Storms and more storms

I am realizing that I have been under attack by Satan himself. Since starting my online Bible Study, many hard hitting waves have been hitting me causing me to fall behind on my studies. I'm still "showing up" for my daily and weekly encouragements, nothing will deter me.

I've survived worse, so I'm ready... Lord, guide me to do your will. I will carry my cross as long as I have to.

Praise God for my unending faith!

Life at 50

A new chapter is being opened in my life, I will be turning 50 next week, and with it are some stirring storms and also some polishing with each wave that hits me. Through it all, I feel I am safe in His hands...

I am learning that God is directing me to focus on him and he will deal with the rest. I must say that it hasn't been easy, but my faith is strong and I know things are for a reason. I've already accepted why I went through such a terrible five years of marriage to a man that was so controlling and abusive in more ways than I can list, it was to prepare me for some trying times with a situation going on within our own family, but I welcomed that enlightenment and praised God for those storms experienced.

Dear Lord,

Thank You that You stand beside me today as I face this trial. Thank You that I am not alone. Would You take my fear and replace it with faith? You have said that You will never leave me nor forsake me. You have told me not to be afraid or discouraged. I believe that You will make me strong and courageous. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
