Don’t believe the lies

There are some things in life that sound far too simple to grasp and yet, for some reason are difficult to believe and take within ourselves. Believing that Jesus died for you may be an easier concept to grab a hold of, most people manage to grab hold of that. For many the offer comes along at just the right time, much like a beacon of light on a dark night or a life raft. So we cling to it with all of our might. But now what? There is so much more!

Following Christ isn’t sin management. It isn’t checks and balances. It isn’t getting all cleaned up on the outside, while still living in despair within. It isn’t a list of do’s and don’ts, even though many teachings out there will have you believe it is. “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36

You are infinitely free from all of the above. You are free to be you while you walk along with your Lord every single day. When you said yes to Jesus, you died and were raised to life with Him. The old has gone, the new has arrived, His Spirit lives within you. He is there for your benefit, to guide you and to shape you into your new likeness, if you are willing to let Him in on it. You still have the free will to say no, but why would you? Life with Jesus is a beautiful relationship, the most beautiful relationship you will ever have! He has nothing but good things to say about you. He adores you and thinks nothing but good thoughts about you. His will for you is always the highest thing possible, He wants you to reach your fullest potential.

“I can’t afford to have thoughts in my head about me that God doesn’t have in his.” Bill Johnson

You know how when you mess up, your mind begins to reel and the next thing you know, your whole countenance has changed from light to dark? It’s like a snowball. It begins with negative thoughts that then begin to manifest themselves as problems around you. You break a glass or you hit every red light on the way home or your spouse shoots you a look that wasn’t joy filled. The life that we experience begins with the thoughts that occupy our minds. If you are busy thinking illegal thoughts about you or someone else, your mind darkens and what you see around you is more darkness or negativity.

Changing your thinking isn’t the crescendo, it is believing what you are thinking. Many people believe in Jesus but they don’t believe Him. Yep, that’s right, they don’t believe Him. They don’t believe all the good things He says about Him. This is the hardest part, this is where most people miss the bus on living life abundantly. Why is it so easy for most people to believe the terrible things that are said about them and not the kind and truthful things Jesus says about them? Because their faith was in others, rather than the One who truly loves us. Their identity is found in others, rather than the only One who knows who we are inside and out. Once we shift our focus from others to the only One who truly knows, the opinions and words of others fall to the wayside.

This is freedom. This is the one thing that if we don’t get this, there will always be some sort of anchor attached to our legs. We may move forward a little but with great striving and grief, not with ease and grace.

“Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.” Ephesians 2:7-10

Hinge yourself upon this. I know I have shared this scripture with you before but it is infinitely important and applicable anytime. God does it, from start to finish. Say yes, that is all. With each step, say yes to Him. Anything you hear that is contrary to what He says about you is a lie. The lie may come from someone you love, do not condemn them but trust that the Holy Spirit within them will align them with all truth and simply remind yourself who you are in Him. That is all that you ever need to know about yourself, what He says.

Until we stop believing the lies, there isn’t much of a difference between us and the rest of the world. We can’t be tossed about by every word spoken over of, we are called to be different, to be certain, unshakable. This isn’t anything you can muster up on your own remember, God does it all from start to finish.

There is so much more to this blog, it will likely be multiple parts but I believe this is a good place to begin. I pray this blessed someone today, God bless you all!

“Cancer didn’t bring me to my knees, it brought me to my feet.” Michael Douglas

Cancer… What an incredible industry, diving deep into the pockets of many who get this diagnosis dropped on them. Not only does it threaten to steal your life but also your livelihood and everything you have known and loved but also every penny you have. Your life! Your life is perceived to be in jeopardy because of this invisible, faceless monster. Or is it?

I lost my grandpa to the treatment of cancer. Not cancer, the barbaric treatment of it. My other grandpa, one of the most respectable men I have ever known, died of leukemia, among other things that plagued his ever weak immune system. A former class mate, many other friends of friends, spouses of friends, the list goes on. Young or old, the odds are said to be stacked against us.

