David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 1 Samuel 17:45
What God showed/is showing me:
On this snow/ice filled week, God reminded me time and time again to find my joyful heart. Swords, spears and javelins came at us all week…especially in the form of sickness! Between Nash being back on breathing treatments, Quinn getting a sinus infection in his eyes and me getting mastitis again…I am DONE! I want nothing more to do with winter and sickness! But, I was reminded that, even though that the swords coming at us aren’t fun, we are SO blessed. (Seriously, I can deal with these silly little things that aren’t at all life threatening!) And, I am reminded of how blessed I am to have the Lord Almighty always fighting with me and FOR me!
If I give it to Him and speak His name, we can’t be defeated! BY ANYTHING! What an amazing Truth!
