My prayer is that every hurt you have encountered throughout your life will be released from you as you go through the various chapters. Like a person who sets a goal to lose weight, you will set a goal in your mind and heart today, and you will begin working hard to lose hurts that have been keeping you from your destiny and the land of promise. Many of you think because you are walking in the newness of life everyone else is traveling the same road. The mind you now have is the mind of Christ, and your sole purpose is to please God. You do not expect to deal with drama in the church. You expect to see a noticeable difference between the unsaved and those who profess salvation. The dreadful cycle of hurt has damaged, wounded, and killed many people in the church. No matter how hard you try to camouflage the pain inside, it is not hidden. You can cover bruises, scars, and cuts, but hurt to the heart shows in various forms that are noticeable. Evangelist Joyce L. Carelock is known for her words of encouragement, wisdom and her passionate call to motivate others to do the will of God. By the mercies of God she has moved out in faith to help others identify and understand their God given abilities. She believes that God has her in this place for a time such as this. Her motto is: "If I can have it, God can Heal It." She is determined to believe God no matter what! She has spoken at many women's retreats and conferences, etc. With joy, she now serves as First Lady of Grace and Mercy Cathedral COGIC, in Chantilly, VA.
