Delivered from a Pharmaceutical Drug by Linda Lange

This segment is a testimony from a friend of mine who was addicted to a pharmaceutical drug and how she got set free. So without further adoo... here is her story in her own words:

After a 20 year addiction to a precription anti-anxiety drug (klonopin) I'am free! I am 3 weeks off!!! I now know what is is like to be under Satan's control, those drugs were his tool to kill me, as I ended up in 4 pshyc wards and 3 re-hab facilities, not to mention my daughters fear of finding me dead in my room. Well, it took me awhile to get here, I had to learn Gods way of coping, NOT MINE! I also finally realized that He really does love me, and that there is nothing to fear, fear was my constant companion. I am thankful for this experience, I now know, really know the battle we face between good and evil.

From this, I am able to help others now, I have an online support group for Benzo withdrawl. I have recieved 2 messages recently from people wanting to know how I did it. They wanted to know how I was able to... #1 get off of the poison, meet my future husband and have a wedding, all while I was in withdrawl! You see, so many are suffering and sick,while trying to be free of these evil drugs. I can proudly say it was and is the Lord, He is my strength! When I was weak, He made me strong, I give Him all the glory and honor He deserves.

Christmas Glory

Why is there so much controversy around celebrating Christmas? I've been a part of that too where Christmas is not to be celebrated... where is it in the Bible? people would ask. Then others who Celebrate it find themselves getting deeper in debt, stress and anxiety seem to be their closest friends, and old painful memories creep in. Lots to deal with this time of year.. .and oh.. not to mention colds and flu... yikes!

But in all these things there is a way to complete santity, peace, joy, and health. So lets start with first things first.

The reason for Christmas is the purpose we live and breathe on this planet... to love an serve God with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength.. and if it includes picking a day out of the year to go full-force... then whose to discount that? The Bible even says not to judge others who celebrate "holy" days (Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:). I think I'll let that scripture talk for itself.

So let me add my thoughts as well. When Jesus was born, gifts were brought to Him. That is why we now celebrate our own birthdays... with gifts. So if we continue celebrating our birthday, why can't we celebrate His? There are also other scriptures that "allude" to this... like... whatever you do, do it in faith otherwise it is sin. So if you think that christmas is a sin, then don't do it! That's between you and God, but don't judge others for doing it... Then you are in sin again... whew!

Other scriptures say, Whatever you do, do as unto the Lord. Now I like that because this way I can't get hurt if I don't "receive" something from those I give to. If I give as unto the Lord, I can't get hurt or rejected.

Then there's the old hurts that could come up. What do we do with those? Well, first, if they keep coming up there is unforgiveness in there somewhere, which has resulted in a broken heart. And a broken heart opens us up to all kinds of things, like colds and flu. So, simply forgive them once and for all, and ask God to heal and mend and restore your heart. We have not because we ask not, or we aren't asking accordingly...

I think that about covers things for this year. The Bible is very clear on keeping things simple... so lets enter December with honesty and simplicity.. which is also the description of being "generous."
