If you didn't read the blog yesterday, I suggest you scroll down and read it before you read this, this is the second installment of my letter from heaven I know it will help you as it helped me! I copied it exactly, including his sometimes-unique punctuations and spelling!

GOD HAS ALWAYS HAD A SIMPLE PROCEDURE TO FOLLOW From the very beginning God expects total loyalty.

Let us look at an area of our lives we almost never look at with any desire to change: Our Self Esteem or Respect for one’s self = “A person may be successful, flourishing, thriving” but at the same time have a very low self esteem: I see suffering; unnecessary insecureness. I don’t need money; I only want to make a difference in the lives of those I meet:

God’s people will not let evil succeed in their own lives: A low self-esteem can lead one into deep depression: You may be able to impress your colleges and leave good attitudes about yourself yet feel like a total failure when you’re alone.

I know married people who have everything you could physically want, yet those same people often says they find no joy in living. When we doubt ourselves, we cripple our own self-esteem:

There is a cancer of the mind, which can be as deadly upon one’s self-esteem as cancer is to the body. That cancer of our emotions can lead one to do self-destructive actions against their own body: Don’t belittle yourself. Suicide is a common destructive act against one’s self.

Recently God allowed me to lay hands on such a person and rebuke that destructive attitude and see a complete change in that person’s overall self-esteem: When that happened the FROWN, the blank look in the eyes disappeared and when I saw this person several weeks later she said, “All my anxiety has left me and my heart is full of joy” :

Monday was not a good day for me and as I sat out on my deck for my fifteen minutes of sun, which I allow myself every day, I was praying. I went inside the door and picked up a box and started going through some old letters and papers laying inside of the box decorated in leopard print. About halfway down was a letter addressed to me, I recognized the handwriting of my Uncle Harding, then I looked at the date stamped on the envelope, it was mailed one month to the day before he went to heaven. My Uncle spoke into my life many times, he did it again in absentia through the letter. I want to share his words of wisdom, and will probably do it a few days in a row to keep it from being too long to tackle and read on here, I hope it helps you as much as it did me!

All of you want to know what God’s policy is for your life; go all the way back to the Old Testament and you will discover a consistency, a mutual suitability, a shared likeness of giving, caring, rewarding all who serve Him.

GOD SETS THE TABLE OF CHOICE BEFORE US HERE IN Deuteronomy 11:26-28 "Behold I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; a blessing if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day: and a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods."

WE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT A COMPLETE MAKEOVER Computer enhancement says that by obeying and keeping the Word of God in your heart V 21 "That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children…as the days of heaven upon the earth."

Think what this will mean for your marriage and your children’s future!

 In tomorrow’s installment he starts to talk about “Our self esteem” and what God has to say about it. Each page is signed “By Jesus and HGM”

I had mail from a lot of you saying that you had experienced the feeling of “the other shoe dropping” and feeling depressed. I think for the next few days I will continue to talk about it.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

I was talking with someone who is of "my generation" and the line from this old song came up, "I've got a peaceful, easy feeling and I know you won't let me down". The words before and after that don't matter in this context, the point was that those words caught at my heart. Again let me ask, how many times do you go to bed and wake up un-easy, worried and sometimes you don't even really know "what" you are worried about? A psychiatrist would say that is called "floating anxiety" or being anxious without knowing why. 

Philippians 4:6 Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

Read that verse and digest it, let it nourish your soul and spirit the way your body digests the food you eat. Your body assimilates the food using the vitamins and minerals that are in it for its benefit. Did you digest that? Ok, now read this: 

1Peter 5:7 So be content with who you are, and don't put on airs. God's strong hand is on you; he'll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.

Have you ever had the feeling of "impending doom"? You feel as though something extremely bad is going to happen but you are not sure what. You may also feel as though your world is coming to an end. This fear of "what if" may be intermittent, frequent, or on going and these fears can cause you fear episodes and even panic. Often, these types of fears are hard to break free of.

While thinking of these things the scripture came to mind, Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Which led me to look in my old lesson notes for the explanation of that "body of this death".  At the time when the Epistle to the Romans was written a murderer was punished in a peculiar and terrible manner. The dead body of the one murdered was tied to the living body of the murderer, head to head, hand-to-hand, foot-to-foot, and the living one was bound to the dead one till death. The murderer could go where he pleased, but wherever he went he had to carry the corpse of that murdered man with him. Could punishment be more appalling? Yet this is the illustration Paul now uses. It is as though he were bound to a dead body and unable to get free. Wherever he goes he is hampered by this terrible burden. At last he can bear it no longer and cries: “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me...?” And then, in a flash of illumination, his cry of despair changes to a song of praise. He has found the answer to his question. Romans 7:25 “I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord”

No way to deliver yourself right? It was only by the mercies of Jesus' death that we are free. Say it out loud, "I am free!" Now it is the Holy Spirit who lives in us that knows right from wrong and helps us to live accordingly, He is our friend that will always be our Comforter.

This afternoon I was on a road that had a few houses facing the street, something bobbing up and down in a yard on the left side caught my eye as I drove so I kept watching as it became apparent as I got closer that the bobbing was a little girl in a yellow dress jumping rope. Her shoulder-length brown hair was flying from the force of jumping and the rope swishing over it. As I got closer I slowed down to get a better view and I could see that she was totally involved in what she was doing and she never missed a step. As I drove away I glanced back in my side rear-view mirror for as long as I could get a glimpse of the little jumping girl. She captured my attention as she jumped looking as if she didn’t have a worry in the world except making sure she didn’t trip on the rope and I remembered jumping rope that way a long, long time ago.

I was feeling happy until I turned on the television, bad move.

Hebrews 12:14 Work at getting along with each other and with God Otherwise you'll never get so much as a glimpse of God. Make sure no one gets left out of God's generosity. Keep a sharp eye out for weeds of bitter discontent. A thistle or two gone to seed can ruin a whole garden in no time. King James says it this way, "Follow peace with all men and holiness, without which no man will see God"

I want to be that little girl with the shoulder-length brown hair in the yellow dress jumping rope with abandon!
