I’m Hurting Please Pray for me

I would be very Thankful for your Prayer Support again and I also would like to share why I have not been Blogging for over a week, although at first it was not intentional,  my Computer was being Serviced but  later I decided to take some more time out to Rest and Pray as I was feeling very hurt and not able to concentrate and so was not responding to all my Commitments with Blogging and at Home.

I have been abused for my Faith much more than once even by my Mother and family and although I rejoice in my Unity with Jesus who suffered greatly for us, it does hurt. Jesus was known as a Man of sorrows and He grieved and we will too.

Our Emotions are God given, they are not Sin but what we do about them can be, like holding onto Bitterness and Resentment and seeking Revenge which is like mixing Poison for those who have hurt us but drinking it ourselves, it eats away all the goodness in us like Cancer. 

This time I have been hurt by those I accepted as my New friends and Cared about, yes I’m a very responsive, sensitive and an emotional Woman. Although they are not Christians I still valued them as People of Worth as I do with everyone and so I looked for the good in them to encourage.  I also remember my Closest friends were once Strangers before they walked into my Heart and I always have this Hope with New friends too.

Yes only God  knows their Hearts and the Future and one day we may be United in Christ Jesus and spend Eternity together in Heaven with Him. But I was lied to by one of them which I did not accept as OK the same as I don’t accept all Sin if done by me or by anyone else, God tells us not to accept evil as good, of course we do not judge others by our Agenda but we do by His.

This Woman than tried to justify her Lie to me and to my other New friend and later to others that we knew. What she was trying to hide by lying would have affected not just me but others adversely too, which is why she had lied, she knew her advice had been wrong and would now cause problems and yet she did not warn us. Because I did not accept her Lie, I was than Slandered by both of them and called a Bible Basher and worse. 

I had Prayed before for an opportunity the share the Scriptures with them but except for sharing the Candy Cane Story with their Christmas gifts, mostly I have only shared about the Wonderful Love and Compassion that God has shown me even  when I was an Atheist, well I was in my thinking but not in my heart or I would still be one today. I was deceived as a young Teenager that I Evolved from an Ape and that our Abba Father in Heaven and Jesus who was my Best Friend and the Bible were just made up but Thankfully Jesus our Shepherd rescued me, a very lost and hurting Sheep. 

As a Christian it is also Sin when we have doubts about God’s Truth but we continue to reject Scriptural Help from Him. It is not Sin to have doubts but it is to reject the Confirmation of God’s Inspired Words for our own or others fleshy understanding and than to share it causing confusion and doubts in others, some even take out God’s Words in the Scriptures or add to them seeking to deceive, which they will answer for unless they Repent and put right the wrong they have done. 

2Timothy 3: 17 All Scripture is given by Inspiration of God and is Profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness: That the Man (and Woman) of God may be Perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all Good Works. (KJV)

As they say every Cloud has a Silver Lining, I would like to share something Wonderful  that happened this week too, which I am still amazed about……

Because of being trapped just before Christmas between my Scooter and a glass doorway after it suddenly accelerated , I now feel server pain whenever I bend down, the Doctor said my Mussels are damaged but they will heal in time. 

During this last week I noticed that between the cracks in the Pavement on the Driveway the weeds had grown up again and it looked very untidy and as it’s a Duplex and I’m not the only one who uses it something had to be done. So I Prayed and although it did take  time,  I had no pain and could bend down and pull out all the weeds even in the garden and along the fence too, yes the pain returned later but Wow when needed I could do the impossible, we don’t just believe in Miracles we depend on them and yes they are happening all the time even if we do not recognize them, Praise be to our God of Love.  

Please Pray for me now to Continue to Forgive and to Love those who have hurt me including these Woman and those whom they have gossiped to, one of them also abused me a few days ago, after I had asked if she and her Partner would like to come to Dinner.

Pray that they will all come to their Senses and Repent as I did when faced with God’s Reality, that  their eyes will be opened as mine were and yes Pray as you feel lead too. It is my Heart felt Hope they will also be set free from the Sinful bondage they are in but of course only God knows their Hearts and if they are His and this is the same with all of us which I will share about in my Next Post.

