My anxiety has been getting worse for years, but in the last few weeks, it got unbearable. I was going to the doctor every day, couldn’t drive, and was constantly in fear. Bringing it all to the Lord together was hard but it has made the biggest difference. For the first time in a long time, I went home completely at peace, my mind is calm, and I am beginning to feel like ‘the real me’ again!
Wow - thank you for spending 3 HOURS!! praying with me. When the Holy Spirit showed me the moment that led to the problem we were dealing with, it made perfect sense. That was incredible. Now that the stronghold is gone, it’s amazing how even things I thought were not related, have changed. One unexpected bonus was how much freer my husband and I were in worship after that. So good!
I read Anya’s book and didn’t realise it was based on a marriage story (I’m single, so didn’t know if it would be relevant to me at all). But suddenly, as I read, I found myself in tears, as if the Holy Spirit was unlocking something in me, and I suddenly realised that He wants me to communicate with Him personally too. Thank you for being brave and sharing your journals!
In the middle of the retreat, God gave me a clear picture of what He wants me to do in my community! Having the women gather around and pray into that was amazing. And thank you for the personal prayer too - I’ll let you know when I get my miracle!
Jeff and Anya - Today has brought a lot of confirmation about where the Lord is leading me. I have not used my giftings for a long time. I have experienced rejection from leadership, felt unworthy, like I had no place. Praise God I felt free today. Your word was timely.
I woke in the night, not knowing what to do about (a problem). the Holy Spirit said, turn to page 24 of Anya’s book. I picked up her book, turned to that page, and what she wrote there was exactly the word I needed to hear!
My relationship with my family has been strained for years. I never realized that it was (a stronghold of) rejection, but the Holy Spirit showed me when we prayed together, and when I broke it down, I felt like a free person straight away. Then the next day my brother called me and invited me to go to a family lunch! The amazing thing was, I wanted to go! We are so healed! Thank you, God.
