This date marks the end of our first quarter of memorization. I've literally collected 4 pages of Scripture to choose from & to share with you. As I've read through each page I have placed an asterisk (*) beside the ones that are speaking to me at this point in my life. Where is God growing me? What is he preparing me for?
I don't know if you have been following my video journey for (BII) Breast Implant Illness or not, but I am definitely in a place of trusting my Father for direction & wisdom on how to move forward. The big question is, How does He want to use me in this situation? The one thing that I constantly pray is that the enemy does not use my life or my circumstances to distract me from God's purpose FOR ME. And in writing this, I just realized that my verse is one that I've known for years. It all comes down to preparedness. How prepared are you for life's trials? What do you do, when the going gets tough? Do you hide & wallow in misery? Or, Do you strike with precision & dedication? I've discovered that when I am physically in need of healing that I escape. Thankfully, I don't usually stay there too long, but it is something to guard myself against. It's OK for a warrior to rest, it is NOT OK for a warrior to flee. This is a war and it will be until we pass into eternity. So, if you find yourself in a place of hiding - my encouragement to you is this.... Stand Up. Step Out.
3/15/18, 1 Peter 5:8 AMP, "Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour."
