My Challenge

“The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.” Psalms 138:8

I was born four months early in 1980 at Grady Hospital in Atlanta. After my birth, my mother experienced a mental breakdown and was admitted to a mental hospital. She was grieving the loss of her mother five years prior, and now having a premature baby was too much. My birth father stayed in trouble and was not there for me. So for the first four months of my life, I was alone. That incubator was my home, and I was in the custody of the state of Georgia until my mother showed that she could care for me. Studies show that in newborn babies, neurons develop in the brain from a mother’s touch and embrace, however, because she wasn’t there, those neuron connections weren’t made, and my brain suffered. Although I have grown into an adult woman, the amygdala part of the brain whose primary role and function are the processing of memory, decision-making, and emotional responses (including fear, anxiety, and aggression) is underdeveloped in me. This underdevelopment has caused emotional and mental dysfunction that has impacted every part of my personal life.

These 40 years of my life have been a struggle like you would not believe. I’ve lost relationships and made some mistakes, but God continues to help me know and understand His love and what it means to be His daughter. With therapy and the right information, I am learning how to develop areas that have been left underdeveloped for so long. I am learning skills and tools, and choosing not to sit around, feeling sorry for myself. As I work through these challenges, I ask for your prayers, and thank you advance. As Langston Hughes said, “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.” It hasn’t been easy, but I am committed to you and to continue with this beautiful ministry God has given to me. I honestly believe I need this just as much as you do.

For those who are called by God to do a work, but struggle with emotional and mental health issues, I know your pain. It’s a handicap that no one sees but you and those you let in. But God. When God called you, He knew everything you would face. He knew every issue, every challenge, and every generational obstacle. He still chose you. He still called you. He still wants you. Faithful is He who called you; He will do it. Not you. Not me. He will do it through you. All He’s ever wanted from us is our willingness to let Him work in and through us. We are His beloved daughters, and He is our Father and nothing and no one can ever change that.

Prayer: Father, I plead the blood of Jesus over my mind and the minds of those reading this devotional. Whatever area in our brain that is not working as it should, I ask that you help those areas to receive strength and healing. Lord, you promised that you would perfect that which concerns us. We stand on that promise. I pray that you direct us to the right kind of treatment and the best medical situation that is most helpful. We trust you, Father. You are our help, and under the protection of your wings, we rejoice. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 1 Thessalonians 5:24; Psalm 63:7)

    1. Thank you for sharing,
      This is such a blessing .
      A ray of light in the darkness I have been in.
      I too struggle, lately I have had a war in my mind with anxiety ocd,intrusive thoughts, anger ,
      This post gives me a glimmer of hope, for the past 4 months I have questioned everything I believed,lost my faith.
      Your post gives me hope God hasn’t rejected me, that I can be saved or haven’t lost my salvation.

  2. Amen and Amen. Blessed be the name of the Lord in the highest. The Lord who looks beyond our faults and incapabilities and uses us anyway. I thank him for your life sister. The Lord is and has been your strength. Amen.

  3. I am praying for you and thank you for your transparency. It confirms for me that the Lord can use us to accomplish great things in His name while He brings us through the process of healing. Your devotional has been a great blessing to me just when I needed it and I’m sure you have blessed countless others in the same way

  4. This bless me so much Kesha. I totally wish I could talk to you offline personally. This blessed me so much because I’ve been dealing with my newly diagnosed ADHD, but have been battling the effects ever since childhood, just didn’t know what it was until recently. Mental and emotional disorder do affect every part of your life, i mean every single part. Your testimony today was so encouraging because most days I feel like I will never move past this. But my God, my Lord in heaven. This blessed me because I read your devotionals daily and have blessed me so much and stretched me to keep going. So I know that if he can use someone else with similar situation, he can use me and bless me to. This was the hope I need to move forward today.

    1. I’m also struggling with ADHD, my therapist is saying it’s fight or flight.

      Kesha, praises to YAHUAH for your transparency.

  5. Thank you Woman of God for your testimony. I understand just how you feel, I pray that you are healed and that it be completely present right now in you in the Name of Jesus, Amen.

