🎵“You are my joy, You are my song
You are the well, the One I'm drawing from
You are my refuge, my whole life long
Where else would I go?
Day after day, night after night
I will remember, You're with me in this fight
Although the battle, it rages on
The war is already won
I know the war is already won
Surely my God is the strength of my soul
Your love defends me, Your love defends me
And when I feel like I'm all alone
Your love defends me, Your love defends me.”🎵 The words in this song by @mattmahermusic rang loud in my ears this morning... Each day I experience the attacks of the battle. For me, they come in the form of lies. Telling me I’m not good enough. Not a good enough wife, mom, friend, blogger, Christian. Since I’m not good enough, I might as well just quit! Don’t bother trying. It can be exhausting and I can end my day batter and bloody.
Or I can stand on this truth. The one that reminds me the war is won. God is my first line of defense. He is my well and refuge. He’s right along side me each day, fighting for me to hear the truth.
The truth is that I am enough. The truth is He has plans for me, and if I can run to Him when the lies are loud, I stand a chance. He will defend me and give me strength. He promised. He will do this for me and He will do it for you too. ❤️❤️
Today is a big day. It's scan day! I have not had a happy scan day in quite a while. But I feel it coming y'all! I had this realization the other day. When Jesus died on the cross, he took on every single bad thing any human being has ever done and ever will do (yes Every. Single. Sin. from murder to the cursing I did this morning in San Francisco traffic). He took the violent punishment we all deserved and died a wretched death with literally the weight of the world on his shoulders. He laid dead for 3 days. But then, God. The spirit of God came on him and raised His dead rotting lifeless body that was torn to shreds and made Him alive and whole. That same spirit (no, really the same exact one) resides inside my body.....in every single vein and vessel, in every single little cell. If that spirit can raise Christ from the dead why can't it make the cells in my body behave? I mean seriously. Really let that sink in! MAN SO GOOD! "And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who lives in you." ROMANS 8:11 AMP
I should have results back this evening! Praying hard, but this war is already won! #stageivbreastcancer#godisbiggerthancancer#scanday#yayjesus#thewarisalreadywon
HE IS RISEN...who would you die for? Me? Your coworker? You bff? Your enemy? Jesus did just that, and by doing so he conquered death! This gives me Joy in knowing that my son 's soul lives because he believed in Jesus and that death is the beginning of your eternal life!💭❤Happy Easter Sunday!
"I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous, be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy; I have overcome the world, My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding." -JESUS
JOHN 16:33 AMP
Always a good reminder for myself, so I thought I'd share with others.
We often doubt ourselves, our abilities, our friendships, our beauty, our art...but I have good news!
Seek Him and you will find Him! He will give you the desires of your heart. Be encouraged, friends and take heart!
