What issues were you dealing with? Be specific.
Chaos. Life’s joys and stressors were coming at me. Although I had peaceful moments, it was quickly overridden by the next event, which left me drained. I had no clear calling nor the desire and energy to figure it out. Even in life’s good moments, I was struggling for order. Turning to food as a counselor, distraction and comfort was only making matters worse.
How where they affecting you?
I believed it was all part of the aging process. I figured I was simply juggling life slower and wasn’t as ‘sharp’ mentally. Where we used word curses (strong willed, addictive personality, challenged, etc) we were seeing a steady increase in these behaviors within our family. Generational iniquities in our bloodline, such as addiction, we just assumed were a part of our story.
“It’s who we are.” mentality.
What changes have you seen?
The clarity of mind I experienced after the seminar surprised me so much. I was giddy for a few days while I adjusted. I immediately saw where I needed to change my parenting and regain authority. I was also surprised to learn issues in our marriage were ME! Haha I am learning how to allow and encourage my husband to operate FULLY in his anointed place without interrupting. It truly is a whole new world. We immediately stopped all word curses and while we are re training old habits, there is a marked difference in our family; how we communicate and respond to one another. The freedom from generational iniquities has given hope where there was none. Life isn’t perfect, but it is so much
One thing I didn’t expect is the immediate clarity of mind following the conference. Perhaps this is what is known as “the mind of Christ”. I’m in love with my new life!