  6. Thank you for your transparency, for the illustration of your spiritual strength (DOTK) and finite weakness (your challenge) which reflects this Christian journey. GOD has graced you for this kingdom assignment and being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but GOD will deliver us from them all,
    For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory! 💜

    1. I could not have said it better sis Letitia..its as if my own sentiments came through your post. I agree.
      Sis Kesha i thank God for you and the work He has placed in your hands.
      Thank you for sharing.

  7. Amen, God already knew who He created you and us to be before we entertained our mother’s womb. So his purpose for your life as well as ours, he will see it through in Jesus Name. We hold on to his unchanging hand. Bless you sister in Christ.

  8. Thank You for sharing. You have blessed me tremendously with you openness. I touch and agree in the Spirit for what you are believing God for concerning your life. It is so by faith and by faith so it is.
    God bless you 🙏❤️

  9. Amen Thank you Sis.Keasha for sharing your devotional to us Lord again I say help us all strength our minds and heart cover us all and the name of Jesus Christ Amen 🙏🏽❤

  10. I totally understand, this had also happened to me. I was left in a crib for the first 2 years of my life, taken out to be fed an changed. My father was away and my mother had a toddler and an infant to care for. I’ve always struggled with insecurity and anxiety. Thank you for sharing and for the prayer. Love ya sister.

  11. God has a purpose for each of us. You are empowered and fall short of nothing. God knows how to use your ministry heart and you fall in step. You are an exceptional kingdom witness. Thank you for sharing you and all that you are. We are blessed.

  12. THANK You for sharing this with us. Because it truly Bless me to hear your truth. Because when I was born the Doctor told my Mother that I was not going to Live. He told her if I do live I would have learning disabilities which I do have. I have lived all my life in shame of it but nobody knew of it but me and GOD. HE got me through it and still get me through it. HE showed me how to accept what I was going through and how to live with it without being shame of what and who I am. HE spell for me HE read for me and HE do the math for me that I can’t do on my own. HE has not allowed this to STOP me from doing what HE has Called Me to do for HIS GLORY!!!AMEN GOD has given me three Beautiful Children and Four Beautiful Grandchildren that is so Smart and for that I am so Grateful that they don’t have to experience something that I had to EXPERIENCE!!! AMEN I Love You and I THANK GOD for you My Dear Sister!!!

  13. Mental health is important. People focus so much on physical health that sometimes mental health takes a backseat and once we focus on it & we decide to it may be out of hand and control and then comes the diagnosis of depression , bipolar, etc. Im guilty of this myself focus on the outside appearance vs the inside but figured working on both is better.!working out and listen to a preacher or worship focus my mind on the goodness of God vs my issues. A song will play that will help me and I ask God to renew my mind and mend my heart. Depression is not something I want to experience again. I was not diagnosed but I know what I felt and how. I have my days but Im glad God has kept me. I couldve took that road again which is dark and lonely. I isolate myself , dont eat and dwell on the bad vs the good. God has kept me from traveling that road and im thankful. Times do get hard but working on the physical you should be combined with mental work as well. Im a work in progress but Im glad he has kept me in my right mind and I learn to Let Go and Let God. I remember that song Marvin Sapp song I couldnt even fall asleep there was so much on my mind ….. i found peace in God!

  14. Who God calls He eqips…it doesn’t matter what we have or don’t have. He is faithful and awesome as a Father and provider of both physical and spiritual blessings.
    Thanks again sis Kesha for allowing the Spirit to use you mightily and opening up yourself for our benefit.
    God you magnificent words are not enough
    We praise You for working on, in, and through us. Continue to strengthen and bless sis Kesha and this DOTK family, in Jesus name. Amen

    Have s marvelous Monday ladies…much much love!❤❤

  15. I have been reading your Devotionals for around three years and I have never had the courage to write a comment but today I was so compelled and moved by your testimony that I had the courage to write because I have to let you know how your ministry has blessed me and touched my spirit. It has lifted me up in very difficult times, I have also struggled with some health issues in my body and your writings had given me strength.. I am a professor and in many occasions I have forward your messages to my adult students when the Holy Spirit has prompted me to do so. I declare a Word of wholeness over you and may the Lotd continue using you for his Glory,

