Can I Trust You, Lord?

Surprising Intimacy

I closed my eyes and settled into the silence. It started with a gentle kiss, a warm caress on my shoulder, then a more forceful embrace. The room in my mind was dimmed with red light symbolizing the perfect passion of Christ’s love for me (The same red light the enemy has stolen and perverted.). I thought of the Song of Songs and understood. The intimacy is remarkably blush-worthy. Jesus’ love excites His promise in me that I will be healed. This love of the Lord is difficult for me to imagine and receive. Growing up I trusted the adults in my life and intimacy was defiled. I didn’t know how much intimacy draws people together in reciprocal trust and care.

The truth is that people don’t trust God because they don’t trust people.

We’ve all trusted someone and have been let down. It’s inevitable that trust will fail on some level at some point in our relationships. We can expect to be disappointed because people are fallible. People will fall short of our expectations, especially if our expectations are too high, miscommunicated, or unreasonable. It makes sense that we’d have a hard time trusting again after we’ve been hurt. When we’ve been hurt over and over, trusting others becomes difficult. Which makes trusting God difficult too.

When we’ve trusted and been hurt, we can give people grace and forgiveness to maintain relationships. God does the same thing with us — He forgives us and gives us grace abundantly. God understands that we have a hard time trusting and He seeks our hearts anyway.

God’s compassionate agape love for us goes far beyond what we can ever imagine. God is trustworthy to say and do the very best for us. We can trust Him. God does not lie, so we can believe what He tells us in Scripture. God leads us in Proverbs 3:5–6, TPT saying, “Trust in the Lord completely and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go.”

Trusting God is an important foundation of our relationship with Him. If we don’t trust God, we will not easily enter our Secret Place. We must find the ability to trust Him to begin healing and growing in our relationship with Christ. We need to trust God and be receptive to receiving all He has for us.

Not Trusting is Not an Option

Without trust in God, we stay immature, lukewarm, broken, and fractured. We miss what is happening in the Body of Christ. Holding onto a lack of trust in God builds anger and resentment. Life becomes joyless, unfruitful, and stuck in cycles of destruction. Without trusting God, we stay the same, unchanged, with broken relationships, no purpose or vision, toxic, without identity, unsafe, and estranged from supernatural connection with Him. We suffer, remain discouraged, hopeless, scared, alone, and feel abandoned.

The truth is that when we trust God, He will draw us out of all the destruction caused by our sin and rebellion. We are in sin and rebellion when we don’t trust God because we are rejecting Him and all He has for us. God wants us to be free, whole, and healthy. He wants us to see the victory we’ve been offered through Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. God wants to permanently heal us, save us, and help us to know our identity in Him. With trust in God, we can find freedom in our Secret Place.

Trust Comes with Hope

God made us with a specific calling, purpose, and destiny we can only fulfill in our relationship with Him. Let’s receive more of God for our healing and to fulfill our destiny. Let’s live in our victory. Let’s bring our lack of trust and all our other cares to Him. Let’s surrender everything, even our lives to Him. It may be hard at first, and it may be a process, but we can find God our Secret Place. We can connect with Jesus deeply and enter His holy ground to receive everything He has prepared for us.

Everything we are looking for is waiting for us in our Secret Place. The desires of our hearts can be made manifest as we spend time with God. The exhilaration of freedom awaits us. Knowledge and understanding find us there. There’s more to the Secret Place than we can understand.

God Doesn’t Want a Middle Man

He Wants You

Let’s take a look at a few items related to our personal relationship with God and the covenant, and religion we now experience. In Covenant we are truly lovers and followers of Jesus Christ by the Word that is the Word of the Lord. In Religiousness we trap ourselves and we take our eyes off Jesus, like Peter walking on the water.

Consider the table below:

In CovenantIn Religiousness
God talks directly to you.

John 10:27-28
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
We give ministers authority to talk to God for us.

Exodus 20:18-21

Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off. Then they said to Moses, “You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.”
Jesus paid the price for us.

Galatians 3:13-15
 Christ paid the price to free us from the curse that the laws in Moses’ Teachings bring by becoming cursed instead of us. Scripture says, “Everyone who is hung on a tree is cursed.”  Christ paid the price so that the blessing promised to Abraham would come to all the people of the world through Jesus Christ and we would receive the promised Spirit through faith.
We pay penance by doing works for God.

Ephesians 2:8-9 

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
We have freedom in every area of our lives.

2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
Man-made rules, laws, and behaviors are followed.

Romans 7:6 
But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.
Everything we are blessed with is freely given.

Matthew 10:8

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
We have to earn degrees and certificates to be
successful and approved.


Matthew 23;1-5
Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to be seen by men.
God is always faithful to us.

1 Corinthians 1:9 
God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. God’s faithfulness calls us into relationship, into a family where. We can experience love and growth together.
Man will fail us.

