There’s an event in my past that has haunted me for years. It seems like every few days it would come to mind and I would be flush with guilt and condemnation and sadness. I felt very bound up and helpless to stop the barrage of thoughts and feelings. While at the conference the thoughts came and I realized that God wanted me to confess what has been on my heart for so long. I’ve never told a soul about it. So during the prayer time I went up to two of the ladies near the altar, whom I met at last year’s Women Abide conference, and told them the whole situation. Immediately they rebuked the thoughts I was having and said I did nothing wrong in the situation and that satan is just trying to get at me and taunt me with false accusations. A weight was lifted. God instantly relieve me. The ladies prayed over me. I wept and they cried too. It was such a heavy burden to carry alone — what a relief to get this thing off my chest. I wasn’t planning on bringing it up, in fact I thought I’d take it to the grave, but I’m so thankful for the Holy Spirit’s prompting because I’ve been suffering needlessly for a long time. And I’ve heard that you are only as sick as your secrets and if that’s true I am now well. James 5:16 says, “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
