FREEDOM GRANTED

You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Exodus 19:4

Subtle attempt of the Crow to harass the Eagle

The above scripture is what God has done for me as I remember there was a time in my life when I was so steeped in negativities. I don’t know how it got to that point, but I’m sure it was by a subtle nudging from the enemy. Before long, my mind became weighted down with negativities. Even in my sleep there was really no rest. The wee hours of the morning which should have been a time of restfulness seem to be a time of great affliction. At this hour every problem in my life seem to come to me at lightning speed, financial issues, bad friendships, work, health; they were all there to weigh me down.

Crow still on the Eagle’s back

At this time I was seeking a relationship with God, but I still had my doubts as to whether He would really come through for me. Day after day I felt the slights of others, I felt my pain from bad health, I saw our finances fading, but in sorrow and anger I kept crying out to God. I kept asking Him when He would help.

Crow off the Eagle’s back

I don’t remember how long this torment took place in the wee hours of the morning, for I choose to forget it. But what I do remember is the day when Jesus showed forth Himself through the Holy Spirit. This I cannot put it into words, but I clearly heard the Lord say; “Leave her alone, you will no longer trouble her in this manner.” Something unexplainable occurred within and I was never afflicted in that manner again.

Eagle flies freely, carrying only a leaf in his talons

My torment of the morning has been replaced by the comforting words of the Comforter. He wakes me up each day, He strengthens my mind to seek the positive only. While situations do not always change, if we look at life through different lenses, we will see much beauty, where there was once darkness. Our burdens can be as light as a feather, or as in the case of this eagle, they can be as light as a leaf.

I am a Christian who believes in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I also believe that Jesus will soon return to this earth.

While I speak on Mental Health and Depression in regards to the Bible, I am not discouraging anyone from seeking the help of a professional for treatment. I am also not discouraging anyone from taking medication. Along with their treatment, I truly think the Bible and the Words within should not be discounted.
