When We Need Help, He Lifts Us Up!

Updated on March 23, 2010

Psalm 38:22

Come quickly to help me,
O Lord my Savior.

Psalm 54:4

Surely God is my help;
the Lord is the one who sustains me.

I am on a quit smoking mission.

I started on the 18th of March. I went to this free class at the hospital where they evaluate you and then give you the products to help you stop. I am on the patch right now and the gum. My sister and husband is taking this journey with me, so please pray for us.

God is my help and he sustains me, I am wanting to smoke still so bad..I really need support on this one.

Psalm 70:1

Psalm 70

 Hasten, O God, to save me;
       O LORD, come quickly to help me.

I'm praying all the time, I pray for help and for strength to keep going, something keeps wanting to drag me in, keep looking up for God is nearer than we think.

Keep praying..

Love BettyB

      Lord God, I pray that You would give Betty the strength and support she needs to overcome this addiction, and that You would replace it with something that will be for good in her life because You have a plan and a purpose for Betty that is for good, to give her a hope and a future.

      Thank You Lord, in Jesus name I pray.

      Hi Betty, Congratulations on your great achievement. To God be the glory as you, your sister and hubby go through one day at a time. It is not an easy ride but will be well worth it in the end. I will pray for you my sister. God bless.

      Keep it up and if you succeed think how much better you will feel and be able to taste and smell things on a whole new level. I wish my own mom would stop smoking. I guess its just her main weakness she cannot overcome. She doesn't even try.

      Jesus my Joy. Hello girlfriend. I have missed you. I have been meaning to come over for a visit sooner. I hope to return sooner. You go girl. I quit smoking and when I did the enemy kept trying to get me to pick up. I kept laying myself at the Lords alter. I told the enemy to get his hands off in the name of Jesus. By day 3 better Each day got better. I thought no way is he taking me down. By day 5 better. I thought I am not doing those days over again. You are going to make it. I know it. Keep chewing that gum. I did use gum. Praise God. You are free. Keep saying you are free. Love you Sweetie Keep me posted OK. You must come over and catch up 'To Love Larger' my newest hub. I am praying for you. "I can do all things though Christ who strengthens me'

      JesusmyJoy, I am praying for you! You can do this with the Lord's strength. Each time you don't smoke your breathing gets better, you can better resist those allergies... You will really be able to smell the flowers and fresh air! BE ENCOURAGED!

      See the Lord even gave you a support group to help you through. There is power in a three strand cord it is not easily broken. God is able! You can do this!!! In His love & Blessings!

      You go girl! You are going to go from glory to glory! This is a new season in your life and it's a new life season of God's and he is going to bless you with health and a distaste for cigarettes like you have never seen. I am so proud of you and I will pray for you for 3 straight weeks to resist this thing that taste good but destroys in the end! I ask for deliverance in the Name of Jesus for all three of you!

      Betty you know I'm all for you in this one as I will always be there for you in all things, just kepp saying to the devil that he has no hold over you non at all, tell him many times each day mainly when you feel like lighting up, you will see in a short time you will have won, and only with the help from our LORD.

      "In the name of Jesus I pray for the temptation of smoking will be taken away, and I pray that the devil will be bound up and cast away and the smoking desire will be less each day, I pray this in your name Jesus Amen".

      I will be praying as well for you. I've been out of touch here at the Hub site, I was hospitalized again, in June - this time was a very close call but God pulled me through it. For his love will always surround us, lift us and take us through days of illness, days of rain, and most definately will be there to help you with your mission. I need to do that myself - doctors orders! Bless you hon - Hope Summer is treating you well.
