“Lord I KNOW that you can meet all my needs...or take them away!”

“Lord I KNOW that you can meet all my needs...or take them away!”

    That was my “mantra” in the shower this morning. I had been “stewing” all weekend.  Sure I knew that I could go through a “2 minute cleanse” and die to my frustration and decide to make the choice to turn it over to the Lord’s control, but this felt too good, felt right, and I felt I had a “right to my anger”, which I think I did, after all, a woman has “NEEDS”, doesn’t she?

“Lord I KNOW that you can meet all my needs...or take them away!”

I made the decision then and there to give it up.  I knew that all I had to do was be willing to give up my pain, and the Lord would insert His supernatural power into it and take it off of me, help me see another view, and I would be fine.  I knew I had to die to my anger and hurt, and the cross is always the place to start.

Let others off the hook!

So what if that person doesn't know any better, is already doing the best they can, and can do no more? “But I TOLD them what I needed” you may say...and I may then say “yes, but again, what if they are doing the best they can do?”.  What if that person is not in the same place as you are with the Lord and dealing with things?  I took 10 steps backwards when I “decided” to hold onto my anger.

Is the Lord able to look after our needs?

YES!  He can do ALL THINGS, and to look at another human for any satisfaction in fulfilling them will set us up for disappointment.  He can even pour out love, acceptance and understanding, comfort and safety, well-being and a heart that is pure and at peace.

We have a CHOICE to hold onto
               what we’re holding onto.

In a couple of the articles I mentioned a dear friend who used to say “you can hold onto that if you want to”, whenever I was frustrated at my situation.  I would get even more angry at her saying this because I thought “surely, you do not mean that you believe I CHOOSE to be angry and frustrated?  That my trials and issues are not real?”

It took me a long time to truly understand and believe that God DOES care for my pain and is willing to take it, bring healing, and give me peace as soon as I am willing to lay down my pain, surrender it and give it up to Him. All I had to do was choose.

If you have any heartache or pain, walk through the steps in our 2 minute cleanse   and receive the Lord’s healing into that situation.  

“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (Deuteronomy 31:8 )

"And the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind." Isaiah 58:9

for the LORD will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared. (Proverbs 3:26)

   He goes before us, is at our side and has our back, and there is no good thing that He will withhold from you so trust Him for your ‘needs”.

The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger, but those who seek Yahweh shall not lack any good thing.  (Psalm 34:10)

For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly.  (Psalm 84:11)

behavior and to encourage her to know that she will be blessed for HER good behavior (sound familiar? If I could only take my own advice)

It just made her angrier!

She left, totally disappointed that she couldn't just pour out her anger and have me listen.  I tried to tell her that as a mother, it was my DUTY to help her and to allow her to sit in anger is not helping her but would only make things worse.  She had mentioned the healing that I had gotten ( yeah right) and how others are so stuck in their pride and focused on themselves (could we HEAR ourselves?!) “that all they do is hurt others”, she finished

“ we are doing now”.


    I started thinking about MY hurt and MY pain from some hurtful inattention and then I started thinking about all I pour out to others and the sacrifices I make on a regular basis, dying to MY needs to look at the needs of others.  It sounds like a recipe for something really good, right?  This would be a great place to receive blessings, to see what God can do THROUGH us and then to know that I would be blessed for doing the right thing, the “CHRIST thing”, the Godly thing.

But it didn’t turn out that way.

    Just like making a stew, all of these yummy ingredients go into it like carrots and onions, potato's and a nice size roast.  None of them are all that good on their own, unless seasoned...and cooked (tempered with heat).   Each of the ingredients need some work also, before going into the pot together, like the potatoes and carrots that need to be peeled and onions: sliced.

      Well I was making a stew, counting up all I do for someone and how it all took a lot of work to bless them...but I didn’t let any “refining fire”  of the Lord’s do a work in me, I let it “stew”: cook and cook, left unattended I let those thoughts turn to ME and all I was NOT getting, and how much I “NEEDED” attention, feeling justified in my hurt, which turned to frustration, which turned to anger, feeling someone was holding out on me that which I deserve.

     The heat rose higher as the Lord pressed in more and more.  I could feel it: I felt like I should give this up to the Lord before it destroyed me; felt that if I shared it with another, it would hurt them; felt that I would ruin the day as I came to a mood and attitude which I may have a hard time getting out of, which would hinder any healing that I would receive.  

And then I BURNT the stew!  

     It started stinking up the whole house. That “someone” called and sensed something was wrong and when I said I was not doing well emotionally, they asked what’s going on...and I told them.  I knew I hurt their feelings...but mine were hurt, right?   I know they didn’t intentionally try, but that didn’t matter to me at the time.

   I brought that “burnt stew” home.  I had work to do and didn’t talk to anyone, and I thought I was doing better because I FELT better, but ignoring a “heart issue” doesn’t heal it or make it go away, it just turns into a “heart disease” .

I brought the enemy into the house.

    I was in sin...and I brought the spirit of bitterness into my house.  My house felt possessed, taken over.  I knew I should resolve this and bring it to the Lord but I thought I could ignore it and it would go away.  Not much later, my daughter came downstairs, frustrated at the slight of some others who really did reject her and it turned into a “me-fest”.  I know she was hurting and she had every tight to hurt but it was obvious that she also didn’t want to give up her pain.

     So as any mother would do, I tried to make it better. I tried to show those who DID love her and whom the Lord DID bring, the blessings that He was showering out to her, to help her “release” the others in their bad
