This will be my last post! I cannot delete my account without saying farewell! The door has been closed and I step with great faith through another. Praise be to God!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with you! What an encouraging, supportive community this is, and I so appreciate your faithfulness and kindness. I am incredibly thankful to God and to “Our Heavenly Prize” because He has used it mightily in my life and I am in great faith that He has used it mightily in yours as well.
The Lord has shown me, through this platform, that despite all my imperfections, I am well, I am saved, I am His, and I am loved. He has taken from me embarrassment, fear, shame, anxiety, condemnation, and guilt. I now know who I am in Christ. Hallelujah!
While it was extremely difficult to let strangers, friends, and family members into my world of chaos, I do not regret one single second. The past three years have brought me into my Father’s loving arms, erased past hurts, and replaced the space with love, joy, strength, and peace. In sharing my weaknesses, hardships, tears, and pain, I am no longer captive to the lies of the enemy. I stand tall due to the firm foundation of Jesus Christ.
I will continue to pray for people, our nation, leaders, and the entire world.
There is power in prayer!
I am reminded of the first time I was asked to pray for our emergency responders in a prayer group several years ago and not a sound pushed forth. I was paralyzed in fear and the silence was pure torture to my entire being. I desperately wanted to pray but could not utter a word. The prayer leader encouraged me with this statement:
“Prayer is a conversation with God.”
No matter how you pray, God desires to hear from you, He is listening, and He answers!
Philippians 3:13, 14:
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing. Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”
I love you all and God bless you!
