Having a healed heart is crucial for walking in God’s kingdom, and to be His ambassador of spreading His light, love and salvation!
If you say you love Jesus but your heart is not healed, you will not reflect Him. Instead, you will reflect yourself and your circumstances.
Here are some helpful keys for you and me:
1. Be a part of a healthy community that wants to build you up and not tear you down. Healthy family and friends help in the road to recovery. They will give you the honest feedback you need to hear. (This is one reason for the FCC community!)
2. Inner healing – having someone guide you into an encounter with the Lord to help you stomp out a lie for the truth, heal heart wounds, etc.
3. Take note of when you feel offended. Offense allows you to identify where you are. Ask Jesus: “What’s coming up in me?”: insecurity, pride, etc.? If so, then turn from it and turn to Jesus for what it is your heart is missing. A lifestyle of Holy Spirit connection and correction is such a gift to walk in freedom. Walk by Spirit, not by flesh!
In May 2022, four of us women began prayer walking a piece of property. The Lord showed us pictures of what He had in store for a women’s event there. We prayed into it.
We saw His heart go into the depths of the women’s hearts like a quick arrow going straight in. We saw him put their hearts on operating tables, some barely alive with scar tissue and blockages. We saw Him hold each heart, flushing each with His breath of life. We sensed He wanted hearts to burn again with His fire – burning hearts fully alive.
We saw a cylinder from heaven going deep into a foundation for growth to happen. We sensed deep fellowship and connection. We saw Him fertilize seeds – growing them to become who they really are to be.
We even saw nuts cracking open and shells coming off. The Lord will speak and revive. He will strip it all away, breaking the ground, bringing them to supernatural acceleration over 3 days. The women’s hearts would be open, no more self-protection, no comparison. Fresh identity in His love for them. They would shed expectations of other women, so there could be a clarity of identity. New creation, and a different way of being creative.
We saw women with fire on their heads – newly ignited, hearts healed – and taking that fire home to their circles and it would multiply!
Five months later, in Sept/Oct 2022, we hosted women from across North America. Many traveled through all kinds of hoops to join us. What the Lord did among us women blew us all away.
One woman shared after she returned home:
“Good morning to all my sisters. Just want to say thank you to all of you for being so welcoming this past weekend.
Definitely has been a shift in the atmosphere in our home already. God has been preparing us both (hubby and me) for this new season. WOW!! When we find that safe place in Jesus and are willing to surrender in a deeper way breaking the alabaster box is not really that difficult. So again thank you for all your support, encouragement, affirmations and love. I am eternally grateful.
Thank you for…. Encouraging us to protect the spoils of battle that we gained at the retreat and to be aware of the devices of the enemy. I have had a number of opportunities to share with friends the freedom breakthrough I experienced.
Also I have been encouraged to ask Jesus what he wants to speak to me when I wake during the night. No more empty tossing, turning and fretting. One more thing. I woke this morning to a glimpse of women liberated, rejoicing in Jesus, almost like flames of fire…. I can’t even express in words what I saw and heard. It was so beautiful. . Holy Spirit is moving and reviving…. Dry bones are awakening and raising up a mighty army. PTL“
What she describes at the end is the exact vision my friends and I saw in May which was 5 months before the event!
🤩 I felt the nudge yesterday. For every woman who signs up for the upcoming online women’s event, I’m giving a free copy of my book with research and story… for yourself or loved ones going through depression. (This upcoming event: “From Ashes to Beauty” is not ONLY for those in depression. But, it’s a reality for many!) Here’s the book that continues to blow me away reaching over 120 countries from a simple website… and here’s the sign up page for the women’s event Ashes to Beauty, starting Feb 28th:
I recently had the joy of interviewing Murray Dueck who has been a mentor, teacher and such an encourager to me.
Murray has trained thousands of people in learning to hear Gods’ voice through local classes, seminars, and online training through Samuel’s Mantle Prophetic Training School of which I got to be apart of for 2 years.
He is the author of four books; ‘If This Were A Dream, What Would It Mean?’ (Freshwind Press) – ‘Keepers of the Presence,’ ‘On Things Above’ (Samuel’s Mantle Press), and ‘The Dreams We Dream
If you have been apart of my events, I’ve often given away his books!
Sue Carpenter is a globe trotter and 2nd generation missionary. She delights in Malaysian food and overseas adventures with Jesus.
Come hear what has happened to her since coming to the last 5 day kickstart (and joining our weekly group coaching community) and how it’s brought her healing, new identity, JOY AND FREEDOM!
“I used to think Ministry was like a pipeline. I was the conduit from God to people. I would train and go to seminars to give out to others because God loved them so much! But that really accelerated burnout. God disrupted that visual and said sadly to me: ‘That would mean you could never be a destination of my revelatory love. He said ‚’I see you as a tall vessel with goblets surrounding the base. You are my first destination beloved. I long to fill you from a never ending supply and keep filling you and as you overflow, those around you (represented by the goblets) will drink from your spillover! From this experience, everywhere I go, my intimacy will water the environment He places me in. I enjoyed inviting Holy Spirit in and asking Him questions to create with Him not for Him.
So honored to have been accepted into the coaching circle. I know Papa carried me here. Thankful. This was obviously a labor of love. Thank you Merri Ellen and team! Joyous!”
Come hear more of her story!
She is scheduled to share on Oct 21st at 11AM Pacific.
