Amazing grace how sweet the sound! Take today to think on those things that are good, right, pure and of good reprt. Don't even give room in your brain for those things that tear you down. Just stop them when they enter and say "I will not go there!" You don't have to spend time entertaining negative thoughts. Resist Satan and he will FLEE from you. If he can control your mind he has all of you.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Pil 4:13.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, constant in prayer. Rom 12:12

Dear TBEARNUT (Brenda),
Hi, welcome to the group. I hear the chains of Satan on your heart. He tries to tell me the same thing - I'm horrible, unworthy of such love, and in the world's eyes, I've done a lot of the unforgivable sins. Satan tries to remind of these. I tell him to flee from me in the name of Jesus. He can NEVER defeat the power of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We are already on the winning team and he is a LOSER. Reject him and recognize that it is his lies and deception that are trying to destroy you and any relationship you have with God. That is his only purpose. Once you know the enemy, you can see him for what he really is - a big loser! YOU are not a loser. We are hear to build each other up! I hope to get to know you better and I will keep you in my prayers, Laura

Hi, Brenad. I'm pleased to meet you. I'm so glad you have come here to be with us. Condemnation is one of Satan's biggest, sharpest tools of destruction. As long as he can keep us living under the strain of guilt, we cannot be free, and he knows it. The price Jesus paid to bear our guilt is incomprehensible. What He left in glory to become man, the sinless life of love that He lead here on earth, the horrifying death He endured, the glorious resurrection all paid the price for anything we could ever do or would never do. Our forgiveness is not hinged upon us but, rather upon Him.

There's a popular song out by Casting Crowns that I'd like to share with you. If the link separates to two lines, just paste it as one continuous line in your browser.

Here's the lyrics so you can read along:

Who am I?
That the Lord of all the earth,
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I?
That the bright and morning star,
Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wandering heart.

Bridge:
Not because of who I am,
But because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who you are.

Chorus:
I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.
I am yours.

Who am I?
That the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love
And watch me rise again.
Who am I?
That the voice that calmed the sea,
Would call out through the rain,
And calm the storm in me.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who you are.


I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who you are.


I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.
I am yours.
I am yours.

Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
I am yours..
I am yours..

I hope this renews within you the knowledge of how precious you are to our Lord, how special you are in this world. May that awareness set you free from condemnation.

Hi Brenda ~~

I believe that everyone has feelings of insecurity and worthlessness at times, some more than others. I read a story once where a man was offered a million dollars for each of his legs and each of his arms but refused the offer. The questioner pointed out to the man that he, himself, had just admitted that his self-worth was at least four million dollars. The man shook his head in wonder and walked away with a new attitude.

Most of us are here because we want to lose weight and gain better health. I'm one of them. Due to injuries, I now weigh more than I ever did and sometimes I feel self-conscious when I'm in public. That's when I remind myself that I am a child of God and worth at least four million dollars because I, too, would reject such an offer.

You have many people here who will have you in their prayers. We are here to encourage you, to inspire you and to motivate you.

But, first, remember you are also a child of God and as such are special to Him and the world, just as you are.

Thanks for letting us help you. God bless you.

I have some serious problems in my life, some of it created by myself. I need prayer God will help me to not live in fear and guilt and condemnation. Pray God leads me in the direction to go, shows me my part, helps me to just do my part, and to give the rest to him. really give it to him. I think I have to pay in a million ways , and though this is big,I need to realize God is wanting to help me. I seem to want to "pay" not only in doing what I can in my situation but when God does come through and when I do get victory, I want to do as the world does, judge and condemn myself .I think I cant have a moments peace or love myself or forgive myself .I am looking at myself through the worlds eyes I guess. Worrying they will judge and hate me. I just know I have always suffered with feeling I can never really be forgiven or that i should always feel bad about what I have or have not done. BE it little or huge! I need prayer over this and appreciate it greatly. God bless all, Brenda
