“Many of us are struggling with mental, emotional and spiritual shackles. These shackles weighed us down to the point of exhaustion. We feel tormented, restless, and tempted to hopelessness.”
It’s a choice to live in freedom. It’s a daily surrender. A choice not to pick up our past sin.
I’ve had my days when I want to go back to drinking alcohol again. I try and justify how I just want to do some wine tasting or I just want to go to a beer garden. I am the only one that knows what alcohol and anger did to my spirit. Even though you may say but Reyna, it’s just wine and beer, the truth is my life is better without it, my mind, body and spirit thank me that I am no longer bounded by the spirit of addiction and anger. I am set free! ✨ In 15 days I celebrate 1year free from alcohol. As I come to my 1yr mark I’ve been having temptations to drink again. Isn’t that funny how that happens?!? What I’ve worked hard for the enemy wants me to throw it away. Not today, Satan!
Did you know you could be set free but still bounded?
That was me for many years. I believed in God. I was serving the Lord with all my heart but I was still a slave to alcohol, lust, anger, sugar and over spending.
God wants us to live an abundant life. What is the one thing he is asking you to let go of? Live Abundantly free!
“Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:34-36 NIV
If you gave up something or are celebrating a sobriety date pls comment below I love to pray 🙏🏽 for you!
Nothing is to hard for God. Not the brokenness you feel, the depression, suicidal thoughts, low-self esteem, anxiety, grief, PPD, eating issues, addictions, or anger issues. NOTHING!!!
His strong power is ENOUGH!
I have dealt with all the things I mentioned above in some point in my life. Let me tell you most of them God healed me from. A few I still struggle with. I have wrestled with God asking Him why? That is when He said “Darling, my grace is sufficient!” Love yourself even with your weakeneses, you are enough. I am enough! If it wasn’t for my weaknesses and daily struggles I don’t think I lean on God everyday (sometimes every minute). The relationship I have with Him is beautiful, intimate and powerful because of my weaknesses. I wouldn’t have it any other way. He is my rock, my strength when I am weak.
The shift happened when I accepted my weaknesses. Stepped out of denial, admitted I needed help. That’s when the peace and power was activated in my life. I can live my life at peace knowing I can trust God with my brokenness and my entire life . He created me. He is in control. He is able to do more than I could ever imagine.
He is my Healer!
One day at a time I choose to stand with hope that one day healing will come!
For now I enjoy the process. I remain in proximity to the one who Heals. I Lean on Him with full confidence, praise Him, and thank Him for my weaknesses!
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
Do not waste your time and energy wishing for different circumstances.
Yes this season is hard, not fair, and can trigger so many emotions.
Instead trust God.
This is no surprise to Him.
If He brought us to this moment He will get us through it.
He promises us to be with us!
If you want He will even hold your hand. So be open to grab it.
When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2
