When my wife Linda was diagnosed with severely degenerating disc disease in her neck and spine life changed for us overnight. If you had the same thing happen with the onset of chronic illness you will know what I mean. The natural mind thought, Father, We have been pastoring churches for over 40 years, sought to be obedient to your Word so we don’t understand why this happened. Have we sinned against you? In searching our minds and hearts it became clear we could become angry at the Lord for bringing this illness upon us, or press into the Lord, “Come near to the Lord, and He will come near to you(James 4:8) Now life is daily transformed by His Presence.

Free as a bird ! Retired Pastor of 4 years. Follower and servant of Jesus. Not interested In sit coms or wasting away on a rocking chair- now snatched up by Jesus in a call to the broken, chronically ill, hospitalized, shut-ins and dying. I believe in Divine healing in Jesus Christ through prayer. Providing pastoral care in the hospitals,nursing homes, and the house-bound. The average Christian without the fullness of the Holy Spirit often is held in like a bondage of chains because of ignorance regarding the Lord’s power over all things and His willingness to release us and bring freedom. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith”. (1 Jn.5:4) View all posts by breakingfreebyjesus
