By Martha Bush In my last post, The Wilderness Years, I outlined what the wilderness is and what the wilderness is not. Remember: the wilderness is not a place where land is possessed. The wilderness is: a place of transition from our old thoughts and patterns of responding a place... Continue reading

Cindy, all is not lost in The Wilderness experience. Just as you said, its been a struggle, but you have been growing in your faith and dependence on Him. It is a strange this, isnt? Hard, yet that is where we learn. So excited to take this journey with you. And yes, the SUMite Community is a Godsend for me, too.

How interesting, Ian, that you have started to read Joshua again---that is where I am going for awhile in the next few posts. I think we are on a journey that has taken us into the land---our season for the promise land to manifest. I am so excited to be taking this journey with you.

Lynn, funny thing. I wrote this in my journal before I met you in 2011. And I wrote it as telling my story, but writing it in good form, as if someone else would read it. And lo and behold!! I had not planned to go this direction until last week---as a matter of fact, I didn't know where I was going with the next blog post, and then it happened. Got a few more posts around this time period to share. Yes, when I started reading MAJ and saw you talk about possessing the land and around your Jericho, I knew I was with you. Oh yes! Let's help others. Love yu.

I am so happy for you, Bonnie, that your next season is in The Promised Land. Let's journey together---it is an exciting place where you will begin to see things happening--just like you dreamed of---rivers of life and joy and peace. But, most of all things new. Stay with me, and let's make this journey together. Thank you so much for telling me this.

I have kept journals for years that are very detailed. I have been reading through some of them recently, and I feel a nudge from the Holy Spirit to do certain things to some of the things I read. Some things I have burned in my fire pit outside, somethings I have held up before the Lord and ask forgiveness for my part in it, some things I have broken generational behaviors, attitudes, physical problems from passing down; some things I have asked the Lord to show me if there is a soul wound that is affecting me, as you wrote about, Lynn. I know that I learned from those years, and taught a lot of the teachings that I learned, but, it was like the Lord was showing me "it is time to move on to a new a new encounter, a new anointing for this hour. Because of that, I am excited about what I believe is to come from all of this. I look forward to October, and anticipate great things.

This list is a good one to print out and take into our prayer closets, wherever that closet may be, and come into agreement with. Thanks.

I well remember the first time years ago that I came across that scripture in Matt. and did not have a clue what it meant. After much study, I soon found out, and that time period became, shall I say, a "Kingdom Ruled Event. I just love this: These are crazy people who will not stop until they fully experience the Kingdom of God and the Words that Jesus spoke. I join with you and a community of doing it again - this time for nation. We shall take it!! Amen.

You are so right about how deep shame can go. We saw this play out among women in the jail ministry we were a part of. It was so hard to get across to them that their past was in the past once they accepted Jesus. On the other hand, in the men's prison, it did not seem as prevalent. What are your thoughts with people you pray with? Are women more sensitive to shame than men? (just wondering - wait until you get off your trip to answer)

Oh, I hear you on that one. I think I write more to myself than anyone else. I thought I was past this one, but I found I had to do a little touch up. Thank God for His Grace.

By Martha Bush This past month, my posts have centered around Lynn’s quote in Marching Around Jericho, in which she noted that there are several key components to solidifying our identity in Christ. One of those key components was to reject lies regarding our identity and embracing Sonship. (pg. 71-72)... Continue reading

Gill, I just have to tell you what the next line in my journal said that I didn't write in my above comment. "This is quite interesting that I would call it the last trimester. In pregnancy, the last is the hardest, hearing the approaching birth. If this is any indication, I started off with a bang yesterday." I think we are all on to something, don't you?

At last with internet restored, I can comment again. I find it so interesting about the month of September, particularly as you related it to your life. On September, 1st, I wrote in my journal: To9day begins the last trimester of 2020. What a year this has been: Pandemic and storms. Praise God for keeping my family safe. Where do I go from here? On September 3rd, I was reminded of this, and wrote: I believe it is also the last trimester as in pregnancy, but this is a spiritual pregnancy, that is on the horizon. I have no idea what all that means, but it is the words I wrote, and your words bring confirmation to me of something, I am not sure what. Very interesting.

This woman has always intrigued me for years in different ways. My first belief in physical healing came from her when I was a child. It stuck in my little child like mind that nothing was impossible with Jesus, when the Dr., had done all they could do. It went from there to Jesus knew who believed and touched Him. I am beginning to see that as you are saying, that some physical healings are indeed soul wounds that affect the body. I think they are so deep sometimes that it is very difficult to go in and open up that wound. But----Jesus and a deliverance ministry. Thank God for yours. I love stories on healing.

Me, too. We will gain more. I have picked up a couple of my old friends of long ago on facebook, commenting and asking questions. Thankful for that.

I personally can vouch for your statement: A child often doesn’t know how to process trauma and without the guidance from a wise believer and the healing love and the blood of Jesus, they will carry these soul wounds around throughout their lives. Thank God for healing me of childhood wounds. I confess there is still one area that He is wanting me to go deeper into. Lynn, you have a ministry that God has given you that understands and has so much knowledge of the inward being and hurts of an individual. Plus, He has given you the gifts to partner with the Holy Spirit in deliverance of those soul wounds. You just don't get stuff like this on Sunday morning. It is truly a treasure the way God is using you in this realm. Many thanks to you. Love you.

So glad to be on this journey with you. I have a check list going of things I want to do to be "just like Lynn." I am doing like you told me, pray and ask the Lord for a real personal encounter with Him. I don't necessarily have to go to Bethel, do I? lol Bring it on, bring it on.

While I do not have a testimony of a physical healing that has manifested, I have the promises, have claimed it, and have believed for it for years. I keep thinking "at the appointed time." Anxious to study healing with you, and what you have learned.

Wow, Lisa, what a great description of, not only your awareness of the lies you were believing, but also how God lead you out of them. Awareness, for sure, is a big eye opener for all of us who begin to recognize what those lies satan has been feeding us are. As we go deeper into some of these lies, I will be sharing more scriptures of truth. I pray you stay with me, so you can share the scriptures that have had so much meaning to you as you walked out of these lies. I always enjoy and learn from your comments. Blessings to you.

Virginia, God just used you to speak into my wound from that fourteen year old kid. I am so glad you like me, and believe me, I return the love. You know, I have often prayed for that young lady, who I had heard was a troubled child, grew up to be the woman God called her to be. Thanks for your support as I endeavor to write.

Nancy, I understand where you are coming from about self-worth, and lack of confidence to do what God has called you to do. I think I finally figured it out that I had been allowing others to tell me what to do, according to what they thought was right. It literally almost destroys your own decision process. Remember: God doesn't make junk!! He has a plan for each person He creates, and equips us to do what He calls us to do. Hang with me, and I pray we can both come up a little higher into God's plans for us---He ain't finished with us yet!! Thanks for your honesty and committing.

By Martha Bush Picture this scene: While walking down the hall at the school where I was teaching years ago, I came face-to-face with an eighth grade student who had transferred out of my class the previous quarter. Curious about the transfer, I stopped her and the conversation went like... Continue reading
