The Vomit Vision That Stopped Me 🤢

The Vomit Vision That Stopped Me 🤢

Have you ever found yourself repeating the same mistakes over and over, or doing something wrong repeatedly.

Even if you decided in your head you would never do it again and you know it’s wrong but somehow you still end up doing the same.

It could be a bad thought, a wrong act, bad words, an addiction like porn, smoking, etc.

If you feel bad and guilty, recently we shared an article on
3 Truths To Cling To On The Worst Day Of Your Life. Give it a read, but here I will tell you my story of how I overcame.

Vomit Vision,Vision from God,Hearing God

The Vision That Got Me To Stop

When I was in sin, all of me knew that I must not do it. I felt extremely terrible after I had done it and later would go and ask forgiveness from Jesus.

I was bound and it was in an unending cycle. But one day as I was reading the Bible, this scripture stood out to me: Like a dog that returns to his vomit is a fool who repeats his folly (sin/foolishness). (Pro 26:11 ESV)

This Word opened my eyes and had the power to show how wrong my actions were and how misguided my heart was. Now every time I would do the same wrong , I would see a picture of myself like a dog eating my own vomit.

Ewwwe! I know. But this vision made me so fed up that I ran to God and cried out for His help to overcome it.

And God did!

Can’t Do It Alone!

God doesn’t want you to depend on yourself to overcome but depend on Him.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Cor 12:9)

God knows your weaknesses. He will carry you in this journey of overcoming wrong, addiction or bad habit as long as you surrender and lean on Him and say ‘God no more I but you who lives in me.’ (Gal 2:20)

Let go and let God take over you. Let Him have all of you, today!

Read Psalms 101:1-7 and speak it out loudly. Do it over a few days with your heart attentive to every Word and see the Word of God transform you.

Why I Gave Up on Non-Christian Media

Why I Gave Up on Non-Christian Media

stay away from non christian media,guard your eyes,guard your ears

If you had met me any time before two years, and we were to have a conversation, sooner or later, you would realise that I was really into movies. I was the kind of person who bragged about my movie collection- horror, sci-fi, Korean dramas, medical series, RomCom, I had it all! Hours of my time was spent on watching and re-watching these.

Here’s my story of how I overcame this love of my flesh.

When I was in my third year of college, a friend invited me to attend church with her. This church was unlike my traditional orthodox church. The presence of God was so evident. I didn’t comprehend it fully that time, but I knew something moved in me and I wanted to know God more.

When God convicts, Listen!

One of the first convictions I had after this encounter with the Lord was regarding my love for non-Christian media, be it movies, series or songs. I knew the Lord was speaking, but my flesh and my soul argued- but it takes my mind off everything else, it makes me feel good, everyone watches it Lord! But the Lord remained silent to my tantrums.

Few months later, I was taking a stroll one evening with a friend from the same church. As she shared with me, her encounters with the Lord, my heart was burning. I asked her what she thought about non-Christian media. She just said this, “If the Lord is convicting you, you must listen to Him”.

That conviction sank deep in my spirit, and now it began a good work in me. As I kept seeking God, He opened my eyes to things I couldn’t perceive before.

Here are two main reasons I feel why non-Christian media is toxic:

1. Manipulated perspective

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he”. Proverbs 23:7

The eyes and ears are windows to your soul. What you constantly watch and hear alters the way you think. Worldly movies make Christianity look boring and wickedness look fun and exciting. They excite your senses and manipulate your emotions.

I was addicted to one of the popular comedy series years back. One day, when I was with some friends, they played an episode of this series. One of the actors cracked a joke that was directly against my Christian faith. Initially I laughed but then soon I realized what I was doing. I decided in my heart never again to watch it again. This was my first big breakthrough!

I have heard countless stories of how this media is addictive and can cause irrational fears and anxieties to develop within you. These have an innocent, glamorous appearance on the outside, but at the core of it is darkness.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” Matthew 6:22-23

2. Irretrievable Time

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

The enemy knows that your time is precious, and he will do everything to steal it. A study shows that the average person spends more than 78,000 hours of their life watching television. Don’t allow the temporary pleasures of this world to steal your time, which once lost, cannot be retrieved.

