For years, as long as I can remember I have dealt with feelings of inadequacy and that I never measured up to what my parents or anyone else ever thought of me. Because of this, I have struggled with so many issues, some of which have caused me to suffer with my health. Because of the feelings of lack and never measuring up, I have for years turned to food instead of God to help me.
Consequently, I became morbidly obese. Because of the obesity and an injury to my back and knees, I have been operating my life at less than God chose for me.
I was constantly teased and cut down for being fat as a child and those wounds penetrated so deeply that it paralyzed me with fear and mistrust. I continually put up walls of protection and became very judgmental as well. The walls that I put up further isolated me from the things of God.
I don’t remember ever not knowing God. What I do remember is not living the abundant life that He promises us in Ephesian 3:20. The reason why I was not operating in the things of God is that I let all the things of my past and present stop me from receiving all the blessings He has in store for me.
It was such a hard decision to trust someone I didn’t even know to take me through deliverance. I had to let all my walls down so that I could finally receive from God.
I debated this process for well over a year because of my lack of trust in others. I can tell you that the final piece to the puzzle for me to be set free was when I saw one of my friends completely set free and become a “new” person after going through Above & Beyond’s deliverance minitry.
Phyllis is such a blessing to my life because of her love and trust for God to be used as His vessel to help make people whole. She so lovingly prayed for me and shared with me the steps I needed to follow in order to be delivered.
I can say with confidence, I am a “new” person who is now ready to tackle the problems I put upon myself with great confidence. Why? Because God told Phyllis that, “I get it all!” You can get it all too. Just trust and believe, then you will receive.