  16. 🦋 Mrs. Trippett God knew you before you were in your mother’s womb. Honey you were no surprise to him. You are precious in his sight. Cause Look what he has done in you and through you and your Ministry. DOTK😃. He has developed in you a strong women and giving you The Mind of Christ and skills to continue your purpose here on earth. Your Devotionals have inspired me a lot I even introduce ladies to your Daughter’s Of The 👑 king. I’m very proud of you Mrs.Trippett. Because you are a Fighter and you are still here. God is for you and with you to continue your journey with him. So keep on keeping on. You are a Deer on Hines feet. An Awsome inspiring challenging book to read. God is strengthening you. And you are a Living Testamony to me and all women, Father I ask that you continue to help Mrs. Trippett to continue her journey in Life and DOTK. In Jesus name. Amen (Philippians 4:13)🦋

  17. Thank you Keisha for your openness. I too have been diagnosed with a brain disorder which only my household knows about. I am reluctant to share it with others. I am a child of the most high God and I leave it in his care. You have opened my eyes this morning and I am sure my experience might be of help to someone God loves you and so does all of you readers.

  18. You are in my prayers Kesha. Thank you for your daily devotionals. I always look forward to reading what God has to say to me and speak to my life through you
    God has been using you so long in a mighty way. When you were in that incubator, you were never alone. God was holding your tiny hands the entire time, and He has never let you go, and He never will. You are a blessing in my life sister. I pray total healing over your mind and the strength that only comes from the Lord to keep going. I love you sister ! I thank the Lord for you.

  19. Thank you so much for being transparent. I am 48. It’s taken me years to work through rejection, depression, hopelessness and despair. And most of those years were being lived as a Christian. I’ve heard everything from “just choose to be happy” to “you have to know your identity in Christ and you won’t feel that way”. Both of those things are great, but not much good to the person who doesn’t choose depression and doesn’t understand how to get out of it or why it’s there. I will say that for me, truly growing in my relationship with Christ and digging deeper into the word everyday and making it a priority are what began to bring me out of these feelings. I still have my days but I’m not who I used to be, praise God. I truly believe that this side of Heaven, things will never be perfect. We will never achieve complete healing in our bodies and minds because we live in a broken, sinful world. I’m praying for you and for God to walk you through this journey and bring you out stronger on the other side. Blessings to you and thank you for these devotions that have touched my heart and been just what I needed to hear on more than one occasion. Hugs and prayers to you.

  20. Thank you for your testimony. May God keep you and continue to heal you. And as in your prayer, may we all be healed. Father God in Heaven, please strengthen our brain Lord. In Jesus’name, Amen. 🙏🏾

  21. Good Morning To All.
    I would like to thank God almighty first for being such a profound God. I also would like to thank this sister for her courage on speaking out about her thorn, and how she was used in an articulate way to bring about her testimony. I will not elaborate much on how much I am inspired by this reading, but I will say it is a whole lot of food for thought; and it has blessed me with awareness of my own personal challenges. God bless you all. Sis. I will be praying for you.. Have a blessed day.

  22. So touched by this. Ive been experiencing what seems like mental warfare. Where whenever I pray it feels like something is moving against my mind…..I struggle to submit my mind to God after going through psychological abuse. Ive struggled to control my thoughts…what a lie. I recognize it. But now I feel cut off from God. Like he’s given me over. I stayed in my head 24/7. I struggled to get back in right alignment with Him because the relationship threw me for a loop. I was afraid to trust God. Evil thoughts seemed to be trapped in my head. I wish I could start my journey over with God

    1. You’re not alone sis. I will be praying for you, pray for me as well. I’m struggling with the same issue.

  23. Thank you Kesha for your transparency and willing to share with us! We are all “beautifully broken” in some way – but that is what brings the Glory of God’s grace into our lives! God bless all my sisters today who struggle with these issues. God is sovereign and He lives us so! ❤️🙏🏼

  24. Thank you for opening up that part of your life and sharing! Many of us struggle with deep emotional scars from our childhood. Sadly, the traditional church approach is to stay quiet as honoring our parents. But silence doesn’t heal the problem. It is the act of bringing our pain to light that begins the healing. You are a strong woman of God. Blessings to you today.

