Wanting to go back to where I thought I was safe – but wasn’t. 

And afraid to go forward for fear of what might be ahead. 

“There the Lord will redeem you out of the hand of your enemy.” Micah 4:10

Doubts

“The doubts others plant in us can be sufficating.” Anna has really brought out what many of us have struggled with or are struggling with. Thank you Anna.

ANNA WALDHERR A Voice Reclaimed, Surviving Child Abuse

Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them…” (Rom. 12: 6).

The doubts others plant in us can be suffocating. Stifling to our spirit.

Often this starts very early, with the harsh criticism of childhood endeavors, the imposition of restrictive adult standards on children too young to fulfill them. We learn to pursue perfection – ever elusive perfection – rather than develop our own art.

That applies whatever form our “art” may take:  poetry, sculpture, music, carpentry, cooking, laughter. You name it. Denied tenderness, we are robbed of words, robbed of rhythm, robbed of savor, robbed of joy. Denied our natural way of relating to things.

Carry in your heart love and peace.

Not doubt and deception. 

Take with you His shield,

for Satan lurks in

unexpected places.

*

Hold close to your armor

for the truth is in

your sword.

*

Be not afraid of the enemy,

for Christ is the Power,

the Authority,

above and over

all.

*

Walk tall in His grace,

for it is by grace

you are free.

*

Wear His smile,

let His gleam sparkle

in your eyes.

Be His tongue

and voice

and let only

compassion

speak through you.

*

Join His army of believers,

for if you do not

believe,

You are the

opposition.

*

His wrath comes

upon those

who are

the enemy.

By the Holy Spirit

By John Grant-

Ruth looked at the envelope again. There was no stamp, no postmark, only her name and address. She read the letter one more time…

Dear Ruth,

I’m going to be in your neighborhood Saturday afternoon and I’d like to stop by for a visit.

Love always, Jesus.

Her hands were shaking as she placed the letter on the table. “Why would the Lord want to visit me? I’m nobody special. I don’t have anything to offer.” With that thought, Ruth remembered her empty kitchen cabinets. “Oh my goodness, I really don’t have anything to offer. I’ll have to run to the store and buy something for dinner.” She reached for her purse and counted out its contents. Five dollars and forty cents. “Well, I can get some bread and cold cuts, at least.” She threw on her coat and hurried out the door.

A loaf of French…
