Please pray...

Recommended Posts

This is long, so please bear with me!!!

 

I want to write you today and ask for your prayers and support for my friend Lynette. We were great friend from high school, and now that each of us are close to (and entering) our 30’s we have since moved apart (she in Virginia and I in Kentucky) and have married and have children. We both suffered a divorce, and remarriage, having 2 children and the ups and downs of married life. We both dedicated our lives to christ, and she and her husband moved away from Ky so that he could join the music ministry of their new church. Life seems great, but there were things that surfaced. Her husband was brought up in a home of a very different religion (JW) and it was a hard conversion for him. He struggled with growing up as an only child and had a difficult time with porn. After he and Lynette were married, it wasn’t an issue and it stopped. They got into church and everything was fine, then some of his friends entered it back into his life. Lynette found out about it, and it literally crushed her. She has always been a beautiful person, but it really tore into her self esteem. She was always very small in high school and never weighed more than 115-125 lbs. When she had her DD she weighed 150lbs. When she found out about the internet she weighed about 158 lbs and she thought it was about her. She went on a diet and started to lose weight. They worked out their problems and are still together, but she is fighting to live at only 94 lbs. She had obsessed about her self so much that she became anorexic and wouldn’t eat. She is admitting herself in to the hospital today for inpatient care. There is so much more to the story than that. She said she almost went crazy, and I know a lot stems from her past as well. It isn’t just what her husband did. She got fired from her job because she used her work bank account to pay some of her bills. It ate at her and she confessed. She spent 4 days in jail and has a court hearing today to see if she will have to go back. She can never work in accounting again and has ruined her reputation in her community. She could also lose her DD if her EH ever finds out about her jail time. This is not the Lynette that I know. She used to be the “goody,goody girl” growing up, and would never do things like this. I just know she needs all of the prayers she can get, so that she can get better. It seems like the harder we try to be good and please god, the more satan tries to interfere. I really am glad that she is taking a step and trying to get help for her eating disorter.

 

 

Thanks for your prayers,

Melissa

Those Pesky Demons - Call them out!!

 

Melissa,

 

I firmly believe in spiritual warfare and I firmly believe that praying in the name of Jesus Christ to bind the enemy from your friend’s life works! When you pray call these demons out by name, i.e. anorexia, self-esteem, dishonesty, theft, etc. Once she is loosed of those demons only then can the eyes of her heart be opened, paving the way for healing.

 

And remember that as painful as it is to watch your friend deteriorate, do not let it be a stumbling block for you. The only way that our faith can be proven is to test it in circumstances such as these.

 

God bless you Melissa, you and your friend will be in my prayers today.

 

Love in Christ,

Eileen

I'll keep her in my prayers. Although I haven't had an eating disorder, I have had and am having my share of unhealthy coping methods from my past. I hope and pray she gets into counseling if she isn't already.

Let me update everyone. She went to her hearing and they posponed it I guess, because they still don't know what they are going to do on her case. After that, she went to the hospital. They did blood work etc and said she was very healthy, but she only weighed 89lbs. She talked to a counsler while she was there and she said it helped her alot. She also said she belived God was at work in her because she was so afraid of being put into the hospital and being away from her kids. She said this helped her to see that she needs to work on it so that she won't have to be torn from her family. Thank you all for your prayers and support. I know anytime there is a trouble or need I can call on my girls at these boards for support!

 

With love,

Melissa
