More Fire…More Desire

Spiritual storms are the worst.  But its more experience for me to walk by faith and not by sight. I hate the dark…but I have learned that my battles there are life changing, not only for me but for those around me.  When ever I finish a womens study, I seem to enter this realm that although I sense it coming, I am still never ready for it.  We (as a family) are in total surrender to the LORD, and after much struggling and prayer, we believe HE is relocating us and a new ministry is going to form. We don’t know when exactly, and we think we know where.

The enemy would like me to crawl under a rock, and shut my mouth, and I can’t do that..see I know too much for that, and bowing to him is not an option for me.  The enemy always goes after my children when he can’t reach me. For a long time I thought that if I spoke to the people who are in positions to encourage them and look after their souls (with in the church), and pray and encourage them myself, that was the best I could do, and well God has to do the rest.

Sometimes God wants us to pick up our sword, and fight the thing out.  Feeling that call right now.  Its become so important to me that my children never have their fire for Christ stepped on by believers. This is serious…children are being taught by adult actions to give the LORD lip service, and to turn their flame down. No that is so wrong!

We would love to have your prayers as we press on, and refuse to take one step without our God.  The world will fade away, but Yahweh…remains forever!  We know our need for more of HIM, and we know that laying everything down at HIS feet is worth more than worldly riches.  

Lord God, you know the situations and the hurts that have plagued us, we watched  as people lost their fire, and wondered how could this be? Please don’t let us lose our fire, increase the flame of desire for You, we will go with You, just not without You. 

Thanks for your prayers, we are blessed to have you all as a blog faith family..you are truly the body of Christ…Beautiful!

Storm Stories-Overcomer-Refuge

Noreaster is hosting a month of Storm Stories, today is my day to write for him.  But if you want to read it, you got it..you need to go there and read.  Please read the other posts while you are there and check in throughout the month.  I am very excited and encouraged about what has begun, and what will be presented there…so just do it!  It easy..just click on the pic “Storm Stories” ..see wasn’t that easy!

I believe that God is my refuge, my hiding place, my strong tower, and always with me.  Sounds kind of big headed, but seriously the Bible says its true, so Truth it is!  When you are caught in a storm (and yes you will), remember who goes there with you.  Peace and love…see you over at the Noreaster’s!
