“Now, from sadness to gladness.”

Recently I heard the Lord say, “FROM SADNESS TO GLADNESS!” and I saw the Lord leading many who have been carrying great sadness in their hearts for many reasons into deeper intimate encounters with Him where His love and comfort was going to heal the sadness that has crippled many.

I saw many in the body of Christ “putting on a brave face”. Many were feeling like they had to just “push down the sadness” and keep decreeing and holding on in faith. I believe we should ALWAYS be in a place of decree and living by faith, but I saw many had been trying to not face the hidden sadness because it may mean “lack of faith”. I saw Jesus come, in His beautiful way, and He was inviting them into a place of rest, laying their heads on His chest and He was inviting them to “let it out”.

The Lord is wanting to heal the sadness that many are carrying. The Lord is wanting to heal the sadness that has been hidden within hearts. Sadness that has been recognized and spoken, and sadness that has been hidden and unspoken.

I saw the Lord speaking such love, such encouragement and such life over His people. Wave after wave of His Spirit and His Word was bringing healing and life.

Over these ones carrying the sadness I heard the Lord make a decree over their hearts and lives, “NOW.. FROM SADNESS TO GLADNESS”.

Psalm 30:11 was the banner and promise:

“Then He broke through and transformed all my wailing into a whirling dance of ecstatic praise! He has torn the veil and lifted from me the sad heaviness of mourning. He wrapped me in the glory garments of gladness.” (Psalm 30:11 – The Passion Translation)

I prophesy over those of you who have been carrying sadness, a deep, beautiful time of healing, refreshing, rejuvenating, comforting season of encounters with God are upon you that is going to TURN the SADNESS to GLADNESS.

There is a new season of GLADNESS upon you, where all your heart has known is SADNESS, now your heart shall know GREAT GLADNESS in His presence.

I prophesy over you that even before the end of 2017, there will be significant breakthrough of the sadness you have carried. There will be GREAT breakthroughs in 2018, but I prophesy significant shift of this sadness before this year is out. I prophesy there will be great healing to the wounding, the trauma, the sadness, the wailing you have been carrying and you will see Him break through and transform the wailing into a WHIRLING DANCE OF ECSTATIC PRAISE!!!

How you see Him, how you see His heart, how you hear His voice, how you experience His love, comfort and healing is going to lead you into a whole new level of joy and great praise that you will not keep silent about. Where the sadness has stolen your song… a new song will burst forth from within you of praise to God.

“How could I be silent when it’s time to praise you? Now my heart sings out loud, bursting with joy, a bliss inside that keeps me singing. I can never thank you enough”. (Psalm 30:12 – The Passion Translation)

I’ve been in a state of sadness and loneliness since the death of my wife, best friend and partner in life. I cry every day and while my children seem to get on I cannot. Part of me has died too and despite other areas of my life being sorted by God, the grief and pain of loss has not…. My lovely wife told me to be strong before she died of a brain tumour in February but I cannot on my own. I’ve given it to the Lord as I have surrendered to him to lead me to my life’s forfillment. Andrew, NZ.

Andrew, when my mother died in October 2015, I witnessed this great sadness take hold of my father for they had been married 64 years. He just died this November and although we grieve his loss, it turns to gladness when I think of their reunion. Todays, let the Lord Jesus rub his healing balm into your broken heart, soul and spirit. God bless you.

Andrew, it is very early days yet for you since your wife, best friend and partner died. It will be a different process for your children than for you.Grieving is normal, but total despair is not, and I pray that you will be kept from the latter in order to work through a more helpful grieving.
I think unhelpful spirits would like to keep you wounded and winded, and you may find it helpful to command them to leave when they attack.eg “Spirits of despair, leave me now in Jesus’ Name.”
Speak Scriptures that will help you stand against temptation, eg “I shall not die, but live , and declare the works of the Lord”, Psalm 118 v 17 or whatever is more suitable for you.
God bless you, strong man of God. You nursed and cared for your wife in a difficult illness.Each day is a day further away from your loss, and a day nearer meeting her again.
You will get through this.

Andrew we will all go through pain . Trials and tribulations. Jesus pronisrf us we would we not except all of us. He promised he would never leave.

I encourage you to read Job.
Job 1: 20
Then Job arose, tore his robe, shaved his head, and fell to the ground and Worshipped.
Job went through alot in a short period of time.

His children all 7 children died. His cattle and animals died. His houses and possessions were consumer by fire.

But Job understood the power of Worship

Worship is a Weapon.

Put on your worship

Lord I thank you all the time and previous moments you gave me with my wife.

To edify himself. To sing praise to the lorD or naked I came fr my mother’s womb
Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Andrew, I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s only ten months since the loss of your beautiful wife & your wound is so raw. I pray that The Lord Jesus wraps His arms around you & fills you with His love & peace. I pray that your pain is eased & The Holy Spirit blesses you with His company to soothe you & support you. With Jesus your heart will begin to heal, the emotions you are feeling & your flowing tears are enabling healing (I say this with love). When my dad lost my mum it was so difficult & it took time but things eventually got a little easier each day, praise Jesus.
You are doing so well Andrew & you have done well reaching out. Bless you Andrew & I pray a hedge of protection around you & I pray the blessing of Abraham over you & your children. I also feel like this verse is for you. Isaiah 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
I hope I’ve not spoken out of line, I just want to bless you & for you to know that Jesus loves you & cares deelpy for you. I’m so sorry that this has happened to you Andrew. God bless you brother & love to you in Jesus Mighty Name, your sister in Christ Jesus, Emma.

