Going To School And The Battle Of Depression

John 3:16

Proverbs 18:14-16 The Passion Translation (TPT)

14 The will to live sustains you when you’re sick,[a]
but depression crushes courage and leaves you unable to cope.
15 The spiritually hungry are always ready to learn more,
for their hearts are eager to discover new truths.
16 Would you like to meet a very important person?
Take a generous gift.
It will do wonders to gain entrance into his presence.

My Testimony: Confessions Of A Survivor

When I was abused as a child, I was beaten to the point that I had to have a order of protection put on me. I was made to sleep on the floor, my mother would not get my hair done (unless it was a performance for other people), there were times I would be left at work with no way to get home… My mother hated me. She would call the police on me and laugh when they left and then get mad at me when I did not do good in school.

Psalms 27:10

I would skip school because the girls didn’t like me. They would lie and make up rumors about me and other boys.. Then I would go home and be abused.. Then I would go to church and have to pretend that everything was ok. I remember one time I told my mother what the girls were saying to me at school and her response was “That’s nothing I say worse stuff to you.”

On top of that she told me I was bum and a failure… I would be just like my father and she expected me to fail highschool, but by HIS Grace I didn’t .

What Does This Have To Do With College

I remember when I was in Highschool and God told me “You will be the first Doctor in your family” .. I told my mother and she said “We’ll see”

  • Ezekiel 2:5

Again… when I was in the wilderness God woke me up out of my sleep and said “You shall be a doctor of medicine”

But what do you do when you’re life looks nothing like what God promised ? Well what promise did ?

What Is God Doing Through This Hard Season Of Depression

God is delivering you from ungodly expectations. When you are abused, people will beat you down and then make you feel bad when you are failing and suffering. In your mind if you don’t have a A you are all of these bad names and you call down curses on yourself… But does a education mean that you are going to be successful ?

Ecclesiastes 9:10-11 New Living Translation (NLT)

10 Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave,[a] there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom.

11 I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time.

Psalm 91

The right place at the right time is your position in prayer… You may feel bad because your “friends” boast and brag about the straight A’s and you have a B or a C and sometimes a D… but maybe God is using this to draw you closer to HIM.

Proverbs 28:6 New Living Translation (NLT)

Better to be poor and honest
    than to be dishonest and rich.

Don’t give up… and if God tells you to take the class over do what He says. There was a time where even Samuel failed. Is he not Israel’s greatest judge? In this Christian walk you are going to encounter failure, the high’s and low’s of life… But in your highs and lows don’t allow the Devil (Matthew 6:13 EASY) to make you feel like you have to go back to abusive parents, family, or family members because you are going through a hard time right now. Just keep trusting in God.

Ruth 1:16-17 New Living Translation (NLT)

16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. 17 Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord punish me severely if I allow anything but death to separate us!”

During this hard time of depression, fast and pray because maybe God needs to talk to you about His will and not yours (Proverbs 16:9).

All though this a hard time, against all odds you are going to be ok….

Ecclesiastes 11:7 New Living Translation (NLT)

Each Of Us Is An Original

  • In my prayer time God began to deal with me about love. What it really means to love. A lot of us Christian’s are in a deep amount of pain and we have used people as idols to deal with this pain…. but it’s not going so good right now .
  1. People are not your God

No other gods, only me.
Exodus 20:3 MSG

2. People make MANY mistakes that is why we all have to repent .

But in our time something new has been added. What Moses and the prophets witnessed to all those years has happened. The God-setting-things-right that we read about has become Jesus-setting-things-right for us. And not only for us, but for everyone who believes in him. For there is no difference between us and them in this. Since we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as sinners (both us and them) and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, God did it for us. Out of sheer generosity he put us in right standing with himself. A pure gift. He got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where he always wanted us to be. And he did it by means of Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:21‭-‬24 MSG

3. Sometimes people abuse other people.

Don’t you realize that I have my shelves well stocked, locked behind iron doors? I’m in charge of vengeance and payback, just waiting for them to slip up; And the day of their doom is just around the corner, sudden and swift and sure.
Deuteronomy 32:34‭-‬35 MSG

My Testimony

I am someone who God has healed from many things. I was abused as a child, rape, molestation, and very toxic unhealthy relationships were just a average part of my life.

There was a time when God warned me not to go back to my family and let them go but I didnt listen. I just wanted love. I went back and the sad reality hit me. My family did not love me nor where they capable to. There version of love is perverted and not the will of God. So …. what God told me was true and right and I was wrong .

There was a time in my life where I have dealt with my family making fun of incest in the midst of abuse….. I felt like nothing….

After many trials I finally came to the conclusion that I would rather endure with God , pray, go through trials, and suffer many things for His name sake than to go back to toxic family members who sweep what they have done under the rug. I would rather be homeless and follow Jesus than to be in a home where I have to walk past pictures of who and what happened to me. Because I have faith and believe that God is Adonai .

