From the Heart

A broken heart was all I’d ever known
I was certain I was destined to walk this life alone
So many tears to God I’d cried
Too many times I’d wished He’d just let me die
Yet He forced me to hold on
And I just couldn’t understand His plan or what He was doing
I was broken beyond repair
There wasn’t anyone to care
I had built walls so high they could never be breached,
Iron chains around my heart to ensure it would never be reached.

But Gods had a plan
He had chosen a VERY special man
I was drawn to YOU in a way I can’t even explain
I suddenly needed you like a parched flower needs the rain
I thought I’d known love before, but I didn’t have a clue
No, I didn’t know until God gave me YOU
You are the best part of me
Where I always want to be
God brought us together this I know
And our love every day will continue to grow
From now until the end of time
YOU, Jackie Harper, will ALWAYS be mine. ❤️

Ohhh how these verses are for me! My patience is a work in progress, more so lately and I needed this reminder so very much. “Let patience have her work, that ye may be perfect and entire…” Patience, my friends, is part of the process! Thank You Holy Spirit, I needed this gentle nudge this morning. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” ~ James 1:2-4

The devil seeks to cause chaos and destroy our sound mind. He is a liar and fear cannot abide in the presence of our Lord. The renewing of our mind is key in pushing out the thoughts that he tries to implant on a daily basis. Fight him by standing on the Word, fight him by renewing your mind daily. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” ~ 2 Timothy 1:7

The enemy is constantly accusing, but we have overcome by the bloods of the lamb. Those things can’t hurt us anymore. Glory hallelujah! What they can do is reach other people and pull them from out of the out of the pits of hell. What we’ve been through, what God redeemed us from becomes a testimony to reach others. That deserves a praise shout! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” ~ Revelation 12:10-11

There is so much love in this verse! We have a Father and He is mighty! With Him, we were NOT given the spirit of fear. When you feel that creeping in, cry out to Him, “Abba” and He will answer!!! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” ~ Romans 8:15

He is our salvation, strength, and song y’all! How awesome is that?! When our trust is in Him, we have NOTHING to be afraid of. We can find peace in Him even in the midst of the storm. How great is our God?! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Behold, God [is] my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH [is] my strength and [my] song; he also is become my salvation.” ~ Isaiah 12:2

I’ve really been fighting old demons lately and fear over past hurts is huge. Fear is a snare and my loving Father is quick to remind me of this! I am thankful for the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God to stand on when the devil attacks on this level. I have ammunition to fire back with. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“…but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.” I just LOVE that! David was greatly distressed, he had people coming at him, and he encouraged himself in the Lord. So much to learn from David! Perhaps you too are going through something today and you feel the crushing on every side, encourage yourself in the Lord. He will see you through! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.” ~ 1 Samuel 30:6
