Train a child in the way he should go,and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6
I have been tested many times during my life of how steadfast my relationship is with Him. Many times the devil has tried to rid me of the JOY of my salvation. Admittedly, he has at different times in my life, until finally the Holy Spirit reveals to me that I let the devil have the victory.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
After giving birth to my third child and finding out that she was born with a genetic birth defect, I was told over and over in mind, that it was my fault. I started living a defeated life filled with guilt and depression. When she turned 4 months old, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism(see my story and links below). I started having migraines, symptoms of being blind and paralyzed but no headaches. I was getting doctor care but no relief from the depression. I read the Word, I read it out loud, I listened to tapes of the Word. I even had my husband read it to me. My mother-in-law said "Larinda, you may not be letting the devil take your salvation but you sure are letting him rob you of your joy!". Well, that got me mad at the ole devil. I turned on Praise and Worship tapes. I sang my heart out to God and began being really busier than ever doing the work of the Lord. My music ministry really took off to where I was doing tv telethons and being invited to many churches to sing and my husband to preach(he is a lay minister).
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine... Proverbs 17:22
Praise the Lord, I was able to turn my life back around to being victorious once again. I get my valleys but then I am lifted back up on the mountain top. Jesus loves you so much and He desires for us to put Him first in our lives.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.Matt. 6:33
I am not perfect and I still have to be reminded on a daily basis of what the Word says.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
I want to be as Paul says in Phillipians 3:7-14
7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
