how he hates to see me happy in the Lord. It drives him nuts!! How he hates that I am at peace, happy, & united with my family!!!! He will try anything to destroy it!!!
So I prayed in Jesus name, rebuked. Repeated out loud the promises in the Bible, that way the enemy is reminded of his place. NOT IN MY HEART, NOT IN MY HOME. I mentioned Tony Evan’s sermon because while the enemy kept planting lies in my mind about worry, I just remembered, well wait a minute… no matter what, I CAN REST IN THE LORD. 💡 In God, I have PEACE. Despite any situation, I can have joy, because I have salvation! So this thought I’m having, is from the enemy, & it must be held captive because I KNOW God is GOING to take care of my situation. God CAN DO what seems impossible for us. Why should I be sad? I have salvation!! In every sense of the word! 😀🙌❤
I know it seems crazy but immediately after I said this prayer, I felt relief. 😌🕊 It’s like I felt my soul smile again. 😀💖 I put on my fave worship music & treated myself to Starbucks for being such a warrior LOL. Or maybe I was just looking for an excuse to treat myself I dk LOL 😂 I’ve been FREE from the chains of depression for like 6 or 7 years now thanks to Jesus! I intend to keep it this way in Jesus name! 🙌😀🔥
Have a great weekend! Xoxo ❤🙏💖
