Negative Confirmation

Usually, I'm a fairly upbeat person.  I place my hope in our Creator, so I really don't worry, much.  It is my understanding that worry leads to stress and negative perceptions that either never happen or becoming "self-fulfilling prophesies."  I've also come to accept that the only thing in life I can really change or control is me!  Folks gonna do what they want . . . My purpose is to serve my Heavenly Father, follow His Son, and let my light shine.

I am called to share The Good News, but I'm not called to argue about The Good News.  It's not all sunshine and roses, but I have abundant life.  As I've followed Messiah, I've learned a great many things along the way.  Everything has not gone the way I'd hoped in the natural, and yet again, my hope is in Him, and He changes not, nor can He fail.  It seems we all have certain hopes for our own life that is not part of His plan, and I'm so thankful He has spared me of some of the things I thought I wanted.  Then there is the hope we have in others, and they don't meet those hopes and make other choices.  I have come to realize there are more than a few people in my life that have made other choices, and yet there is a consistency that I've noticed.

It's taken me a few years to realize "negative confirmation" doesn't mean I've done the wrong thing, it usually means the narrow road is narrowing further . . .  I spent much of my life lacking any sort of self confidence, so I looked for approval, or rather; expected disapproval and tried to avoid it.  I didn't even consider hoping for respect, just hoped to avoid the glare and comments of disapproval.  Now, however; it seems when I've done something notable in service to my King, something negative comes right at me!

With great consistency, every time the ministry outreach is expanding or a new book is published, something in my personal life, i.e. family, gets crazy!  Without fail the negativity and/or problems roll in.  I now realize and have come to term this:  Negative Confirmation.  Just like the third law of physics recorded by Newton:   For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Alternative Health

I recently discovered the term "Native" is contained in the word, "alternative:  AlterNATIVE."
I've also been giving a great deal of thought to the words of Messiah in Matthew 10:8.   Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Here at the Land of Goshen, and Bethesda Renaissance Villa, I'm bringing the two together in wellness management.  I have freely received "time and life" from our Heavenly Father, and want to freely give.  I am not diagnosing, and the healing is up to YHUH.  I am reaching out to those who are dealing with chronic conditions of pain, and the only offer you've been given is "pain management" through Big Pharma.

If the cost was only gas money, a love offering, and 3-5 days of your life, would you step out in faith and alternative wellness?  I've never had full peace about a charge for guests at Bethesda Renaissance Villa.  Even after seeking wise counsel . . . still no peace until now.  I have to have some sort of notice of guests, due to accommodations and scheduling, but there will be no set price.  We all know the cost of food and accommodations, and the outrageous price of mainstream health care . . . Each scheduled event will have a button to make a donation, and I'm willing to also make special guest arrangements at unscheduled times.  I realize there are many believers attempting to be Torah obedient, who simply do not have much funding.  Sadly, due to mandatory government health regulation many are paying high health insurance rates and copay.  

The most despicable factor in American Health Care now, is the fact that doctors can "fire" patients!  Of course, when those with their god complex "fires" their patient, that event becomes part of their medical records, therefore; this patient becomes banned and labeled, on a larger scale.  Many people who live in constant pain are treated quite disrespectfully, if they seek relief in an ER.  When the person who is being payed, can fire the one who is paying them, something is seriously wrong!  Health and wellness has taken a back seat to Big Pharma and Power.

Now that so many in America are taking some sort of prescription for mental and emotional health issues, rest assured, those prescriptions will soon involve decisions being made "for your own good."  Health care and the court system have been intertwined for years, but now in "open collusion," wield an ungodly authority.  These two powerful entities are brought together through so called "protective" agencies such as DFS, CPS, EPS, APD, etc.  There are a great many government agencies with more power than the Bill of Rights to "protect" everyone from basket to casket.

So, in a nut shell, I'm going to open this place to those who desire a change in managing chronic pain or desire to deal with developed issues by natural means, on a Scriptural foundation.  I don't know if this will be received positively or negatively, but it is a fact!  . . . Our physical health is affected by our spiritual condition and our emotions.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.  III John 2
