Today has been a day filled with much needed quietness. Peace broken only by April’s barking. The Lord has been dealing with me on fear so I spent much of the day reflecting on this and studying Scriptures about it. As night set in, the enemy took to his normal tactics. He was quick to remind me, you are doing this all alone now. You have no one to depend on, no one to turn to, no one to even vent to. I sat for awhile reading through Facebook, the TV on but not really watching it. Finally, my Poppa said shut it all down and draw into me.
It is so easy to believe the devils lies in these moments. In the natural eye, I am doing it all alone. But that sweet Holy Ghost, resides within me and I’m not alone. My Father is the King of Kings and has more than enough to meet my every need. The devil is the father of lies. My Father, is the giver of life and he doesn’t want me to just survive, but to be a living testimony for Him. Jesus died to give me life and give it more abundantly. There is no way I’m letting the enemy steal, kill, and destroy what Jesus died to give me and make no mistake about it, that is his intent. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” ~ John 10:10
Alone, in my peaceful little have, I smile through the tears. By now anyone who follows me must know I’m a certified crybaby. It’s the heart God gave me. I have come such a long way in the last year and I still have so far to go. This evening I find hope in Isaiah 58:11, “And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.” My Poppa is “watering” me as I go. Those places in my mind that were overwhelmed with weeds of emotional abuse choking the life out of me are being pulled out by the roots and the Holy Ghost is filling that space with His Word, His seeds, everything of Him. I’m pressing on through Him, in Him. His living water is running through that “soil” and those waters will not fail.
What have you been through? What do you need healed from? What God’s done, what’s He’s doing for me… He will do for you too. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
