But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 NKJ)

Note from the Editor:
While we hope to have this section up and running soon, please let me share my heart for all that you may be going through and where you may find help in this website for NOW, as I believe that the same answers for your pain and suffering is for ALL pain and suffering, and that is that the power offered up to us is the same to take away ALL pain and suffering. It’s promised to us and available for the asking. Below is my short story, and then some steps to walk you through any grief and pain you may be suffering.
Father God, Please help me in this time of loss and overwhelming grief. I don't understand
why my life is filled with this pain and heartache, but I will trust that you have
gone ahead of me and prepared a way to endure.
I turn my eyes to you as I seek to find the strength to trust in your faithfulness. I will wait on you and not despair; I will quietly wait for your salvation & deliverance. My heart is crushed, but I know that you will never abandon or frosake me but am at my side. Pour out your comfort and mercy upon my heart and bring joy in the morning as your word promises.
You are our shepherd Lord.. you meet all of our needs.. we lift those grieving to you today.We thank you for meeting all of my needs. I need rest so desperately and I need your strength to hold me through this grieving season. As you heal my heart, Lord, Please heal ALL of the layers of pain, leaving nothing left unrestored or unresolved.
Thank you for your love and mercy and light as you walk me through this dark valley. Carry me for I cannot carry myself. I receive you, I receive ALL that you have for me and I thank you for all that you will do and the blessings you are showering out now as I say this.
I prayed for him to not suffer so while I knew he had been in pain for quite some time, he was heavily sedated and had 2 days of listening to the words of love of those who loved him most of his life. Family came to the house and gave their wishes for him, stayed by his side night and day and he would flicker his closed eyes or raise an eyebrow now and then when people spoke so we knew he could hear us. I am 2000 miles away but he responded this way when my sister put the phone to his ear and I told him how much I loved him and how I would see him shortly in paradise, that I would see him soon. I believe that with my whole heart and being.
The Throne Room
See, I have seen the throne room -
I was in this massive cathedral type building only for an instance but felt the
power that raged and vibrated through the air as I stood behind tons of people that
seemed to be in a roar of what I knew to be worship but at the time, in that split
second, all I could sense was my own small-
Someone told me later that it was the “fear of the Lord” that I experienced. It wasn’t exactly a “fear” that I can identify here in human terms but it was certainly a reverence I had never experienced. I started to take the Lord’s word more seriously than ever before as I felt this type of “warning” in each tone now, unable to shove it aside for the things of this world. In a tiny way, it was like the words of warning my father used to give to me as a child because I knew if he said it, he meant business and I had only seen him get angry twice in my life and it was pretty scary.
There is so much more!
We cannot fathom what is beyond this life but the assurance of where my father is comforts me. I actually rejoiced and could find no grief for 5 days over his passing. I did have a day of mourning, grieving the lost years that I still wanted with him, and I know I will have more of those times, but I know that when I do, I can ask the Lord to come and take the pain away, that I can cry it all out, grieve it out, mourn it out as this is quite normal, but that then there is a time for rejoicing.
For every time there is a season.
Dear heart, the Lord knows your heart and cares deeply for it. If you’ve lost a loved one, a friendship and maybe even a job or possession that meant much to you, grief is quite normal and at times it may feel as if it will rip your heart apart and explode in pieces. I grieved the lost time with my father and I’m sure I will mourn again when memories come up but mostly it is of fond memories and then the joy of knowing I will see Him again. Whatever was bitter or bittersweet, the Lord has made new with assurances and shown me HIS love for my Father. He has also filled any “gaps” left behind in this loss.
Some people, uncomfortable with pain or fear it for fear that it would never stop, STUFF their feelings and deny them but in the end, the hurt will cause them to “react” to other stimuli and the spirit of fear will cause them to miss blessings or cause others pain. They think they are “handling” the loss quite well because they are moving on in life but in fact, the enemy digs in there with lies of his own and that is never the Lord’s plan for us.
There IS a process to mourning and grief but it’s quite simple and if taken through this doorway, won’t last forever. Some people grieve for YEARS and that is not the Lord’s best for us. While we may want the bittersweet memories of a loved one, for instance, the Lord can take the deep gut wrenching pain and make the bitter sweeter, as it is not His desire that we LIVE in pain. All we have to do is surrender our pain up to him, serve it on a platter and reach out and ask Him to take it.
The Lord Jesus will put HIS POWER, the same power that sustains the earth from the perfect distance away as to not fry us and close enough for us not to turn us to ice.
Sometimes there may be unresolved issues between one person and the deceased: unforgiveness; bitterness; lack of approval; unfulfilled promise; unmet needs....the list can go on. This is one more area that the Lord can change and RESOLVE.
ALL THINGS GET TAKEN CARE OF IN HIS PRESENCE.
We have to come to understand that God is sovereign and NOTHING happened apart from His Hand, providence and design. All that “needed to happen” did and it’s not His desire that anyone carry regrets other than to motivate them into where His path is leading them NOW. The Deeper we get into the Lord’s presence, the more we will be restored, renewed, see things from His perspective, receive Healing, power and anointing, and see ourselves in Him.
Before you go through any healing, remember that the enemy of your soul (Satan) would love to steal any deliverance that you get so it would be wise to make sure you have a prayer partner, councilor or friend who can pray this with you, stay awake through the nights and carry you when you get weak. (Build your “camp”) Remember that whenever two or more of us gather in His name, there He is also and ...whatever we ask for in His name, our Heavenly Father will provide.
Again, assuredly I tell you, that if two of you will agree on earth concerning anything
that they will ask, it will be done for them by my Father who is in heaven. For where
two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them."
Jesus cares deeply that you were hurt and can carry your pain but He has said that we will only be forgiven to the measure that WE forgive, and that all issues are up to HIM to determine what happens (revenge you may feel you deserve) so you don’t want that on your head for long.
Again, the pain words section can help you filter out what you’re feeling and walk you through receiving cleansing each time you recognize the pain rising.
Trust me in this! When I first tried this, I started at my hands one day in amazement at how beautiful they are, never appreciating or liking them before. I even wondered for a second if it could have had anything to do with anything I ate!
If there is any other issue in your grief and mourning, please know that the steps above that will lead you to the throne of all grace, love, understanding and mercy will help you receive all that is yours: all the lord’s promises; all the Lord’s power; all the Lord’s blessings; all that the Father has designed for you from the beginning of time.
Our Quick Start to Healing will give you steps to claim whenever you are upset or when things get wiggy.” I also suggest to go through the 5 Crucial Factors to Healing so that you understand what is available to you as well as what will be asked of you to receive healing. Then sift through our 4 Healing Rooms for articles, steps and aids that speak to your heart and circumstances. Do all of the “Power Tools” that you see throughout this site, usually at the bottom of articles, and follow the steps to RECEIVE from the Lord.
If you don’t know the Lord Jesus personally you can go here and learn about
how to enter into a relationship with Him. He WILL reveal Himself to you -
There is SO much more available to us and no eye has seen nor ear has heard all that is available to those who love Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9) SO grab all the blessings and healings that you can and receive His Joy and HIS love and HIS mercy!
In His grace & mercy.
Thoughts on my father’s passing
As I pull together this website and even as I write this, My father passed away and it’s been a long week of waiting and comforting. My father’s body couldn’t handle the battle that raged through it these last few years and while He was only 76, he struggled with diabetes most his adult life, which lead to kidney failure. Dementia caught on the last two years, which affects the brain, which runs the whole body and so everything started to shut down “from the control room” of systems.
