Through the Valley...

Is anyone here right now? Have you been lately? If not...praise God, you need to stand firm and fight the battle for the rest of us that have been captured in the valley. I'm battling through a valley right now, God is with me, but I'm still afraid. I'm facing the fear, everyday through prayer and patience, persistence and faithfulness. Just know that your sister in Christ is fighting a battle, a spiritual battle. The enemy is on a warpath, but he won't win...I won't let him. This valley, is dark and desolate...I don't know why I'm here, or really how I wound up here...but I'm stumbling, clawing, waging through it. For the past few days the Lord has had to carry me, literally. I had little interest in anything other than sleeping, but he said nope...not gonna happen. My heart has been heavy laden. Lots of stirrings in my soul has crept to the surface. There is a reason for this season, but frankly this is one crappy season I'd just as soon skip and pass it on by. The Lord has other plans for me, this I know in my heart. He has bigger plans for Andy and I both. Things we had never dreamed of, and as the saying goes one foot in front of the other... there are issues God needs to get resolved and tidy ed up a bit. As the weekend continued on, I kept busy, (thanks Amber, Trish, & Mom) I trudged forward, whether being carried, limping, or slow stepp'n I will see the end...I will see the other side...He will guide me through, and never leave me. All you who put your hope in the Lord be strong and brave ~Psalm 31:24


Fight the Fight...get on your knees...keep on, press forward

Thanks ladies for all your prayers, advice, and love...you are beautiful to me...

As a fellow battler at the moment I hear you and am praying and battling right alongside. As we stand together we cannot be easily broken.