Psalm 118:8
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.

Word for Today/Vision

I see the Hem of His garment gracing the earth. Slowly He moves to touch the hearts of men. He will move it where the people want Him. Who are hungry.

For they cry out to receive His presence. 

The people will receive what they can handle.

His presence responds to the Fear of the Lord, awe and reverance. 

The wind of His garment moves His Glory from place to place. 

He will never be rivaled.

His power never seen before.

His Glory indescribable.

He will bring His marvelous light to the nations and expose the darkness.

Every last crevice it can hide in.

We will see His hand in everything. 

And every new thing.

He will oversee the nations with His newness and restorative Glory.

The old is dead and gone and passed away.

Behold HIM.

Behold the NEW THING.

The New Normal

The shift we were waiting for has happened, so it’s time for us to transition with God’s heart and Holy Spirit’s guidance into this new era — which is often a church without four walls. We are moving with God as we gather knowledge and understanding together with you. Our hope is to help you move into the new era, to confirm what God is already telling you, and for us to co-labor together for our advancement in God’s Kingdom.

We are changing our name from Hardwired for Life to represent God’s heart in a new way. We felt our names were the most personal, relational, and intimate way to connect with you, so Just Sharon & Jana it is. Afterall, God is the God of personal demonstration and action. He leads by example and so should we.

We would like to share our words in honest and transparent ways. We want to show you how God is present in our everyday lives. We plan to share the wonders and the mess — mistakes and all.

So, please like, comment, and share what God is doing in your life. We are in this together.

With Faith, Hope & Love,

Sharon & Jana

Lies We Believe

Twisting the Truth

Satan is the father of lies. John 8:44, TPT reads, “You are the offspring of your father, the devil, and you serve your father very well, passionately carrying out his desires. He’s been a murderer right from the start! He never stood with the One who is the true Prince, for he’s full of nothing but lies — lying is his native tongue. He is a master of deception and the father of lies!” A lie is defined as “an intentionally false statement.” One of the most substantial deceptions the devil pulls is to use the truth to embed his lies. He buries lies inside of truths, so we miss them. Some say he uses a 90/10 tactic, where 90 percent of what is said is truth and 10 percent is a lie. Satan is far more deceitful than we can imagine.

Satan works to twist the truth about God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit in order to keep us away from salvation and intimate relationship with them. He has been doing this for generations going back to Adam and Eve. He attacks us spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. To take it a step further, he teaches us to attack ourselves. We have become proficient at various forms of self-sabotage thanks to his efforts.

Satan with our permission, consciously or unconsciously, has infiltrated a multitude of areas in our lives. We have agreed with him in twisting the truth, and we are suffering the consequences. Jesus said in John 8:32, TPT, “For if you embrace the truth, it will release more freedom into your lives.” We usually know this verse as, “The truth shall set you free” from the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. This verse is huge. When we seek out the truth, the lies fall away without manifesting in our lives.

We must focus on truth. The verse above doesn’t say “embrace the lies” it says to “embrace the truth.” If we concentrate on the lies, we are setting ourselves up for failure. We are giving ourselves thoughts that are negative seeds that will grow. Scripture says we reap what we sow, so it’s important to sow positivity in the present moment. Being positive in the now moment creates a positive future. Fixate on truth. Read Scripture to understand what the truth really is and seek the freedom it promises.

Freedom is only necessary when there’s bondage in our lives through sin and death. And it’s safe to say that we all need more freedom. Why sin and death? Because sin is anything that is disobedient, malevolent, evil, unjust, unrighteous, unholy, etc. And the Bible is clear about sin leading only to death. Death is the last thing that Jesus conquered by His own death and resurrection (Romans 8:34).

There are many ways that we are enslaved emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Emotionally refers to feelings that are fleeting and not who we are, and mentally refers to our thoughts and thinking processes. Physically we are captive through illness, disease, stress, anxiety, and the like.

Spiritual bondage refers to our spirit, and its interaction with the Spirit of God, and with other spiritual beings in the spiritual realm.

Below is a tiny list of the ways we can be in bondage to sin and death in our lives. They can refer to lack in all things, not just with finances, self-image, relationships, or other areas of our lives. They can attract negativity and abuse in one or more ways. They can be inflicted upon us by the devil, ourselves, or others. They can be our personality and/or character flaws or shortcomings. Wherever they originate, they are destructive and dangerous, rather than lifegiving and wholesome. Spend some time researching these issues for a better understanding of what they mean to our salvation.

