You Are a Slave to Whatever Controls You
by Sheri Rose Shepherd

When you stop consuming junk food, your body begins to release toxins in order to rebuild healthy cells. This can cause you to feel sick at first, but when the detox is over you will feel more alive than you ever have before.

The same is true with your emotions. When you begin to let go of the emotional "junk" in your life, you may experience more pain in the beginning. But as you allow your mind and spirit to detox and begin to embrace God's best for you, it may take a while, but God will change this transition into real transformation. Some of us, like myself have denied and hidden things inside of us for so long that, after taking the steps to release these toxins, having a healthy mind and spirit can feel foreign. Be encouraged; this is only temporary. These steps are not always easy. You will have to fight your flesh to do what's right! Scripture tells us that our flesh wages a battle against the spirit (Romans 7). Take heart! The greater your battle, the greater your victory will be!

I believe you are going to find real freedom from today's teaching! So if you are ready to be free click the video link below!

God's Letter to You

I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this....

My Precious Daughter,

I want you to know that I am only one whisper away, My beloved. In those times when you need a special touch from Me, I will come and be your comfort and your healer. Because you are My girl, you have access to Me any time. I am never too busy to reach out to you. I love to hear you call My name when you're in need. Don't let your discomfort deceive you into believing I am not here. Believe that I am the one who can take care of you and who carries your burdens and feels your pain. I am compassionate and cannot resist you in your time of need. When all hope of healing is gone, you will know Me as the true healer of your heart and soul.

Your Heavenly Daddy

My Prayer for You

Dear God,
I lift your daughter up before you today. I ask that you would reveal any root that is ripping her off of the freedom you want her to experience and live. I pray you will give her the wisdom and strength to feel so she can heal. While she spends time in your presence today, bless her with the peace that passes all understanding and the joy that can only be experienced she can only experience in relationship with You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
