SOLUTIONS TO BULLYING

Bullying Solutions

SUFFERING IN SILENCE

Bullying can enter a kid’s life at anytime and send them spiraling down towards hopelessness and despair. The young victims are rarely aware of the options available to them, which is why they continue to suffer in silence. You need to help your child realize that they’re not weak and help them discover ways to bring their torment to an end.

A SUFFOCATING EXPERIENCE

Bullying can often leave the victim feeling utterly distraught, making them feel like the walls are closing in on them and that there’s no easy escape from the nightmare. People they turn to for help can let them down, thus reinforcing their sense of isolation. Depression despair and desperation can drive them to the edge, tempting them to end their misery at the expense of their health, dreams and even life.

WARNING SIGNS

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) identify these possible warning signs for bullying:

  • Child comes home with torn, damaged or missing clothes, books, or belongings
  • Unexplained cuts, bruises, scratches
  • Has few friends, if any
  • Seems afraid to go to school or take part in after-school activities
  • Takes a long “illogical” route when walking to and from school
  • Has lost interest in school work or suddenly begins to do poorly
  • Appears sad, moody, teary, or depressed when he/she comes home
  • Has trouble sleeping and/or frequent bad dreams
  • Experiences a loss of appetite
  • Appears anxious and suffers from low self-esteem
  • Recurrent complaints of physical symptoms such as stomach-aches or headaches with no apparent cause
  • Sudden change in language (calling themselves a “loser” or a best friend a “jerk”)

SLEEP DEPRIVATION

SLEEP DEPRIVATIONSLEEP DEPRIVED?

Do you count yourself in with 100 million Americans who are sleep deprived? The root causes are overcrowded schedules, the desire to accomplish one more thing before retiring and too much stimulation from watching television in bed.

You say that you have a rough time falling asleep. Try an Epsom salt bath, which allows the magnesium to be absorbed into your skin and they will put you into a total relaxation mode.

Sleep and relaxation are basic necessities in life. We need sleep: our body needs time for the liver to start its cleansing process and time to allow the proper production of hormones. When we don’t sleep enough, our appetites become unregulated.

The Great Physician has a prescription, “Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”                             Genesis 2:3

INSOMNIA

Individuals who were extremely obese had higher odds of reporting insomnia than those of normal weight. The prevalence of insomnia among seniors was largely attributable to poorer health, not age. 

One elderly lady had always problems with sleeping. She had been heavily involved in yoga when she was younger. There are some dangers with this practice if one delves into too deeply. We call this an ungodly superstitious belief.  A crack in a person’s spirit is opened to allow an influence from demonic attack. Deliverance is needed!  “…Oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them.”                                                                                                            Psalm 54:3

Life stress also kept Canadians up at night, the study says. Nearly one-quarter (23 per cent) of people who described most of their days as being either “quite a bit” or “extremely” stressful reported insomnia.

In the mist of all David’s troubles he still honored and praised God as his protector, his shield, and strength: “But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.”                                                                                                                                             Psalm 3: 3

BRAIN HEALTH CAN HELP!

Your brain is the fattest organ in your body. The human brain is nearly 60 percent fat. We’ve learned in recent years that fatty acids are among the most crucial molecules that determine your brain’s integrity and ability to perform. Continue reading SLEEP DEPRIVATION

DEMAND FOR EXORCISM

DEMAND FOR EXORCISM

GROWING DEMAND FOR EXORCISMS

Two of America’s most active exorcists say there is now a growing demand for their services as more unchurched Americans have been turning to them for help with demonic oppression, possession and other dark spiritual activity.

Father Gary Thomas, from The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist, and Father Vincent Lampert, in the series “Paranormal Witness” commented that the increase in exorcism was caused by:

  • an expanding spiritual void in the lives of Americans
  • the diminishing authority of the Church
  • the failure of the mental healthcare system

They say an overwhelming number of requests that they get from people seeking help are regularly diagnosed as actual manifestations of demonic attachment, infestation, vexation or full possession. Many of the requests for help are not coming from practicing Christians but the unchurched segment of the population. Many of those who seek help are desperate people who have had no success with psychology and psychiatry.

