Counselor's note: The above photo is of
the Garden Of The Gods Park in Colorado Springs, Colorado. These
rocks which protrude upward are gigantic in size and are somewhat overwhelming
as you stand at the base of them, but from a higher view they make a beautiful
photo. Many people have many large looming obstacles in their lives
like these gigantic rocks, but as they gain a higher view from God's Word,
their lives begins to form a beautiful picture. This is a picture of Matthew's
Matthew contacted me initially about four years ago,
but the timing was not right. Amazingly, God also opened my daily calendar
this time though the cancellation of other appointments that I might spend
more time with Matthew. He had become a Believer, but was still bound
up with the old grave clothes. See:
The Grave Clothes. Matthew made marked progress over the two
weeks of intensive Leave-counseling. His mother, who came with him
also noted the daily progress. Matthew worked diligently at getting a clear
conscience, tearing down the strongholds of the enemy, freeing himself
from bondage, breaking generational curses, and seeking God for mental
and emotional healing. Matthew may write more details of his background
and experiences later, but the following is his current brief testimony.
"God has shown me
that His mercies are renewed daily. His grace is always there to
believe in, in the the midst of disbelief and despair. I am declared to
be forever abiding in His right hand. My problems seem small for I can
do anything with Christ who strengthens me to be whatever He has declared
for. My sins from beginning to the end are forgiven. He loves
me and cares about my well being and has show me that life is fair and
He has justified me. He has turned me from bitter to sweet.
He has shown me that I am righteous because Christ already defeated the
devil and chose me to join in his family."
