Sometimes God in His wisdom does not immediately deliver us from trials but He reveals ways of how to go through something and carries us every single step! He teaches us Supernatural Strategies and He exchanges His strength for our weakness!”

Most of us are going through stuff, illness, hurt, lack of finances, or worse… But we are not going through this alone. God is with us every step of the way.
The Word of God contains the promises that God has given us. As you read His Word, He will unlock the words for you, take you on a gentle journey to start the healing process. A small puzzle piece at a time. He will meet you where you are, wash you in the Blood of Jesus, and gently show you the next step.
“I encourage each “queen” and “king” out there, dealing with ANY form of “pain” 24/7, to use your “pain” ( be it physical, mental, emotional, financial or relational, etc.) to touch others in their pain! I know it’s not always possible to be there for everyone, all of the time, because of your own “pain,” even those close to us, and it might break your heart. But we can be there for just one maybe….?
Read the words from Angie’s heart, days after having a major back operation, struggling with her own “pain”, but she decided to turn her PAIN into POWER!
Part of the reason I started this blog (diaryofhope.org), is because of the importance of giving our testimony, as stressed in several verses in the Bible. Testimony is a form of praise and honor to Christ. We also use it as a way to encourage others. And we can overcome the plans of the enemy by the blood of Christ and our testimony.
There are more ways we can triumph over the enemy and his plans, as outlined by this powerful vision by Mirjam Horak. We are called to pray specific scripture to release God’s light and blood into strongholds. Her vision is specific to South Africa, but the same principles and scriptures can be used in any situation.
We live in a time where everyone is struggling with different diseases of the body and mind that are really taking people’s joy and shortening their lives. This past weekend the Lord has started speaking and confirming specific things to me so powerfully that I have to share them.
What if that disease (be it in your body or a mental illness that you have struggled with for so long) can be healed with Jesus’s help, who can give you the strength to take captive the thoughts in our own minds that are making us ill? The secret to our healing lies in our own minds, and what thoughts we choose to give energy to or not.
There are a video series by Pastor Miles McPherson of Rock Church, San DIego and a Podcast series by Dr Caroline Leaf, a cognitive neuroscientist, both given the same weekend, on different continents, speaking about the influence you have to change your thoughts, your mind and your physical brain (which controls the rest of your body) in the process. Intrigued yet?
I know that I speak for SO many of us, when I say that we all need some miracles in our lives URGENTLY. God says in His Word that he is constantly thinking about us, He sees and He cares… When we are going though challenges financially, physically, mentally, emotionally, relationally, He cares and his 24/7 thoughts about us are actually also His plans for our lives! He says in His Word, “I am always thinking about you” and even “watching EVERYTHING that concerns you….” He is constantly looking after us and concerned for us, and actually making plans for us to prosper, in body, soul and spirit, and not to harm us, His plans are to give us a Hope and a future! Angie receives this Word from God to encourage us in our dark times.
The Word of God says that we overcome, by the blood of the Lamb, and the word of our testimony! And in this life, each of us have been through so many different experiences, and some of them could have ended very differently from what they did!
“You might still be experiencing challenging times! Too many people feel that they must wait for the perfect time, when everything is just perfect in their lives, before they use their story for God’s glory. But let’s be honest…..the only time everything will be perfect, is when we reach Heaven!
It’s devastating when we don’t see God’s answers to our prayers. “We cry in anger when we cannot feel Him near.” What if the very thing that is best for us isn’t the same as what we’re praying for? So if He isn’t answering our prayers how we think He should, does that mean He isn’t answering? Or could it be something else? Could it possibly be that He’s really blessing us?
If you are living a Spirit-Led life, but feel stuck in the wilderness with no way out, this word is for you. Angie shares what God has layed on her heart, highlighting the scripture in Exodus when God tells the Israelites to turn, even though that would lead them straight into an ambush! But God had a bigger miracle planned for that day, opening up the Red Sea so they could pass through. God once again showed His people that He was in control and He would lead them, and even if everything points away from doing it God’s way, God WILL come through for you, even at that last moment!
