Two weeks into my new school! I am finding it different (but not in a bad way!) to be a student again. This week we had awesome speakers from Freedom River Outreach in Tacoma, WA. They were teaching us about their prayer ministry that they do in the streets of Tacoma amoung homeless, drug addicts and others who wander through their doors.
Their ministry is to pray for people’s “original design” aka their identity and the way God created them. They pray to break off lies people believe about themselves from circumstances they have been in, or things people have said about them, or their own sin. They have seen a lot of people experience God through this prayer ministry and receive salvation and healing from drug addictions or various sickness. It was great to learn from them! They taught us how to do this ministry for others, but they also prayed for us.
It was awesome, because I realized from my time with them how God has broken so much h insecurity and self-hatred off my life in the last eight years. I used to torture myself for every mistake I made, feeling that it proved my theory that I was not good at anything. This exactly where the enemy wanted me. But through growing in my relationship with God and seeing myself as His child, I no longer feel that way. That was such a cool revelation for me and I am so grateful to God for all the work He has done in my life! I am trusting Him to do the same in the other areas of my life where I want to be free! This week He was showing me how I need to be free from fear and I am so ready to be rid of that in my life. I am excited!
This weekend we also took a road trip to Los Angeles to participate in Azusanow! It was almost 100,000 people packed into a stadium praising God, repenting of sin, and praying for revival in America! It was amazing to be a part of that event and I am expectant for what is going to happen in our country now!
