  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

    I like your concept of "the four camps". Anyone who is regarded as successful in life has one or more of these four temptations to deal with. Will they be used to help others and bring God's will and desires to fruition or will they be used selfishly?

    Your poetry is wonderful; very thought provoking. A gift from God.

    Good news. You will do just fine. Don't let nerves get to you or overthink things.

    If the likes of me was able to successfully yank an 80,000 lb rolling bomb all over the country for 28 years and make a good living at it I can assure you that you will do well with your driving test.

    Thanks for he compliment Ron. I hope that my creative one inside will rise from the dead soon. I was basically killed in that self 5 years ago when I went on medication. I traded my creativity for a stable mind at the time. And although it has been worth it, I've written only a few poems since then, compared to how they used to simply flow out of my heart - often to my own astonished consternation while writing them.

    I know the four camps are not hard to see in our day and age, however even those four camps, once known in the our day and age as the ruling middle class, has now completely merged into one main encampment. The dragon has surely come into sight and God's holy ones are dying inside of people every day and no one seems to care whatsoever about that. When the power of the holy people has finally been broken then all of these things will become clear to us I know from experience.

    There is so much more to be said Ron. One thing I have come to realise, and that is that a lot of brothers and sisters in Christ have a very poor diet. Hardly understanding/eating any of God's Words spiritually unless they dappling with 't evil eye instead of God's spirit of truthful love, ruling our hearts and minds. The four forces of God's good - the truthful side of things is described in

    Zechariah 1:18-21 and chapter 2 as well
    Then I looked up, and there before me were four horns. I asked the angel who was speaking to me, “What are these?”

    He answered me, “These are the horns that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.”


    Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen. I asked, “What are these coming to do?”

    He answered, “These are the horns that scattered Judah so that no one could raise their head, but the craftsmen have come to terrify them and throw down these horns of the nations who lifted up their horns against the land of Judah to scatter its people.

    Then I looked up, and there before me was a man with a measuring line in his hand. I asked, “Where are you going?”

    He answered me, “To measure Jerusalem, to find out how wide and how long it is.”

    While the angel who was speaking to me was leaving, another angel came to meet him and said to him: “Run, tell that young man, ‘Jerusalem will be a city without walls because of the great number of people and animals in it. And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within.’

    “Come! Come! Flee from the land of the north,” declares the Lord, “for I have scattered you to the four winds of heaven,” declares the Lord.

    “Come, Zion! Escape, you who live in Daughter Babylon!” For this is what the Lord Almighty says: “After the Glorious One has sent me against the nations that have plundered you—for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye— I will surely raise my hand against them so that their slaves will plunder them. Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me.

    “Shout and be glad, Daughter Zion. For I am coming, and I will live among you,” declares the Lord. “Many nations will be joined with the Lord in that day and will become my people. I will live among you and you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you. The Lord will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land and will again choose Jerusalem. Be still before the Lord, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.”


    So much prayer is needed - that God's love may indeed spread across this planet wiping out the wicked ruling down here.

    Much love brother.


    Oh Come, Glorious Judgement!

    Judgement Day begins when you meet up with Jesus,
    He will search out your heart completely,
    dividing the sheep from the goat!

    He will address your inner lovelessness with His love,
    and chase the clinging coldness away,
    from death setting your soul wholly free!

    Truly Judgement Day, is a day of ecstatic joy,
    freedom for all those hurting and killed,
    Only His Loving Truth ruling your inner reality.

    Bad religion shall no longer cause any bother,
    As His loving joy now finds deeper root,
    Lush growth replacing all the deadness!

    Yet Judgement Day will be the end of your fear,
    As no terror may travel on The Way,
    All of you in union, praising the Lamb!

    Your big I, gets new function in the rear,
    Loving Jesus ruling as king in place!
    You loving our Heavenly Father dearly.

    In all your life's deeds The Son you'll meet,
    Answerable for all that you have done,
    In good and bad His truth visiting you!

    Judgement Day is about being rightly placed,
    good and loving upfront - to B(b)e -
    all bad behind - passing away!

    Krissy, you have experienced this before, and God has carried you through. You will weather this episode also. I am sure you are aware there are suicide help lines available. Also perhaps a trusted friend or relative.

    I know it may seem trite and of little value when we are hurting and feeling hopeless and helpless and someone says I will pray for you, but I mean it and I will.

    Prayer is useful and powerful, though we sometimes don't feel or see it's effects from our limited perspective. Jesus spent much time in prayer and drew strength from it.

    What you are most likely feeling is your brain acting up and misfiring. See these thoughts for what they are-thoughts. Your brain is spewing out garbage now. Let it pass and don't act on anything. If you are on meds, sometimes they don't always work as well as they should.

