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!
LOVED this presentation and the gentleness and wisdom you brought.
Today I got so many conformations and insights into where and what God is doing with me. The presentation is very relevant to this age and the answer to my prayer: Lord, bring refreshment!
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.
Scene 2 of the Daughter of Zion story really spoke to me - shame and guilt so erode the spirit. (It makes me think that) whatever is mentionable is manageable! Thank you.
Always grateful for you guys praying for me. I've been able to pray more . . . and a lot of the things we prayed about don't affect me anymore, which I'm really happy about!
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.
I am reading your book with tears streaming down my face. It resonates on so many levels. I feel as if I am being healed as I read.
Thank you for introducing me to so many incredible people. From that point on my world expanded and my ministry really took off! Thank you.
‘. . . refreshing, enlarging my perspective of God’s love-story’
I spent a few moments reflecting on (your blog post) as my work day started. I had so much more peace today than usual, and had less anger issues!
Your words were full of truth, grace, hope and authority. I needed to hear those words of faith and to recalibrate my spiritual compass.
Thank you for bringing me closer to God and (helping me) feel His love again. This day has taken my broken heart and made it whole again. I have found a new freedom in the Lord and I am filled with love and ready to share it!
I can’t believe it! I’ve had this knot in my stomach for over six months, and this morning when I woke up, it was completely gone!
Thank you, Anya, for the many, many hours you have poured over God’s Word. A most beautiful, peaceful, God-filled day.
‘Today felt like a great big cheer from the sidelines of a marathon.’
