A Word In Season


A Testimony By: Jada McGoldrick

2019


Picture it: Tulsa, Oklahoma – August 2016. A fresh-out-of-high-school me fiddled around with her suitcases and talked about her big dreams on the way to her new life. I went through several college letdowns before discovering Victory College per my uncle's suggestion. It was modern, God-centered, and twenty-two hours away, and God gave me a whispered "yes." I found myself questioning my shallow faith and the spot I often found my self-esteem rooted in. The unhealthy habits I'd developed throughout my life were brought to the surface, and it was painful. I now call those moments, especially those I experience in my current life, "sandpaper moments" due to the work my soul ended up in almost every moment.

My time there consisted of me either discovering something new that God loved about me or ending up with my head in my lap weeping because of how evident He was. It was so real, it became physical when I was so desperate for someone to come out and reach me in my isolation. In the moments no one else was around, I felt myself crumbling into anxiety, but I knew I wasn't alone in this anymore regardless of how much The Enemy tried to convince me otherwise. Anxiety became less and less, and I was starting to see that being comfortable in my own skin was actually possible. The transition wasn't smooth, let me just say that plainly. I still was tremendously homesick in most moments, and God was healing a wound I hoped a guy and finding "love" would fix.

My stepping out of comfort zone in every possible way was what led me to restoration I didn't know I needed, most of which came in extraordinarily simple ways. If I could go back to that fearful high school senior and say anything, I'd say, "it's gonna suck, but trust me, it'll all be worth it to see what God'll do."   

Obedience is what brings healing to the heart. 

June  2019

22 Since by your obedience to the Truth through the [Holy ] Spirit you have purified your hearts for the sincere affection of the brethren, [see that you] love one another fervently from a pure heart.

1 Peter 1:22 | AMP

Many people camp around their personal hurts and past struggles. They stand still when it comes to the things of God, waiting for a heart transformation before they obey. But Peter said that our hearts are purified when we obey - not before we obey. Your daddy issues, mental hang-ups or any other psychological factor does not excuse your disobedience. Jesus is coming to judge YOUR WORKS Revelation 22:12. Remember obedience is what brings healing to the heart. So whatever he says do DO IT. Whatever he says don’t do. DON’T DO IT. - Terrance Shivers
