"
Burden Lifted!"



Snuggle in with the Lord

and focus on Him.

Hear Him speaking to you!

Taken from Erin’s Daily Devotional

My Beloved

February 17

 

“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (Is. 41:10).

 

Beloved, it is through fear that you are most vulnerable to attack. The enemy watches and waits for any sign of fear in which to infiltrate the walls of your heart in order to destroy you. Fear of an impending date or meeting. Fear of the future if a miracle does not occur. Fear of being alone.

 

But perfect love casts out all fear. This perfect love is only found in Him who was and is perfect. With all your love given, open up your heart wide to receive the perfect love that will flood your heart, that will cast out all your fear.

PRAISE REPORT

Submitted by: Sabrina in Texas; I’m Divorced and my husband has remarried, I’ve taken or am currently taking the Renewing Your Mind Course.

 

Burden Lifted!

 

It was December and my plan was to complete the first Rebuilder’s course. I was in a good place and excited about the next step in my journey. Man plans and GOD laughs.

 

Proverbs 19:21 “There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.”

 

By mid December I confess that I found myself struggling with my thoughts. I was at a loss. Then my praise report was returned and all I could do was talk to my Heavenly FATHER whom I realized I had not allowed to take His place as my HEAVENLY HUSBAND. Praise the LORD for those Aha moments! I gave it all to GOD. All of my shortcomings, my faults, my flaws, my sins, my desires, my mistakes, my FH, my failed marriage, my good, and my bad. “Didn't you do this before and nothing changed,” said the enemy.

 

Luke 22:31 “And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.”

 

I did and I praise the LORD for the Encouragers because I know others have traveled on the same path and their lives are forever changed. This is a process that doesn't happen overnight. So I prayed and I fasted. I got into HIS word like never before. I was and am determined not to give up. GOD is a great and awesome GOD. I am so thankful that HIS ways are not my ways.

 

Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord.”

 

After the first day of my fast I felt different. My trust in HIM grew. By the end of my fast my desire for HIM increased. I had to die to self and I am ready to live in HIM. The burden I carried of my failure as a wife and all of the mistakes I have made in my lifetime were gone. I felt lighter. I felt HIS peace.

 

Matthew 11:30 “For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”

 

Revelation 21:5 “And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”

 

Praise GOD for His loving kindness and forgiveness. Whenever my mind gets off track I take that thought captive. I decided to go through the Renewing Your Mind Course again because I want to be sure I am ready for the next level.

 

I want to praise GOD for you ladies also. GOD gives us subtle reminders through the Encourager and the praise reports. Thank you Erin and RMI Sisters for keeping my spirit lifted. Praise the LORD for being in His rightful place as my Heavenly HUSBAND. I am experiencing that side of the list that Erin wanted us to write (life if restoration didn't happen). Honestly, I am enjoying it. From time to time I think of my FH, but I quickly get rid of that thought because the past is behind me. I have finally found peace being single in the natural and married in the spirit with MY LORD. PTL!

The Next Praise Report was submitted by: Tina in Virginia; I’m Currently Separated, I am an Encourager Reader.

 

“Stronger in  My Walk of Faith”

 

I have been separated from my earthly husband for over a year. We have been married for 25 years. We do not talk unless it's about our 23-year old daughter. Last summer I found Erin’s RYM book online and I have read it and it is wonderful. I have found a wonderful church and great people. My marriage isn’t restored yet but I know God the Almighty is working. God is blessing me everyday and making me stronger in my walk of faith. I’m so glad I came across Erin’s book. It has helped me to put my faith in the Lord and not in man. Thank you so much Erin for put the resources out there for women like us!

Likewise, tell the older women
to be reverent in their behavior,
teaching what is good...
That way they can mentor young women
to love their husbands and children,
and to be sensible, morally pure, working at home, 
kind and submissive to their own husbands, 
so that God’s word won’t be ridiculed"—
Titus 2:3-5 CEB
