Overcoming your own addictions

GoodnewsEverybody.com Daily Social Issues & Life Challenges: Addictions, Alcohol, Depression, Drugs, Pornography, Racism, Temptations, etc…

You can’t do it by yourself!

A friend was telling me he was struggling with his diabetes as he just keeping eating foods that he knows he shouldn’t be eating. I told him, do you want to see your grand kids grow-up? For me, if I was him, I would love to grow old as I can to see them until God takes me to Heaven with Him. I have had this conversation with many others who tell me that they don’t care if they die early because of current circumstances. I share that I would love to live as long as I can because life is worth living for. Thus, this is just an extra motivation to taking care of my health. How about you?

This friend kept on repeating that he can’t do it on his own. I then (light bulb pop out as I was reminded that I was asking God earlier to show me how I can be used by Him today-was helping this friend with an outdoor painting project) shared, I know you can’t do it on your own because you need God’s help! I told him everybody has an addicion or some addictions. I then shared (e-mailed this to him this morning to make sure he remembers!) my own story of how I’ve been able to overcome (just one of my addictions) my “border-line” diabetes (see story) diagnosed 2-3 years ago.

I shared this “open door” (sharing my life) story at my local church this morning, which I wasn’t able to share that we can’t let these family health (e.g. sin) history repeat itself. Yes, diabetes has been in my family for generations, but I’m not going to let that happen to me-no matter what statistics are out there. I’m a “new creation” in Christ and everything started new when I came to Christ in 1996 (see personal testimony). What has helped me to overcome diabetes and other addictions in life is using the “tools” (Bible verses-see down below) through prayer (e.g. fasting regularly-sometimes once a week from certain foods) that God has equipped me over the years growing in my personal relationship. For example, one of my favorite quoted verses is Galatians 5

“…But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit…

Earlier this weekend (Sunday, September 20th of 2009), I heard this short message from my local Christian radio on “Using the tools (e.g. what’s mentioned in the Bible) God has given us”..One can be the most physical strongest person as a construction worker, but if he/she doesn’t have the tools (e.g. hammer) -that own strength is worthless in constructing a house, building, or any construction project. This analogy shows our true self that we can’t do things in life on our own, we need to use the “tools” the God has given us to handle our daily life’s “projects” or “challenges”. Next time you come up with a “project” that seem impossible, just remember to ask God for the “tools” to use to overcome them.

Signs and Symptoms of Fentanyl Abuse narconon.org
“..In most cases, addiction is accompanied by a deterioration in personal integrity. It takes many unethical or criminal acts to maintain an addiction over time—either expenditure of large amounts of personal money or thefts, prescription fraud, doctor-shopping or other crimes, to get the drugs that are needed. A fentanyl addict normally has secrets from most or all of the people they encounter regularly. If the thefts are from a workplace, as often happens, they will be living a secret life while at work. Hospitals, pharmacies and nursing homes are often the sites of fentanyl theft by desperate employees…”

Stories of healing?

GoodnewsEverybody.com Ministry: Healing

After coming to a growing personal relationship with Jesus, I learned more of his love and healing. The words in the Bible came to life on healing more and more.

Personal Testimony

I remembered growing-up, I would always stare at this “mark” whenever I take my clothes off. It kind of bothered me. I didn’t like taking my shirt off in public (e.g.swimming) because I got tired of people asking me “what is that or what happened?”. I began to joke with a response as I got older by saying, “I got stabbed during a gang find growing-up in the cities”. They would respond with their eyes wide and mouth open with shock. I then would start laughing telling them the real truth after-he he! I began to accept this “mark” this as I got older and thank God for the success of this “Appendicities” surgery at age 3. God had a plan, which my mom repeatedly that I survived w/my name “Salvador” or “Savior” (in Spanish).

Growing-up as a little kid (still today), I would get cuts and bruises-calling it an owe! I got a band aid or some rubbing alcohol to help heal the wound. Well, those “owes” become more serious when you get older and it takes more than those overthecountertop medicines.

It was my freshmen year at UMM when I went skiing with some international students at Andes Tower Hills. I got injured from making a “stupid” mistake…more

I remembered watching all those movies of Jesus and admired when he healed all types of people. Well, I believe God could heal me and my faith grew after the doctor told me that I didn’t break anything after an x-ray…Praise God!

I can share countless stories of God’s healing because I called out to Him. I try to first call to Him before I seek actual physical medical help to show my trust in Him. Then I ask for wisdom on what to do, which He tells me at times to seek a physical doctor. Not only physical healing, but emotional healing of all sorts of issues in daily life.

I personally recommend of reading God’s word, which is better then over the counter/prescription drugs (too many side effects). Try it, you never know what may happen, but read it (some verses from Luke is reccomended as the author was a physician/doctor)in faith and expectations!