“Afflicted city, storm-battered, unpitied: I’m about to rebuild you with stones of turquoise, Lay your foundations with sapphires, construct your towers with rubies, Your gates with jewels, and all your walls with precious stones. All your children will have God for their teacher— what a mentor for your children! You’ll be built solid, grounded in righteousness, far from any trouble—nothing to fear! far from terror—it won’t even come close! If anyone attacks you, don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them, And if any should attack, nothing will come of it. I create the blacksmith who fires up his forge and makes a weapon designed to kill. I also create the destroyer— but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar. This is what God ’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.” God ’s Decree.
Isaiah 54:11‭-‬17 MSG

A little more to my story. The people who abused me were people of “ministry”. With that being said,

Today, if you are in situation where there is blatant abuse in your family, ministry , or relationships dont take bad advice that tell you “its family ” and “just go back home because nothing happened to you.” No. Fight the good fight and trust God. Do your absolute best to trust God. God made you an beautiful, ordained, and a anointed original. Pure. Beautiful. Kind. Smart. Intelligent. Wealthy. Fearing God. Successful. And Prosperous.

And God Is Ready For You To Be Free.

Love ,

daily bread

We have to understand that God is good, but he rejects the proud.

Proverbs 16:18 New Living Translation (NLT)

18 Pride goes before destruction,
    and haughtiness before a fall.

He is Father and He chastens those whom he loves. With that being said understand that you will drink the cup of His wrath if you continue in disobedience and rebellion.

daily bread

mind your own business

Whew. Let me say something right now. I love this particular verse in The Message Bible .

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 Stay calm; mind your own business; do your own job. You’ve heard all this from us before, but a reminder never hurts. We want you living in a way that will command the respect of outsiders, not lying around sponging off your friends.

Years ago God gave me this verse to read while I was in the military. At first, I believed that God was just dealing with me about the fact that I literally HAD to cease entertaining bad company who gossip. Now I see that God was saying that and something more, as He always will.

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. What does this mean?

  1. (Confess: I need this to) Stop looking at gossip sites on social media. Social media can be a great way to share a image, post Bible verses, and even plan for a family reunion. However, when you don’t have self-control and can become a waste of time. You will find yourself caught up in the world of a small time celebrity or a demonic person (a rapper or singer) who does not know your nor cares about your well being. Or something worse can happen, you could be caught in fantasies about someone you don’t know. This is why the Holy Spirit tells us in 1 Thessalonians 4 to mind your own business. It’s good for you.
  2. A deception that some believers face is believing that they don’t have to work. The Word of God says in Proverbs 6:6-11 You lazy fool, look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. Nobody has to tell it what to do. All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions. So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing? How long before you get out of bed? A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there, sit back, take it easy-do you know what comes next? Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life, poverty your permanent houseguest!
  3. Sometimes we are so mean and we walk in the spirit of offense when someone reminds of what we are supposed to be doing. Have you ever considered that maybe that person that tried to remind you of what you should be doing was sent by God? The next time someone tries to remind of you something keep this verse (from the New Living Translation) in your soul Psalm 105:15 “Do not touch my chosen people, and do not hurt my prophets.”
  4. Everyone is not out to get you. There are people who want you living the good life. This is the thing. The people who want you living the good life FEAR GOD. There are people who smile at you but there heart is not with you because they do not fear God. I suggest you fast and pray for God to reveal these people so you don’t waste your time. Proverbs 9 MSG Lady Wisdom Gives a Dinner Party 1-6 Lady Wisdom has built and furnished her home; its supported by seven hewn timbers. The banquet meal is ready to be served: lamb roasted, wine poured out, table set with silver and flowers. Having dismissed her serving maids, Lady Wisdom goes to town, stands in a prominent place, and invites everyone within sound of her voice: “Are you confused about life, don’t know what’s going on? Come with me, oh come, have dinner with me! I’ve prepared a wonderful spread- fresh-baked bread, roast lamb, carefully selected wines. Leave your impoverished confusion and live! Walk up the street to a life with meaning.” 7-12 If you reason with an arrogant cynic, you’ll get slapped in the face; confront bad behavior and get a kick in the shins. So don’t waste your time on a scoffer; all you’ll get for your pains is abuse. But if you correct those who care about life, that’s different-they’ll love you for it! Save your breath for the wise-they’ll be wiser for it; tell good people what you know-they’ll profit from it. Skilled living gets its start in the Fear-of-God, insight into life from knowing a Holy God. It’s through me, Lady Wisdom, that your life deepens, and the years of your life ripen. Live wisely and wisdom will permeate your life; mock life and life will mock you.
  5. If you follow this verse it will command the respect of others. That’s the good life. If you struggle with being lazy you need to repent and ask God for help so that you can be set free from that spirit. It is not good to live fear and bondage. It is not good to be lazy. But it is good to mind your own business and work. 2 Thessalonians 3:10-13 MSG Don’t remember the rule we had when we lived with you? “If you don’t work , you don’t eat.” And now we’re getting reports that a bunch of lazy good-for-nothings are taking advantage of you. This must not be tolerated. We command them to get to work immediately-no excuses, no arguments- and earn their own keep, Friends, don’t slack off in doing your duty.
