From Liam, 14…
When I met with Catherine, I was feeling an overwhelming amount of stress regarding my homework, school work and my school environment.
We asked God where this stress came from. I was brought back to a time in second grade when I was having trouble doing my math assignment. My teacher was yelling at a student for messing up on a math problem. I felt scared and nervous because I didn’t want that to happen to me. I felt sad for the kid. The school environment was very angry. Teachers used shame to control students’ behavior. It was not fun.
We asked Jesus where he was during that time. I saw him outside the classroom door. I asked him to come and help me. He came to me and helped me with my work. It felt really good to have him there with me, and I didn’t have any more stress or fear.
I forgave my teachers and the school staff for introducing stress into the environment. I also gave Jesus all the competition, distractions, anger and fear I was feeling at that school. In exchange, he gave me a huge box full of appreciation, freedom, joy and laughter.
I asked Jesus if there was anything else he wanted to tell me. He said, “With me, you will never have to feel anxiety, stress, fear or pain ever again.”
There is no word to describe how good I feel.
