Spiritually Minded

What do I mean when I say spiritually minded?

Jesus said in John 6:63 The flesh profits nothing. My Words are spirit and they are life. I want what He said.I want spirit and life. I want what He died to give me and the way to get it is through His Word. Reading it out loud, quietly meditating on it and speaking it through prayer.

I’m getting right to the point today. No beating around the bush. No rabbit trails, I’m just saying it.

I mentioned that I was in the hospital. I needed a break.These last 21 months, two weeks and 3 days Since Billy’s senseless murder has wreaked havoc on our family. I have remained strong, as strong as I possibly could.

Even though I’m naturally a strong woman, I had done and dealt with so much because I had to, not because I wanted too.

I work on being strong from the inside out.

I try to do the right thing and teach my children to do the right thing. Sometimes when you do what you have to do over and over with out a sufficient break, you break and that’s exactly what happened to me.

There is NO stigma, health is health. Heart health, brain health, liver health ,pancreas health,skin health are all part of the human body.

We are so connected, body and mind and yet we seem to be focused on just the body and the 5 senses which is carnal.

Being Carnal means of the 5 senses.What we can see taste hear, smell and feel.

All sin is carnal, but not all carnality is sin. (That’s for another post!)

Anyway, what about mental health? Isn’t that important?

I would have to say yes. It tends to get a bad rap but is it really that surprising that we sometimes, okay, a lot of times we have anxiety or panic attacks or *GASP a mental breakdown or what my Pastor helped me see was actually a breakthrough?

You would find it hard to believe that I have been praying for breakthroughs for several years. DECADES if I’m honest. Was this experience God answering my prayers??? My answer, a resounding YES!!!

You can’t have a breakthrough without some things getting broken. Paul Gilmore

I could physically see my prayers from years gone by being answered with the rapid fire similar to a machine gun. Boom boomboomboomboomboom boomboomboom…….

Did I end up in a hospital to help me get through a” tough minute’ as my husband Matthew calls it. Yes, yes I did. Was it 100% negative? NO, no it wasn’t.

I learned A LOT, in a short time and the revelation keeps coming.

Sometimes so quickly that I have to pray for it to slow down.

Well that’s all for now. I’ll try to talk about all my suppressed memories that praise God I’m remembering in my next blog.

Until next time…

May the Lord bless you and keep you;the LORD make His face shine upon you,…The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26

  1. Corinne,
    I’ve only met you a few times. I won’t admit to know how you feel….I can’t. I have not personally experienced the pain you have. As an ER nurse I hugged strangers and watched others experience it, then they leave and I continued on. I wish I could reach out and hug you. Ease your pain. But hugs won’t do that. They won’t bring Billy back. What I can do is pray…pray for you and your family. I will ask my woman’s group tonight to pray for you. There is power in prayer. Please Lord, comfort my sister in Christ.🙏♥️

    There is no one holy like the Lord;
    There is no one besides you;
    There is no Rock like our God.
    1 Samuel 2:2
