Lord, There are times I feel so overwhelmed,
but only know to pray and hang on!
Doesn’t it always seem to be such a battle most when one is fasting?
I’m not sure if Satan is fighting so hard,
or if You are trying and growing my faith,
both, or what?
But I will declare now to Satan and and the whole world…..
I LOVE MY GOD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST NO MATTER WHAT!!
I MAY FAIL HIM, BUT HE HAS NEVER FAILED ME!
I MAY BE IMPERFECT, BUT GOD IS ALWAYS PERFECT!
AND THOUGH I MAY FAIL TO HAVE A PERFECT TESTIMONY
OF BEING CONTENT IN MY PRESENT SITUATION,
I AM CONTENT THAT MY GOD LOVES ME EVEN NOW!!!
HIS WAYS ARE PERFECT
EVEN WHEN I HAVE NO CLUE OF WHY THINGS ARE THE WAY THEY ARE!!
AND WITH GOD’S STRENGTH,
I WILL CONTINUE TO TRY TELLING EVERYONE POSSIBLE…
GOD LOVES YOU!!!
Lord, I miss so much… so many things I use to physically be able to do. Yet I am reminded I am who You have made me. You know better than me what one thing is connected to another. The world can mean well, especially about things that seem normal or even seem necessary, but for reasons You alone know (but sometimes graciously share) You have removed me from some things or removed some things from me that You deem crucial for my way of thinking. My world has been critical to my way of thinking for years, and at times as if all rolled into one. Just as You drew me out and set me apart to have relationship with me played the most valuable role in helping me to sort out the junk in my head (to even see it was there) from all different sources and voices, and my own flawed thinking… even now to crave or to miss anything allows You to draw me out and set my spirit aside for You and You alone.
If I missed out on something that means so much to me, especially because I believed You were in it, I know You have Your reasons and I am to trust You. My depression may linger heavy, but Your love lingers much heavier. Saturate me in everything about You. Your love is my hedge. I don’t know what You have planned for me to suffer or to celebrate, but as long as I am with You that is ALL that matters. Not all the battles I lose are losses in Your eyes. Sometimes I just need to see it through the way You view it.
LORD, this journey never seems to end.
Nothing ever seems to stop.
There is no break,
no catching one’s breath.
Yet there is so much glory
for so many blessings
that seem hidden
in the fog.
Thank You for being on this journey
No one ever compares to You.
You’re the only one
who never leaves.
You’re the only one
I’ll take the reminder
for my strength.

I am so thankful
that our God is so in control
that He is NEVER afraid
just because I am!
Satan may want me to worry
and steal that comfort
found in my Father,
but God wants me to trust
that He will even help my unbelief!!
Christmas Countdown: God’s protection is very much a gift. Whether in terrible storms, the darkest nights, the deepest depressions, the bloodiest wars, or in the hands of the vilest offenders, God is able to protect us from every single one.
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
– Psalm 91:1 KJV
The whole Chapter of Psalm 91 tells of
His loving and mighty protection. ❤
