Happy Friday! πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ

Happy Friday!!

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!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ 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. πŸ™‚

I’ve been busy making graphics for the other ministry (they take some time lol), & praise God that site is almost at 30k followers!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ It’s been growing a lot!! πŸ™β€

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 πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ 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:

β€œRest 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! β€πŸ™ 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 πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ 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. πŸ’‘ 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! πŸ˜€πŸ™Œβ€

I know it seems crazy but immediately after I said this prayer, I felt relief. πŸ˜ŒπŸ•Š It’s like I felt my soul smile again. πŸ˜€πŸ’– 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 πŸ˜‚ 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! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜€πŸ”₯

Have a great weekend! Xoxo β€πŸ™πŸ’–

  1. Amen. I’ve been hit this week with the same thing. Why did I do to counterattack, worship like never before. Bible study with friends, listen to sermons, read my bible, and meditate on his words. Pour out my feelings in journaling (me and God communicate well that way). His post is great. Thank you

  2. Praise God that your sister’s surgery was successful! Thank you also for sharing your experience β€œstanding firm” while the fiery arrows of doubt and fear from you know who began to fly. You stood on the truth of God’s Word, and the Lord gave you the strength needed to withstand and overcome the attack. ✝️
