The Dark Road to Recovery

IMG_7702 (1)

I have been praying for a young lady very dear to my heart.  I have tried so hard to figure out just where things keep going wrong.  She seems to be headed in the right direction and the next thing I know, she’s veered off again.  She never quite finishes what she needs to get her on the right path, and it is so crucial that she does because this is not just about her.  She has precious children that need her. My heart aches for them, and for her.

On December 17, 2019, I believe the Lord showed me in a dream what is happening with her and so many others.  In the dream, she was being driven in a car at night.  She was in the front passenger seat and it was her side of the car that I was seeing.  I knew that everything was going well.

Suddenly, she stopped the car.  It was like she couldn’t stand it; she just had to do it.  She got out of the car and began walking toward the direction she had come.  As she walked in the darkness, a person came up to her, then another, then another.  I watched as she had a small group there with her now, but she was in danger.  None of them had her best interest in mind.  They were out for self no matter what it caused or cost her.

As soon as my eyes opened, I knew she had allowed the Holy Spirit to guide her.  That was the driver and the safety of the car.  She only lets that go so far and she has to take control and do it her way.  The Holy Spirit won’t interfere with free will.   So she goes back and thinks things will be different now.  Her old acquaintances she calls friends come around and she’s so happy to see them.  It gives her a sense of home and comfort, but she doesn’t see it’s not a home and the comfort is short lived.  Then she finds herself back where she was and an outcast to family and true friends and without her children.  Now she has used all the excuses she had to use others to help her.  Everyone is wise now and no one will listen.

When we lose everything, we have no way to look but up.  I continue to pray now with more hope than ever, but that’s all the help I give.  I will be there for the children, but the end of her has to come so she will say ‘Jesus take the wheel’.  She will be grateful for the safety of that car – and for the driver.

If this is you out there, I pray for you too.  And I especially pray for the people that care so much for you.  I pray they can let go of the situation and hold on to the prayers until you lose yourself.  There is a driver and a car waiting for you, but He’s a gentleman.  He won’t take away your free will.  Don’t ask God or family ‘why won’t you help me’, but ask yourself ‘why won’t you help me’.  He will lead you where you dare to go alone and He will always be with you.  The word REPENT means to turn away from, so repent and turn away from what is hurting you and ask for help from the One that can.

More than once in my life, I have opened the bible to these words: (I usually use KJV but felt I should use NIV on these.)

Isaiah 43:2 NIV – When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Haggai 1:13 NIV – Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, gave this message of the Lord to the people:  “I am with you,” declares the Lord.

And never forget to pray for strength.  I’m an old lady raising grandchildren so I have done it many times and I have never been disappointed.  The One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)  It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)  When you resist the devil he will flee (James 4:7)  He will protect you like in the car I saw and it will be your hiding place from those wanting to harm you.  (Psalm 32:7)

So cry out to Him today; He hears you and will deliver you from all your troubles. (Psalm 34:17)  Forget the former things and don’t dwell on the past.  He will make a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19)

1 John 5:4-5 – For everyone born of God overcomes the world.  This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.  Who is it that overcomes the world?  Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