  • Poverty Mentality
  • Victim Mentality
  • Rejection
  • Abandonment
  • Fear of Intimacy
  • Worthiness
  • Illness & Disease
  • Prideful/Egotistic
  • Envy/Jealousy
  • Lack of Identity
  • Low Self-Esteem/Image
  • Vengeful
  • Generational Sin/Curses
  • Dishonesty
  • Abuse of Any Kind
  • Disobedience
  • Ambivalence
  • Fear of Man

A few of the greatest sin symptoms are fear, pain, shame, and guilt. It doesn’t matter whether the attack is coming from someone or something else, or it’s coming from self, these are detrimental to living life to the fullest. When we sin, and we have a conscience, we begin to feel emotional pain, shame, and guilt. We know all too well how to shame ourselves and feel guilty for what we’ve done. This causes emotional pain that can become physical pain. This is how we contribute to making ourselves sick. And it all starts with fear.

Fear is an insidious thing that the devil has taught humans to trust ever since Eve took a bite of that fruit. She was tempted by allowing herself to be convinced that she wasn’t good enough or worthy to eat fruit from that tree. She became afraid she wasn’t enough, and that God was keeping something from her. Today, many generations later, that fear is still present in us. The world reminds us of this on a daily basis.

We are affected by fear so much that we have lost our innocence and childlike ability to trust God. We entertain doubt and unbelief as a result, which runs rampant in our societies and cultures. Our movies are more violent, sex is more casual and overt, and language is more disrespectful. These forms of debauchery are only a few examples of life’s current state of debauchery. This is why it’s so much more crucial that we rise above the darkness and become childlike again. Matthew 18:3, AMP reads, “…and said, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless you repent [that is, change your inner self — your old way of thinking, live changed lives] and become like children [trusting, humble, and forgiving], you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

There are many areas of life that are in dire need of restoration to innocence. We as Believers have a responsibility to break through the lies and build a better world for our children.

There’s a school of thought out there called the Seven Mountains, or the Seven Mountain Mandate originally written about in Lance Wallnau and Bill Johnson’s book titled, Invading Babylon: The 7 Mountain Mandate, 2013. There is some controversy surrounding the topic, and I don’t want to go into why here. You can research that on your own. I only mention it to say that the seven mountains or categories of society and culture make a good list to follow for prayer, blessings, meditation, and finding our purpose.

The Seven Mountains are:

  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Education
  • Family
  • Government
  • Business
  • Media
  • Religion

Knowing which “mountain” we are called to is important. Yours may be a bit different than what is listed here and over time it will get more specialized. The key is knowing the area of society you are called to influence. And maybe you are called to more than one area.

The bottom line is that the devil’s lies block the truth of who we are, our healing, and our ability to grow, change, and mature. Lies block our blessings, which we already have been given. Many of God’s promises in the Bible are written in a past tense form. God’s promises have already happened in Heaven; they’ve been given to us already. It’s our job to remember to receive His promises here on earth. We are to pray God’s will be done on earth as it is in Heaven (Matthew 6:10). Sometimes it can be a struggle to receive from God because we are in need of further healing.

Fighting for Freedom

We have victory with Jesus, so why do we still struggle? Upon salvation, we are born again with Christ in the middle of a raging spiritual war. We must work through battles to find our personal victory and freedom. The battlefield is in the mind. It starts with our thoughts which turn into beliefs and if we believe lies, we lose battles.

One way to win battles is to identify the problem and find solutions by asking ourselves important questions. Try this five-step process to find out how to win battles:

  1. Identify the problem (write as much as you need to).
  2. What is the lie or are the lies in this problem?
  3. What is the truth based on God’s Word?
  4. What are some solutions?
  5. Then get some counsel via Scripture, pastors, counselors, and/or mature friends.

Here’s how it looks in a simple grid I developed with an example:


Excerpt from Jana’s book called, “Hardwired to Trust God: And Exploring Trust in Ourselves & Others.”

Removing Blocks of Healing

Identify Your Blocks

Photo by Brands&People on Unsplash

Knowing what blocks to healing we have in our lives is important. We must know what we need before we can begin healing. It takes introspection and a strong sense of self to discover our fractured parts. Introspection takes courage. We must be brave and honest with ourselves about our character behaviors, shortcomings, and flaws. Knowing ourselves honestly and intimately will lead us into understanding our fractured parts.

We can identify our fractured parts by journaling, talking to a professional therapist, and asking a trusted friend. But our first path is always Jesus. Jesus and Holy Spirit should be our first “go-to” Helpers when it comes to removing blocks to healing that we have in our lives. They know exactly what we are going through and what we need to be healed.

We must be able to hear the Lord and be sensitive and discerning of the Spirit to understand how to move forward. Below are several ways to get started on the process of healing.

Practice Self-Care

Preparing for healing takes self-care. When we care for ourselves, we are honoring the temple that God gave us to steward in this life. Self-care is for the mind, spirit, and soul as much as for the body. We must care for our whole person, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When we are out of balance with our self-care we are out of balance with God. One of the best ways we can practice self-care is with love.

