All Praises to God!
In His seasons, we live, we grow, we falter, we move ahead.
I have written honestly of my struggles of late, emotional eating, feelings of anxiety and depression in the midst of virus fears and worldly chaos only to realize that it is all a distraction. There is an enemy. Perhaps not one with a head of horns and a tail but an enemy exists just the same. However if we do not forget The Lord, we understand that the evil seeks only to thwart our successes to avoid its demise. It is when we are aware and standing fast that the wiles of the enemy are defeated.
Forgive me dear reader, for not holding to my truth. For it is not my mission to entertain you but to encourage, empower and lift you up! My distractions were a smoke screen. Natural healing supported me but thankfully it also led me to pray. I was guided to go deeper.
I did indeed pursue the medical expertise that I spoke of previously. A colonoscopy was performed and there inside a large polyp was found. I feel had it not been for my writing to you, sharing my wounds, I may not have been led to pray and would have missed the guidance that prevented a potentially fatal illness. Mind you, I dare not say that it is the devil that brings disease. It is our ignorance of evil, always lurking, using the vanities of life to distract from purpose.
We all have a purpose in this life. Some know it, while others have vague but persistent longings that tell them, “this is the way, walk in it”. Stay true to these things. Know this, there is one roaring about like a lion, seeking whom he may devour by fear, distraction and vain imagination.
Be careful that you do not forget The Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. Deuteronomy 8:11.
These words are the Holy Spirit speaking to you! Only you know the commands and decrees spoken unto you by the Spirit but assuredly you hold them in your heart.
Hold fast to your dreams.
Stay with The Lord.
