Enlightening & Empowering You During Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Oct 30, 2016   //   by Tina McCrea   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Enlightening & Empowering You During Domestic Violence Awareness Month

 october-dometic-violence-awareness-month

I am so grateful for a month set aside to raise the awareness of domestic violence across our land.  Just writing that first sentence had me pause and ask, “How did we get here?”  How did we as a people who longed for the “Leave It To Beaver” and “Happy Days” families back in the day get to a place in time where it is common place to hear a man call a woman all kinds of names in a song, or slap a woman on prime time TV and it not cause us to lift our hand and say, “No thank you.  I’m not buying that today.”?

It has been far too long since my last blog but I could not let this month pass by without lifting up a voice to empower that young lady or man who is in the trenches of turmoil and thinks there is no way out and nobody to tell.

love-shouldnt-hurt

I hope by now you realize that Love, real Love, shouldn’t hurt.  Don’t believe the lie that this is what love is and that you may have deserved it or did something to trigger this level of response from someone who promised to love you.  Doing more cleaning around the house is not going to clean up a person’s heart.   Jesus Love You!  Jesus Loves You unconditionally.  Even if you make a mistake Jesus LOVES YOU!  In your abusive situation Jesus LOVES YOU.  It’s time for YOU to love YOU enough to get help.  Remove the lie from the center of your belief and step into real love.  Accept God’s Love as a breath of fresh air today.

 

Acts 3:19Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

19 So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of [a]reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord;

Take in a fresh start by changing your way of thinking.  Breaking Free starts in the inner self. The mind.  You can move out before you change addresses.  Move out of the state of self-loathing, self-pity, and self-hatred.  Receive God’s forgiveness spoken of in Acts 3:19 and LOVE again.  Love YOU.   It feels shaking at first but the more you say, “I’m okay today” each day gets easier and easier.  Pray and ask God to help you.  Oh Yes!  You can ask him for help even if you didn’t ask him about getting into the relationship in the first place. Look at the scripture above.  It instructs you how to RETURN to GOD.  It’s okay and your sins will be wiped clean.  Hallelujah!  Your significance and purpose in life is found through faith in Jesus Christ not in a human being.  I pray that this blog helps you experience times of refreshing and relieves you from the shame that has held you hostage for so long.

no-longer-ahamed

Restoring your relationship with God and regaining fresh perspective about yourself will empower you to realize that you are not the blame for being beaten and you no longer have to feel ashamed.  Speak out.  Ask your company Human Resources Department if they have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that can help you.  It is usually a paid benefit and it’s confidential.  Tell your pastor or a spiritual adviser or simply call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) available 24/7 in over 170 languages. All calls are confidential and anonymous.

There’s so much that I have to say about this topic that I wrote a book about it titled “Empowering Truth: Real Stories About Overcoming Domestic Violence & Abuse”.  This book opens up a dialogue for real freedom and truth. This is a life-changing story that will take you to the next level and teach you how to come out of domestic violence and abuse and never to return again!”  If you are a man or a woman who needs to Break Free, Stay Free, and BE Free, you need to get this book.  Notice that I said, man or woman.  Men are not going to tell that they are going through domestic violence and abuse because of the stigma and shame associated with it.  Men can use these same principles in their situation.  YES, you can!  Remove the lie out of the center of what you believe and put the Empowering Truth of God’s Holy Word there.

Get help today.  You can order my book off Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Expected End Entertainment.

Get back to a right relationship with God; Get a grip on your self-worth, self-confidence, and significant purpose for living; Get your copy of Empowering Truth: Real Stories About Overcoming Domestic Violence & Abuse.

Liberated to Serve Christ & Empower You,

Prayer With A Purpose – Purification of The Heart

Jun 16, 2015   //   by Tina McCrea   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Prayer With A Purpose – Purification of The Heart

National-HIV-Testing-Day 

Love Yourself Get Tested

During the month of June our ministry has been providing teachings on purification and sexual wholeness to assist people who are struggling with lust, masturbation, pornography, sexual addictions, and unwanted same-sex attractions.  WHY and What does this have to do with HIV one may ask?  Because we want to enlighten and empower people to be free by uncovering the spiritual seed of the issue and not just talk about the what’s wrong but offer hope to the person that has become a prisoner to their passions.  This hope is found in the Lord Jesus Christ who liberates and makes people really and unquestionably FREE without a trace (John 8:36 AMP).

 James 1:13-15 MSG  

“Don’t let anyone under pressure to give in to evil say, “God is trying to trip me up.” God is impervious to evil, and puts evil in no one’s way. The temptation to give in to evil comes from us and only us. We have no one to blame but the leering, seducing flare-up of our own lust. Lust gets pregnant, and has a baby: sin! Sin grows up to adulthood, and becomes a real killer.

If you or someone you know feels trapped or hopeless then you’ve stopped by the right place today.  Click Here for a Prayer with a Purpose and receive your freedom as Minister Eugene Blakely prays for Purification of The Heart.  What does the heart have to do with your healing?  Take a look at what Jesus had to say about the heart.