    I am going through something now I should be on top of; I am capable of it, but I'm not in control. Depressive, negative "I can't" thoughts pouring from my mind tie me in knots and hamper my success at something I know I can accomplish. I decided I'm turning this around with God's help today.

    Slog through it, Krissy...you can do it. Even if you have to shoot up a "Help Me!" prayer every 5 minutes at times. This is temporary; you will overcome it. :clap:

    Thank you for sharing.:hug::pray:

    I may have sorrow, and the darkness of this world may come against me, but it cannot prevail. If my lot is sorrow, then I will learn profit in it. All things work good. God is the beauty that I look to when things seem so unpleasant , I will not cast away my confidence, but will learn to wait upon the Lord. This world is utterly confused and hopeless, so that makes it easy to hope in something else, therefore I wait upon the Lord.

    Is our world broken down and desolate? Does confusion and fear hang overhead like a dark cloud of despair? Count your blessings then because the Lord shines ever brighter in such places. We can learn to persevere, and to wait upon him. Colossians 3 says we have already died and our life is hidden with Christ in God.

    Consider yourself dead and raised then. Dead to hopelessness, raised in hope. Dead to fear, raised in peace. Dead to depression, raised in joy. Don't let the grave destroy you, instead destroy it by faith in Christ. This faith is simple, just die to worry and wait upon the Lord.

    The apostle paul said to fight the good fight of faith, and to put on Gods armor. Sometimes I feel I must fight against my foe, this world, not with carnal weapons but spiritual ones. David overcame the Giant. With Gods help, so will I.

    The Bible says everyday we're gonna have trouble, do don't worry about things you add on. So we should give that trouble to Jesus. So that trouble is dead and we rise in getting gifts for keeping our faith in Jesus.

    Amen, brother. I really like Sons of Korah. Jeshu put me on to them.

    Here is a shot of my newly created prayer/meditation spot. I own the woods and there is wonderful seclusion.....just to get away from phones, internet, dogs, traffic and other distractions.....even my beloved and theraputic music for a little while. (Lol-I just noticed the crosspiece on the cross looks uneven but it's an illusion. I'm actually a little better with a hammer and nails than that!) :)

    I believe it was Jeshu who first turned my attention towards SoK as well. I love their music and the Psalms as well.

    Even if your cross was uneven it wouldn't matter, because the Lords cross was probably uneven, rough, hand hewn lumber. Its more realistic if its imperfect. :)

    My meditation spot is in my little garage, where I like to sit and meditate.

    Rest in Peace Ron!
    That is an awesome shot brother. My heart rejoiced to see the blacksmith preparing his workplace. Holy Holy Holy unto The Lord Ron. You will be baking The Bread there brother, please make sure that you get to know Zerubbabel brother and of course Joshua before you begin to built the Temple. The mountain has to be leveled first. Not by might, nor by power but by my Spirit says The Lord. This is of utmost importance if you want your plans to succeed - Remember the plumb line Ron. That is why Zerubbabel is so important to get to know well, without him everything will be crooked but we want it perfectly straight. We can never trust ourselves to do that rightly if you know what I mean.

    I have been well Ron otherwise. Learning a lot.

    I just made a peace treaty with my God believing grand father. We have both understood the purpose of our lives together like this, and marvel the unbelievable love and wisdom Jesus is giving us while we collect the lost in us on our way down. My grand father agreed to be on the look out for the lawless ones. He assured me that was his purpose all along and I agree that this is so. For that is where he has a really sharp eye for.

    Jesus told us with a smile that Opa will be the very best person in the universe to do that job and we both agree with our Lord about that, after what we have all seen Jesus reveal in us. Oh did my grand father swell with pride in God when he saw his salvation. And so good to have him as a friend instead of foe. It is mind boggling awesome that is all I can assure everyone. No need to ever doubt God's loving truth again that is for sure. Finally my mind has come to rest and the horrible voice that kept abusing, screaming threatening, scorning, hating and defiling me has finally gone forever out of my life. Can never tell anyone how great a relief that is.

    I know my grand father will do a good job - lawlessness has been my biggest curse and he knows it. (in sinful spirituality he caused me to become like that for I rebelled against my grand dad's loveless ways right from the day first I met him like that, ) so in this way he and i in Christ are actively undoing the harm sinful spirituality has caused us. So good to see Jesus allows us to undo all that, as well as live His revenge on the wicked, as Christ destroys them on our way down trying to stop us from unwinding their lies from our lives together.