  25. Thank you so much foe sharing.That was so brave to do..For myself it was the opposite.My daddy died when I was 10 months and Mama was left with 7 little children to care for..Yrs later she remarried to a man who I used to think he was the devil himself…Abusive to my Mama brothers sisters.My Mama felt trapped for yrs..I am now 47yrs old.My Mama was the one who recently passed away from Covid….My Step Father got killed in front of me and to me I was more grateful to the man who killed him bc I knew then My Mama and siblings were finally free…But we werent my mind was so messed up from all I grew up seeing believing that was love my relationships were the same abuse…Never knew the true love of a Father….My Mama since then gabe her life to the Lord and never turned back…But my relationship with my Heavenly Father…Was never real to me…I knew God was real but never understood the intimacy of it….My life was spares so many times literally should be dead and I often wondered how in the world did I survive…Till I started hearing about His grace His mercy ….He spared me for a reason and its been yrs for me to truly see why…But IK now who my true Father is…Amen Thank You again Kesha for sharing..You are truly an inspiration in my life…Blessings your way Sister!!!

  26. Thank you so much for your honesty, your courage and most of all your MINISTRY! Jesus has worked through you mightily, with so much love, wisdom, understanding and encouragement! Your devotional is the most meaningful to me, and blesses me EVERY TIME! GOD bless you, ALWAYS!!

  27. Thank you so much for sharing! This really resonated with me. 2 years ago I had twins who were also born 4 months early and I had lost my mum 3 years prior to their birth. The past two years have been a rollercoaster navigating all the challenges associated with their prematurity and the emotional and spiritual trauma that has had on my spouse and I. But we continue to thank God for his faithfulness. Today he has proven once again that he hears me through your testimony. So thank you

  28. God bless you and your family Kesha, praise the Lord that I’m not the only one who needed this exact prayer at this exact time…. Mental health is something I’m working with as well and I pray blessings over all who need help in that field. In Jesus name

  29. I cannot thank you enough for sharing this message! God knows this was indeed an on time message for me and so many others ❤️
    Thank you for being obedient to the word of God. Your courage to share, gives others hope.

  30. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you Sis for sharing this..

    Your devotions have been an absolute blessing in my life – so anointed. But to read today of your struggles and yet you rise; yet you push through your challenges and allow God to use you has brought me to tears, as I marvel at your love and obedience to God.

    I am yet again encouraged to press on in spite of my emotional challenges and intermittent moments of fear and anxiety.

    Do continue to press on my Sister, using the tools of therapy and faith, prayer, and trust in the power of God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit that dwells inside of you.

    Jesus overcome the cross, rose from the grave and in those knowledge, we can keep in pushing through knowing that as Christ has overcome the darkness, so will we as we stand in His name.

    Blessings, peace, strength and comfort to you in abundance! 💚🙏🏾🙏🏾

  31. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me 💪🏽 and I do it for Your Glory🙌🏽 Thank you, my Sister in Christ, I truly understand. I deal with issues like this. Every day is a struggle, but I am totally depending on God🙌🏽😢🙏🏽 I am a work in progress but I am still pressing on..Because greater is he that is in the Lord, than he that is in the world 🙌🏽😢 Whatever God will is for my life, I am willing and able to do it. Trusting God totally 🙌🏽🙏🏽😢 I SURRENDER MY ALL UNTO YOU GOD 🙌🏽 Amen and AMEN 🙌🏽 ❤️🙏🏽❤️