Remember we all going to die. It’s part of life. Jesus reminded us you cannot love anyone more than him.
Not your wife. Kids. Job Nothing in this world

Ask him to direct your paths. Strengthen you m Get back in the fields about the fathers business.

Start of your day thinking about the greatest gift Salvation
Put on some worship music.

My go to songs.

Marvin Sapp My Testimony ( His wife died 7 years ago)

He went through pain. Trials and trauma

This song strengthens me.
Todd Delaney Victory belongs to Jesus
Travis Green Where would I be
Marvin Sapp Carried me
The most precious commodity is your salvation

Remember he saved you from wrath
Think about the harvest. Get back to the harvest. Souls are on there way to hell. It will all be worth it. When we come before his throne .

Hi Andrew, Here’s prayer for you:
“Heavenly Father, I know that you have a good plan for my life that is meant to prosper me and not harm me, and to restore hope for my future. Today, I make a choice to rise up in that hope and use the anointed blood of Jesus Christ as my weapon. I release the blood of Jesus Christ over every spirit of darkness associated with the strongman of Heaviness.

I bind the spirit of depression that is harassing me in the name and blood of Jesus Christ. I bring all prayers, thoughts, and words that have been spoken over me, or by me, under the judgment of Christ and declare to every spirit attached to these words that you are subject to the blood covered judgment of Jesus Christ.

I loose love, joy, and the peace of God that defies all understanding over me right now in the name of Jesus. I make a choice today, to meditate on you, your truth and your word. I will no longer listen to the lies of the enemy. I pray all of this in the name of Jesus Christ! Amen.”
The stronghold of grief can be used against you…Please research this.

To say that this article touched my heart would definitely be an understatement! You spoke my heart in verbal words, and all that I could do was weep. The Lord gave me a little chorus awhile back; it is called, The Secret Place”. The second half of the chorus is this:
Pressing my head to His chest I breathe, resting peacefully I’m so secure. Now I belong, His heart speaks to me, “You’re mine and I’m glad you are here.” I don’t think that I have ever had anyone declare something so close to what the Lord has given me in song. Thank you for the encouraging word.

Andrew the Lord help you and speak to you and comfort you through your grief.
I had 2 very close loving relatives pass away,a coworker murdered,and a good friend who was in very good health pass away –all within a few years of each other.
I was so sad,and quite shocked (the murder was so brutal)I wanted to die and go to heaven the grief and despair was so deep.
I did not get over it quickly.
The Lord taught me about the grieving process –and it IS a process.
NOT a quick fix!
Elizabeth Kubler Ross wrote a famous book on the STEPS of grief we go through.So many unbelievers get “stuck” in the steps!
A great book,recommended for those in the caring professions.
The Lord will help you through also.
When we keep on in our faith,and pouring out our pain at the Lord’s feet month after month,year after year, he changes our hearts and brings his healing.
I am a living testament to this.

I now want to live to honor the beautiful memories and honorable qualities these human beings taught me.
He makes all things beautiful in his time!

I have to share this experience I had this morning on a separate template.

I awakened in the early hours of the morning.My first thoughts are always to pray about something,as we all have numerous concerns on our hearts don’t we. 🙂
I was praying about the guidance I need,providence, and gave the stress of the intricacies of moving to the Lord.
I felt a powerful peace inward and outward,and a deep deep sense of GLADNESS and JOY and acknowledgement that God’s provision is ALWAYS on time. I also felt as though something lifted from me (the disappointment and uncertainty I was experiencing).

Reading this word from Lana validated afresh my experience with the Lord this morning.
He is restoring his people from SADNESS to GLADNESS,and for me it is happening now,right before the end of 2017.
Glory to God! Jehovah Rophe God our healer.
Thank you Lord for Lana, thank you Lord for James and Z3.

Make This Appalling Idol Fall

What a sad day for mankind, it has been tricked again today
Like lost sheep to a talking statue they’re so eager to pray
He’s performed miracles, sent fire from heaven they do acclaim
No one can match the great god of ours they happily proclaim.

His friend the emperor has gained popularity, all must have his mark
For even though wounded by sword he still lives they remark
And to all of them the Great I AM He has no authority
They are in such a frenzy and so lost to debauchery.

You promised for a while Father that you’d let them have their way
They’re so blasphemous, now hunting us as if we are some prey
We that are not branded, we cannot buy or sell at all
Yahuah, you only need to whisper to make this appalling idol fall.

Taking the chip on forehead or right hand, they don’t know what they do
And thus no longer truly human, that we see is true
It’s to their demise, now, O Almighty One, make your anger roar
Bring down your justice and their statue will be no more.

You promised for a while Father that you’d let them have their way
They’re so blasphemous, now hunting us as if we are some prey
We that are not branded, we cannot buy or sell at all
Yahuah, you only need to whisper to make this appalling idol fall.

Yahuah, you only need to whisper to make this appalling idol fall!

It’s hard to put into words what God told me, but I was told I would start experiencing a taste of His glory and the work He has done starting in early 2018. I got a small dose in October and it was quite interesting. I’m still suffering in many ways but I notice so many differences. I wanted to paste this If it’s ok as I feel it will speak to some. Be at peace