My husband was diagnosed with cancer in November of 2018. They had already decided he had cancer before he walked out the door the day they did a biopsy. We bit our nails for over a week before they called with results. The worst diagnosis was given, cancer. It isn’t metastasized and it’s considered stage 3. My reaction was, no. Not no because I was in denial but no because I refused to receive his diagnosis. Not in our home. Consultations with radiation therapists and chemo personal and a surgeon followed. We went to see our beloved chiropractor and dropped the bomb on her. She suggested we watch some documentaries, The truth about cancer. So we found them on YouTube and within 20 minutes, we both looked at each other with tears in our eyes, praising God because we found the answer that we were looking for. Alternative treatment. We continued on watching the series and even later ordered it. We both knew the conventional route wasn’t the way to go. Shocking as it is, that it is even still considered medicine, knowing that in the Hippocratic oath, it says to do no harm. Why then is chemo bio-hazardous and it gets injected into the body of a cancer patient? My biggest take away from the Truth about cancer series was when they said; when you have an ant problem in your house, you address the ants. You don’t put napalm on your house to extinguish them. Chemo is like napalm in your body, it wipes out everything!

Our search continued, it had to. We visited a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico, where my husband received better care and treatment for his diagnosis than he did here in the States. The first thing the doctor told him was; cancer does nothing, it just sits there. Either you feed it or your starve it. This was a far cry from the pressure the doctors put on us to get in for chemo; surgery and radiation. We have come to the realization that my husband has had cancer for years. A growth the size he had does not develop over night. His body just reached a tipping point where he went into acidosis. We found another Doctor here in the states who speaks on some incredibly revolutionary stuff! Lymphatic fluid and how it is the garbage removal system of the body. How often do you hear conventional doctors talk about lymph and the movement of it and how vital it is to your health? Not at all.

When you go to the doctor, they typically take your blood. Yes, there are many tests with blood that can be revealing. But do you want to know what is scary? My husband had blood work done with his regular practitioner, the doctor called him to go over his results. The doctor said, your blood work looks fantastic, I give you an A+. Here’s the scary part, that phone call was less than a week before his biopsy results came back. There was no sign of this so called cancer in his blood work! I am not trying to scare you my friends, I am simply trying to convey to you how important it is to educate yourselves! They don’t call medicine, “practicing medicine” for nothing. It is not an exact science. It is not a cure all. And there certainly is zero preventative medicine that is taught that is effective. This is one rabbit hole that you want to travel down, without going here, that 1 in 2 people statistic may be you or someone you love.

So, now you’re wondering, what am I supposed to do? Where do I begin? How do I prevent this from happening to myself or a loved one? Research. The real information isn’t on well trod paths. It is hidden.

“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.” Proverbs 25:2

Papa left us the answers. He foresaw “cancer.” He had everything prepared for the people who would search out a matter. It isn’t chemo or radiation or surgery (in most cases) He left us with all the seed bearing plants that grow from the ground. I’m going to speak more about our species specific diet at another point because this post would be much, much too long if I included it here. But there were some very specific reasons He told us what to eat. It wasn’t because He’s a mean Dad that doesn’t want us to have any fun and enjoy what we are eating. It is because diving outside of our diet, our specific diet, has rocketed us into a world of medical issues that are too many to name. Man’s solution has been cutting the problem out through surgery, medicating us with prescription pills that eliminate the symptom but never (EVER) address the root cause or using napalm. None of these 3 are an appropriate solution. Sadly, symptoms are our check engine light, without them, we wouldn’t know anything is wrong. If you cut the wires for that light and keep on driving (which is what prescriptions or surgery does) one day the car is just going to quit on you and unfortunately, so will your body. Always address the root of the problem, not the symptom.

There is a way to restore the body, by using it’s built in immune system, which is the way to recover and protect yourself from everything. Not shots, nor pills or surgery or napalm. Your immune system. Give your body what it needs and was built for and watch it glorify God because of what He designed it to do. We were designed by the greatest designer there ever was and is, Papa. I am just so impressed by Him, I truly am.

Here is a list below of some things you can read/watch/follow to get you started. Don’t be afraid. Cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence. A quick word about my husband, zero conventional treatment, not even the surgery that they said he absolutely needed. At his last scans, the imaging revealed that his tumor had shrunk. I promise I won’t send you anywhere that will tell you to stand on your head and drink pickle juice to get rid of your cancer. The list I will include will both educate and empower you. My husband and I have become sponges, sucking up every bit of truth so we can put it into practice in our home and also share with it other bewildered people who have had this diagnosis laid on them. God bless every single one of you!

Documentaries: Fed up; What the Health, Forks over knives, Bought, The truth about cancer, Fat Sick and nearly dead. I posted the movie trailers for those that weren’t available on YouTube, Most of these are available on Prime or Netflix.
