Saved, Delivered And Healed!

Thank You Father-God!!



This is quite long, but for you to understand how VERY BIG God has been in my life - I must share some detail.


I think that I was a happy child, but an extremely shy child; everyone in site intimidated me!  I did pretty well in my "church world” as long as no one asked me to do anything, or tried to get me into a conversation.  But going to school was a daily ‘torture’ for me!  If I had of had my way, I would never have left the safety of my home. If people came to the house to visit I hid.


The first major nightmare in school was when my third grade teacher insisted that each child said their assigned number, during role call.  I could not do that!  I practiced it all weekend long…. Said it….. sang it…. And PRAYED it would come out of my mouth.  I went to school every Monday morning rehearsing my number, and telling my self - I CAN do this, I CAN, I CAN!!!


When time came to say my number, I froze – nothing would come out of my mouth!!  The teacher tried every thing she knew to try, to help me.  She changed my seat, and number several times; talked to my parents, suggesting ‘therapy.’  I never said my number! 


I am not sure how my mother managed to persuade every schoolteacher – up through my junior year – to let me slide by without standing in front of the class, or taking part of in-class discussion; but she did!  In my senior year, however, we ran into a teacher that would not let me escape participation in class.  I liked to study and learn, and usually had the correct answers to his questions… but I could not get them out of my mouth!!  About half way through the first semester, this teacher demanded that I make an oral report, to pass his class. I didn’t go back to school. I did complete school via correspondent course, and went on to Bible School! WISH they’d had Home-school in those days!!!  :O)


I was totally bound by fear my entire childhood! Could not even say grace at the table… not even if it were only my mother and I.  (I can see now why the enemy wanted to keep me in bondage!! Praise God, that Jesus defeated him!! AND… now that the thief is CAUGHT… I will have seven fold, ALL that he tried to steal! :O)  Amen?)


As a teenager I was part of a great on-fire-for-Jesus youth group; however the leadership knew that if they ever asked me to do anything, I would not be back.  (don’t know why no one realized I needed deliverance!!).  One Friday night, at a “youth only” prayer meeting – The Holy Spirit showed UP! And Showed off!  :O)   At age seventeen, I was totally free from all fear and intimidation.  PTL!!  I led worship the following Sunday morning (congregation of about 250), without a tinge of fear!  PTL!!! Thank You Jesus!!!  


The entire congregation was awe struck that day; we had a wonderful, exciting time of worship, as the Lord freed others as well.  That is the day I learned that it is not about the “worship leader” or their ability; I had NONE!!  It is about The Holy Spirit – Him being there, and in charge.


I am sorry to say that the story does not end here.


Years later, I allowed that fear back into my life…. And it had a stronger hold on me than ever before. 


At age thirty, I was still pretending to be invisible, just to go outside my door!  (I didn’t stay free, because I didn’t stay filled with God’s Word, or know how to apply His Word, when the enemy came back to knock on my door with his lies.)


The Lord DID set me free again – but this time it was in stages, not instantly as before.  It was through a season of growth, that He taught me how to stand against the wiles of the enemy. 


Then, God set me UP!  He constantly put me in situations that forced me to be right out there in front of people!! * hehe *


“I can do ALL THINGS through Christ, who is my strength!” was the way I started each day, for years!  I learned that “The Name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous RUN into it, and are safe!”  I learned that  “Jesus is my refuge and my strength!” my “ever present HELP!!!”  That The “Holy Spirit is my comforter” and “teacher” and the one who “Comes along side to help.”


I learned that “When I go to speak, HE gives me the words to say.” And that I “have the favor of God that increases daily, with God, and with man.” 

~* SMile *~


Today I can honestly say – that God has truly SET ME FREE and is making me WHOLE!!  Praise God!!  FREE is GOOD!! :0)


I have been in several areas of ministry that has required me to meet numerous pastors and officials. I’ve addressed several congregations, and I feel quite comfortable there (even when I have no grand piano, or mic to hide behind).  ha!


God is a BIG GOD, and The Bible says that Jesus gave us the same authority that the Father gave to Him. 


Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11: Put on the whole Armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.


Think about that!!!  Jesus SPOKE and the trees died!!  He spoke, and demons had to flee!!!  Every thing named under heaven is subject to the Name of Jesus…. That includes “fear.” 


No matter what you might fear…. Snakes, spiders, heights, bridges, crowds, being in front of people, illness, death, the dark…. That is NOT something that God’s kids should be bothered with!  YOU CAN BE FREE OF THAT FEAR!!


 Tim 1:7  “I have not given the spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind.” 


Think About This: “FAITH is a spirit that goes out and grabs hold of what you are having faith for, and makes it a part of your life.”

FEAR is a spirit that goes out and grabs hold of what you are fearing, brings it back, and makes it a part of your life.”


Fear is the devils counterfeit of the Faith of God!   


Faith or Fear… You choose!



John 15:16 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.


John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.



God is an awesome Father, and He wants His children free and whole.  Amen?


If I can pray for you, or encourage you please email me. I’d love to meet you!


God bless you with His Peace, and with Wholeness.


Shalom, and Shine on!
