Traumas anyone?

March 16, 2017

Hot off the press, barely have my eyes opened, and wanted to share an amazing experience I had this morning.

Several months ago I had a severe dizzy spell that went on for about 3 days. It happened when I would get up in the night to go to the bathroom, and when I reached the doorway of the bathroom I would start spinning. So I would hold on as I went to the bathroom… and waddled back to bed. The Lord reminded me that since that time every morning I would go to the bathroom I “anticipate” having a dizzy spell!!! That thought didn’t come any other time of the day, but only in the morning because that’s when the dizzy spell took place. That “trauma” became ingrained in my thoughts so that the bathroom triggered it all over again. I then saw what was happening, and this morning while going to the bathroom. I said to myself, “I think I’ll start using another bathroom so that thought won’t trigger a response of dis-ease in me.” Then The Lord met me!!! 

He began showing me that this is a mind-set towards the trauma that needs healing. Then I said, “Lord, I see I have this trauma. I never saw it before. Heal this trauma in my heart, and restore me to truth. disconnect this event with the bathroom so that thought doesn’t come up ever again when I go. I realize now it was a memory that was triggered by going to the bathroom. I cast out the spirit of trauma… in Jesus name. Amen.” And guess what, within minutes I knew it was gone!

I didn’t want to change my life to work around the fear of feeling that trauma all over again. I needed to get rid of the memory of that trauma so I can do whatever and whenever without a fearful triggered response. That is true freedom. So today, I chose to face it. Now I’m free…

I had to share this with you because this is practical. We all have things we stop doing because of something that happened. We stop going to certain stores, eat certain foods, visit various places, etc., because of a “trauma” that happened. Let’s get free from all this, which is fear based, and be healed in Jesus name so that we can visit those places again and be free and at peace to do so. The Lord may want you to go to those places again as He has an appointment for you… but if you don’t go because of that past trauma… who will?

I wrote a book called “Trauma’s and PTSD” and so if you want further details on it, that’s the booklet to pick up. I think I’ll be reading through it again myself! Because I want ALL traumas in my life… healed. No matter how small it is… as long as a thought keeps being triggered with dis-ease… there is a memory that is tormenting you. Face it today by seeing it for what it is and having a little talk with the Lord.


My Birth… again…

March 14, 2017

On March 6, 1977 I found myself at a little Baptist church and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Now 40 years later that day is still as clear as though it happened yesterday. Here’s how that day went:

I had a friend who’s kids went to Sunday School on a church bus, but she herself didn’t go. But one day she decided to go and received Jesus as her Savior. Well, she kept asking me to go time after time and one day I finally went. I was wearing a mini-skirt, spiked heels, and was hung over! But there I was. I was shaking the whole time and wanted to run, but my legs wouldn’t move. When the call to come forward for salvation, my feet moved in that direction. That day started a journey for me that I never ever thought was possible. But it also caused me confusion. I had suffered with anxiety and panic attacks for many years (starting at 15 years old) prior to becoming a Christian, and was so excited to be rid of all that. But that wasn’t the case at all. I still suffered. I wondered why I wasn’t healed now that I was a Christian because the Bible says that “by His stripes I am (past tense) healed.” So then doubt began to flood my mind that God doesn’t love me because another passage says, “God’s love casts out fear and torment.” So there I was, in a perplexed time in my life. And for the next 18 years I battled anxiety and stress and panic attacks – as a believer.

I was agoraphobic, was trapped in my mind. I was unable to do the simplest things like ride a bicycle, eat food, take vitamins, go in an elevator, travel, exercise, etc. Then one day something happened… I found the piece I was missing that led to my complete healing from anxiety, stress, panic attacks and phobia. It was when I was finally able to RECEIVE God’s love. See, as long as I was in doubt, fear was present. As long as I thought God didn’t love me, fear was present and it’s fear that causes the manifestations of anxiety and stress.

Now on this 40th year of Salvation, I am truly living the life I was meant to live. I’m not perfected, further from the truth, but I am loved. Peace reigns in my heart and mind now. Because I know for a fact that God’s love is real and very present with me and when I mess up God’s love pours through His Son Jesus to me so I can be restored once again.

I want to share this with you so you too can grab ahold of this for yourself. Perhaps you know of someone suffering as I did?  My book re-release is called “A Matter of the Mind… journey from fear to faith” is now available. It’s been updated and revised and shares how the Lord met me and healed me. I do believe that what God does for one, He will do for another, even you! You can pick this book up on my website at or

But this month I truly celebrate life… and the love, joy, peace and patience that comes when we truly have believed and received God’s perfect love for us.
