God is on your side ...

The Lord will fight for you." Exodus 14:14

I read these words and draw in a deep breath. I need them right now. Don't we all? Oh, we may not go to war.
But we fight...
for relationships
for dreams

We battle...
against illness
against discouragement
I think of you staring at the screen, perhaps feeling your strength is small. Oh, yes, I know what that's like.
But victory isn't up to us.
And those words you sometimes hear?
"You're not worth fighting for."
They're a lie. Nothing more.
This is the truth from the heart of One who calls you His own:
You are loved.
You are worth fighting for.
You are even worth dying for.
So go into your day, strong friend, knowing that nothing can defeat you.
You've already won.

That is beautiful, Saija. But that last picture, well, don't know if you'd ever catch me on that thing. :)Hugs ~

Dear Saija,
I will and have to rest in the truth that the battle is won once and for all on Calvary.
I cannot trust my own feelings; they swing like candles in the wind.
I am graceful for the season we are entering; the Easter week.
Even if it hurts, I cannot have the wonder of redemption repeated often enough.
I was there, when they crucified my Lord.
from Felisol

So many times throughout my life, I have depended upon the Lord to fight for me. When I was too weak to carry on, He carred me. How thankful I am that I can trust Him! Beautiful words of encouragement! Hope you're having a great week!

Many hugs.............

I'm not big on heights. Really, though it is a fear of, not the falling, but the splatting. I want to say I could trust that much, but....