  32. Thank you Sister Kesha for your transparency.
    I was adopted at six months old, not ever getting the chance to meet my biological parents. When I became an adult, I did some research and found my mom, only for her to deny that she ever had me.
    So sometimes I wonder does this have an effect on me in this day and age.
    I tend to sometimes feel rejected by others even when they seem so welcoming. It finally donned on me one day, I may be suffering with this because I was rejected by my parents from the beginning.
    OH BUT GOD… He has shown me that He loved me from the very beginning. I didn’t have to go from place to place waiting to be adopted, I was chosen by a couple that was 21 yrs. of age at the time that did the best that they could.
    I am 52 years old now and so grateful that my second or should I say my first adoption was being adopted into the family of God. (If your mother and father leaves you, God is there to fill in the gap.)
    Many blessings to you Sister Kesha, as each day passes, I Pray that you will become stronger and stronger… For you are an OVERCOMER❣️

  33. Keisha, What a blessing you are. I have yet to meet you but I have been blessed so much by your ministry to the daughters of our King. I just want to thank you for not allowing your struggles to hinder the special gifts our Heavenly Father has given you to use for His glory and our daily encourement. God uses you Sister in mighty ways but most importantly He loves you and although your mother could not be there to hold you God was holding onto you t be when time and still is. God Bless you.

  34. Thank you for freely giving of yourself. I truly appreciate the Devotionals and their transparency. It brings a relevant word to our lives and for that I am thankful. I pray that God continues to fill your cup, overflowing and running over, just as you pour out/into us. Thank you again.

  35. Kesha, God chose the crazy things of this world to confuse the wise; and God chose the weak things of this world to confuse the strong;

    1 Corinthians 1:27

    Your words have been a blessing in my life, so please today let me give to you a word. I don’t know you personally but i feel in eternal communion with you. As I read your account in this text, I was moved by your words, because I am going through a challenging moment where God is healing many wounds and emotional dysfunctions in me. We have no guilt or choice about the attitude of our biological parents, but we know that our heavenly father has a purpose in life and has promised to cross all deserts with us. We know that in eternity we will have a glorified and healed body, but so while we are in this world that our challenges are so that the name of the Lord may be glorified and that through our history we can help other sisters to rise up! Is wonderful to see the Holy Spirit at work in you and through you take your words to many sisters who are looking for an answer. I believe that all this happened so that the name of Jesus would be glorified in your life! He planted his story and shaped his life for His glory! May you be healed in the name of Jesus and continue to glirify God throughout your life. I’ll be praying for you. Your sister from Brazil, Barbara Viana.

  36. I thank you and Bless you sister, for your bravery, transparency, and your Love for our Father. I share so many of the struggles you spoke on. But God. “But God”. You are so right. Thank you for the work you continue to do, despite these challenges. He is faithful, let us never forget. His strength is made perfect in our weakness.

  37. I was born to a nineteen yr old
    Alcoholic who didn’t want me her first boyfriend molested me
    From age 3-12 she left me with anyone and everyone I was raped. This man she was with was married but not to her. She had 3 children by him. First on I was 5 yrs old I was left home with him day’s at a time. The second was a little girl I was 5 yrs old I loved her so much. So I was a Mom of two at 8. Until one day she was drunk and heard them call me Mom and beat me.
    And them to. Anyway my sister I dearly loved at 17 killed herself
    I had to ID her body. I was born in domestic violence Raised by domestic violence and married domestic violence. My husband passed away June 1,2011 then my children took his place. I finally left my home town and when and lived in the YWCA I felt save there. I hated my Mom most of my life. But in 2014 she started writing me don’t know how she got my address. But she was sending me all of these cards with apologies in them. Begging me to come to her. I started laughing and crying at the same time. I told her I’d have to pray and sleep on that one.
    It took me six Months. But I’ve been back with her for six yrs. She’s been my best friend. She now has congestive heart failure the second year with dementia.
    And it’s not Nancy it’s God. I love The Lord with all my heart. My mom never knew who my father was. So my Father in heaven is my real Father and Jesus is the big Brother I Always wanted. God bless your devotionals always bless my heart and soul.

