What uncommon things do we want to become common?

Things like:
our children having mutual love and respect for each other.
our teenage children having love, honor, respect and obedience for their parents.
us continually becoming better friends and lovers.
our family totally trusting God in all things and putting our faith in Him to fulfill his promises.

Sheer Joy

By: Chelsa
(Ed. Note: This is part 2 of "I've Been Set Free". Read "A Spiritual Look at Looney Tunes" first.)

I was so happy I couldn't contain myself. My mind felt so free!  The demon or spirit or evil force had disappeared completely from my body. I was totally at peace and filled with the Spirit.  It was the most glorious feeling I've ever had. Indescribable really.  I felt like the demon possessed man whom Jesus healed. He was sitting there, dressed, and in his right mind. I feel like I'm finally in my right mind. After my healing I was giddy for days. I couldn't wipe that silly grin off my face. I would spontaneously laugh or let out this satisfied sigh all throughout the day.  I wanted to hug and kiss anyone in my vicinity because God was so good. I felt amazing. I've never been drunk, but someone could have mistaken me for it.

All I wanted to do was to share this good news with everyone I knew. This experience has caused me to ask lots of questions about how we deal with dark spiritual forces. I'm trusting God to lead me down the perfect path in this area.

Now that I have experienced the freedom from demonic forces holding me captive by speaking aloud God's promise over myself in that moment of hopelessness, and then that spirit of fear and despair being cast out, I have to share this with others. I have to help others with their satanic prisons- to help give them the tools they need to allow God to set them free.

This is crazy talk to a lot of people I know. It sounds way too "out there" radical, charismatic. People may think I'm crazy. I may be persecuted for what I believe and how I'm going to live now that I know this truth that people today have demons or evil spirits.

Just the other day as I was sharing with a friend about what had happened to me, another person walked in the room while I was talking about the demons and I felt a little embarrassed. I sounded crazy to myself.

God help me stand strong and remember what happened to me. To remember the feeling of release and freedom I experienced, the sheer joy and happiness and peace that enveloped me for days. The confidence I felt in telling others what just happened to me. I am asking for courage and boldness and passion to speak truth. When I feel timid, remind me of my story. Remind me who I am.
