Spyke is gone

My dog (my life buddy)'s health was declining rapidly. 

So, I asked the Lord what I was supposed to do: he was only 8 and a half years old. Was I to pray for him to heal?  

(I witnessed a couple of miraculous healings during my life, so why not his?)  But He answered:  

– Let him go, Alain. His time has come. 

His answer reminded me that we were nothing but passers-by on earth and that it was only natural that we should go one day. 

If the most caring and fair person I know (God) says so, then I know that the best thing to do is just to accept he would soon die…  

 

 

On Sunday, our small family gathered on the deck to spend one last moment with him. Witnessing everyone’s sadness wasn’t easy, but it truly was such a beautiful day of fall… The forest's beautiful colors were enhanced by the sun. Such peace emanated, that I had the feeling I hadn’t actually noticed it before. Spyke was suffering and could hardly move, but I realized that he came to each one of us, wagging his tail feebly, as if to say goodbye. 

In the evening, at home, Spyke left us. I saw him leave; I saw his life fading away. In tears, I carried his little body to the animal care center. I couldn't walk straight and was afraid of dropping him. I so wanted to be with him until the end, so when they put him in a freezer until cremation… my heart shattered for good. 

 

As I was leaving the place, I was crying at the thought of my lifeless dog, abandoned in this cold and horrible box. That's when Jesus told me: 

– He's gone, Alain… Gone!

His words comforted me, it wasn't my dog I had left there, it was just his body, he wasn't there anymore. 

I'm grateful to the Lord for having known Spyke all these years, my doggo so full of joy and life… I am more than ever determined to make the most of every single moment I am given. I'll rejoice in everything around me. I'll savor still living on this earth and being able to bless people with my writings and my drawings. And, of course, I'll go in the forest to talk with God… without Spyke.

Spyke in my books….

My little dog can be seen for the first time in "Meet me in the forest 2" *. He was just a baby then, and was so cute!! And, of course, since he's a part of my life, he was back in " Meet me in the forest 3" *. Check him out… he's a real piece of work!!

Long before he was born, I had given "Robi" a little dog named Sir Flea Skwad, a spy serving the Creator and employed at helping his owner… I wasn't aware of it then, but I now realize God was preparing me to welcome Spyke. And my Creator has helped me a lot through him, just like in the strips.

Lauren's testimony

 This text is in three parts

– Lauren's cry 

– her letter

– her testimony

A cry has nothing to do with a nice, politically correct prayer, the kind you can brag about in church. No, you spit it out from your guts. And it's a good thing too, coz' it's you God cares about, not any kind of religious bows (He's no gym teacher!). Besides,’good manners’ are the worst insult to sincerity. 

 God hears

If I'm sharing Lauren's letter with you (with her authorization), it's because I believe her testimony will help some of you.  

Jesus answered Lauren's cry one way. He might answer yours differently, but it will always be with love. Because, since He opened heaven's door, your cries to Him are heard in high places. 

 Lauren's letter 

Hi Alain!

It's Lauren :) I get your newsletter by mail and each time, it brightens up my day. 

I seize this opportunity to tell you how much Spyke's story moved me. https://www.auderset.com/en/blog/spyke-est-parti THANK YOU so much for sharing with us these tough moments you faced. 

 The first (and one time) I wrote to you was in March of this year. I was telling you how "lonely" in my faith I was feeling. So, as you suggested, I contacted G. and that was …awesome! Such a simple and warm person, and his family as well. I also met a couple of people from the church. 

On September 5th, I was baptized. What a memorable day, so full of joy! In short, I am happy! So happy to have met Jesus and to be able to live all this with Him. 

On this occasion, I prepared a small testimony I'm attaching to this mail. 

 

See you soon, Alain.  

 Lauren

 

Lauren's testimony 

Life is good

My name is Lauren. I was born to a family that lacked nothing. Brought up with love, support and financial security, I was a well-educated diligent girl and a dreamer above all. Because of our education and our Catholic upbringing, I was aware of God but he was by no means first in my life. 

Life was good. I was a good student, gifted with artistic talents (in singing and dancing), and boys showed appreciation. In other words, as one of my friends put it, my life was that of a princess with not a cloud in sight. I really had nothing to complain about. 

The glitch

At 15, at adolescence, tables turned. The sweet and smiling little girl I was, became a rebellious and more or less depressive youngster. (Not so) petty criticisms about my looks made me feel bad about myself and about my body. I started losing self-confidence and self-esteem and no longer loved myself. The only thing that comforted me was food, but I very soon started controlling my diet in order to lose weight. I hadn't realized what door I was opening and how this kilo hunt was leading me into a game very hard to quit. Restrictions and frustrations made me compensate and I would automatically regain the weight I had lost, if not more. The perfectionist I was couldn't cope with all the fails in this race all about weight and looks. I was wearing myself out. This yo-yo dieting lasted until I was 23. 

The cry

One night, one of the many times I binge ate, I couldn't get up from the couch anymore and I was feeling really bad. My stomach hurt so much. It was unbearable. 

I was only able to cry out: JESUS! 

 

Psalm 18 :6 (NIV) "In my distress, I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple, he heard my voice, my cry came before him, into his ears." 

That night something changed. Straight after my cry for help, indescribable peace came over me, taking away all stomach pain. Someone had met my grief. 

Falling back 

In spite of this first sign, my eating habits quickly caught up with me, ensnaring me in the same patterns all over again; there was a difference, however. 

My will to overcome this was strong! I started opening the word of God (the Bible) and I'd pray when things got too bad, hoping He'd have the time to listen to me. 

