Can't Keep Me Down!

For years, I was knocked down by the words and actions of others. I learned how to read signs and body language so that I would know how to defend myself. I was broken, battered, and bruised…but God would not let me be kept down!

My defense and shield depend on God, Who saves the upright in heart. ~Psalm 7:10

Jesus was knocked down, too. He was beaten, battered, and bruised. He was ridiculed, spat upon, tested, and people talked behind His back. Then, ultimately, He was killed. But God would not let Him be kept down, either… Because three days later, Jesus rose from the dead proving that you can’t keep a Good Man down!

Because of what Jesus did on the cross, He made a way for me and for you to be able to get back up when the chips are down. We don’t have to be held captive by words, actions, neglect, intimidation, oppression, or any other negative thing that lurks in the shadows, seeking to destroy us.

When God healed me, He gave me a new heart, a new outlook on life, a new purpose, and He pointed me in the direction He wanted me to go. I felt as if I were being told, “They can’t keep a good girl down. Now, go out there and show ‘em what I’ve taught you!”

The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He helped and saved me. ~Psalm 116:6

When someone asks me, “Who is Jesus to you?” I smile and immediately say, “Healer!” Of course, Jesus is SO much more to me than that! But ultimately, He is my Healer! Because, without the healing, this website would not be here. These words of encouragement would not be here. I could not do what I'm doing now if it weren't for Him healing me! He is my EVERYTHING, but He is also my Healer!

I want Him to be your everything and your Healer, too. There isn’t anything you’re going through, or have gone through, that He can’t fix. You aren’t too far away. You haven’t done something so terrible that He won’t accept you. Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy anymore. Instead, prove to him that he can’t keep a good woman, or man, down! Prove it to him! Step out and say, “God, I need to be fixed!” Ask Him to help you, to heal you. Then give it ALL to Him. Turn it loose. Let it fly like a helium balloon!

And now, Lord, what do I wait for and expect? My hope and expectation are in You. ~Psalm 39:7

The next time someone tries to put you down, smile… and remember that God won’t let you be KEPT down!
