Hello, Blog Friends~ It's a cold and blustery day here in Missouri. February is already quickly moving along. We are just a few steps closer to Spring ~ can I get a hallelujah?
God has been allowing us to go through the fire. We have found ourselves caught in the cross-fire of evil and selfishness. It is so hard for me to hold my peace when I see what is behind political agendas. Last week~ I wrote from a paralyzed state of fear~ frozen in my place and unable to move forward. With hands opened wide and empty, I surrendered it all to Him. It is here where only God can work and bring faith instead of fear, peace instead of war and forgiveness instead of revenge. It is our very nature to want to manipulate and retaliate but God wants to fight our battles. He can do a much better job at settling scores than I can anyways.
In the midst of this season in life, God has done amazing things in our hearts. He has not only answered prayers but He has confirmed to us that He has done things that only He can do. He is walking a step closer to us and holding our hands a little tighter. He is planting our feet on solid ground and He is taking what others meant for our evil and turning it into pure gold. In time, I know He will trade beauty for our ashes. Amen and Amen!