God lives in us when we love, 1 John 4:12–13, TPT reads:

“…But if we love one another, God makes his permanent home in us, and we make our permanent home in him, and his love is brought to its full expression in us. And he has given us his Spirit within us so that we can have the assurance that he lives in us and that we live in him.”

With God in us, we are able to heal. We must love ourselves in order to fully love God and others. Loving ourselves takes some work when we’ve been unloved as a child, rejected, abandoned, or otherwise traumatized. Any form of child abuse will leave us unloving as adults. We become unloving because we feel unacceptable and unworthy of love. The truth is that we are worthy of love. God can show us how to love again through trust and patience. We must be willing to leave pain and suffering behind to love again.

While in pain and/or suffering, we are vulnerable to new traumatic events as well as re-experiencing past events. It’s a catch-22 that being ready to heal makes us vulnerable to more traumatic events and to re-experiencing traumatic memories or flashbacks of trauma. The very same vulnerability can work for us to heal but can also leave us open to new pain. Being vulnerable takes courage and hope that in the process of healing, even when we feel more pain, the hope can bring us through to the other end of it all.

Courage and hope lead us in the process of self-care and healing. The more we love ourselves, the more prepared we will be for our healing. We must find hope in our circumstances. There’s a lot of hope in the Bible. There’s hope in Jesus as the Lord of our lives. Jesus gets started on healing us from the second we believe in Him. And Jesus always finishes what He started. Jesus is the Finisher of our faith.

Use Love & Kindness

Satan and his minions hate to love, so love is what we must do. When we are down, depressed, anxious, or in any other bad place, we must love God, ourselves, and others. When we are not doing well and we are kind to others, love increases and the darkness leaves. There’s instant freedom for us as we practice love for ourselves and one another.

Practicing love for ourselves and others sows love into our whole being. Remember, according to Scripture, we reap what we sow (See Galatians 6:7). If we want more love and kindness in our lives, we must love and be kind. Being loving and positive will prepare us for healing. When we are positive, we are more open to processing painful events and memories. No matter what we sow, we must keep our eyes on the Lord.

Focus on The Lord

We must keep our eyes on Jesus and everything He is teaching us as we prepare to heal. Peter learned above all the apostles to keep his attention on Jesus. Once, Peter courageously walked on water with Jesus. Here’s what happened: Peter took his eyes off the Lord, began thinking on his own, and feeling frightened he sank. In Matthew 14:28–31, TPT, we read:

“Peter shouted out, ‘Lord, if it’s really you, then have me join you on the water!’ ‘Come and join me,’ Jesus replied. So, Peter stepped out onto the water and began to walk toward Jesus. But when he realized how high the waves were, he became frightened and started to sink. ‘Save me, Lord!’ he cried out. Jesus immediately stretched out his hand and lifted him up and said, ‘What little faith you have! Why would you let doubt win?’”

Peter doubted what he was doing and sank. We learn here that doubt is one of the biggest ways we can turn away from the Lord. When we aren’t focusing on Jesus, it focuses us on the world and our flesh. Yet, Jesus is never far away from us. Listen to what Mark 1:15, New King James Version (NKJV) says:

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

Jesus and the Kingdom of God are never farther away from us than our own hand at arm’s length. We are the ones that keep Jesus away, but He’s always near to us. Jesus is always ready for our repentance and reconciliation. Jesus wants to heal us, but we have to let Him into our lives in order to do so.

Pray & Prepare for Healing

Pray for healing. We can prepare for our healing by continually praying for ourselves. Praying for ourselves readies us for healing by opening up our will to align with God’s will for us to be healed. When we pray for ourselves, we are asking the Lord in intervene on our behalf for healing. It’s advisable to pray as much as possible until the healing has happened, or we’ve been set free. Praying in the Spirit, in our angelic tongues, helps heal us even more.

When we pray in tongues, we are praying in a language unknown to us, unless we are given the interpretation. According to Galatians 5:16, we are to walk in the Spirit, rather than the flesh. In order to walk in Spirit, we must be set free from the enemy of God. Praying in tongues can free us from what we don’t know we need freedom from. Praying in tongues is a proactive approach to healing. Tongues give us a direct connection to God. If you don’t have tongues, just ask Holy Spirit to give them to you and/or get help from a Spirit-filled friend.

Use the prayer model below or pray on your own:

Lord God, I repent for having blocks to healing in my life. In preparation for my healing, I repent for allowing false idols to enter the life that has kept You away from me. I repent for allowing false idols to sit in Your position in my life as the One True God through Christ Jesus. I repent for ____________ (name as many false idols as you feel you have used, such as a person, career, possessions, etc.). God remove these false idols from me. Lord, remove from me all of the ungodly false idol gatekeepers I have put in place. Wash me cleanly in Your blood. Cover me and fill me in the areas I have fallen. My desire is to be healed fully mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
