Pastor’s Wife Set Free, Able to Face Rejection
The most noticeable is the fear and the feeling that I have done something wrong is totally gone. Being a pastor’s wife is not an easy thing. Wives tend to carry burdens and take on offenses directed at our spouses. We always hear “don’t take this personally” but how can we not. We take things very personally. This is no longer an issue. May husband no longer has to call home to warn me ahead of time about an email or a situation that would have cut me to the bone before and left me heart broken. It is hard to explain it is just like I am disappointed but not devastated.
The other major issue was doubt. There was always this doubt that I was not hearing from God and doubted many other things. All my life this has been a major stronghold in my life. Even through 95% of my Freedom Encounter session I doubted that this was going to work, because the stronghold of doubt was still there. As soon as the demonic stronghold that played that card in my life was ”toasted” it was like a light switch suddenly turned on. That doubt was gone. It was the most amazing thing.
If I hadn’t gone through this ministry I don’t know how I could have handled the last six months in the ministry. I have felt like David in Psalm 55: “For it is not an enemy who reproaches me; then I could bear it. Nor is it one who hates me who has exalted himself against me; Then I could hide from him. But is was you, a man my equal. My companion and my acquaintance. We took sweet counsel together and walked to the house of God in the throng.” During the last six months ones we have dearly loved and cherished have turned their backs on us and started a smear campaign against us. Before receiving Freedom Encounters I would have been in constant tears and questioning and doubting. There has been this peace and settledness that the Lord has given me. When encountering those who most verbally are speaking out against us – the Lord has given me the ability just to love them and give them a hug when before I would have turned tail and ran.
The ability to love and forgive those who have been persecuting us is amazing.