God healed my back through a dream. It is a complete miracle! I injured myself while strength training in beginning of January. I could barely get up off the floor w/o repositioning myself gingerly, was always flaring and locking my back making it hard to walk, squat, or do my jobs w/o pain, and hardly able to bend down (forget about picking anything up bent over, w/o compensation until a week ago ! I had even resulted to Ibprofen which I NEVER take. Overnight this past Sunday and ever since, I am able get out of bed w/o hesitation, to sit anyway I want w/o problem and do light dead lifts to build my lost strength and flexibility back up.

This journey was a wake up call to certain things in my life. I don’t know if I have the ability to really give the impact of this experience in typed words, but to some it up: do what gives you joy in the Lord. Ask him what that is. He will provide. He loves you beyond anything you can imagine.

If you want to have a dialogue about it PM me or contact me via cell. Thanks”

joshua_24_15So I baked an amazing strawberry🍓 cheese cake🎂😋for my heart, my brother👫😙.On the 12th of Jan, two decades+few years back- God👑 blessed my Mum😙 and Dadda😙 with a beautiful baby boy👶😙.2 bad he didn’t get any of my cake🎂😏,since he was out😒with his mrs😙the whole day.So that took care of all my meals😉😋 He has the most beautifully #testimony .God👑 literally pulled him out of the shadow of
valley of death

When he was 3months old he had a lot of fever and cough.The #baby cried all the time.So Mum and Dadda took him to our family Dr who is my Mum’s brother in law.He asked my parents to a lot of test and they were so confused at why so many tests for fever and cough.The test results came and the pediatrician and other experts straight told them we will try a few things but the baby will not survive more than 15days. He had the worst blood culture,like now the hemoglobin is 14,in the next few mins it would drop down to 3.His lung had patch,his liver was failing, his pancreas weren’t functioning

My parents- their world fell apart. Soon the baby was put on heavy medication.Drs would pierce him tiny legs with syringes 3 times a day.To a point where the legs were swollen so much,that they started piercing his lil hands.After 3 days or so his body was full of knots.The drs said none of the medicines were working & he would die eventually of multiple organ failure+internal bleeding

Now my Mum is a woman of faith & prayer.She prayed let your will be done Father.If my child lives-we all will serve you as long as we live & if he doesn’t we will still serve you.She went to see our #church pastor’s home & on their wall was Isa 53:5,Ps 118:6.She was convinced it was for her baby,the ans to her constant pleading and prayers.She took my bro home, got him off every medicine & put him back on regular feed.Next she called her women’s prayer group(Mum runs a housegroup for the poor & the under privileged-raising money for widows & their kids).The #women in her group were the most simple ladies you’ll know like maids-very poor,uneducated yet very humble & deeply rooted in #God .Cont⤵
#Jesus #Christ #Yeshua #Yahweh #Hebrews #Jews #Relationship #sin #sinner #Bible #mothers
joshua_24_15All of them fasted and prayed and declared God has healed the baby.

15days were up. And the pediatrician and experts who where my uncle’s colleagues came to visit my parents to console them since they thought the baby is dead. But to their surprise the baby was not only alive but looked healthy and was so fair and not purplish blue(His skin was also affected because of the medication). They requested my parents to do the tests again because, him being alive was impossible and unbelievable. All the tests very perfect. Every organ was ok and the patch and knots had disappeared. Nothing was wrong with the baby plus he had gained 3 pounds. The reports looked like nothing was ever wrong.
So this is for all you Mum’s out there. Look to God. He loves you and your children. Do not trust the facts of the world, live by faith in Christ. There are two truths, 1- that the world shows you but there is another truth i.e- what the word of God says. He can change every unfortunate report but no one can his report. You are what the word of God says you are. He has the final say!

Christian Deathcore Testimony-Murder Trial, Suicide, self harm, HEALING in JESUS

“..As a side note, now that the trial is over, Graham Dwyer has been convicted and sentenced for murder, R.I.P. Elaine O’Hara. I am thankful i escaped being a victim as well. LIFE is a gift and we are never promised tomorrow. I am thankful for every day im alive and breathing! For a brief background, i went through a dark period where i felt that no one could ever love me and that i was a burden. I was EXTREMELY suicidal and very deep into self-harm and it was during this time period where I went online in search of someone to end my life. It was on a dark horror based website where i found Graham Dwyer and he offered to end my suffering. Over a period of months we went over all the details and i started preparing my suicide note and trying to make amends with those around me. I finally couldn’t stand the crippling depression any longer and cried out for God to save me, and He made His presence known and His LOVE gave me the strength to carry on. I stopped all communications with Graham and turned my life around. Almost 5 years later, a detective from the major crimes Unit showed up at my door step and over the period of many months, i gathered my information together and testified againts Graham via video link. They found extensive violent content horror movie clips on his laptop, (consensual) videos of him stabbing women and stories he had written that included graphic rape/murder themes (one he had written about me). This whole experience has been powerful and because i am still alive, i know my work is not yet done. And this life is NOT OVER yet for any of you who are struggling today!! I know how crippling depression can be and want you all to know how loved you are. PLEASE, I WANT TO ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU to be the LIGHT this world needs. Please extend a hand to those in need and be there for a friend tonight who is contemplating ending their life. ..”