What did Jesus do when People were hurting, we remember that He cried with Martha and Mary even knowing that Lazarus would be alive and with them again within a short time, He shared their grief in Love and so renewed their Faith.

Thank you for the Love and Compassion and not just for Ron and myself but for others I have asked you to Pray for recently and over the years, including my furry friends and yes we have seen some amazing answers to these Prayers. 

It is True when people are hurting as confirmed below and as you have done, we show Love and Compassion offering our help when needed and wanted, not counting the cost. 

Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s Burdens and so Fulfil the Law of Christ.

Romans 12:15 Rejoice with them that do Rejoice and Weep with them that Weep.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ The Father of Mercies and The God of all Comfort; Who Comforteth us in all our Tribulation that we may be able to Comfort them which are in any trouble by the Comfort wherewith we ourselves are Comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

Thank you again for your Prayers and for your continued Faithfulness to Pray for all those who have need of your Prayer Support which I often read about on your Blogs and yes God Hears and Answers our Heartfelt Prayers according to His Good Will for us and those we Pray for.

Christian Love and God’s Blessings – Anne.

    Anne, relationships are hard, but God puts every person we meet into our lives for a reason and a season. I, too, know the pain of those who say they are my friends, who say they love me, hurting me deeply (yes, even men and women of God). I’ve found it sometimes necessary to walk away from them, especially in the case of blatant sin against my LORD. Other times God has said to keep on trying. Thinking and praying it through is always the answer. My heart breaks for you! Marie

    • It’s so good to hear from you Marie, I always appreciate your Love and Commitment to The Lord when you share in your Posts and your willingness to go the extra mile when needed. Thank you also for your Loving Compassion, no doubt it’s something that you often show to those who are hurting.

      Although I do agree with you Marie that God knows all those whom we will meet during our lives but not everyone of them is sent by Him because if they were this would mean that the 5 Men who molested me from the age of 3 which included being raped by a Doctor when I was not yet 15 were also sent by Him. God is Love and He hates all evil and His planes for us are very good which is confirmed in Scripture including the ones below.

      Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

      Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you says The LORD; thoughts of Peace and not of evil to give you a Future and a Hope.

      Others have also abused my friendship and kindness Marie as they did yours and yes including those in Churches too. God knew they would but He did not plan that they would or did He send them to me to do so but He Strengthened me so I could endure their abuse and to also be able to forgive them for it, which than worked for my good.

      This is because good and evil cannot Co – Exist so when we seek to put our Carnal flesh to death by The Spirit He empowers us to walk in His Fruit when we choose to do so and this puts our Carnal flesh to death.

      Yes our Abba Father brings good from what Satan means for evil and He always does this for us His Redeemed Children because we Love Him and are chosen by Him.

      Christian Love Marie and God’s Blessings,
      Anne ( Grannie Annie)

    • Thank you for Visiting Peter and what you shared is very True, even though the Scriptures also confirm that Satan controls this World but what he means for evil God can use for good, His Love is the most Powerful reality and nothing can overshadow it.

        • Thank you Peter for taking the time to visit and to share your thoughts, it is very much appreciated. I respect you as a Man of integrity Pete and know you seek after God’s Truth as I do, it is why I asked for God’s Wisdom and Empowering which none of us were Born with when I found myself very confused because those in Christian Ministry who were teaching others, were contradicting each other and also the Scriptures (see link below)

          Confusion- https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/my-battle-with-confusion/

          As we know Peter,God alone knows our Hearts and He also knew Jobs but Job was in error when he claimed God brought evil to Him, we know today that it was Satan who because of the fall he had the right to put Job to the Test and Tempt him to even forsake God but God knew he wouldn’t and He also strengthened Job who did apologize later for claiming God did evil to him.

          Everything good comes from God, He hates evil and even if we think something is evil it is because we don’t see the Big Picture, like with Noah, if there had been no World Wide Flood you and I wouldn’t be here today Pete and God wanted us to be, He knew us as His own even before we were conceived, He knows all things, I will be sharing more about this Truth in my next Post, if all goes well tomorrow.

