We hold our breath in fear of feeling the pain…
***Faulty thinking is the real battle***
Tilt your head…change your perspective!
Don’t curse your blessing…
Its a miracle!
A new thing
You challenge it and it will change you!
The pain is there to serve you!
Its easy to become lost/ blind by the pain…
Don’t allow your fear of feeling the pain keep you a prisoner to the pain!
***Seeing the way through the pain….***
When you go to the Doctor’s they tap and press ànd poke and prod… looking for tender places trying to locate the source of your pain.
***You have to feel it, to heal it!***
Learning from the pain…
Pain is one of our greatest teachers
Pain helps to locate and identify the root/source of a problem.
An indictor that something is not quite right!
Inspite of the pain… Inspite of the fear of feeling the pain… Feel it!
You got to go through… to get through!
Yes it hurts, yes its scary…
But once you confront it, challenge it, *you change!
***Once the pain is gone, you’ll realize the pain brought forth the miracle…a new beginning… *A new you!
Hold on don’t give up, keep pressing, keep pushing, you were created to win!!!!
We were born victorious
We were designed to overcome all things!
(the pain is only the instrument/vehicle used to propel us forward!
Its preparing you, stretching you, transforming you to birth- bring forth a greater you!
Don’t run from it
don’t hide from it…
Stand up in it!
Yes it hurt… But stand!
Yes it’s trying to bend you over… But stand!
Dig deep… Stand!
square your shoulders back, lift your head up…by faith, stand!
Don’t back up and don’t back down…stand!
Healing vs pain
Faith vs fear
Victory vs defeat
Truth vs deception
Life vs death…the only difference is our perception!
***You’re already free!**
Love ya to life…
Jesus is the way the truth the life…
Choose life so you and your seed may live…
Isaiah 61Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
The Lord’s Message of Freedom
61 The Spirit of the Lord God is on me. The Lord has chosen me to tell good news to the poor and to comfort those who are sad. He sent me to tell the captives and prisoners that they have been set free. 2 He sent me to announce that the time has come for the Lord to show his kindness, when our God will also punish evil people. He has sent me to comfort those who are sad, 3 those in Zion who mourn. I will take away the ashes on their head, and I will give them a crown. I will take away their sadness, and I will give them the oil of happiness. I will take away their sorrow, and I will give them celebration clothes. He sent me to name them ‘Good Trees’ and ‘The Lord’s Wonderful Plant.’
4 Then the old cities that were destroyed will be rebuilt. Those ancient ruins will be made new, as they were in the beginning.
5 Then your enemies will come to care for your sheep, and their children will work in your fields and in your gardens. 6 You will be called, ‘The Lord’s Priests,’ ‘The Servants of our God.’ You will be proud of all the riches that have come to you from all the nations on earth.
7 In the past, other people shamed you and said bad things to you. You were shamed much more than any other people. So in your land you will get two times more than other people. You will get the joy that continues forever. 8 That’s because I am the Lord and I love justice. I hate stealing and everything that is wrong. So I will give the people what they deserve. I will make an agreement with my people forever. 9 Their descendants will be known throughout the earth, and everyone will know their children. Whoever sees them will know that the Lord has blessed them.
God’s Servant Brings Salvation
10 The Lord makes me very happy.
I am completely happy with my God.
He dressed me in the clothes of salvation.
He put the victory coat on me.
I look like a man dressed for his wedding,
like a bride covered with jewels.
11 The earth causes plants to grow,
and a garden makes the seeds planted there rise up.
In the same way, the Lord God will make goodness and praise
grow throughout the nations.
choose life so you and your seed may live!
