Good Morning Warriors!
Today is a tough one for me. It’s my Dad’s birthday and he is still alive yet I am not free to go be with him today. Because of that Black Widow who took over his life before my mother’s dead body was lowered into the ground, I lost my mother and my father on the same day.
I know some people would condemn me and say that I should have stayed in his life, and still attended all the family functions regardless of this woman.
But it’s not that simple.
I did try to remain in the family but it was not just about this woman. It is bad enough that she has literally taken over his home, runs the place, and is treated by the rest of the family as if she is the rightful woman of the house. But as I’ve mentioned before my own sisters hate me and have done everything in their power to hurt me including treating me like an outsider and her like a victim.
I know that there are some of you who also feel the pain of being estranged from your families.
What is the most ‘interesting’ to me is after I made the hard decision to stop putting myself in that toxic environment and allowing myself to be their spiritual and emotional target, I started looking back over my life and began to see how this did not just start with my mother’s death but virtually all my life.
I don’t know about your situation, but I can look back through my life all the way back, and now certain things that happened or were said I can see my sisters hated me from the time they drew their first breath. I was always the odd man out.
And it has carried through until now. They backed the Black Wideo one thousand percent and were glad to see me remove myself from the family. And then turned around and blamed me for leaving.
That is what is known as gaslighting and yes entire families can pick out one person and do that to them. I’ve become the scapegoat for the entire family.
After my mother’s funeral where my sisters intervened and kept me from speaking and went so far as to say to my face that I would be an embarrassment if I tried to preach, I attended a service at my Dad’s church (again trying to remain part of this family).
It was the church I grew up in which is the prime example of the old country church out in the middle of nowhere and the preacher is a country bumpkin that has no power or real knowledge of The Word. He gives his little twenty-minute feel-good speech on Sunday and everyone is good to go.
But I digress, that particular Sunday after the service was over I was still inside and the rest of the family had gathered outside when suddenly out from the graveyard came a black snake and stopped at the feet of my sister (the one who truly hates me the most).
That was confirmation to me that day, a reminder of just how much satan is involved in what has happened with my family and I know with yours as well.
My heart is heavy today and I share about it only as a reminder to you that if you are estranged from your family, and at its core, it is because of your Faith, then it is not your fault.
If you are like me, the enemy tried to beat you to death with guilt. He tries to convince you that all of this is your fault, you caused it, you could fix it, and all of it is on your shoulders. Or he tries to convince you that you have not really forgiven them even though you pray for them and ‘reforgive’ them just to be sure over and over. He is a liar and the father of lies, always remember that.
More than likely you have tried really hard to remain within the family but no matter what you do, they find fault with you or go out of their way to make you so uncomfortable that you have had to make the hard decision to stay away altogether.
M heart is heavy for and with you.
Both my father and my stepson are under the demonic spell of satan’s minion Black Widows. These women come into their victim’s lives and the first thing they do is cause them to ‘hate’ their intended target.
This woman who now lives with my father did not care about anything else but driving me away and because of the intense emotional pain of trying to remain in what became a toxic environment, she got her way.
If you still have a relationship with your family and are able to truly feel as if you are among people who care about you then you are Blessed because, for the Remnant, that is rare indeed.
Godspeed & Warrior On!

I call forth legions of angels to hearken to the voice of His Word and go to work bringing manifestation of The Promise that even as many fall it will not come near us. In The Name of Jesus, I curse and condemn every negative word, prayer, curse, hex, or spell released against us. I declare every generational curse null and void. I declare the Treasury of Heaven open on our behalf and that prosperity will abound too and through us to The Honor and Glory of God and to advance His Kingdom. I declare God’s Favor is our portion and will manifest in every way and every day of our lives! I declare our Gratitude and willing obedience will make room for us in our Father’s eyes. I declare all these things done and expect only a good report and outcome. In Jesus Mighty & Holy