          James 1:12-14 Blessed is the Man that endureth Temptation for when he is Tried he shall receive the Crown of Life which the Lord hath promised to them that Love Him. Let no Man say when he is Tempted; I am Tempted of God for God cannot be Tempted with evil, neither Tempteth He any Man But every Man is Tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed.

          Satan also puts us to the Test just as he did with Job, Abraham, Jesus, Peter, Paul etc and before we are Perfected in Love and Born Again we may fall into Sin but we are Sanctified, Jesus is our Advocate and will Intercede for us when we have Heart Repentance which is shown by our choosing to turn away from Sin by putting our Carnal flesh to death by The Spirit and seeking to do good.

          But some will also fall away, (Hebrews6) they are those who choose to reject The Lord to death and their lives will show they do but how can they be forgiven again if they reject the One who forgives them, it is the unforgivable Sin, it is blaspheming The Holy Spirit by calling Him a liar, He Glorifies The Father and Jesus to us, He shows us Their reality in Creation, no one who rejects Them will have an excuse.

          Peter please feel free to confirm whatever I share with you with Scripture and respond if wanted and needed. I don’t want anyone to follow me Spiritually, Jesus is our only Spiritual Teacher and it is also not my Role as a Woman to Teach in Authority over Men, it’s yours to be in Leadership under God, although we are One in Christ, my role is a Helpmate and with Blogging it is to share His Truth as He leads me to do, to those whom He brings to me or leads me to their Blogs, yes some reject what I Share and me too but I leave them to God and continue to Pray for them as The Spirit leads.

          Blessings – Anne ( Grannie Annie)

    Prayers and hugs – I hurt for you. God gave you a loving and caring heart – I will pray for His strength so you are able to forgive as Jesus forgave and to wait for His timing – until that time when God calls you to minister to these women.I have learned through similar experiences at times we are to step back and allow God to work. May God, our Father continue to guide you and encourage you in the power that only comes through His Son, Jesus Christ.

    • Thank you for your Loving Compassion Patty, It has been a very hurtful experience with her also lying to others about me and now seeking revenge too but as you shared Forgiveness is very important and yes every time she hurts me I ask Jesus to fill my Heart with Love for her, His Love, He died for her too even if for now she denies Him.

      The other Woman Texted me and asked me to forgive her and I asked her too because it seemed she was hurting thinking I didn’t like her anymore but I do, she believes in Jesus but was led astray by the other Woman who doesn’t.

      Patty did you receive my Christmas Card and New details? some of my other friends didn’t.

  8. Nice to hear from you again Anne. Please forgive those who have hurt you. I know you have what it take to do so. As the Bible has confirmed, the love of God is spread abroad in our hearts, so we can forgive.

    I wish you quick recovery from your injury. Remain blessed.

    • Thank you for your Compassion Victor, yes I always seek to forgive but until those who have hurt us say sorry, they can’t receive our forgiveness and this is the same with us, as you know we have to have heart Repentance even though God has chosen to forgive us by Sending Jesus to be our Lord and Saviour and to Redeem us and also Set us free from the Slavery of Sin.

      I haven’t shared about all their abuse and it continues but how they treat me is how they are treating Jesus, so please pray they come to their senses and yes I will Love them with the Love God has given me and seek to do good to them as lead by Him.

      You must have been thinking Victor that I have forgotten you and so do others no doubt as I have not been doing much Blogging. They were able to save my 400 Inbox e-mails on the Computer that crashed but Wow I’m still working through all of them plus the ones on my New Computer that I have downloaded but I will visit soon.

    Sorry that you’re going through this. It is difficult to know what’s going on on others’ minds, especially those who have no awareness of God, nor even any interest in anything beyond worldly existence. They may come across as friendly but their consideration lasts only as long as their gratifications and capricious interests. I’m joining with you and the others in prayer for your well being through this situation.

    • Thank you Jerickweb for your understanding Compassion and yes what you said is True but I also blame myself because as I shared with Diane below, I gave too much too soon and should have tested the waters more before diving in and giving my all but that’s me.