    Having my grand dad on his throne beside me like that is perfect really. He also promised me to teach me to play the organ and pleaded with me to get one. I told I can't effort one right now and that I have other things on my mind right now, but that I'm open to such ideas in the future. Opa sings psalms and hymms all day long. Do I recognize my Opa now, I tell you. I love him. For the first time in my life I love my grand dad and am not scared of him anymore

    . However in his sin hardened self things have not been well. As a matter of fact I feel nauseated just thinking about it and realise I have to get away from there - honest it is a burning pool of hateful fire. I feel sick to death in my gut watching it. I have never met pure hate before but I have now. I know I've been watching satan in his raging fire down there. I don't know how such can live in me it makes me shake and feel so sick. I can't wait till we have dropped that horrible dragon off at Jesus feet at the full stop of our journey together. All that horrible devil wants is for us to let him go, but there is no way we are going to that. The rotten loveless lying thief is coming along - no matter how sick i feel - he's stolen our lives when in our folly we heeded the liar and now reap this horrific death as reward for doing that. So unbelievable grateful that this is what Jesus saved us from. If people only knew how evil satan truly is.

    Sadly my other grand father is basically a lifeless mummy. It is awful really the trap satan got him in. He has as good as no life in him, he lost basically everything he has ever been. The weird thing is he keeps apologizing for killing me, but I don't know why he is wailing me, for he should be wailing Jesus. I'm so upset he is so dull.

    And not only that he keeps taking me back to very early on in my life when I visited him one day and I sneaked into the backyard and ate some berries he grew there. I loved those berries I tell you as a kid. He court me out and told me off. Yet now, can you believe that? my grand dad is wailing that! He think he did me harm. And it doesn't matter how much I hug him and tell him that nothing bad happened, he is frantic about telling me otherwise. He was such a soft hearted kind man he would never do me any harm. Yet he says he killed my child in me. I certainly don't understand him about that, I have no recall of that at all.

    Otherwise all I can see is him sitting beside me staring into the darkness all around wailing his stupidity not believing in God and loosing his life like that. I've assured him we will get everything back, but he doesn't seem to have that much hope good will come, though he keeps asking where his wife is. I've told He will have to wait as this is the male line in me and we are a very long way from her as she is in Heaven praying for our safe return.

    Poor man I do really feel for him, though I know he gets what he deserved being like that for he allowed satan to steal his soul - so what can he but be lifeless? Yet it is so sad really for he wasn't a bad man at all otherwise. I'm so very thankful Jesus died for my grand dads sins and will restore him to me and us all, as hades is emptied of all the good life stolen by that lying thief we three have been fornicating with down here as sinners. What can we do but wail the truth of our sin? For as Jesus retrieves our lives in our willful sinner self we loose the spirit/essence that gave us life like that and are renewed by Christ to bring forth good and loving instead of wrongful selfishness building godforsaken egos and so the grapes are pressed and both the blood and the new wine flows and all we can do is watch the truth of our bad life burn up and release that what was stolen to us.

    Isn't Jesus amazing brother?


    Otherwise I'm doing fine. I'm sleeping a little more than I have. Last night I got about 5 hours in one go I think. The best I have done for weeks. As things progress the tension lessens and I become calmer within myself all the time. A lot of nausea keeps coming up and I have nothing to treat it with which is not so nice but, otherwise I feel better than I have for years and have more hope than ever.

    I have also been battling on face book and have gained both friend and foe. All I can think about is spreading the gospel of grace and pray for the suffering in this world. Amazingly yesterday I commented on a post on facebook and got 40 plus likes in less than hour and about 11 comments - most of them challenging ones - one even hailed the devil. I never experienced that before. Mostly people don't care what say or think and I get very few likes or otherwise for what I say and write even from my own family this can be like that. I saw this morning that the likes had risen to 90 something but no more comments apart of likes for answers I gave. I found it an interesting experience.

    Any way I'm going to have a cuppa I hope you have a blessed day brother.

    Peace.

    So good to know where you are brother. I got a back room my son build for himself but since he left it has been the junk room ever since and perfect for someone like me. This is where I spend a lot of time praying and meditating but I'm just inside the house mostly though. Our dog Shado is almost always with me and is perfect as guard dog fro she responds to the spirituality in and around me like I have see no other animal do ever. Jesus advised me to keep a very close eye on her and I have already heard so much good news when it comes to pets and all creatures great and small that I understand why Jesus would have impressed this on me. The death of our other dog is still a mystery to me, especially that she ate dirt before she died, not sure whatsoever why that was. I have missed her but not as bad as I thought I would.

    Shadow is a perfect replacement of Roxy though as she has many awesome characteristics for a dog. What is really nice is that she loves sleeping on my feet when I mediate in my room as if she doesn't want to miss anything going on. She is really cute though she is growing tall and lengthy not the solid look I love so much and had hoped she would have, her personality is awesome.

    Have a blessed day bro.
