One Voice Makes A Difference with Janet Swanson

Aug 21, 2023

Donna shares her story of grief where she walked through a season of death and grief.  But then the Lord showed up in the valley of the shadow of death.


Matthew 6:13 is where it all began for Donna on 6-5-23. She was reading in the book of Matthew….the God showed her this…..

“And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one”

She noticed that grief was becoming her identity and she was tempted to fall back into something she was never suppose “live in”. Grief is meant for us to “pass through” not “dwell in”.

Donna said she felt God speak deep into her spirit, “it’s time to get your JOY back!" 

Then the next day it continued with Psalm 51

“……..Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love.

Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins.

Wash me clean from my guilt……..wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Oh, give me back my joy again; you have broken me

now let me rejoice……….Restore to me the joy of your salvation….”

Donna was tempted to go back to  Grief, Guilt,  because it was all so familiar.  Then she noticed at the end of the words “familiar” is LIAR!  The LIAR was stealing the joy of her salvation.   

Immediately she felt the Holy Spirit come on her and she became free and  the process of healing was ushering in the spirit of JOY! “I have joy back in my life again after a long period of time!!!

Praise came back into my lungs after guilt kept my lips sealed”, says Donna

Donna said that grief ushered in  guilt  because she was not able to save and fix the pain…it  caused much anxiety and she realized it was cutting her very breath off!!!

Grief when looked up affects your lungs!!!

It’s causes poison to set in and you can’t live when poison is silently killing you!!!
