Emotional Healing Through Dealing with Past Issues – Part 1H (click here for PDF version)

October 31, 2012


NOTE: REMEMBER, as previously stated, this series was written on October 1st and God has delivered me since then; I wrote it as it was given to me at that time!


I remember hearing a Pastor say years ago something to fact that we will never conquer what we won’t deal with. Therefore, ALL issues from our past and what is happening now must be dealt with; no matter how insignificant you think they are! In order to deal with your issues, you first must be honest with yourself and God (although God already knows but He wants you to tell Him you will deal with them).

I want to pray a prayer for you now: “God bless you all and I pray for your complete deliverance in the name of Jesus!”

God has so much more for your life than what is happening now; you have not reached your full potential in God – don’t settle for where you are now!!! You must move forward to be all who God wants you to be!! In order to move forward, you must stop trying to please everybody (this will help prevent issues); you cannot do it!! Stop losing your identity and taking on other’s identity to satisfy them!! Stop it!!

That is what happened to me; I lost my identity trying to please people – I put their needs before mine! I had took on husbands, so called friends, family, etc. identities to please them and forgot about what I liked and dislike – I go lost in their identity and forgot who I was. Now, God is teaching me who I am and what I like and disliked. God is letting me know it is okay to be picky about food, hair, nails, clothes, etc. I use to get teased so much about being picky with food until I begin to think it was wrong but God let me knew, no, it is okay! People, be who God made you to be; I cannot stress that enough! Stop trying to be like this person or that person and be who God said YOU are! God has made each of us differently; we do not have the same personality. Just because you are married, does not mean you are to take on your spouse’s identity; their personality. Yes, God said you become one when you marry but that does not mean you are not an individual. God is not saying to forget who you are and take on their personality, like everything they like, do everything to please them and forget about yourself.

Jesus came so we could have life more abundantly – that does not mean having a big house, the most expensive cars in the garage, plenty of money in the bank, etc.; these things are the result of the abundance, they are not the abundant life – the  abundant life deals with the quality of our life; not quantity. What good does it do you to have all these things and your life is jacked up; full of drama? If God is not the head of your life, if you have strayed off the path (or never been on it) God has ordered your life, if you are NOT doing what God has called you to do, and if you are doing your own thang, those material things are not going to help you. You might even be thinking you worked hard to get where you are, thinking it is YOUR knowledge of business that made you who you are today – that has prospered you – you are sadly mistaken; it is because of God that you are where you are today.
