Out of the Darkness Into the Light

Darkness can not Drive out Darkness only Light can Do that!!

Many times more than none; we as born again Christians seem to run into that place of darkness and conviction from within, stemming from past or present bad parenting skills to relationship darkness past or present, which may lead some down the road to destruction. I find that It is extremely important factor; for the sake of parenting, as your child grows, childhood development can be influenced by not only what the parent does in life, but how they do it. Poor parenting can be passed down from generation to generation. Some call it a generational curse, I would agree. savedbyhisgrace72

Statistics show the more adverse childhood experiences a person had, the more likely their children were to been troubled too. According to “Poor parenting can be passed from generation to generation study.com” NBC NEWS. “CONN”

“If a child feels loved and supported, regardless of what discipline is used, that can be a game- changer.” NBC  “CONN”

I have a great story to tell in regards to what I have just written above, however you will have to wait until next year August 31, 2020 to read about The 46th Mile Road to Redemption How I Conquered the Roads less traveled. How I gained my self assurance, finding faith within my own strength, with the help of Christ Jesus. I had become confident within my abilities to overcome any obstacle and lifes situational circumstances. I knew I was born of uniqueness never utilizing my abilities to rise to occasion until I had to face life head on through challenging changes within my life. I knew in order to deliver my entire self, I had to determine what was needed to guide myself towards the right direction.

I had never realized how afraid of being in the dark I had become even as an adult, in all reality my life was full of darkness from the beginning. My thoughts; How could I be afraid of the dark when the lights were turned off I walked in darkness most of my life, I had become resilient to this darkness.

Having the ability to bounce back from life’s setbacks has made me the woman I am today. There were mountains that I had to climb, battles that I had to fight, If I would have never tried, how could I expect to overcome this fear of the flight. If you should ever be at the point in your life where you end up down for the count, remember you do not have to stay down, pick yourself up and continue on. I call it action orientated, The get up and fight spirit.

As a result I had become conditioned to the risks of extreme pressures the devil kept throwing my way, It was through much failure within my life that I discovered my limitations of what I could and could not do, realizing “Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.” – Maya Angelou

One might ask how they could possibly become more resilient to life’s set backs.

  • Prayer seeking God understanding the situation.
  • Becoming more self conscious within your thought process/ State of mind.
  • Determine what approach to take when a life situational circumstance arises.
  • Becoming mindful not to fall into the devils entrapment of depression/ self resentment. there is life after the circumstance in any situation.
  • Just know the Lord has his hands on you at all times.

The Devil comes to Kill Steal and Destroy

Steal- To Stealthily, Imperceptibly remove our love, joy and peace in Christ God has given us.

Kill- To remove the true purpose for our own lives by seducing us into chasing worthless endeavours causing the rejection to settle in.

Destroy- To ruin our life’s work so while we are looking back on our past we see a worthless soul. When we look in the mirror, Summing up the fear of rejection within our own identity.

Why Rejection?

Satan wants us to reject the love of god. Without love faith will not work.

unvealing the prisoner from within
“I cried unto the Lord with my voice; with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication. I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherin I walked have they privily laid a snare for me. I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul. I cried unto thee, Oh Lord: I said, Thou ought my refuge and my portion in the land of the living. Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal beautifully with me.”
PSALMS 142: 1-7

How I Found Solace In God

I want to start this post with one of my favorite scriptures from the bible, “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31: 8-9

Throughout my years of trying to find Solace in God, I often wondered why I kept picking up the bible one day, putting it away for weeks at a time the next, only to find out, I kept going back to the same area within the bible, the book of Deuteronomy, the book of God’s guidance, my inner search as to finding the truth! What my purpose of living had become. I found myself constantly picking up the bible skimming over pages that really didn’t appear to make sense to me.

As I began researching the bible, I started with a pen and paper, carefully noting every passage I did not understand, moving deeper into the word. By the time I had finished within the hour; what I hadn’t realized was that I had a page full of unanswered questions. The number two question, Why had god allowed so much hurt to enter into my past and present life. My unanswered questions were well within me, God had allowed the storms to enter into my life as to life’s situational circumstances, preparing me, getting me ready for the fight of my life as to dealing with my life’s most difficult moment. Had he forgotten about me? No, he just wanted to show me that I could do all things through Christ whom strengthens me with his guidance. Our God is sufficient for the pressures that life has to offer, both good and bad.

As you continue your journey in Christ and walk with the lord, take the time to find your own Solace within god. I am enjoying the gift I was given as to reaching out helping others that may be in need of spiritual food for the mind, body and soul, I’ll feed you, I’m a great cook. If God can take you to it he will surely pull you through it. Life that is!!!

Come along with me as I take you into my new found freedom of what God has to offer, knowing that god will be along for the journey, there is sure to be a victorious outcome.
