  1. I have read the forum post and done research and I think I am victim to MKU. Please pray I get the help I need and then also use this help to help other victims.
  2. Works in faith like practical things are good for spiritual health and thus assurance to: Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. 1 John 3:18โ€ญ-โ€ฌ20 ESV So invent something practical e.g. bake a cake for an elderly person or pickup some litter with a litter picker.
  3. I got onto an ecig after giving up smoking and although it was better for me, I was still addicted to the nicotine therefore it was actually me being mastered. I prayed and Jesus stepped in, and by the power of the Holy Spirit got me off my ecig to now having nothing for over a week. Used just two nic patches. Being mastered is rubbish and takes the richness out of life. Ecigs are better than tobaco but are still not good. "All things are lawful for me," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful for me," but I will not be dominated by anything. 1 Corinthians 6:12 ESV Lol, this is funny btw: Kurt Kobain "Just because your paranoid does not mean their not watching you". Imagine the freedom without nicotine and pray to Jesus that you can have it.
  4. You need to remember how good it feels to just be yourself and not try and impress people. Just relax and know that Jesus loves you and that is all that matters. The enemy will try and delude you with lies like making you think you are on TV. This lie and many like it, are to hurt you and others around you as it makes you proud and self conscious. This is the kind of lie that the enemy will give you and you will be more vulnerable to believing it if you have mental health problems. When you come back to the facts that it is only worth living for Jesus and not cheese, it feels amazing and refreshing. Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 ESV You need to know the Word of God and stand on the Word of God. The Word of God is the facts that we need to live by. You need people but the right people around you too. Dont isolate yourself. Chatting and sharing your heart with Christian people you trust will help you. It helps me so much to have company. Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment. Proverbs 18:1 ESV
  5. When you are struggling and feeling down, you can actually force a smile and it will help you. This is because when you smile, it uses lots of little muscles all the way up your body to your head. There is science behind this. It can snap you out of bitterness. Laughter does that well too btw. I was fed up at home about something but then I used my imagination to think of something silly and funny, and it worked. Think that maybe the latest craze will be people eating lots and lots of chocolate and you will see people nibbling everywhere in public. A game changer ๐Ÿ˜‹
  6. Praising Jesus is the best way to get through anything. But what about the times when you cannot praise Jesus e.g. in public or at work. Well, sing the tune in your head and imagine raising your hands in praise. Your will is praising Jesus therefore it is praise and it will help in situations where you cannot sing or lift your hands. You need to remember some songs then. I have a set. Maybe make yours like mine by using an acronym. Happy - Hosanna, praise is rising Hope - How great tho art For - Father God I wonder Great - Great is thy faithfulness Britain - Blessed be thy name Bless you ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  7. Did you realise that when life is tough, the best thing you can do is praise Jesus. Things change for the better almost straight after sometimes. If its really hard then just say "Lord Jesus you are good" and mean it. Its still praise and it works.
  8. Remember the acronym NEIBIT before you get yourself in trouble watching the BBC news or any other news, getting yourself all scared by joining dots in your mind and ending up crying. Not Everything You Believe Is True NEIBIT. Proverbs 14:15 ESV "The simple man believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps" The news programs do more than just slant things whatever country you live in and this is a fallen world we live in. Use discernment to filter in your mind what the news programs tell you. This means being logical, going on the facts of God's word and getting a proper answer from a range of at least 3 reliable sources. NEIBIT has helped me so much. An easy way to remember: Pronounce it "nay" (horse noise) and then "bit" (8 bits in a computer memory byte). Shalom โ˜บ
  9. You should do a DUWD. Dont Understand then Write it Down: Get a blank a4 piece of paper. Write down as a heading "Are these people possessed". Turn it portrait. Draw a line down the middle. Write yes and no at the top of each line. Write reasons for yes and no under the right headings with a score from 1 to unlikely to 10 for sure. Add up the scores for the columns and you should find that if it is done properly you will find if they are possessed or not possessed. Do it thoroughly and pray to Jesus for an honest heart and clarity of thought. Scan it and post it on this thread so that you have a fair chance to be heard. I am saying this as I was abused and know how much it hurts not to be believed.
  10. I dont want you to automatically think you are doing something wrong when you suffer though. Sometimes we get in a muddle like that. Your heavenly Father loves you and wants to protect you e.g. if your Dad gives you a gentle smack on the wrist when you place your hand too near the fire, then you will have hopefully learnt through discipline, not to do it again. You do not get burnt now. It is because He cares for you very much and wants the best for you. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? "My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives." It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live? Hebrews 12:5โ€ญ-โ€ฌ9 ESV Sorry if that is a lot to quote but it is important stuff. Obviously son means daughter also as man means mankind. Bless you ๐Ÿงก
  11. I will not be a yes man or a grumpy old man, but instead seek the actual understanding as understanding is sweet and its what this tangled up world needs. Being impartial is good. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 ESV That is what the Word says. So if you are having troubles then maybe consider WHERE it is coming from and IF it is after you have confessed being naughty. Cancer is a serious thing so I say what I say with respect and the words WHERE and IF. I am NOT saying it was because of sin. I am not saying this of them either but this is an example of what happens to the wicked who hurt us. since indeed God considers it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you, 2 Thessalonians 1:6 ESV Actually feel the warm cosy love of your heavenly Father as He holds you in His arms and smashes the demons that surround you. He is saying, child I love you more than you will ever know.
  12. The problem of pain by C.S. Lewis is a wise book to buy. Its quite hard reading (the English used) but if you get it and manage or instead read something easier then this will help you to realise that as Christians we will suffer and that it is not God who is to blame. Its easier to get through the pain if you accept it. A prudent purchase if life gets hard. Dont forget that God will give you many joyful seasons too.
  13. Basicly. As human beings, we all need to feel loved. If you are struggling then give one of your friends a hug. A mutual hug. Love seems to send the demons packing probably because of 1 John 4:18. Pray to Jesus that you would feel loved. You need it. No direct answer then if you have no one then imagine cuddling a big friendly soft polar bear from another world. I think it is your main need actually and without it you will go loopy.
  14. Its ok too as its in the bible. A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 NIV I am sure that cheerful would be laughter in other translations. Having a laugh can sometimes help you to snap out of feeling bitter, depressed, frustrated etc. Playing with my cat helps me and my cat can be quite funny too. Helps when I am grumpy or fed up. She lays on her belly and raises her paw to give me a high five. Having a laugh with people and not at them, is a good way to break the ice and relax with them. Company helps if your are fed up.
  15. For the original question of this post. If you are having problems with lying then realise that you do not have to lie but that instead you can just not say so much. Be clever by finding a way to not lie when you speak e.g. if a dodgy looking stranger asks you your name then look at your watch and say its already so and so time and I must be going as truly you must be going as they are a dodgy looking stranger. You should always be honest and change your ways if you have eaten a massive bar of chocolate all to yourself though ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿงก
