Inspired: ShawnsTestimony.com with Duchess Joyce
I remember clearly when I was in a abusive relationship and the slaps would hurt so badly that all I could do was stand and bounce back. It's ironic how the vision of my children and my mission for the orphans kept me standing. I had to escape in my mind each time he would beat the life out of me.
I couldn't give up! I had to stand and eventually I had enough courage to stop trying to save him and safe myself- for myself and the vision of pearls (children). When you feel like giving up remember why you are standing, why you are fighting and why you started the journey to Let Go & Let God.
God allows difficulties in our lives to cause us to turn to Him. He is always there to meet our eeds for healing, deliverance and success. However, He desires beyond these felt needs that our greater need for wholeness be met. This story traces the path from healing to wholeness.
Need for healing brought the lepers to Jesus: Our felt needs bring us to Jesus. They had heard the gospel that Jesus heals. They called out in a loud voice; they were serious about their need.
Jesus saw them: Even though they were far off, Jesus saw them. He sees us even when we are far away from Him.
One showed gratitude: He came back praising God in a loud voice. He was a Samaritan, half-caste and despised by the Jews. Warning to second generation Christians, familiarity breeds contempt. We need to learn to show gratitude.
Your faith has made you well: Well = sozo Greek for saved, more than just cleansed. Faith evidenced in thanking God and falling at Jesus feet. What number are YOU? 10 cured of physical disease, only 1 cured of both physical and spiritual disease; 10 had felt need meant, only 1 had real need met; 10 got what they wanted, only 1 got what God wanted; 10 got healed, only 1 was made whole.
What do you want today? A pill to take away the symptom or the cure to rid you of the disease? Jesus wants you to be whole. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless (1Th 5:23). Will you come and fall at His feet? Your faith will make you whole.
I pray for wholeness for all of us.... we need each other to survive. We are on this journey by grace. Share this message with someone today. DUCHESS JOYCE EL
Thousand of want to change. They just do not know how to change. Every alcoholic hates his bondage. Most smokers long to quit. Drug addicts sit for hours wondering how they can break their chains of bondage. Stop for a moment. What are your own greatest gifts? What is the center of your expertise? Are you a good listener? A good speaker? Whatever your gift is that is what God will use to bless others through you.
Your gift may not be needed by everybody. But it is definitely needed by somebody. You are capable of motivating somebody. Maybe you can provide a climate, an atmosphere that unlocks the creativity of another. People want to succeed. People want to improve, people want to be healed and saved.
Someone has been waiting for you for a lifetime. They are worth pursuing. You are the golden thread missing in their life. People want the change. All our hearts held together like a string of pearls. Take a journey to reach out today to someone in need- of prayer, encouragement, a meal and visit. You may be that pearl that save them on today.

This morning I woke up feeling angry and depressed because something I thought I wanted to happen did not go the way I had intended.
If you think creating A Mind With Heart means you will never experience "negative" feelings, that's not how it works.
We NEED our negative emotions so we can identify fear based beliefs and send them back to Source through our Hearts so they can be corrected.
Here's an analogy that might make this a bit more clear:
If you eat a healthy meal one day, does that mean you will never feel hunger again? Of course not! We need to feel hunger so we know when to feed our bodies.
Negative emotions are like the hunger pangs of our Soul.
Our Hearts are telling us that something we perceive in our physical reality needs correction. We need to access the Love based Truth from our Hearts to correct our perception, and the results feed our Soul.
The quality of what we feed our Soul is just as important as the quality of food we put into our bodies. When we are perceiving physical reality with fear based beliefs, we are feeding the Soul junk food. When we replace fear based belief with Love based Truth, we are feeding the Soul with superior nutrition.
The results are a healthy Heart, Mind, Body and Soul.
Creating A Mind With Heart allows me to identify fear based beliefs before I take actions that might harm myself or others. It's not that I don't feel anger, fear, depression, or even despair at times.
The difference is the ACTION I take. I take action by sending those fear based beliefs back to Source for correction, through the gateway of my Heart.
The result is Love based Truth - like today's Healing Message From A Mind With Heart.
I received this Love based Truth when I realized that I did not know the True Why for the results I had hoped for and intended. I discovered my "Why" is to live a life a value, to myself and others.
Source then sent me this Love based Truth to help me understand and embody what a life of value truly is. It's not about money, things, or approval from others.
"A life of value embodies the qualities of God - Love, Light, Truth and Life.
I'm not saying that money, things, and relationships are not important - they are. But they only have value when they are given substance with Love based Truth - with the qualities of Love, Light, Truth and Life.
With this in Mind, I am now ready to move into my day and experience what I know will be beautiful, joy filled results. In fact, I've already begun to experience those things. Freed from the oppression of fear based beliefs, I can now enjoy this beautiful day, the flowers in my yard, and conversations with friends.
Creating A Mind With Heart for yourself and the World is perhaps the most valuable thing you might ever do for your life." --Ilana Moss, Heartcompass Enterprises
