Praise HIM in the STORM!

This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 KJV

What feels like a hundred weekends ago–but in reality it has only been thirty something, as Jeff and I were driving home from Gainesville, Florida…leaving a very weak sister behind…my heart was the heaviest I had felt for some time.

This song came on the radio and my tears fell like the rain that was pelting the windshield of the car, as my heart wept for the “unknown”. Our family had been in this place with her before. Watching Wanda struggle. Watching the enemy try and drain her very life from her body. But friends, family and even complete strangers began to pray. People that didn’t know Wanda began to call on the Father on her behalf….and Wanda’s little body began to strengthen—for a time…until her time came.

She had some very tough times…but her strength was amazing. Her faith was incredible. She held on to her faith when it seemed I had to search sometimes for mine. Hers remained steadfast and strong.

I am reminded of her faith and strength especially on these days when I have troubles arise and I look to the heavens for my help. I KNOW where it comes from…it comes from the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. There is not a day that passes that I don’t think of Wanda in some way. I probably always will. That is okay. For I will soon see her! That is a promise we have from the scriptures. I cling ever so tightly to that.

If you haven’t been on the Sisters of Faith site for any of the Bible Study yet, I encourage you to meet me over there. I have found the LORD so real and amazing! He has delivered His message into our hearts from the words penned by Beth Moore in her book, 90 Days with the One and Only. I have been blessed….and I FEEL what He is doing in my life. I also feel the enemy balking and trying to discourage me in my journey….but I carry on!

Denise, my melt down came yesterday. A bit lingered today…but I carry on. I grasp on to the hem of His garment and allow Him to pull me to my feet and we walk ahead. Ever reaching…ever stretching….ever running to the mark—to the place He has laid out for me—the place that takes me home. Home. Heaven.

Take His hand dear friend….He will never leave you nor forsake you…but will fill your cup as you lift it up…of HIS incredible annointing…CARRY ON!