We’re gaining all sorts of knowledge but there’s still that emptiness within us that is being filled with addictive behavior such as drugs and pornography. There’s a line in the Old Testament that says when one grows in knowledge one also grows in despair. “For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.”                                                                                                                 Ecclesiastes 1: 18

The struggle against evil in society is becoming more of an emergency, and there is a direct cause: horror films, books, and television series which create temptation. Reading “occult books,” watching “occult movies,” can expose people to demonic possession. The most common occult activity is using an Ouija board to summon the dead.

DEMAND FOR EXORCISMS

The demand for exorcists in the U.S. appears to be following a global trend some say has been inspired by the leadership of Pope Francis in acknowledging the presence of the devil. Pope Francis has warned in past speeches that Satanism is on the rise in the world, and has praised exorcists for combating “the devil’s works.”

More people are finding out about exorcism because of radio programs like “Light in the Darkness.” in the Philippines. Television programs depict exorcism such as Fox’s “The Exorcist”.

DEMAND FOR EXORCISMS

The few people, who are possessed, may lose consciousness and they may even speak strange languages. Very well-mannered people may begin to vomit and blaspheme. Some may have inordinate strength.

Most people are not possessed in this way, but they can be influenced by the devil in subtle ways. They feel really bad. There are sign posts:

UNBOUNDED!

Unbounded“Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”                                                                                   1 Peter 5:8

Sometimes temptation is not a struggle against personal weakness, but it is a strategic demonic attack to derail one’s faith. Yet, “Resist the devil and he will flee from youJames 4:7. When we are tempted, God will provide a way out: “And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”                                                                                                       1 Corinthians 10:13

Resisting temptation, repenting of sin, and renouncing the works of the devil and forgiving those who have harmed you account for 98% of all deliverance. Deliverance simple removes any obstacles so we may receive God’s blessing.

Unbounded

 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12 Yet, the area of evil influences goes unnoticed and unaddressed in the pursuit of God’s healing. Too many Christians are quickly turning to professional counselors when a problem arises. God wants us to be healed and He wants us to be blessed. His power of deliverance is much greater that that of a gifted counselor.

Over 95 % of most people have no physical manifestation of evil. Yet, most believers will admit that certain areas of their lives are not submitted to Christ. Ironically, many faithful Christians have lived with hidden sins, compulsions, and fear and it never occurred to them that they are in need of deliverance from evil spirits. Of course, there are those who think that they can solve the problem themselves. So, pride prevents those from receiving God’s forgiveness and mercy.

Fear and unforgiveness are the biggest obstacles to being set free. It is the most prominent entryway of the devil: we need to respond to trauma, abuse, and issues involving family and friends. Once an entryway is exposed from this evil world such as alcohol, drugs and pleasure seeking, taking authority is very simple.

During a prayer of deliverance one may be asked to renounce a specific spirit. For example, you would repeat after the deliverer: “I renounce the spirit of unforgiveness, hurt and rejection. I forgive you _____________ or I renounce the spirit of adultery and unfaithfulness.

Then all healing happens when we repent or forgive and turn to God; it is then when we experience His love and acceptance. The interplay between healing and deliverance is integrated. Healing cannot be done unless there is total deliverance.

POST TRAUMATIC SYNDROMEIn ancient Greece, it was called, “divine madness”. During the U.S. Civil War it was called, “soldier’s heart”. During World War I it was called, “shell shock”. During World War II it was called “combat fatigue” and during the Viet Nam War it was called, “PTSD (Post Traumatic Syndrome Disorder).

NEEDING ESSENTIAL DELIVERANCE

Deliverance EssentialTRYING TO MEET NEEDS IN THE WRONG PLACES

In Alcoholic Anonymous  they have a saying for insanity: trying to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. We  are often guilty of insane behavior. 