  38. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. Sharing this testimony is so humbling because regardless of your struggles you are still changing lives. God is good and I can’t wait to see what He does in this journey for you. I completely understand where you are, the Lord is doing the same in my life. This is a year if restoration, He will give us wings like eagles and we will move mountains in Jesus name. We will be healed and made whole in His blood. What an amazing love He has for us. Be blessed my sister, I love you. Let’s finish strong

  39. I thank God for you opening up and sharing this with us. This really, really blessed me! I needed to read this today. WOW! Thank you Father God for perfecting that which concerns me. God continue to bless and keep you woman of God and you allow Him to minister to us through you.

  40. Jesus speaks to me through you so yes you are helping me. My mother was 19 and unmarried when she became pregnant with me and so the story went my father felt obligated to marry my mom. My father dropped out of college to take care of us – I was told my grandmother was not happy about that. I was led to believe at a very early age that I was a mistake. I carried that on my heart for years. Your devotions have taught me so much about who I am in Christ. The best message was that I was planned and ordained to do His will all along!! Thank you so much for this ministry it truly helps me every day!!

  41. Hallelujah God!!! We bless your Holy name!! Thank you for the Woman of God!!! Thanks Sister for your transparency and powerful testimony. I am in tears. For the words that I could not say, the Holy Spirit has spoken them on my behalf through you!!! God bless you, your ministry, and your family!!

  42. Thank you so much for sharing & your transparency!! Soo much confirmation that no matter what we are loved by God & if He called us He already knew everything about us!! My mother was diagnosed with bipolar & didn’t know until I was older bc she hid it very well. But it affected me bc I had to be mom at 14/15 to my younger sis & my mom. I am in counseling now bc as much as I told myself I’d never be like her, I don’t know what that looks like from a mental & emotional state

  43. I thank my HOLY FATHER for you what a testimony on the Lords mercy and the calling He has on your life. I deal with mental issues in my family. I know that my
    mind can tell me lies that sounds so tru. e that only Our Lords words can break the bondage. We are all in our Lords hands and His. Love and healing grace fills us with His Holy. Spirit who will comfort us in times of weakness. I love you Jesus..

  44. I am always so blessed and touched by your devotions! Now I see we have another connection besides our love of the Father, 1980! It would be a few years before my mom had trouble taking care of and connecting with me, but we are not alone despite our rough beginnings that year! God bless you, strengthen you and may you continue to be used by our saviour to bless others with His wisdom and yours!

  45. Thank you so much for sharing your testimony.

    I was premature too. I was left alone as well.

    As You prayed for me, I will pray for you.

    We have a sound mind. May the Lord’s peace take a hold of our thoughts daily.

    Lord You are willing able. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Blessings, Shalom and Agape.

  46. Thank you so much for your devotionals and your testimony. Everytime I read you speak to my soul and guide me and give me direction and comfort. You touch so many people through your testimony.

    I have major depression, but I find so much peace, comfort and contentment in the Lord’s promises and knowing one day we will get to Heaven and get our Heavenly bodies.

    My Mema came to me in a dream the exact time she passed away and she was in another city and I didn’t know she was passing away. What I call the Holy Spirit guided me back to sleep that morning and she came to me and had her new Heavenly body and was so beautiful and she said, Pamela, you don’t need to do drugs anymore because you have more to do with your life. I never wanted to do the drugs I had been addicted to ever again after that. I had prayed and prayed for years for God to show me a way to stop using, because I felt trapped because my dad and StepMom and all my friends used and it was a struggle for my own will power. But, God answered my prayers more than I ever could have imagined!
    I’ve ran into trouble with my major depression over the years but I always hold onto the promises that I know without a doubt are so true and I use my Bible against the ways of the enemy just by opening it up and reading His word!
    Lately, I have felt down and out. Discouraged because I am out of work going on 6 months and I am waiting to heat about a job I really want but I know I have to wait and be patient in the Lord’s purpose for my life.

    I am very inspired by your testimony and I pray you know how much it means to me and others who read your devotionals and relate to your testimony!

