But he was pierced because of our rebellion, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on him, and we are healed by his wounds. We all went astray like sheep; we all have turned to our own way; and the Lord has punished him for the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughter and like a sheep silent before her shearers, he did not open his mouth.
Isaiah 53:5-7 CSB
When the Lord told me to get away from my family in May 2019 I could not believe the pain I would endure. I endured betrayal, I was lied on , I was hurt in ways you cannot imagine, and I was humiliated.
And yet God told me the reason it happened is because “I had to show you who people really were”. I learned that people are really evil. But in this pain I was drawn the closest to God as He worked supernatural provision into my life. Literally what the devil meant for evil God turned around for the good (Romans 8:28).
As God healed me from depression He showed me Joni Eareckson Tada (Who Is A Major Modern Day Prophet). I watched her movie and looked at her journey as she suffered through life coping with being paralyzed and bound to a wheelchair. Not only that I watched the mean comments on YouTube about this beautiful prophet of God saying it was her fault even though it wasnt. And God used her to teach me about life. In life when we are depressed sometimes we get kicked while we are down… but Through Jesus we have to keep going. When God was healing me through depression I was so vulnerable and had to face the very evil that got me to that state… but because of God I am healed.
Sometimes in life we have to remember the woman with the issue of blood. She spent all her money trying to be healed but it didnt work.. so what did she do? She touched the hem of his garment…. And Let me tell you from personal experience… Depression will put you in position to touch the hem of his garment like never before.
So what did I do ?
I got intentional about my walk with God.
- I prayed like crazy to God
- I dont even give the devil a chance (Ephesians 4:27)… When I wake up this is the first thing I see.
- And finally I learned how to say NO to people who literally mean me no good. I don’t answer their calls and I dont spend time with them. I have learned the power of NO (Matthew 25).

I KNOW IT WAS THE BLOOD,
