A few days ago, I had enough! After my boss negated me hard work and disregarded my joy and efforts. Yes, I work as unto the Lord, that is our place to do so even if we are slaves It finally popped my bubble my patience ran out with the world, and God. I got angry at God, I had never done that before.
Jesus in Christianity
I was really angry and could not understand why I was not getting the wisdom, direction and revelation that I need to move on. Long story, in the midst of trials. I needed Him, because he is all that I have literally. He made my life to where I know that He is the only one I can turn to, the only one to provide for my needs, the only one with the answers and to look only upon Him and not the ways of the world. I was at the point of true distress and I have been through a lot. I was in survival mode, not only in the physical but spiritual and mental.
Although, I prayed, nothing was moving and I was falling and mad about it. I had lost my stability, strength, courage and energy that I depend on Him so much for day by day and minute by minute. Well, the other night, He woke me up and started talking me through my own life, all of it, all the events, interactions, pain, my reactions, but he showed me through his lens, His eyes how he sees me in a humorous way! He literally changed my view of the mockery from disdain. His wisdom abounds and will go deeper than anyone can imagine.

He took away the chains it seems that there are always chains and led me into freedom! He showed me that I am an…individualist, a mavrick, a non conformist, original, a Bohemian, free spirit, artist, a sceptic, revolutionist, a questioner! Once again, I have been made new and my foot was placed upon the snakes that were seeking to destroy me. He instilled, inspired, imparted, injected and transfused my mind from bondage to freedom! In my 59 years, Jesus has performed several miracles in my life and those around me. We know that every life obviously and dramatically changed for Christ is a miracle.

I did not pray to be healed or ask anyone else to pray for me, as I knew God needed to teach me some things. However long it would take, if ever, I knew healing could take place. I was also acutely made aware of my rather sorry spiritual state. Well, after only 5. When God heals, there is no after-effects. My back feels brand new. No doctor, as skilled or committed as some are, could do this thing. Apparently, my time of discipline was over for now, and I could live a normal life again. But why do some Christian wait 10, 20, 30 years or are never healed?
I pray for these people that their suffering may be eased. There is nothing one can do but speak with God in prayer about your case and then leave it with Him. Always trusting that you will be healed, as His will be done. In the worst case, with no healing, these saints will carry a heavier cross than most until their passing.
Year A: The Gospel of Matthew
But still they have confidence of paradise everlasting in the presence of our great God and Father. Although He gives abundantly to us every day, we Christians cannot ask God for anything of more value than His gift of salvation.
Blessings and healing to all of you on this site around the world. I still remember vividly that warm summer day when my friends and I were sitting on the sidewalk in front of the local shoe store. Small town USA. Everyone else refused to take one, but I took mine. I was just a teenage kid enjoying the summer with his friends. About a month later, I was up in the country hitch-hiking around.
I decided to take a short cut by hoofing it through the woods on a set of old railroad tracks. Trying to get home before my parents flagged me late for supper. About half way there I got tired, so I sat down on one of the rails to take a short breather. I had nothing else to do, so I decided to clean out my wallet. The very first thing that fell out was that little pamphlet! I still remember the cover.
As I began to thumb through it, I could see that it was your basic plan of salvation.

And that even one sin would be enough to keep me out of Heaven. But that God, in His great love for mankind, had sacrificed His only son Jesus to pay for my debt instead. It said that it had already happened, and all I had to do was accept it. And if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come into him and fellowship with him, and he with me.
I felt a small, still pull in the deepest part of my heart. Just open the door and let Him in! In that millisecond of unification, the very first thing I realized was that I had actually met a living person! And that it was all true.
Everything that I had ever been taught about the God of the Bible. That Jesus was indeed alive, and He really had ascended into Heaven just like the Bible said, and would never die again. I had always believed in God, I guess. But now I had more than a belief… I had a knowledge. I had met a living person on the railroad tracks that day. His soul breezed through mine like a living wind.
In that moment, all my sins were washed away. I could feel sins that I had totally forgotten about falling off me like old cloths! And I was made into a new person.
In that instant I also received a brief glimpse of the afterlife. A taste of living water. And the promise of a spiritual body that I would one day receive that would never get sick or grow old or die. I was never to fear death again after that day. The fear and uncertainty of that inevitability had simply left me. Oh grave, where is thy victory? And He did in me that day.
And He still does in others today. To those who first turn when they hear that knock and then open the door of their hearts and ask Him to come in. I wish I could say that my life was smooth sailing after that experience.
But it was not. Like everyone else, I have been tempted and I have fallen many times. Often times with serious and lasting consequences. But God never gave up on me! And I was never once unsure about the realities of what I came to know on that day. Because no one, nor anything else in either this world or the spirit world, can ever get inside my head and make me deny what I now know to be a fact. And the best part of it was, it was free!
After all of these years and all the trials, He has never, ever let go. And I know with all of my heart and mind and soul that He never will. Thank you Bob G for your kind and encouraging words concerning My Testimony. Every word of it is true. I have been a christian for over 20 years. God is just too great, alll powerful and awesome.
Praise the Lord Jesus Christ forever for his grace and tender mercy on his child.