      Thank you so much for your Prayer Support, God is listening, one of the Woman texted this morning and said she was sorry and so am I, I still care about both of them but my Trust is gone, perhaps time will heal all and I will also Trust them again, as well as forgiving them.

      Jerickweb I hope you don’t mind me saying but your Comment looked like those in my Spam because you have no picture, they do make a difference for identification, I knew though you were not Spam because of your Godly Encouragement, Thank you again.

          You may also appreciate Jerickweb some more helpful tips that others have shared with me, like adding the Likes, some Read our Posts but don’t always Comment although they add a Like so we know they have Visited and I have done this too but some don’t read our Messages and just add a Like, perhaps so we will Visit them, also important is to reply to Comments on our Posts, people love a response, no one likes to be ignored besides Blogging is a two way street not a dead end, anyway that is what I feel about it others may differ.

          Thank you again Jerickweb for Visiting and Commenting, as I was reading a few more of your Messages on your Blog, I felt your focus is very much in Trusting and Obeying God, may you be greatly Blessed in doing so.

    It is so important to forgive those who have hurt you, then get beyond it. Do not dwell in that place, or bitterness can set in and that is a worse enemy. As you did in this post, set your mind on all the mercy and grace that God shows you on a regular basis. In all your ways acknowledge Him (Prov 3:6). You see this in the Psalms so often.

    Th previous comment is right on! Walk in His love and the troubles will fade away.

    • Yes I agree with you Pete, as I shared in my Message to forgive is very important but it is hard when the abuse continues as it has again today, this is why we can’t do it in the Flesh only as The Holy Spirit empowers us but it is our choice to choose to forgive and not seek revenge and as you shared, to keep focusing on The Lord.

      Thank you for Visiting and Sharing Pete, as The Body of Christ we do indeed need each others Support and yes Compassion too shown in Love..

  16. Hi Anne, it’s a good thing to hear from you again. My soul is lifted by your post. You see, our indebtedness to humanity is LOVE, that’s why we’re commanded never to finish paying it (Romans 13:8).

    Being born of God doesn’t just mean we’re products of God’s love, but beyond that, we’re Love just as He’s love, given that as He’s, so are we in this world (1 John 4:8, 17).

    No offense is greater or stronger than God’s love, which we’re. Go ahead and meditate on that love, allow it to gain ascendancy over you, let it affect your thoughts, words and actions. That’s my prayer for you. I trust Grannie Anne is getting better and stronger. You’re deeply loved, highly favoured and greatly blessed because you’re God’s righteousness in Christ and a life-giving spirit just like Jesus. Amen

    • Thank you Prosper Anang for your Loving and Kind words which you have often Blessed me with and yes I agree when we are Perfected in God’s Love and Born Again which we are all to Aim for as we work out our Salvation not meaning work for it, we will than indeed Love as He does because we will be as He is. 1John3:9 KJV

      Grannie Annie is feeling a lot better physically but grieving for her lost friendships and there will be more as these Woman continue to critically gossip about me.

      Of course my sharing is not always appreciated, no doubt like yours sometimes isn’t either Prosper Anang but God tells us this will be so for those who have itching ears, they will reject it because Truth in Love does not penetrate them when they are blocked by Sin.

      But mostly as I said in my message, it was God’s Love and Compassion in my Life not Scripture that I shared about with these Woman because I felt it was not the right time to do so, although yes these Truths are very much in Scripture but what the real issue was is I would not accept their Sin as OK, I didn’t share all the details of their abuse but I really want to move on now forgiving and leaving it all behind.

      I’m seeking to catch up with Posts again and there are many but I hope to Visit you soon Prosper Anang, I’m pleased you also don’t scratch itching ears, God’s Truth will always be Victorious where it counts most, He knows those who are His and not One of us will be lost or He would not have Chosen us to be conformed into the image of Jesus, which yes is Love, I will share more about this Truth soon.

      Christian Love Prosper Anang and God’s Blessings,
      Anne ( Grannie Annie)
