Today I write to you my dear brothers and sisters to ask for your prayers for myself...
Two days ago I was praying on the phone for a woman in great need... As I began to pray my feet went out from beneath my body as I fell down a flight of stairs injuring my back. As if I were pushed , yet no one was there !
For those of you who have been with me on this journey you know that I live daily in great pain due to a spinal condition. This incident/ trial has increased my pain exponentially
from the base of my spine to my neck and head.
And I screamed louder than I have ever heard myself ! At the pain and. .. at God ... I mean really Lord, where is my protection ? Oh I was so angry ! And then after I calmed and the shock began to clear...
I remembered to run
TO MY FATHERS EMBRACE AND NOT AWAY ...
At times like this and others, when we are attending someone's spiritual needs, it is not uncommon for the enemy to rise against us and attempt to strike us down... He does not like it when we set out to break down his lies and shine the light of truth upon him.
Nevertheless, we serve an all powerful , omnipotent God !
What the adversary wants is for me to quit serving the Lord, to stop saving souls, to disable me from speaking Gods truth to His children that He loves.
These are fiery trials meant to break us, turn us away from our faith and running to the lies that are more comfortable to live with.
But if we wait upon the Lord, who sees all, He will deliver us from our every affliction !
No matter what comes against us, we shall not faint, for our Lord comes with the balances of justice in His hand !
So , today I signed up for college classes to gain an even deeper understanding of the bible, that I may become more knowledgeable in the greatest weapon of heaven and earth, the sword of truth, The Word of Almighty God ! ( and maybe
much better equipped to defend
From my sick bed I will yet praise You oh Lord my God for You are faithful to deliver me !
When the enemy strikes, strike back ! I will recover and be stronger than before ! Do something to honor the Lord today and turn your back on the adversary not your Father in heaven .
Whatever you are struggling with today , quiet your soul, and just breathe , raise your hands in praise for your God is well able to uphold you, to quiet your fears, to calm your storm, to set you free, just don't give up ok ?
In the midst of my pain, and it is very serious, He is still holding me, tenderly cradling my heart and yours ... He whispers to us ever so
I am with you, now, in the pain, the storm, the grief, the agony,
and I will help you as you heal...
The Lord has you... Always.
I still have to fight my battles each day... but I never fight alone !
To be continued...
Thank you for your prayers !
