This is a post from my friend Angie at http://angiesthatsthat.blogspot.com/. Angie is assigned to a wheel chair for the remainder of her life with a rare and debilitating disease. Yet she is my inspiration and my role model. If you don't read another blog daily, I would encourage you to read this one. It is an inspiration!
I think this caption points out the value of reflecting upon our
past. I can personally think back on times where I felt scared or lost
in what to do but was always equipped with a solution in His timing. 'I
will never forsake you' is a comforting thought in stressful
People often say 'Life isn't fair.' Who said it was supposed to
be? I think we see others trials and wonder if we could handle it as
well. I think God equips us in a specific manner for specific
ordeals. As I was going somewhere the other day I was a little anxious
about needing to cough. I saw a church sign that said 'Trusting God
relieves panic.' The storms of life will come to test you so your
foundation must be solid to withstand them. God gives us a full set of
armor to fight our battles. We are to always speak the truth, always do
the right thing, always be ready to witness to others, always trust with
faith what we do not understand, always guide our ways thru the Word,
and pray without doubt. This is how we make our way thru a dark world
with the light of the Son.
Ephesians 6:13-18 ''Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. ''
