Thank you SO MUCH for your patience with me – today and all the other days you have blessed me with… it’s been a couple of rough weeks. You keep insisting…
That I forgive.
That I love.
That I allow you to fight my battles for me.
You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.
2 Chronicles 20:17
I’ve kicked and screamed. I’ve wept and squirmed. But I also kept showing up. I wrestled until I got the blessing BECAUSE I know you are faithful. And today I saw some fruit. Today I had some peace. Today I felt your strength and your presence.
Can you imagine me if you didn’t keep insisting I grow??
That my character remain a work in progress. What a frightful thought – to be stuck in spiritual adolescence.
Take this picture for instance – a terribly awkward what in the world was I thinking 12yo picture – I PRAISE you that’s not me today!
I am who I am today because of your faithfulness and nothing else. Oh how I love you Lord.