First we must identify what our real needs are.  For example, caring for children can mask the need to care for ourselves. We can get stuck trying to meet false needs.

There are four essential needs

  • Affirmation: we need to be acknowledged and appreciated.
  • We need to express love: to hug and share.
  • We need to share our emotions and our experiences: what we think and what we feel.
  • We need to grow; we need space and opportunity to grow.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU

ESSENTIAL DELIVERANCE

Come and join Me in the desert. I am here in a large cave where I spend My days with the Father in prayer. I am getting ready to begin My public life to bring the Good News to the people. Here in the desert I was tempted by the devil three times.

MARIJUANA AS MEDICINE 2

There is no level of marijuana use that is actually completely safe. . even the casual use of marijuana changes the brain. This new marijuana is beyond simple medical use for pain.

MARIJUANA MEDICINE

The adolescent brain — particularly the part of the brain that regulates planning for complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making and social behavior — is not fully developed until the early to mid-20s.

Marijuana also affects brain development, and when it is used heavily by young people, its effects on thinking and memory may last a long time or even be permanent. And a large long-term study in New Zealand showed that people who began smoking marijuana heavily in their teens lost an average of 8 points in IQ between age 13 and age 38. Importantly, the lost cognitive abilities were not fully restored in those who quit smoking marijuana as adults.

IS MARIJUANA ADDICTIVE?

Research has found that 1 in 11 of all marijuana users will become addicted to the drug. And if a person begins using under the age of 18, that number rises to one in six people.  We also know that almost 60% of new marijuana users each year are under age 18.

NEED FOR FORGIVENESS 2

 RECEIVING FORGIVENESS

One of the greatest challenges of the spiritual life is to receive God’s forgiveness. There is something in us humans that keeps us clinging to our sins and preventing us from letting God erase our past and offer us completely new beginnings. Sometimes it even seem as though we want to prove to God that our darkness is too great to overcome.                                                                                     

There are two sides to forgiveness: giving and receiving. Although at first sight giving seems to be harder, it often appears that we are not able to offer forgiveness to others because we have not been able fully to receive it. Only as people who have accepted forgiveness can we find the inner freedom to give it. Why is receiving forgiveness so difficult? It is very hard to say, “Without your forgiveness I am still bound to what happened between us. Only you can set me free.” That requires not only a confession that we have hurt somebody but also the humility to acknowledge our dependency on others. Only when we can receive forgiveness can we give it.                                                                                        HENRI NOUWEN

“Should a man nourish anger against his fellows and expect healing from the LORD?
Should a man refuse mercy to his fellows, yet seek pardon for his own sins?

If he who is but flesh cherishes wrath, who will forgive his sins?
Remember your last days, set enmity aside; remember death and decay, and cease from sin. ”                                                            Sirach 28:3-6

NEED FOR FORGIVENESS

One of the hardest things in life is to let go of old hurts. We often say, or at least think: “What you did to me and my family, my ancestors, or my friends I cannot forget or forgive. … One day you will have to pay for it.” Sometimes our memories are decades, even centuries old, and keep asking for revenge.

Yes, we can get attached to these negative identities and even take morbid pleasure in them. It might be good to have a look at these dark feelings and explore where they come from. Henri Nouwen Continue reading NEED FOR FORGIVENESS 2

MARIJUANA, the INSIDE DOPE 2

IS IT GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH?

Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug worldwide, with 5 million daily users worldwide.

Christians in America are facing the challenge of a majority approval of marijuana. A recent Gallup Poll revealed that 58% of Americans now favor its legalization, and 67% of ages 18 to 29 back legalization. Yet when Gallup first asked the question in 1969, only 12% favored legalization.

By September 2017, there was some form of marijuana legalization in 29 states and the District of Columbia. This massive change has occurred in less than fifty years, and it is a major sign of the seismic shift occurring in our culture—a shift that should concern Christians deeply.

What do we know about marijuana? Is it good for our health? Or can it be harmful and even lead to psychosis? But, most important, how does the Bible deal with it?