“Show me, O LORD, my end and the measure of my days. Let me know how fleeting my life is. You, indeed, have made my days as handbreadths, and my lifetime as nothing before You. Truly each man at his best exists as but a breath.” Psalm 39:4-5

Over the years that followed, the closer I got to Jesus, the entertainment of this world got dimmer and dimmer until I no longer desired it.

I believe you are not reading this by chance. If there is any bit of conviction in your heart regarding this area of your life, I would say, Ask God to reveal to you, what you cannot see. Only He can fill the vacuum of your heart and give you a life of abundance!

What My Burnt Hand Taught Me 🔥👋🤕

What My Burnt Hand Taught Me 🔥👋🤕

Read the Word,Obedience,Obey,Character building

Recently as I was cooking, I happened to uncover the lid from the cooking pot in a hurry and whooosh..the steam came out in the direction of my hand and burnt it. I screamed with pain while my mom looked at me and laughed. Initially I was confused at her response, but then I realised a month back, my mom had given me instructions on how to uncover the lid from a pot that is filled with steam using a spoon. (For those who don’t know  – First I had to slide the lid to the side with the spoon , let the steam come out from the other end and then hold the lid with the cloth on the other end and ta-da!) I didn’t remember this instruction before doing it but when I got hurt I remembered it very well.

God’s instructions are our protection

And that’s our story!

Most of us don’t heed to God’s instructions and open ourselves for hurt , pain and discipline. It’s the hard knocks that brings us to realisation.

But better is to obey an instruction than face a destruction.

Whoever despises the word and counsel [of God] brings destruction upon himself, But he who [reverently] fears and respects the commandment [of God] will be rewarded. Proverbs 13:13 AMP

 

Instructions? Where do I find them?

If you are like me and you want to avoid the hard knocks you need to hear instructions!

 

Here are four tips to not miss instructions:-

1. Read the Bible every day. God speaks in your situation and will instruct you before you face the situation.

2. Meditate on what you read, understand what God wants to say to you and then apply the Word of God in real life.

3. Listen to the Word of God when shared by a man of God. Now that globally most of the church services are happening online, it’s so easy to get distracted in the comfort of our homes. So be super intentional when you are joining a service. Go to your study room and not your bed :p Take a book and pen and note things down or comment on the video what you have learnt.

4. Be accountable to your leaders. Your leaders have walked more than you and seen more, ask them for advice and wisdom. Write to them or call them. Don’t take your leaders for granted, they are kept there for a purpose. The more you ask, the more wisdom you draw from them.

I Don’t Like My Smile

I Don’t Like My Smile

Identity issues

“A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.” (Proverbs 15:30 NLT)

When I was younger, I smiled and giggled at every silly thing. But one day, a random stranger commented, “She looks good, but her teeth are jutting out”. My friends, who heard this statement repeated it every time we met and made fun of me.

I was only a teenager at that time, and that statement scarred me. I became conscious of my teeth every time I smiled, talked or laughed. So much so that, I even changed the way I smiled for photographs.

This incident left a deep scar in me.

When I had an encounter with God, I realized that God loved me so much that He was willing to heal me of every visible and invisible scar. I could sense the sweet Holy Spirit nudge me every time I smiled and was reminded of that stranger’s statement, until one day I surrendered that scar to Jesus. He touched me and I was healed.

Not only this, but wonderful Holy spirit reminded me of my identity, I am Royalty!

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light (1 Peter 2:9)

Hey girl, even as you are reading this, let me remind you – You are beautiful inside and outside, any shape or color. In the eyes of God – You are beautiful, You are Royalty!

And know that there is no scar so deep that God can’t heal, no mistake so bad that God can’t forgive, no problem so big that God can’t solve. All that God needs is your surrender.

And know that you don’t have to do this alone, we are with you.

If you are struggling with a similar hurt or scar, we encourage you to write to us at [email protected], and we would love to pray with you.