Kathryn Kuhlman healings and miracles
“..The world called me a fool for having given my entire life to One whom I’ve never seen. I know exactly what I’m going to say when I stand in His presence. When I look upon that wonderful face of Jesus, I’ll have just one thing to say: ‘I tried.’ I gave of myself the best I knew how. My redemption will have been perfected when I stand and see Him who made it all possible.
In a time that was suspicious of both women ministers and Pentecostals, Kathryn Kuhlman shook twentieth-century Christianity back to its roots. Believers of all persuasions—Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopal, or whatever, it didn’t matter—flocked to her meetings to be healed or filled with the Holy Spirit as they had read about in the book of Acts. Though she called herself “an ordinary person,” the effects of her ministry were anything but ordinary. Kathryn was one of a handful of ministers after World War II who prophetically reintroduced the Holy Spirit and His gifts to the body of Christ on the earth in what has proven the greatest revival of all time: the Charismatic Renewal.
Kathryn Kuhlman was born on May 9, 1907, to Joseph and Emma Kuhlman. A childhood friend described Kathryn as having “large features, red hair, and freckles. . . . She wasn’t dainty or appealingly feminine in any sense of the word. She was taller than the rest of ‘our gang,’ gangly and boyish in build, and her long strides kept the rest of us puffing to keep up with her.”
One Sunday when Kathryn was fourteen, she attended church with her mother. As she stood singing, she began to shake all over and sob. A weight of conviction came over her, and she realized that she was a sinner in need of salvation and forgiveness. She slipped out from where she was standing, went to the corner of the front pew and sat weeping. At that moment Jesus lifted the weight from her shoulders and entered her heart.
In 1924 when Kathryn was about seventeen, she and her older sister Myrtle persuaded their parents that it was God’s will for Kathryn to travel with Myrtle and her husband Everett in their evangelistic tent ministry. Then in 1928, after a meeting in Boise, Idaho, Everett decided to go on to South Dakota, while the women stayed behind and continued to minister there. The offerings collected, however, were not enough to support them and Myrtle soon decided to rejoin her husband. After this happened, a local Boise pastor offered Kathryn a chance to preach at an old pool hall that had been converted into a mission and Kathryn’s ministry began…”

Happy Mother’s Day-everyday! What are you appreciative most about your mom?

GoodnewsEverybody.com L.A. Women, Ladies, Mom, Mother,  etc..

This morning (Sunday, May 10th of 2009) at church, I was inspired to add more to this after a great-time of worship. The worship leader (Johanna N.) shared about the “Shepherd” (Jesus) going after that 1 leaving the 99 sheeps.
*see GoodnewsEverybody.com Life: Backslidden-Parable of the Lost Son

I just felt the “nudge” to emphasize this great Biblical story using my own life experience. I shared about a time back in Junior High School when I got in trouble-serious enough to be sent to the Principal’s office and was sent home after being suspended from school for the rest of the day. I actually came home worried about what my parents was going to do. I came home “crying” to my mom and was greeted with an “unexpected” hug. I was actually expecting to get scolded. I look back at this and just thankful to my mom for her grace, which I see “God’s love” through this-similar to the Parable of the Lost Son/Sheep. I was trying to encourage the folks at church present that we all make mistakes and what we do (aftermath) is what really matters. When my Principal suspended me from school, I could’ve went somewhere (e.g. hide in some nearby “hangout” that many of my peers went- to smoke, do drugs, etc…) besides “home”-gotten myself more in trouble! This is what our Heavenly Father wants us to do-come with a repentent heart towards Him or “back in His arms again“! What I didn’t share is that I haven’t done this more than I should. I’ve made many mistakes and didn’t go back to His arms and dug a deeper pit or hole. PLEASE DON’T DO what I did and “run” to GOD! My Heavenly Father loves you more than what you think.

Also during my share, I talked about how we all need to be thankful to our “moms”. During “Sunday School”, I asked the kids what are they most thankful to their mom (a little different from the similar activity 2 years ago-see above). Some shared about their mom’s “great” cooking (I love my Mom’s Filipino food, which I appreciated more when I left home for college). With graduations coming-up, many graduates will be thanking their mom, which we need to do more than just once a year-everyday! I appreciate what my mom has done for me as I get older as I realize more what moms do (e.g. take care of children, house work, etc…) through babysitting or observing other moms. Also, meeting other people and realize how blessed I am. I shared in front of the congregation that I became more grateful after having friends, who would share about their stories of being adopted. I might not have the “perfect” family, but I’m thankful and love them!
