Hey everyone, I heard this preacher on the radio today saying that sometimes we have more faith in the negative than the positive. It makes a lot of sense if you think about it humans always tend to expect the worse and hope for the best. Anyway just though you could chew on that for a while, i believe Jesus knows our sufferings and He really cares for all of us Lymies.

Peace Johnnylight

Definitely true and interesting way of looking at it. People tend to lean towards the negative for sure. I know I do and I have to stay in the Word daily to keep the positivity from God's word flowing. I crash other wise pretty quickly into negative thoughts when I don't feel good etc.

This is interesting because I was thinking the other day how tired I am of "thinking" about THIS all the time. So I decided to thank God for all that I have...I literally went on and on and on and finally my problems seemed small in comparison to the many blessings.

It is not easy living in a body being tortured, but I know God is the ONLY way out of this and like the bible says to make our thoughts about the Kingdom and all other things shall follow.

This can be overcome and is not too big for our God.

Last night my pastor said that the scripture that says to "call things that are not as though they are" not only refers to speaking out good things that are not seen in the midst of evil circumstances, but it can also mean the opposite. You can speak death to your circumstances even if you can't see it. i.e. saying "I'll never get well", "I will have to learn how to live with Lyme" "This disease is starting to get the best of me" "This disease is a killer" etc etc. Power of life and death is in the tongue, right? It is important to keep saying "I am already healed." "I already received healing and now God is just going to keep on manifesting it in my body until I FEEL totally well." It may seem contrary to reality and ridiculous, but the TRUTH is that by His stripes we WERE healed, so saying every day that you're ALREADY healed is important because you are speaking out the Word of God rather than using your own words.

Yes i agree with you guys, can you imagine if someone said to Paul " Hey buddy you asked God three times already what part of NO don't you understand" Nobody said anything to A. Paul because they knew god was using Him mightily and i realize if i wasn't sick i wouldn't be here helping you guys get the word out about Lyme. So many people i know that need help with Lyme diagnosis like my sister, grand children with ADD and ADHD we have at least two children with ADD and it could be Lyme. I put my Healing on His alter of Grace and thank Him for showing me His sovereignty and i humbly except what ever role He has for me.

Christina - YES!!! Absolutely!! Calling those things that be not as those they are - works in both "realms".

I was watching a TV minister who said "speaking out scripture and calling those things that be not ACTIVATE your faith, but speaking negatively activates the enemy" Then he said, "Where are you today? What have you spoke over your life in the past? Are you living those things that you spoke in the past as though they were?"

I thought about this and so interestingly, I use to say to my husband after his surgery, "Are you going to take care of me one day when I am sick and bedridden?" What a weird thing to ask - I mean over and over. Also, I have always automatically said, we are broke, even if we weren't! I am living exactly what I spoke!

Words are containers of POWER - be careful what you say, it all starts with a "thought"! I am sure that is why the bible says to take captive every wrong thought and cast it down - because next we speak it. The bible says that life and death are in the power of the tongue.

So now...I walk around saying, "I AM healthy, wealthy and lack nothing" I also confess scripture which has so much power "I am healed by His stripes" - even when I can barely say it, I will whisper it. When the enemy comes against my mind and says you will never be well - I will now speak out against it, scripture like -I shall live and not die and tell of the marvelous works of the Lord!

Think about what your thinking and always listen to your words, are they life or death?

Excellent point Christina!

I like all the positive thinking, Please send some my may and keep me in your Prayers, i need a lot of convincing, this disease has a way of wearing down even the very strongest of Christians.

Peace.

Yes it does Johnny - but stand on God's word - I know what you mean. This is the ultimate test of faith.

I like the example I heard a minister say the other day, when Jesus was in the boat w/the disciples He told them 'We are going to the other side' - when the storm kicked up and Jesus was sleeping the minister made me laugh here..he said, "They had to wake Him up and basically were asking, are we STILL going to the other side?" Jesus of course answered, "You have such little faith".

Messages here - when Jesus speaks REST! He said we are going to the other side - the going through part is hard!

Love,
Dana