But I rapidly turned to other methods that seemed more "efficient" to me. I started with a food balance program in order to manage my intake. Then, I underwent behavioral therapy to address my lack of self-confidence and self-esteem. Another therapy went back to what I could've experienced in my mother's womb that could be impacting my present life. Then, I tried another more "energy focused" approach, based on the belief that my energy supply was being drained by some toxic relationships I had. I wanted to heal from these eating disorders so badly that I ended up following a couple of hypnosis sessions. Long story short, none of these methods ever healed me. They did temporarily relieve me but at what cost? The relapses would cause even more pain. 

Every time, I thought I had found THE solution that would free me from this living hell. But it was all in vain, nothing but mist, a chase after the wind (Ecclesiaste 4:16) 

 

Falling for Jesus

 

A year ago, driven by the Holy Spirit, I cried out for the second time and a spiritual authority stood up against my 13 years of eating disorder to save, free and heal me!

 2 Thessalonians 3.3 "The Lord is faithful, and He will protect you from the evil one" 

 Since then, Jesus has been with me every day, through thick and thin. He is #1 in my life, at last. He is my friend, my confidant, He is the ONLY person never too busy to listen to me. 

I gave Him my life and was baptized to show Him how much I loved Him and wanted to follow Him all the way. 

Jesus still heals today.

Every time you say: "yes" to one thing,

in some way, you say "no" to another.

'coz you can't stretch time.  

 

So, every time you're being proposed a program, listen to your concerns and priorities first. Listen with your heart to God’s point of view and not only to other people’s opinion about it… LISTEN TO YOURSELF, you're worth it.  

 

Be at peace with yourself even if it means saying no,

'coz every time you say no to a suggestion, you say yes to another. 

 

My top priority 

For me, it's spending quality time with God every day. With Him, I learn harmony. It mostly takes place in the forest…

I was on a train heading for Lyon (a big town in the south east of France). Suddenly, the guy sitting in front of me has a heart attack! 

The conductor shook him like a rag doll, in vain, and uniforms started swarming around him . A doctor was asked for, on the intercom. 

A commotion broke out in the car. The passenger was lying on the ground. Mouth to mouth… cardiac massage, in vain. The guy turned from white to green. 

I know that this happens every day. We're just travelers on earth and should be expecting to see people leave this world, from time to time. Then, I remembered that this guy had asked me to watch over his stuff while he was gone, which I had agreed to.

What if his “stuff” was more than just his bag? So, keeping quietly to myself, I asked God to do something about it, in order for this man to get another chance of knowing Him and put his life in order before reaching eternity. And suddenly, the guy was back!

He left on a stretcher escorted by an army of firefighters, policemen and doctors. 

 

And the story goes on…

In Bienne, where I was supposed to change trains, something had already occurred. A lady was touched when she overheard me speaking about God’s grace with a friend I had bumped into. As we were getting off the train, she was telling me that she knew me (the artist) and that, most of all, she used to be a believer too. We haven’t talked much but it was powerful. As a result, I missed my train (had to change my ticket, reorganize everything…)... and now with this new event, I had the feeling history was repeating itself… (?!) 

I was on my way to two cities to perform a show and was well aware it was going to be a spiritual trip, but wow…! Hell of a start! 

Being close to God makes life really exciting. That’s what my book “Meet me in the forest” talks about. You can download the first 80 pages for free:

So many lost!!!

A couple of weeks ago as I was driving through a city, I was feeling for the world around me, so I prayed: 

-Lord, so many people don’t know You exist. And when they do, they’re not aware that You can be so close.

I was feeling down. It’s so unfair but it’s a fact in our society and I can’t stand it. I carried on: 

-Lord, may I get to reach them in order to tell them so and introduce You to them. Show me the way, what to write or draw or whatever… in order to reach them where they stand! 

I got a few hints from Him, which I faithfully follow every day. It’s really powerful. It takes a heck of a time but I’m looking forward to witnessing the result when it’ll be released.  

In the meantime, here’s a letter I received recently.

k

This young man wrote to me in his own style (I only slightly changed his letter for a better understanding). Thank you for praying for him and those who are like him… 

With love, Alain 

Yannis’ letter My name is Yannis. I’m 15 and I live in Rennes, a town in France. 2 years ago, I was kind of shy and generally nice with people. But I could lose it sometimes (when my mother or my sister got on my nerves, I’d beat them). 

k Over the top And one day, I was kicked out of school. It was a shock ‘coz I had lost all of my friends. I couldn’t help crying. I started trying to figure out why all this was happening and I realized I was always messing around, I wasn’t good enough, nice enough, too imperfect.  So, with all my heart, I decided to change. I was determined to be as perfect as possible. 

k God? A couple of weeks later, my father showed me a movie on the life of Jesus and I became interested in God. The first thing I did was to type “God” on YouTube. I scrolled through the videos and I saw a guy who looked cool so I clicked. 

Your video The title was: “Is God really your friend?” * (it was you and another guy from EMCI TV). I watched it and it broke my heart. It was so moving that I started crying without even knowing, it was unbelievable! (And I still feel like crying every time I watch the video). So, as you were telling us to do, I tried speaking to God and wanted to know more about him. I watched your other videos **, with EMCI TV and on your channel, and started getting closer to perfection every day. 

When I think of it, I realize how lucky I was to come across your video ‘coz it talked about God in a different way, a way that spoke to me. Have a nice day. 

* I’m sorry. The title was translated into English but the video is only available in French.
