How To Change Your Life


Everything Can Change!    Maria Schaefer



I have done this for some time (Thanking the Lord).  I appreciate all the Lord Jesus Christ has done for me and my family, but last night it seemed it was imparted into me deeper than ever before.  I felt as though the reality of what the scripture says about thankfulness became a living vehicle within me; moving in new directions I have never experienced before.  As though I was learning something for the first time; it was a supernatural transference by the Holy Spirit that I recognized.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. 

Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.

Know that the Lord is God, It is He who made us, “and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.”

Enter His Gates with thanksgiving and His Courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.

For the Lord is good and His love endures forever;

His faithfulness continues through all generations.  (Psalm 100)

This new knowledge was as deep as any revelation I have ever received.  The act of being thankful opens Doors and Gates!  It brings in the understanding of how much we are loved by the Great Trinity.  Thankfulness is an act of heaven!  For the angels cry night and day, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.  (Rev 4:8)

 Through knowing the power of Yahweh, the angels cannot stop being thankful.  For they see creation taking place before them night and day.  How amazing they must feel, knowing they are near the One who is everything life can hold!

Disease and Sickness comes to Healing

In Psalm 103 it says,

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desire with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. 

The Lord healed me of a tumor on the bottom of my foot.  It was even deeper within the muscles than revealed on the outside.  An ultrasound revealed the whole tumor.

I asked the Lord at the time (years ago) what He wanted me to do about it?  The doctor wanted to do surgery, for they believed it could be cancer.  The Lord had a different direction He wanted me to take.  He wanted me to trust Him!

After going to the second doctor (who agreed to work with me, after sharing supernatural healing the Lord had done in me) I moved forward.  I asked the doctor for three months of praying for the tumor to be dissolved. 

As I began to pray daily after taking a shower.  I laid hands on the bottom of my left foot, and prayed earnest prayers, reminding the Lord I was His, and this foot was His as well.

Seeing the tumor going down in size on the outside (which was not supposed to happen I was told by the doctor through their diagnoses; this type of tumor is only removed through surgery)  I was more encouraged. 

One morning the Lord clearly said to me, “Maria, instead of praying the way you have, begin thanking me for your healing.”

From that day forward, obeying His new instructions; every morning I thanked Him for removing the tumor, although I could still feel it.  Thanking Him brought lack of checking it as much.  One morning I looked down at the soul of my foot, and it was completely gone!  When I went to the doctor he confirmed it!

 My doctor had never seen supernatural healing before, and looked as excited as I was.  Sometimes, after, I wondered if the Lord did the healing for the doctor as well; I will never forget that nice young doctor’s face of surprise!

If you have a disease in your body, begin to thank the Lord before the manifestation comes.   This takes place only after you’ve prayed, and asked Him what you are to do?  Remembering your body is His.  Sometimes it might be surgery.  Other times it might be going on faith.  One is not better than the other, for both are God’s decision, He decides, we obey. 

If it’s surgery, begin to thank Him for supernatural healing of your wound afterward. 

Thanking Him More

As we begin thanking the Lord, our body begins to manifest supernatural change taking place.   Supernatural power is released from the heavenly realm!   Our DNA (which is generational) begins to come in line with heavenly DNA.  The blood of Christ replaces the DNA of our generational line.  This cannot happen through self-reliance, but only through Yahweh’s power, and trust in Him. 

When we accept Christ, His Spirit is within us.  The Holy Spirit enters our spirit, which was void and dark before.   As the Holy Spirit enters He brings the kingdom of Yahweh with Him.  This includes heavenly DNA.  Yeshua has no disease in His heavenly bloodline. 

Some people would say this is impossible; these would be the same people who believe healing is not for today.  They might also be the ones who believe that getting sick glorifies God. 

God allows sickness to take place for His resurrection power to enter after.  He uses sickness to display His glory!  The time period of the healing is His decision, I believe.  What we learn as we seek our healing is part of God’s plan.  He wants us to know who He is, more than He wants us to be comfortable in what we are going through.


The heaven of Christ can change anything in our life.

 I have seen the portal of healing in the heavenly realm.  It brings forth Life!  I painted a painting of it.  It is an amazing sight!  Seeds are constantly moving and implanting healing!

The joy of the Lord is our strength wherever we are!  He never leaves us, or forsakes us.

Even if no one else believes the things the Lord is showing you about your life, whether healing, deliverance, or finances, carry it in you anyway.  Believe it until it comes about!

Wait, and watch the change take place by the only Living God on earth and heaven; for Yeshua always had supernatural healing in mind for you in every disease that can enter the body.  Yeshua never promised we would not get sick, He promised He would heal all our diseases. (Psalm 103).


I can’t explain how God does this, but He does.  He blesses me financially in ways that are unexplainable at times.  I should not have the provision I have in the natural realm.

I don’t take much of a salary.  Mainly (except for very little amount) my salary covers my expenses in the non-profit the Lord had me start fifteen years ago this coming June.  Yet, I have never wanted anything He has not provided for.

One of the reasons, I believe,  is that I’m very grateful to Him, and satisfied, for what He provides.  It seems that whenever I have a need for something, the Lord will send just the right person.  The individual seems to be the least expensive one, yet does the best job. 

I believe this is because I immediately am led to go into prayer, and ask the Lord what He wants me to do in the situation?  As, I’ve done this for many years, He provides the direction.   Sometimes I have to wait on Him, other times it is immediate. 

Many years ago I realized that the house I live in is His.  That I am a steward of the house the Lord has given me, and not the owner.  Everything I have belongs to Him. 

When I look at my woods on my lot, I thank the Lord for the scenery He has provided. 

For over thirty years the Lord has provided in this way.  I have seen angels in this house, as well as the Lord.  I have felt His presence in my house, and other people have said they feel it too. 

Things the Lord has promised have come about in my house.  When the Lord owns something, and we recognize it, miracles take place.

For your Maker is your Husband - the Lord Almighty is His name – The Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; He is called the God of all the earth.  (Isaiah 54:5)


Whenever I have traveled, I see the Lord in everything He created; whether it is my own country or overseas.  As I’ve grown older, I’ve noticed the protection the Lord has always had on my life.  This has been personally, and physically.  I’ve taken a vacation totally alone, with the Lord by my side, or with other people.   However God has directed.

I’ve had the opportunity to buy bibles (after witnessing to people in Europe).  I’ve enjoyed sharing about the Lord with millionaires, as well as those who needed finances.  These experiences were not planned by me, but by the Lord; for I knew none of these people ahead of time.   Realizing the Lord is my supply, I thank Him for everything continually.

The Word of God says, “I have never seen the righteous forsaken, or His seed out begging for bread.”  This scripture has been a continual truth in my life.

God bless,
