🤔 Feel like a warrior today??? Maybe not. Here’s a bit of a pep talk for ya. Remember because of Jesus you have more power than you can even imagine. Don’t feel it? Believe it! God says so. He gives us HIS OWN POWER.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 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 🙏🏼 in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.” Ephesians 6:10-20
We are warriors. We are transformed. We are powerful. We are fearless. 💪🏻
Join us and more women on April 20th at our moms’ night out event as we cheer each other on this side of heaven to get dressed and be fitted to stand our ground for His kingdom. We are women. We are God’s daughters. Here us roar!!! 💪🏻💕🙏🏼
I see you
Right through you,
Right through the brave face
The game face
The same face that smiles at the world
While inside whole cities are tumbling
Your walls are crumbling
Those steps that were once so sure are stumbling
And the earth quakes so much that you fear
You will never get steady.
Because all you want is to feel safe.
Yes, a warrior queen you are
But every queen craves a king
Who will protect and adore her.
Because what you miss is loving
And being loved.
It's the loneliness that bites,
The empty bed, the silent nights
When you hold yourself tight
To keep from falling apart.
Because what you need is to find home
Where your heart is.
To find some tranquility
Away from the battlefield
Where you can take off your armour
And be a woman again.
I remember writing this in a desperately lonely period of my life, after I lost my first husband, when I wondered whether I would be on my own to the end.
But it's something so many of us can relate to, right?
What a surprise of a day.
Thankyou to Mark who has started the day with the lovely gifts of beautiful Luna Lovegood Pop and anime surprises.
Thankyou to @victoriarayson for a lovely brunch and catchup this morning over pancakes. Pictures forever !
Thankyou to @kayleighnorth for a surprise meal and get together this evening. So much love has been felt and I was well and truly spoilt with fantastic gifts, cake and the most interesting and unforgettable cards today.
My child will never have cancer. It happened. My child will never have a code blue. It happened. I’ll never be able to give my child shots. It happens. I’ll never be able to give my child chemo. It’s now happened. You never expect it to be you. But it happens.
Tomorrow we have a long day planned starting with the Make a Wish Easter egg Hunt, Hazels beyond excited, Easter is her favorite holiday. I was planning out the details of the day, then I realized that Hazel is suppose to have treatment. The last thing I wanted to do was cancel the day, cancer can’t and won’t ruin our fun. The only option I have is to learn how to give my child her chemo, so she can still have a fun day tomorrow. I see her getting chemo all the time, but its different when I have to push poison into her body to kill cancer myself. It’s something I never wanted to do, honestly it’s something I didn’t think I ever could do. It’s funny how that works isn’t it? How strong these trials make you, how far these trials make you push your limits. This family is strong, nothing can hold us back. Not even cancer.
We will Fight. Together. Always.
