Hi Kristina, I feel like I could have written what you said word for word. In fact yesterday I added all these (tracks to my program) and I pretty much was writing almost exactly as you are today. I truly understand your pain. I'm going through so many of the emotions you are right now. I am begging to God to bring me peace.... and to stop in my self destructive ways. It's so hard and the pain is real. I'm praying for you my Sister in Christ. May God bring you a little bit of peace today, and may he open your heart to feel it. I pray for you in Jesus's name.. Amen 🙏
I cried whilst watching this!! God is so good!! ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you for sharing. I'm praying for a full recovery so you can pursue your dream. I wanted to share a miracle with you. Your struggle reminded me of a miracle that was recorded on audio of a pastor who "lost his voice" for years. While teaching God answered a prayer....
Good morning, Kristina. I too have made poor choices that can carry long-term consequences. I remember on my 29th birthday, I was so depressed I couldn't get off the couch. God's grace, however, is truly sufficient. Lamentations 3:22-23 says, "The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning." I pray you will see and feel this truth. Praying for you, friend!
Thanks, Joey! I know it wasn't really my singing, though I'm sure it didn't help! I still sing and will continue to! It's a joyful noise to the Lord...even if it sounds like a cat screaming to the rest of us. :)
I am thankful for the Spirit's influence. I pray I lean into His influence more and more!
Carolyn, if only my kids paid attention like you! lol. Thanks for sharing!
I know my wife is happy when she sings. She has a beautiful voice that brightens our spirits too!
Yes, the world is fallen. But God calls us to be salt and light. I've noticed that when we live well out of right motives, it points people to Jesus! Take heart, friend!
Thanks, Eva. I'm thankful God has a built-in "auto-tune" so when I do sing it is a sweet sound!
Thank you pastor Nat For sharing I am the same way I will love to sing but I don't have a voice either I have learned a lot God-bless you.
I feel like this post was a part of God trying to communicate something with me. I am suffering from thyroid problems, and as somebody who aspires to be on Broadway, I feel like it’s extra scary for me. The swollen gland in my neck is pushing up against my vocal cords, making the quality of my voice perish completely. I was very scared that my voice is completely damaged, and I’d never get to live my dreams. But then this video just suddenly appeared to me, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much it helped me see that singing is my gift from God. Though I am still afraid of the outcome, I’ve come to realize that God has gifted me with the ability to perform, and if it’s in his will, I will use it to glorify him in any way I can! Lord, I thank for the special gifts you have given me, and I pray that I will use those gifts to inspire people and glorify you.
I am struggling with every area of my life I think due to choices and decisions i have made but i do not know if my depression is playing a key role. I am confused and running in fear I am guessing. I am not clear as why I am where i am mentally, physically, emotionally and location wise. I have never had, as far as I remember, had all the above at once. During my bible studies, I keep reading that the more in us of God/purpose the more that comes against us. What do I do with this?
I thank God for the Spirit especially with all the negativity going on

Amen !Thank you Lord Jesus for the teaching on the Holy Spirit. Yes Holy Spirit is my teacher, comforter, healer, my guide and my strength . Thank you Pastor Nat for your encouraging words daily through 'Win the Day' podcast.
Amen, I love my sprit of God.
The Holy Spirit is my Helper. He is the 3rd person of the Trinity. He leads, directs, and guides my path into all these of God. He is my peace and He comforts me. I thank God for such a wonderful teacher, who reminds me of who I am in Christ. I thank my Lord and Savior for sending Him to help me grow more like Him. Thanks Pastor Nat for your encouraging words everyday.
Blessing to you pastor nat for your daily inspirations, because lord knows i need them at times to focus more on christ them stray into temptations, i have acquired a stronger taste of being more patient, understanting words and my respond to a comment or something negative towards myself.
I’m in awe and stand amazed that The Living God would give me the Same power of the Holy Spirit that raised Christ from the dead! The Holy Spirit indwells those who believe and have accepted Jesus as Lord- in this world we live in I pray HE will empower us to go forth and make disciples- use our giftings from Him to glorify God and the body of Christ. Thank you for this daily encouragement - it helps spur me on!
I learned that the Holy Spirit is so many things: a Helper, a Teacher, a Guide, a Friend, a Loving Part of ourselves. I learned that he has a personality and is just waiting for us to get to know him better. He's an exciting part of the Trinity!!!! 🙏💕🙏💕🙏
The Holy Spirit have giving me a lil more patience amen
The Holy Spirit prevents me from sinning but when I slip up it uses the help of an Angel to keep me in check sometimes. Hahahaha I also love to sing and can’t but I do because I think I sound so good. It still cheers people up around me and I keep it short. Thank you Lord for the extra nudge when needed. In Jesus name Amen
Thank you, Lord. Amen.
The Holy Spirit is amazing it always guides me in the correct direction with god. The Holy Spirit always allows me to know that god is with me at all times. I love the Holy Spirit
I've learnt that the Holy Spirit Is always helping me to become more like God.
In this world of unruly celebrated poor behavior it is extremely difficult to show the fruits of the spirit. This world is very ungodly and unbelieving.
In a world we live in today, we need God's gifts to help others get through this, including ourselves!!
