Tears on the floor.  When people ask me exactly what it is I do, I always begin with explaining our prayer methods and how much freedom we gain in our lives when we purpose and choose to forgive and break the bonds of the enemy on our lives. The short answer is that I facilitate Holy Spirit as He heals the brokenhearted. This picture, however, says it so much better than I ever could. One evening as I led a precious soul through a difficult prayer to forgive herself, the pain began to overwhelm her. I slid my chair closer to hers and laid a hand on her knee in support. The jacket across her knees was soaked with her tears.  That’s when I looked down and saw the tears on the floor. They represented 20 years of self-bitterness locked inside.

As my client freed her tears, God freed her heart.  These tears are her freedom poured out.  It was an incredible moment to be present to see God heal that place in her. So grateful He let me be in the room when He did that work in her heart. This is what we do at Christians United Ministrieswe take your hand and walk with you as God heals and restores. This is the real life of what God allows us to do.

 

 

 

 

 

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair.  In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory. They will rebuild the ancient ruins, repairing cities destroyed long ago. They will revive them, though they have been deserted for many generations”.Isaiah 61:1-3 (NLT)

 

 

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, by my free will I choose to forgive ________________ (the person) for _____________(what they did).  I release them and cancel their debt and obligation to me and mine to them.  Lord, I know I can’t change them, I can only change myself.

I command all negative trigger points through sights, sounds, smells, taste, and feelings associated with any spirit of trauma to be broken in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I cancel all shame and guilt. I repent for my part and/or sinful feelings and responses to this situation. I forgive myself because you have forgiven me. I cancel all of satan’s power and authority over me in this memory/situation.  Set this straight inside of me Lord.

Thank you, Jesus for loving me, Holy Spirit, heal, my mind, body, spirit and soul. Tell me YOUR truth. What is it Lord You want me to know?

In Jesus name, I pray.

Amen

This morning I awoke grateful for another day, but a bit sad and disoriented, thinking I was late for something.  Ever have one of those times that it takes a minute for you to wake up enough to realize you really are in your home and not somewhere else?  My disorientation was due to me just arriving from Guatemala.

 

The CUMI team of 10 people went to love and minister among some of the most humble and amazing people. We were there to minister to the Achi Tribe of people now re-located in Rabinal and Pacux. They are survivors, or children of the survivors of the 1982 Rio Negro genocide, one of five that took place.  To say this outreach was impacting in our hearts and souls was an understatement.

 

From the first moment to the last, as they shared their stories, they had a captive audience. They stole our hearts! The torture and trauma they went through, the human soul is unable to grasp and was never meant to carry. Click To Tweet

 

Yet that is not what captivated us the most.  It was rather the constant phrase on their lips; “gracias”, always accompanied with a gentle hug and smileNever once did I hear them complain.  As they told their stories they gave God glory for their lives.  Only as we met with them individually or in the personal conversations did the gravity of what they endured come to the surface in tears.

TENDER MOMENTS SHARED | A HEART CRY HEARD

Jan Hicks was sharing a story about her eyes being drawn to a flower lying on the ground during the Guatemalan Independence Day Parade.  As her eyes were drawn to the flower, without a word, one of her spiritual sons picked it up and placed it behind her ear.  A touching moment for both of them, knowing it was a God hug.

As I heard this story my heart turned to the stories of the Achi people and this is the poem that developed inside of me:

Heart Cry of a Trampled Tribe

As the parade music resounds,
I spot the little red flower lying there on the ground,  

Beautiful crimson petals all around.

Seems a bit normal, un-profound.

 

Yet as the parade passes by,

I could hear a faint heart-cry…

Of a people of a tribe.

 

We are trampled don’t you see?

Our babies dashed against the granite stone,

Fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters all,

Wiped out in genocide….

Another people their fate to decide.

To fulfill their own desires and selfish pride.

[A dam they wanted and for this, we died].

 

Justice, justice was the cry…

Why, oh why, did they all have to die?

A response arose from a faraway place…

The Creator responded outside of time and space!!!

On that hill, the King of Justice hung,

On a cross, blood running crimson…

Crying out equally loud: come, come by Achi and Kekchi

People.

 

Justice served: Redemption today in your land is heard.                                               

-Jesus

 

 

PRAYER

Father,

Thank you for your love for all peoples everywhere. Thank you for the privilege of getting to be Jesus’ hands and feet among the Achi Tribe as well as here at home.   Continue to show them who they are in you:  LOVED and FREE.  In Jesus name.  Amen.

Have you ever heard something said that sparked a quick trip down memory lane? That recently happened to me when my husband said something to me. It made me think of the old TV shows,  I’ve Got a Secret, To Tell the Truth, and Truth or Consequences.

The idea behind these popular game shows in the forties and fifties was to “have the truth” come forth. In one, it was okay to mislead the panel as it was their job to ask the right questions to “get the truth”. One of the most memorable questions was, “Is it bigger than a breadbox?” Little by little they asked enough questions to “discover the truth” in the allotted time OR not.

Of course, my mind began to drift to other things. Does that happen to you? One thing leads to another and once you come up for air, you are a mile away from your original thought! When that happens I usually make some remark to my husband who looks at me like I just dropped in from an alien planet! But, when I return from memory lane, I could easily tell him exactly how I got from point A to B.

 

What is truth?

This memory lane trip took me through three game shows and then to the question,” What is truth?” Of course, I am not the only one who asked that. Many famous people have posed this question. I began to think of a special day when a high ruling official in the Roman Empire asked that very question to one of the Jewish rabbis, Yeshua (English: Jesus).

Pilate had stated to Jesus, “So you are a king?” Jesus responded, “You say I am a King. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”Click To Tweet

 

As recorded in John 18, Pilate then asked Jesus the $64,000 question (another game show), “What is truth?”  That question still rings in the hearts and minds of people all across the world today. Many believe they have found it in various sources. Some even say, “truth is whatever you want it to be; your truth may not be my truth”.

In my youth, I fell for lots of “isms” while I was earnestly seeking for truth. Once during my quest, I dabbled in the occult, fancying myself to ascertain ALL truth through my spirit guide.  Still I wasn’t satisfied, until one day I stumbled across the following Bible verse that finally ended my search and gave me peace: 

 

 

 

Jesus is truth!

Whoa! That was bold. He went on to say, “You know the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set you free.” So, I’m thinking: I know Jesus (TRUTH) therefore, I can be set free…. free from what?

  • Lies
  • Confusion
  • Pride
  • Sin
  • Wounds

And the list goes on.

Am I free, I ask myself. After a thoughtful pause, I say aloud to my husband, “I’m free!” This is when I get the, “are you an alien look?” since he has not been in on my trip down memory lane. We both laugh as he knows I do this frequently. This time it was  wonderful  to remember and be reassured that because Jesus paid the price for my sin, I could be set free.  Yes. It was a long journey to reach that point but I’m so thankful I did. Because, if Pilate or anyone else asked me, what is truth, I could quickly say, JESUS! 

 

And you? Could you say that too? If not, why not? Stay on your journey. Read the Bible with an open mind. You also will find freedom like I did. Ask the Holy Spirit of God to show you the truth.

Prayer

“Father, show me the TRUTH as I read your Word. Open my eyes that have been blinded by Satan’s system of lies, so that I can renounce them and embrace the only TRUTH that can set me free.”
