Come Home to the Father - by Jack Frost

I really wanted to repost this as there are so many things coming up recently in Gateway CDA that seems to be shaking.  People's wounds are coming to the surface and issues that have been long hidden, God is looking to heal now.

Fasting & Raw Flesh

This fasting journey has been so revealing and so fruitful. I was surprised, and then I realized how I shouldn’t be surprised, that I had so much grace for it. I’ve never been a successful faster before. But then again, I’ve never had my heart so aligned with Papa’s before. I’ve always fasted for things that I’ve wanted or of which I was unsure, not for things that I knew were the desire of His heart. Also, I’ve never been hungrier for the things of God than I am in this season of my life.

Transparency

God showed me very early on when I was struggling with sexual things that the best way to deal with them was to bring it all to the light.  I sat down with my youth pastor at the time after being heavily prompted by the Holy Spirit and bared all to him about how I was struggling as a teenager with these things.  I didn't want to be struggling and had so much shame attached to it. I fought God at first, but once I gave in, there was such a weight lifted from me.  I had a sense of freedom for the first time after struggling with this.
