EMPOWERING CHRISTIAN WOMEN: Pressing Through... Blogger Widgets

Pressing Through...

Monday, November 05, 2007

Today, once again, I have been reminded that God is in control; and that even before this world was created, He knew "everything" about me. He knows everything about you too!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."~ Jeremiah 29:11

As I sit in awe of the work that God has accomplished in my life, I like to ponder...where will this journey take me?

I'm pondering now...

As I look back at my life, I am acutely aware of the pain and suffering, as well as the many joys and accomplishments that have brought me to where I am today.

I remember the pain well, as "pressing through" some of the struggles took everything in me (and then some)...because all I wanted - was for the pain to stop and the trial to be over.

Can you relate?

I am so thankful that God's Word reminds me that my"struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."~ Ephesians 6:12 NIV

This verse alone is a powerful reminder that we need to use the authority we have in Christ to defeat the enemy.

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." ~ Galatians 5:1 NIV

I hope that you will take time to watch this video. Some of you may have seen it before, but it is worth watching again.

Press on...
