i wanted to fight the evils that had destroyed my marriage.....it seemed like a hopeless battle, too much evil...too much pain.....and i still couldnt fully let jesus in....too blocked by pain and pride and anger and hurt. One day i told my husband i forgive him and that is when i realised I'd changed........i'd got god's spirit too!

since then God's sent me the opportunity to work in a charity that promotes christian values in marriage.....i feel like thats part of my mission....this trauma in my life was sent to bring us both to Christ, and to send us our missions in life. My husbands- to be the spiritual leader of the home. He has stepped up and I'm in awe. I wonder what my life would have been like if i'd had an earthly father......i mean, i had one, but he wasnt there, emotionally, physically, or spiritually.......same for my husband. The opportunity, to break the patterns of our fathers, and raise a child with Gods love and gods laws- united- is overwhelming........she is 4 years old.

Sounds like you went through many trials and tribulations, with God all things are possible. He takes away and He makes new. But happy you were able to work things out, with Gods direction of course. And Glad your putting up with your slow computer to be here lol.

the trauma was also to show me what i had done wrong. so much sexual sin in my past, seeking recognition from wordly sources...much more, vanity, pride, abusing my body with self harm, drugs, eating disorders...... and finally idolatry of my husband....believing that HE was the answer.....God must have sighed and shook his head in sorrow, knowing what he had to finally do , to bring us to him. .....the worst days of my life.......finding out what i found out. Ive seen hell and i do not like it one little bit. Suddenly the earth was not a place i wanted to live in. Suddenly, the prayer for 'on earth as it is in heaven' made sense. I always thought heaven would be boring. Now i cant wait to see it one day!!!! Our new life, is so exciting......but metamorphisis is painful at times.........i have spiritual warfare going on , trying to hold me back, flashbacks of what he did, clinging to my fears, doubt, anxiety..........sometimes it gives me such a headache. some days i can leave the past in the past and im so uplifted !!!!! Other days i feel i can never feel safe, never wash the stain out of our marriage, hopeless....i feel sick with panic and shake. That's my battle with the devil who even now tries to ruin our new life as a family with Christ. Three of us are powerful in God - the devil knows it. I have to keep on and keep on handing my hurt to God......

so this is the question i have
when i am in church, often as the sermon goes on i get a build up of head ache .....
when i pray in a group....my body feels like it will explode and i get a headache holding it in......sometimes it makes me cry....
when i make tea, for others in the christian organisation, my hands shake so much i spill sugar everywhere....i dont know where this shaking comes from
when i look at all my self destructive behaviours, it could be put down to demonic influence?
i could never get the name Jesus out in songs..could not say it..when i first started communion the bread would stick in my throat...

i'm scared that i had something dark in me and im scared its not gone.

i dont know if the overwhelming feelings and shaking and headaches are a good thing, a knowledge of the power at work, a symptom of barriers being broken down......or are they a sign that i have resistance inside? I dont want to have anything blocking me from letting God in fully, 100% ........

i know it sounds a bit out-there...but i dont know how else to ask advice

Welcome to Worthy.. ! glad that you are here with us.

I went through what you are discribing. I had went to a pastor and he prayed over me.
Sometimes I woud have that headache and it was like a band thightened around my head.
I found out it was a stronghold. Many Christians go through that.

Plus I found this scripture ...this is for strongholds of any kind ... I would pray this daily over my life.... plus doing a fast helps.

2 corinthians 10: 4-5

4-For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but
mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
5- casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself
against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity
to the obedience of Christ.

thank you for understanding! What exactly is a stronghold? i dont know if its my own internal resistance or something worse. ..i know how much i have done wrong and how empty i have been and all the ways i destroyed myself and i do not want any part of that now, i want to be fully open, fully absorb, and BE absorbed! !! But there is still that little voice that sometimes tells me im just acting.....its not me....this[true feeling] is for other people..people with more depth than me....Get away!!! it IS me!!!! God has been waiting for ME patiently all this time!!!

Strongholds are something like a habits that we get into that are not good for us. It builds in us a stronghold in us ,that it becomes an
addicting thing.

some examples are :

Cigarette smoking
Alcohol
Drugs
Gambling
Over-eating

Anything lust or sexual - porn, magazines, videos, etc.

Lying
Cheating
Stealing
Gossiping
Rage or outburst of anger
Temper
Judging others
Cussing

These are some ...depending on what beomes habit forming in our lives.
Some people don't reconize their habits. It become a stronghold and hard to break.

God can break any stronghold in an instant or God may break down the brickwall of that stronghold little by little ,
until that stronghold is broken down.
For instance...
Some people say they were on drug ally ...they say God delivered them from drugs, in an instant...they are now serving the Lord.
Some were dilivered from alcohol.
Some delivered from cigarette smoking ..( God delivered me from that , with no withdrawl symptoms.)

If the stronghold that is being broken down of the habit, little by little, we may expierence a headache, I did
and it felt like a thight band around my forehead.... Prayer and Gods' word or fasting will help.

A stronghold means we are in bondage to something that we need to be delivered from.
God wants us free from that bondage.

God is our source of deliverance if we cannot help ourselves , to be free of that bondage.

My own opinion through experience and deliverance.. I explained the best of my knowledge . Others may give a different opinion.

God Bless

Welcome elizabethk :)

Praying for you and your husband today.

As a couple, and as individuals, look to always keep God first place in your lives.

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Mark 12:30-31

Prayerfully as a couple and individuals read God's Word asking Him to help you and your husband grow.
Renewal comes as we submit ourselves to God, replace our "old thoughts" with His thoughts, and in God's strength look to act upon them.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

As Christians we can pray for Scripture to be fullfilled in our lives. For an example:

Psa 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Welcom Elizabethk. Just keep giving these things to God. Prayer is simply talking to God. Just tell God when these things come up how you feel and what they are. God hears us and little by little you will begin to see these things just fall away. Spend time worshiping God for who He is. There is anointing in worship.
