RW MAY 2018 BLOG

Message from the heart by Judi A. Thompson I recently walked through a courtyard that was beautiful and pristine. I didn’t linger but had taken notice how everything seems so clean and in order.  Later in the day I went back through the same area after the winds picked up. I was taken back with the condition and visual impact the wind left on the courtyard. Leaves had been released from the trees and swirled into random piles all over the…

RW APRIL 2018 Blog

I’d like to share a thought I believe the Lord gave me regarding entitlement and the ongoing struggle that so many Christians have when they lose sight of the awesome privilege of God’s grace. I can best illustrate this concept with a story. An adult son visits his parents at their home for a two-week stay. He is very close to them, but has been living in another country for some time. During his visit, he falls into his old habits of…

Replacing The Lies of our Society and Culture with God’s Truth – testimonial

It wasn’t until I was introduced to Restoring Wholeness ministries back in 2010 that I came to understand much of my life I had been living in fear, fear of rejection, fear of failure, and fear of abandonment just to name a few. My only coping mechanisms for dealing with these cruel feelings were ones I was deeply ashamed of, keeping in great secret. Growing up in a home with pretty much no reverence for God and all reverence for…

A letter to a friend…

A letter to a friend regarding masturbation Dear friend, You asked me, “What do I think of masturbation”…hum…boy, that’s a hot topic throughout the Christian world in this day and time! Personally, I don’t think it’s God’s plan or best for us…for some it becomes an ‘addictive behaviour’ and for some ‘compulsive’. When that happens, it becomes our ‘control devise’. We LOVE … Continue reading

The Brokenness and Healing Legitimate Needs by W.C.Thompson

One of the important realizations I’ve had in my healing journey is that I have legitimate needs which, for some reason, were not met in my formative years. This coupled with the experiences of abuse and plain-old broken ways of thinking and being has given rise to my neediness, confusion and stinking thinking. I came to the conclusion it’s very important that we learn to distinguish between the legitimate needs related to our sexuality and our emotions and the false…

RWM Blog April 2017 – “Fake News”

Fake news – by Judith A. Thompson (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Fake news websites (also referred to as hoax news[1][2]) deliberately publish hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation purporting to be real news—often using social media to drive web traffic and amplify their effect.[3][4][5] Unlike news satire, fake news websites seek to mislead rather than entertain readers, often for financial or political gain.[6][4] Such sites have promoted political falsehoods in Germany,[7][8] Indonesia and the Philippines,[9] Sweden,[10][11] Myanmar,[12] and the United States.[13][14][15] Many sites originate, or are promoted, from Russia,[3][13][16] Macedonia,[17][18] Romania,[19] and the United States.[20][21] Yesterday I noticed a post on Facebook from…

Stuck in Conflict

Getting to the place where we are sick and tired of being sick and tired…hum, that’s when we are ready to nail our control, desires, stinking thinking to the Cross…and let them die there. The only reason why we become or continue to be conflicted is that we want our cake and eat it too…you know what I mean? We want the truth to be – “we CAN serve two masters”. And after a while of that battle,..however long it…

Security from Yesterday – Oswald Chambers

“You shall not go out with haste,…for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.” —Isaiah 52:12 Security from Yesterday. “…God requires an account of what is past” (Ecclesiastes 3:15). At the end of the year we turn with eagerness to all that God has for the future, and yet anxiety is apt to arise when we remember our yesterdays. Our present enjoyment of God’s grace tends to be lessened by the…