Matthew 15:18-20 (MSG)

Jesus replied, “You, too? Are you being willfully stupid? Don’t you know that anything that is swallowed works its way through the intestines and is finally defecated? But what comes out of the mouth gets its start in the heart. It’s from the heart that we vomit up evil arguments (reasonings and designs), murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, lies, and cussing. That’s what pollutes. Eating or not eating certain foods, washing or not washing your hands—that’s neither here nor there.”

Elder Gary and Apostle Tina McCrea know first hand that it is not the end for a person diagnosed with HIV (See his testimony under the Breaking Free tab of www.withoutatraceministries.com).  This is ultimately why we are sharing compassionately without compromise these principles of freedom.  Join the movement and share hope with someone today!

Prayer With A Purpose – “Praying & Seeking Christ In The Psalms”

Mar 31, 2015   //   by Tina McCrea   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Prayer With A Purpose – “Praying & Seeking Christ In The Psalms”

In preparing for the month, I was searching for images that I thought would be fitting for different events and came across this one:

Praying_the_Psalms

 

It hit me that this was the next purposeful direction that we will be taking in prayer.  As I begin to look into this further I found an article written by  Bill Gaultiere on the subject.  I also found another article written by Jason Hood who speak about how we can preach Jesus through the Psalms.  I will be using a combination of the two to share each week along with whatever the Father gives me to share in prayer.

 

This week is Holy Week and although you may think the Psalms have nothing to do with the risen savior, I encourage you to click here and listen for yourself.  Don’t cause your fear of hypocrites in church to make you become one this Resurrection Sunday.  Seek out a place to join in with a congregation of true worshipers and sing Psalms of praise to the Messiah!

Prayer With A Purpose for Women & Girls with HIV/AIDS

Mar 10, 2015   //   by Tina McCrea   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Prayer With A Purpose for Women & Girls with HIV/AIDS

National Women & Girls HIV AIDS Awareness Day

 

Ruth 2:20 New International Version (NIV)

“The LORD bless him!” Naomi said to her daughter-in-law. “He has not stopped showing his kindness to

the living and the dead.” She added, “That man is our close relative; he is one of our

guardian-redeemers.”

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary a guardian is someone or something that watches or protects something law : someone who takes care of another person or of another person’s property.  The New Combined Bible dictionary and concordance states that a redeemer is one who redeems.

If you are a women or girl with HIV/AIDS, Click here  and learn more and pray about how to allow Jesus Christ to become your guardian-redeemer.  There is a special testimony from Pastor Tina sharing how this same guardian-redeemer impacted her marriage with a man diagnosed with HIV.  The reality of Jesus being our guardian-redeemer is what lead us to adapt John 8:36 AMP as our way of life and ministry Without A Trace.

John 8:36 Amplified Bible (AMP)

“So if the son liberates you [makes you free men] then you are really and unquestionably free.”

 

Prayer With A Purpose – Revival of Justice

Feb 24, 2015   //   by Tina McCrea   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Prayer With A Purpose – Revival of Justice

BiblicalLaw-and-Justice

 

Have you noticed that there has been a rise in the resolution of cold cases?  What about the discovery of that airplane wreckage in Chile that had been missing for over 50 years?  Where there seems to be a great injustice in the earth our God is going to revive us with his justice.  We We seek not to purge evil with guns/knives/or assassinating words but yield to the sanctifying power of God’s Truth and the guidance of his Holy Spirit.

 

 

Psalm 119:155-160 The Message (MSG)

 “Salvation” is only gibberish to the wicked
    because they’ve never looked it up in your dictionary.
Your mercies, God, run into the billions;
    following your guidelines, revive me.
My antagonists are too many to count,
    but I don’t swerve from the directions you gave.
I took one look at the quitters and was filled with loathing;
    they walked away from your promises so casually!
Take note of how I love what you tell me;
    out of your life of love, prolong my life.
Your words all add up to the sum total: Truth.
    Your righteous decisions are eternal.

This is the topic of our prayer this week.  Join the movement back to intercession and pray with me for justice.

Prayer With A Purpose – Believe In Jesus Christ

Dec 23, 2014   //   by Tina McCrea   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Prayer With A Purpose – Believe In Jesus Christ

The Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed reminds us of what is truly important.  Sometimes it’s easy to get distracted by so many cliches and doctrines of men but if you just focus on believing that God loved us so much that he sent his only begotten son so that you and I will possess eternal life that keeps is simple.  In addition to that great news, God wanted us to be forever comforted and guided so he sent his Holy Spirit to lead, guide, and remind us of all that Jesus said. WOW!  What a thoughtful gift!

As you listen to this recording you will hear the Nicene Creed read and a song that reminds us to believe in The Name of Jesus. Today, help someone get to KNOW Jesus by allowing them to SEE him alive in You.

Let this be a holy holiday filled with peace and good will towards others. God was willing to forgive us of our sins by sending his son to the earth. Through the same grace and power of Christ’s love, let us forgive those who have caused injustices, hurt us, or even betrayals.  Give a thoughtful gift this Christmas Season.  Give grace, mercy, peace or even a fruit basket of love to someone this Christmas.

 

Galatians 5:22 – 23

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

 23gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