    May God continue to bless you! 💜💜💜🦋🦋🦋🌻🌻🌻

  47. Thank you for sharing your testimony, Sis Kesha!

    Only God know what we’ve been through and what we go through. This opens up my mind to what I’ve been through.. otherwise, I would have never known. Wow and still without the motherly talk, touch after my mother got me back at 4or5 years, I’m not only looking for love in all the wrong places, I’m still longing for my mother’s love at 63yrs and biological fathers love because she kept me from him 😭

    Please pray for me!

  48. This is amazing. Indeed God perfects that which concerns us. He is in control of every aspect of our lives and our brain is no exception. Wow I’ve been blessed. I pray for you!!

  49. Thank you for sharing that! I have been experiencing the same this season and it doesn’t feel good. I was mentally and emotionally broken not having a father in my life which lead to codependency on other men. I am now 40, divorced twice and just started to forgive and heal. This pandemic doesn’t help especially being a mother. I look forward to your devotionals which gives me hope and brings a smile to my face. I look forward to reading your words from God daily. It keeps me going. We are not alone. Us women carry a load of emotions and as we get older, it tries to find a way out. I’m also going through pre-menopausia which doesn’t help. May God give us supernatural peace that no man can give. I pray for all of you sisters. I feel you and I love you all. This too shall pass. I’m holding on to His promise.

  50. Kesha thank you for sharing. My counselor told me about your ministry a couple of years ago. You have been a blessing to me. Thank you. I also had a mother who had mental health issues. Unfortunately she never got help and was quite destructive. My father learned that she shook babies when the people of his church came to him and told him. He ended up leaving the ministry because of the problems she created. This was back in the early 60s and the world was very different. I learn about it when she taught me to shake my infant son in such a way that I wouldn’t break his neck but so he would stop crying. I was horrified and it started my journey toward health. My issues are also in the limbic system of the brain revolving around trust and fear. I read in Florence Scovel Shinn’s book that fear is faith inverted, it is faith in evil instead of good. God had blessed me with good counselors, good friends, good churches, good children, and a father who never gave up on me. Now I have a good husband as well. I am safe, loved and still working on feeling worthy. God uses your ministry to remind me when I forget or am scared and need courage. Blessings

  51. I been following you for years and this message is my new favorite. For the very first time I feel someone understand my pain and struggles. My background is trauma after trauma. Childhood sexual abuse, poverty and the likes and mental health issues etc. My pain is internal and daily its a long road. My goal is to not give up.

  53. My Challenge comments

    Woman of God, you were designed for a time such as this. I too have had some challenges in life as a young girl after having lost both parents to natural causes (at ages 6 & 10). No one can prepare you for what we must face in life but God who is rich in Mercy sustained us and so many others to use us. He uses the weak things to confound the wise, and the base things which he strategically chooses because he is God. Thank you for pressing beyond yourself to give the Oil of God to his spiritual daughters! Grace & peace be multiplied unto you my sister!

  54. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us Keisha ! God definitely used you and I felt the Holy Spirit speaking to me through your story! My daughter was born premature and is going through many of the same challenges that you are going through as an adult. God is working in and through you and I am encouraged that he will do the same for her.

  55. My dearest sister Kesha. You are a healer. Through your words, I sense the healing sap flowing through every stroke of your pen. Thank you my sister for allowing God to transform your struggles and for using the keys that freed you to help free others. The TRUTH sets us FREE!

    You are beautiful, stellar, authentic, victorious, courageous and an overcoming warrior! God’s power is manifested in weakness. Your humility is extraordinary. Thank you for showing what it looks like to throw off the cloaks of self-reliance to demonstrate that apart from Him, we can do nothing. However, with King Jesus, we can do ALL things through Him Who gives us strength! Keep soaring. Keep writing. Keep speaking. Keep healing.

    P. S. Healed people…heal people. Thank you for using the gift of writing to spread healing to all hurting women. As an act of your obedience to our beautiful Daddy, you yourself will be refreshed.

    Love you. Hugs!!! 🤗🙏🦋
