First Page – Stand in Your Anointment – This Too Shall Pass

This is the author’s personal story and journey through life. One that has been strewn with countless trials and tribulations, and so much pain. But through them all recognizing and realizing that it had to be God to take her through them and give her the grace to stand, and to continue in spite of all that trouble, and allow Him to gain glory through her life as she continued to go about the work that He had set before her to do

“The devastation, sorrow, pain and grief that followed the loss of my precious husband was almost too much to bear. This was the trial that I thought I was going to throw the towel in on, until God gave me the revelation that this must be my anointing and of how I was finally not only able to recognize it, but was able to grasp and take hold of the Gift that God has given to me through the Holy Spirit, the Gifts of Healing! And of how I now stand in that anointing and am using my gifts so that God will continue to be glorified in and through my life.”

Stand in Your Anointment – This Too Shall Pass 
Louise Malbon-Reddix

                                    Dear Friend,
Surely, these are trying days for you right now.  There are some places in life where we must walk where the path just isn’t so nice to walk in.  My heart is so open to you, because I kind of know what you are going through.  At times like these, it probably feels as if you are wearing someone else’s shoes. They’re uncomfortable, you don’t know how to step in them for fear of losing them; yet you don’t want to walk barefoot either.   Life is just presenting you with some of its unpleasantness at this time. But I beg you at this time through the Scripture that can be found in Matthew’s Gospel, 

Do Not Throw Your Pearls to the Swine but Draw Near to God.

 I cannot and dare not say that I know how you feel, because we all process things differently, but I welcome the opportunity to walk beside you as you travel through this uncertain time in your life. (While we both try to find shoes that fit. Please smile.)  I want you to know that I’m here for you.  Distance makes this a little harder, but know, that in spirit, I am there with you; a phone call away. Luke’s Gospel tells us that “With God, All things are possible”.  I pray you are able to get the support that you need. I am praying for you.  I’m praying that you will allow John’s Gospel into your heart and know that the “Comforter will come and lead you and guide you into all truth”, and will be able to view these shocks to your life with love. 
I’m told that everything in our life can be viewed with spiritual qualities by bringing our love to it.  We may not understand it, fear it, and the like, but if viewed from the point of view that God has everything under His control, and can just wait; soon the understanding will come. Isaiah’s Gospel says it like this, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength…”
 You see we wrap ourselves up in thoughts and fears; did I do enough, could I have changed anything, all the way back to thoughts of even could I have been a better child for my mother, to the point of tears.
 Grief is the word they call it.  I am ever grateful to God for being there with me through my times of test and trials, and for my friends and family who were, and are there for me.  Some thoughts that comforted and are still comforting me are that I know that Christ will reach out and does reach out and takes this wounded child; (you) into His arms and comforts me (you). I surrender and before you know it, I can again smile, and think loving thoughts.
 He’ll do the same for you, but only if you let Him.  I just want you to know that I truly do care about you.  So my friend, reach way down deep inside of you and you will find that there is a place in there where you are whole and complete, and will find a way to come to peace with yourself during this time in your life.

With Comfort, Cheer and Love

  1. Wonderful first page, Louise! I can see how your book would be beneficial to someone experiencing such a personal loss. It is true testament to the power of the Holy Spirit! Thank you, Trish, for sharing!

  2. I too thank Trish for sharing! She deserves to be commended for all she does. And this book was written expressly for the purpose of coming beside those who have suffered a loss. It was a very difficault time for me and I have learned so much along the way! I want everyone to go through their processes on their own terms. Sharla, you are a beautiful person, and I so thank you knowing that this too is a hard time for you. Stay encouraged. Louise
